This is a very important post for my 8-year old daughter Chloë ... she entered her very first challenge!
Her little sis Christina made a LO a while back for Aussie Scrapjack, and received a lot of comments from you lovely ladies, and each and every comment put a huge smile on her face. This smile got even more enthousiastic when she received a package from Australia with gorgeous kiddie scrap stuff (and some flowers I wanted to steal but she won't let me!!! LOL)
Anyway, Chloë of course was disappointed she hadn't finished her LO (though she had started on one), and was determined to play along this month. She had finished it a couple of weeks ago, but I had forgotten all about it. Luckily I found it today, the last day to enter - pfewww - I would have been in trouble otherwise!!!
Here it is:
Chloë is the one on the right, and the girl on the left is her best friend.
Her journaling: You are my very best friend. I met you in the second grade. We were friends from the very first day.
It came out pretty close to the LO she had to lift, so I think she did a great job. Can you tell she wasn't allowed to use one of her sister's flowers either?? And I don't have any, and she didn't feel like making one herself (though I did offer to teach her ... aaah kids!!!!), so she simply drew one LOL.
Up till now, I haven't allowed my girls to use any of my good stuff, because they tend to start drawing on the pages and stick everything to the page without thinking about it first. I don't understand why a page has to be finished within the hour, do you??? But, seeing as they both pretty much followed the example they had to lift, I guess I might let them use a few (selected) things ... I'll let you know how that works out LOL!
Here's Chloë working on her LO.
My friends, I'll hope you'll do me favour and write a little comment for my sweet girl. I want to see that same proud smile on her face as well! Thanks in advance, you're the best!
Love xxx Peggy
