more layouts for Deanne's challenges

For Deanne's 5th Challenge. We were to use the same title as a previous layout. I have one of my two older boys using the same title. I'll try to find it -- I think it's on my external drive.
Her 4th challenge was to use polka-dot paper.

The Duet

I laugh everytime I look at this photo! So cute! My son was only 2 years old and thought it was such a good idea to play his harmonica for his doggie :-) Of course, Wiggles thought she'd sing along!

Did this one for Deanne's challenge at A Scrap Addict.

Cutting with Scissors

This layout is for Deanne' online crop at A Scrapp Addict. Check it out! She's got challenges happening all week long!

I love this photo of my mother-in-law teaching my son how to use his scissors. The photo is even more special since I don't have a lot of Luke with his Grandma -- she passed away 9 months after this picture was taken.

Still catching up with posting my 365 photo project.
