The Coconut Dress

This layout makes me giggle :) First things first...journaling reads: It is so cute that you call this your coconut dress...for some reason everything that is polka dots gets called coconuts. Too cute!! '09

I really love the things that come out of the mouth of a 4 year old...actually she has been using the word coconuts instead of polka dots for some time now but we just caught on to what she has been saying.

I must say that I jumped at the chance to use polka dots and this colour combo too! This is my all time scrappy colour combo (red, white, black & pink) I would be quite happy to scrap these colours forever... ever notice how I make an insane amount V-day layouts...it's b/c I love these colours. I used some of my favourite cardstock on this layout...Bazzill polka dot texture. I also used some of my new Jillibean soup letters. I never noticed just how many polka dot pattern papers I have until I started looking for papers for this layout....and I have a ton more. These were just the ones that I had in red!
