These boots were made for walking... ~ Practical Scrappers Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter and now it's back to the old grindstone for most of us!!!  I created this layout from this weeks sketch over at Practical Scrappers..  It's another awesome sketch from Ann-Katrin!!  Here is her sketch!! 
Everytime I look at these cute photos of my GD Savannah and her Aunt, my DD Amanda, that were taken Christmas, 2007, I can't help but think of the Nancy Sinatra song "These Boots Were Made For Walking"!!!! lol  So, that's what I decided to call this layout!!!    Savannah already has most of us wrapped around her little finger, it's just going to be a matter of time before she "walks all over" us, too!!!   lol  She really is a sweetheart!!!   
One more thing I have to get off of my chest ~ First of all, this song was just a little before my time!!  And second,  I was having a little trouble putting a title to this layoutt...  I went to the web to get the song  lyrics and then I printed it off, (memory not as good as it used to be) so I would get it right on the layout!!  Has anyone ever noticed or even wondered why the title is "These Boots Were Made For Walking", but the lyrics say "these boots are made for walking" , and I don't see anywhere in the song where they use were made for walking..  So what's up with that???  It's just tooo confusing for my little brain!!!  So I decided the title would be the same as the song, but the words are like what's in the song...   Okay, enough already about the song  ~ I hope you like the layout as much as I liked creating it!! 
This layout also qualifies for a few of the challenges floating around out there in blog land, which are:
Creative Card Crew Challenge ~ Vintaged / Aged  ~ I did a lot of distressing on this one!!

Daisy D's ~ Nursery Pink Polka Dot

Prima Say It In Pearls ~ Pink

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!!  If you like it, please let me know, or, if you don't like it let me know!!!  Be sure and check other layouts  the girls did using this sketch over at Practical Scrappers!!  If you use the sketch, please upload it so we all can see your beautiful work!!!
Have a wonderful week!!!

Well, Fern, I was going to go into the whole "WERE" can be past tense and "ARE" is current tense. Then I confused myself and now I am exhausted. LOL! I love the LO but as I read I totally got caught up in the song lyrics and title. I miss the days when my little girls wanted to wear my shoes, now my oldest takes my clothes. UGH!!! Anyhow, as always impressing! I look at your LO's for ideas all the time then I think I am going to be really upset if it doesn't look like hers. It is an ongoing battle. Sad, but true. LOL, TFS!
