Grouchy Girl

Supplies : Addison Road Paper, Diecuts, and Chipboard by My Minds Eye; Cardstock by CTMH; Thickers by American Crafts

Another layout using the Inspired Blueprints Sketches. This one is for sketch #27. I got this dinosaur paper because it was just too cute but I didn't know what I would use it with. Then I found this picture of Audrey. Even though Audrey is past the biting stage in this picture, I hadn't scrapped about her biting when she was about 18 months old. Whenever she got mad or frustrated she'd bite me, hard. One time while at the grocery store she bit through the skin in my shoulder and drew blood. Thankfully that phase didn't last more than a couple months but I'll never forget her little lock jaw! The dinosaur chipboard elements were perfect for sharing that she's a biter so I just had to use it with this grouchy photo. Now when Audrey's grumpy she makes mad faces and runs to her room to lock her door, a much better alternative to biting in my mind! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

What a cute layout. I love the look on Audrey's face. Kids and their stages. Luckily for moms, most stages don't last too long--just another one comes up.

I've enjoyed your layouts this past week and am sorry that I haven't been able to comment much.

I love this! Especially that you used the dino paper (typical thought of for boys). Looks wonderful!
