I swear Audrey makes the best grumpy faces ever. I can't even photograph them all since most of the time now she's such a camera ham. Her stern brows, pursed lips, and that mad little voice.... she really just can't help being cute even when she's a grouch! Lately I've been wanting to try doing more 'condensed' layouts. I love seeing those pages where the gals have taken a sketch and kind of shrunk the whole thing to fit in just a portion of the page. There's just something about the cluster and white space that pulls me in. So with the pages I made on Sunday that's what I tried. I really like this one, though I'm still getting used to the black. Everytime I see it on other layouts I love how it makes everything stand out. Like in this layout, I love that the papers, title, and picture just pop out. I'm just so used to lighter backgrounds though, that the reverse kind of takes me off guard. Anyway, enjoy the page and have a happy Tuesday!

This reminds me of preschool. My mom tried to get me to smile for my school pictures and I wouldn't, lol.

What a darling layout and I love how the color stands out.
