I love the colors here!

In April, I took the kids to the carnival.  The Burton Brothers Carnival comes to Noblesville every year, but this year was a nice surprise.  As babies dad and I would sit on the merry go round with them and they didn't seem to mind it.  Then for a few years they were totally terrified of fair rides.  Getting on the Ferris wheel was something I really wanted to do, but I knew it was a no go!  One  year we spent over $20 on tickets and they screamed and we just gave away the tickets to some little kids and gave up.  Last year was better, they rode and loved it.  But this year, I actually bought them a wrist band.  And we rode for hours.  Isaiah sat in his own tilt a whirl seat ALONE.  I was terrified he would get out but he didn't.  Keaton loved the crazy houses.  But me, all I wanted was to get on the Ferris wheel and was shocked when the kids were game for it!  I love that we rode it all together.

 So, I had my PL spread completed but found this single photo left and this really great woodgrain paper.  Plus I really wanted to share my story about the Ferris Wheel.

 I finally figured out that I could use sequins in a pocket and use washi tape to hold it all in the pocket.
