Scrap it with a Song

This weeks song at Scrap it With a Song is Once Upon a Dream sung by Emily Osment. For those of you that don't know who she is she plays Lily on Hannah Montana, or we can go farther back and she played in Spy Kids 2 (the little blond girl). The song is a remake of Disney's Once Upon a Dream in Sleeping Beauty that was made for the updated version last year.

Let me tell you....when I saw this I was not too happy. Don't get me wrong....I love the song, but if you look back at my older posts you will see that I just posted a layout of my husband and my youngest son titled Once Upon a Dream. I think that linking back to old posts is cheating so I had to come up with something new.

While I was looking for pictures for a different layout I came across these pictures of me when I was about 2 years old pretending to be pregnant and then with a baby doll. When I came across the photos of me pregnant with my 2nd son I knew what I wanted to make.

I took some of the flowers I have been makeing (thank you Nanne) and I loved how they looked. Then the layout just kind of took on a life of its own.

I used the sketch from Been There, Done That, Have the Layout but I turned it on its side

I got the title from Scrap it with a Song

The buttons are from Hobby Lobby mixed bags

The font is from Disney's Dreams come True cart

The bottom paper is from my stash

The top paper is from s.e.i. playdate pack

This layout also qualifies for:

Been There, Done That, Have the Layout: the sketch turned on its side
Practical Scrappers: buttons

UPDATE: This layout made top 5 at Scrap it With a Song!!!
