Your layouts are always wonderful - you bring such a great sense of fun and life into them! I love the barbie one...my daughter and her friend just did something similar - they stripped them naked, dunked them in water and throw them out the 2nd story window into the snow to see if they would freeze on the way down - geez, wish I had the camera with me then!
