I just LOVE this 'Miracle' versatile for both boy & girl pages.  CTMH released this paper, in a Constant Campaign kit, last year and I couldn't get enough of it...that is why I am so VERY happy that they brought it back and I can now get it in either a Level I and II paper pack! 

Look at these gorgeous layouts that I created with it...
