Happy One Month Birthday

When I saw the new challenge #333 Sunday on the "LASTING MEMORIES" Blog I was all excited.  I always love working with Laura Whitaker's sketches and along with the challenge theme to create a birthday layout I was stoked.   Why, you ask?   Because Sunday was my new granddaughters
one month Birthday.   :)     I knew I would be getting picture of the occasion so I was set to make this layout.

The older (not fluffy) Chimp is Harry, who Leslie got when she was 11 years old and has gone everywhere with her.   the new fluffy chimp.  Elle's Dad, Jason found on eBay the exact same
chimp to have for Elle while she grows up.

Elle's Mom and Dad are taking a weekly picture of Elle along with the chimps with Elle laying in the middle of the area rug in her nursery so they can see her growth and looks changes week by week.
I told them they needed find some other place for a monthly picture.   Maybe with her sitting up.
They took my advice and this is the chair in her nursery.

So that is the back story of what will these monthly "birthday" pictures will be and also her weekly pictures, taken on every Thursday, since she was born on a Thursday.

Thanks to "LASTING MEMORIES" for this great challenge.    Click the link for the details and
