I used the Sweetness collection from Pink Paislee that I received from a RAK on their blog. When I first completed this layout it seemed like the edges of the yellow paper where not finished so I trimmed my layout by an 1/8 inch on each side and added cardstock as the background. Now I feel like the layout is complete.

Since I have only messed around in photoshop a couple times I watched this video from Ali Edwards and used her free template to complete the layout below about Siena's first Mardi Gras parade.

Then I pulled out a bunch of pink and green scraps from various manufacturers: Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, My Minds Eye, and October Afternoon. The title is made using October Afternoon, My Little Shoebox and American Crafts letters.
Journaling: We took Siena to the park today for the first time. We went to City Park, which has a playground for 2-3 year olds and one for older children. It was Sunday morning and very quiet at the park – no one was on the younger playground. Siena was not really interested in the play equipment though; she just wanted to go see the dogs in the dog park. However, we did take her down the slide, swung her in the swings and chased her around a little bit.
