So Happy Together...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo
My son is really particular about his friends. Of course, he's at the stage where he only likes the ladies! One of his little friends is an adorable little girl named Bailey, whom he has known since they were both two. I was inspired by the fab colors on this week's Play Date Cafe challenge to create this little frame card of the rugrat with his sweet friend -- and isn't it great that Spring is really almost here? Also, the Studio challenged us to create something inspired by a favorite song -- "So Happy Together" is one of mine, and I thought this was also the perfect sentiment for these two buddies. The large bloom, by the way, was just plain white, but with a little ink and a sponge, I could customize it to the colors I needed!
