It's Stacy Julian week! It's Stacy Julian week!

This week, over at the Core'dinations blog, we are celebrating the release of the new Stacy Julian Core Impressions Happy Colors collection.
Over the weekend I put the final touches on this layout that I made of my daughter, Ema. A few weeks ago she broke her pinkie finger in the back door and they had to put a splint on her whole arm until she could see a hand specialist. She just wears a finger splint now but I loved her spunky and casual attitude towards the whole situation. The other photos are just other snap shots of what makes Ema so friggin' awesome. She's just full of happy colours!
Be sure to drop by the Core'dinations blog this week to check out other projects made by the design team members.
Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (Stacy Julian Happy Colors Core Impressions collection), Jillibean Soup corrugated alphas, Martha Steward butterfly punch, Making Memories sanding block, Technique Tuesday stamps, Tsukineko ink, Helmar layering tape, and Glue Dots.
