Mother May I?

Hello everyone!!  I'm here to share my "May I" project from Scrap our Stash with you today. As soon as I heard of this challenge I immediately knew who I was going to be inspired by because I am inspired by her everyday. Denise at Lala's World Blog is one of the most exciting, inspirational scrappers I know.   (and my bff!) She actually is the person who introduced me to scrapping. I can't believe that 2 years ago I had never scrapped!! And now it is such a big part of my life.

For this challenge I went to Lala's World and when I scrolled down I found the perfect layout to scraplift. I really just loved the use of circles and the soft feel of her work. And it doesn't hurt that Denise and I are in the photo!! LOL 

I decided to make a layout using a photo of my daughter. We adopted her from China and the photo is from the time while we were in the US....her in China.
Layout made by Stacy at Scrap with Stacy (with a little help from my dd in the photo)

As you can tell I used the same basic layout as Denise but I did change a few things. I used a ton of flowers from my stash. I am laughing because I just realized that my daughter added that pink flower bling to the middle of the center circle. I guess she didn't think I was quite finished!! LOL She is 4 years old now and really into bling. She told me multiple times that she loved my paper (meaning she loves my layout). I'm glad she likes it since it is for her book.

Here is a photo of her from her brother's birthday party this last weekend

I hope you are inspired to join in on this challenge and I hope you pop over and check out all the great projects that Denise has on her blog. You won't be sorry you did!!
