Fussy Girl {Basic Grey: Lemonade, Sugared, Sultry, Urban Prairie}

I have a love/hate relationship with this layout (picture is slightly skewed - had to be quick in the wind we had yesterday, no time to straighten it up!lol)... LOVE:
  • Basic Grey papers - I was able to use a sheet from 4 different lines and they look great together (plus a few diecut stickers as well)
  • My girl (even though she IS fussy)
  • The fake stitching

  • That I wrote her name in my handwriting...but I gave up after several attempts of getting it to look "right". None of my accessories looked good there at the time. NOW I see that the heart rhinestones would have been cute there instead *sigh*
  • That I obsessed over it enough to ink the edges of EVERYTHING. (see next picture)
  • That the title "Fussy Girl" is not obvious.
  • I could go on and on but I won't...
I did this based on a sketch seen here designed by Julie from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. I LOVE Julie's page that she made for the sketch!

I think you are being hard on yourself. And yes, I clicked over and looked at the sketch... :) It's so pretty!

You used the perfect picture to capture her fussy face. Poor girl. :)

I think it's very cute and your handwriting is way better than mine. I have to use a Cricut or a stamp no matter what for my writing.
