her art at age 5...


I have one more layout to show you made from the August Jenni Bowlin kit. I had an idea to use these cute little Maya Road chipboard outfits to create people - and then it dawned on me to have my 5 year old daughter draw some people with them! She adores drawing and coloring so much. She was so excited to do a page for me, and I could document her love for drawing at the same time. We painted the little outfits with acrylic paint. A fun project for both of us!

I punched stars from some of the patterned papers to go with the Jenni Bowlin star paper (orange). I wanted to use the cute "number" paper (by Girls Paperie) with some kind of number theme on my page, so the title worked out perfectly and I was able to use that paper that I loved! Love how colorful it is!
I used the stickers from the tiny red letters (by Cosmo Cricket) that say, "remember" and "you and me". My daughter drew herself and her sister in this picture. Little kid pictures make me SMILE! They are so much fun. I will probably be scrapping her art forever and ever. I can't get enough of it! :)
