The Princess and the Pea

Or in my house...The Mom and the Tooth. For those of you not familiar with the story here is a link, but if you are familiar, you know the princess could not sleep because of that pea under her mattress. Well in my case it was a tooth in a box, and not a mattress, but my pillow. My youngest daughter Isabelle, who has lost 2 teeth already, is still afraid of the tooth fairy. About 5AM she came into my bedside to tell me her tooth had fallen out while she was sleeping, but that she had found it. Thank goodness she hadn't swallowed it - would not be the first time this has happened in our house. Usually, our procedure is to put the lost tooth in the special tooth fairy box and place it on mom and dad's night table (remember - no tooth fairy is allowed in Isabelle's room), but on this occasion, Isabelle insisted the tooth fairy box had to go under MY pillow - OK. Just get this child back to bed so I can sleep!! Who would a thought a small porcelain box under your pillow could cause so much unrest, but IT DID!! Or at least that is what I am blaming my remaining uncomfortable night's rest on and neck pain this morning. On the brighter side, at least the tooth fairy did not FORGET to visit this time.
OK - not related to the tooth fairy or the princess and the pea...here are some LO's I did recently using the Sept. Studio Calico Kit Iconic and a few items in my own stash.

Fabulous layouts!! So glad I joined Studio Calico! LOL on the tooth fairy...Mandi was the same way, no tooth fairy was to be flying around her in her room!! We had to put the tooth on a dish in the kitchen!! Sadly, those days are long gone...enjoy it while you can!
