Great page, I loved the 6 million dollar man - thank you for reminding me. Also 12 inches - what a great charity but we need a photo - how short is your hair now? :0)

Love these layouts! March was a good month. Love that you donated to Locks of Love. I have tried to grow my hair out but 1/3 of the way into it I realize how much I hate my hair long and it gives me such a headache that I have to cut it off. Great charity if you can do it! :)

Oh Melissa, I just love your Month in Numbers. I'd like to try this, maybe for the month of April. LOL
I've got enough length on my hair now for the "cut", just getting up my nerve. AND getting hubby used to the fact that it'll soon be gone. And just in time for summer too!
Oh, love the paper!

First, I love the color combo, next I was amazed at the 7 boxes you made it through then you shocked me with the haircut. Love that you grew it and donated to LOL but we really must see a bigger pic of the new do ;)

Karen said...

What a fun layout...fun colors and design! What a neat way to document life!

Great page reflecting your fun month. I think I just saw a TV commercial that Lee Majors is going to guest star on something. I wonder how old the Six Mil Man is these days?

MonicaB said...

Love the numbers!! It's such a great idea. The layout is wonderful. I really like the the placement of the photos to the left. Great job!
