SMC Layout Challenge - Smile

Good Morning! 
I am so excited to bring you another SMC Layout DT Challenge
This week our challenge is sponsored by............
A word from our sponsor Desiree of Foxes and Robbers:
Hi, my name is Desiree, a.k.a. Foxes and Robbers. I have a background in architecture and art history, although in my professional life, I’m not pursuing either. I have always been a very hands-on person, I love making one-of-a-kind gifts for my friends and loved ones. In fact, I’m sure my parents still have a box full of cards and things I made for them when I was a kid!
I opened Foxes and Robbers on Etsy in Sept 2009 as both a side business and a way for me to channel my artistic energy. This company is very close to my heart because it represents a turning point in my life. I had abandoned the artistic path many years ago to pursue other interests, but in the end, I realize that creating beautiful items for others is what I love to do! Thus, born Foxes and Robbers. The idea behind my products is that the smallest detail counts on any and every present you give. The gift tag should always be the last thing that completes the whole package, otherwise, it’ll be like wearing a beautiful evening gown with some beat-up sneakers!
The style of Foxes and Robbers is using vintage elements with a modern twist. All the aging treatments are individually done by hand, and all items are cut by me. Another design element that is important to me is that I try to stay away from words as much as I can, for I believe that the uniqueness of my products will help the buyer make it their own by creating inventive uses for them!
Here are some of the beautiful tags you can find at the shop:
I stamped the letter with 'Let the Good Times Roll' on the tag in the upper right corner.
Foxes and Robbers provide both tags in my layout. 
This is my daugther with two of my best friends. 
Jenna is just one of the girls and we all spend alot of 'girly' time together.
Our challenge for you is to create a layout using vertical journaling, by creating a word list, quote or poem using the first letter of your word.
Are you ready to play along?
