This is actually a layout I have been contemplating for a long time, and it fit in perfectly with the senses challenge. You needed to create a layout using one or more of the senses as a jumping off point. Carina is like all kids, what she says and what she means to say are often not the same thing. We love these 'Carina-isms' and while I'd love to get them all recorded on video, I often don't have my phone/video camera with me, and she is also at that age where she doesn't necessarily want to cooperate with my picture/video taking. So, I thought I would create a layout to record some of our current favorite Carina-isms.
I'm also using lots of old in this layout. I have a bad habit of buying tons of thickers and washi tape and not being particularly good about using them. So I'm redeeming myself with this layout and giving some overlooked supplies the opportunity to shine.
I used Avery Elle's Oh Hello stamp set to create the speech rectangle and I fussy cut around Carina in the photo and off set her a bit to create some dimension/shadow. That photo totally cracks me up. It's actually from Christmas and she was looking up at the tree, but it was perfect for this layout.
Oh, and just in case you're wondering what these all mean, here's the key:
ronstront = restaurant
lello = yello
squhlah = squirrel
klidz klub = kidz klub (the childcare at our gym)
Aw, Man = Amen (at the end of the sung 'God our Father' prayer)
fat man! = Batman! (preceded by many na na na na nas)
Have a great day!
