My Wild Child

I'm a HUGE fan of anything Cosmo Cricket. They recently posted a sketch challenge on their blog. Here is their sketch:
and here is my take on the layout:
I did lots of stitching. I painted some Girl Friday chipboard alphas yellow to match. In real life, they look a lot better and don't stand out quite so much! The little flower is cut from the front page to the paper pack, the one that shows you all the papers.
I apologize for the not so great photos. The full layout picture came out a little crooked. But its been a rough day and I didn't have the patience to mess with it some more.
Little Miss Madeline went in for her 1 year appointment today. Shortly after we were taken into a room, she started crying pretty much didn't stop the whole hour and twenty minutes we were there! Yep, I'm sure the other patients weren't overly happy with us! The crying didn't escalate too awfully bad til the shots. Peyton had to get a shot to, so there was quite a bit of screaming going on. Now let me tell you, EVERY eye in that lobby was on me as I packed out a 23 pound little screaming girl on one hip and a 36 pound 3 1/2 year old on my other hip. Lets not forget the diaper bag and purse! lol....I'm sure it was quite the picture. It was quite embarrassing that is for sure. haha!

Embarrassing... not really, everyone there obviously has kids and we've all been there. Shots are yucky, for ANY age. Embarrassing is a 47 year old woman screaming. LOL! Great layout, love the pp and stitching!

I feel for ya girl! I always feel guilty when I have to bring my baby in for vaccines, and when she cries she looks at me as though to say "you did this to me:( "
Great layout for this sketch, I'd like to do this one but am a little backlogged with projects. Love all the stitched details :O)
