Circle Journal: Why I Like Being a Girl

First some news:

-Thanks to your votes, Zachary's teacher came in second place in the contest, that is awesome! Thanks again for taking the time to vote for Ms. Moree!

-I'm sorry if my visits have been lacking as of late, a friend my husband works with wants a crochet Katamari Prince to give his girlfriend for Valentine's Day and since my husband doesn't crochet he thought I was perfect for the job *eye roll* Good thing I love my husband...and crocheting. lol So anyway, I've been crocheting like a crazy person to try and get this done before the weekend. Pray for me. LOL ;)

But I wanted to share my latest circle journal work with you real quick. :) This entry is for Carrie's journal and her theme is "Why I Like Being a Girl". There were tons of reasons I could name including some that are not appropriate for mixed company (lol) but in the end I went with this:

Left Side:
I used pieces of cardboard to back the pictures and to create a journaling box of sorts. Lots of glitter cardstock and Cosmo Cricket papers were harmed in the making of this layout. lol I hand cut the arrow and outlined it with Stickles. My reasons to like being a girl on this side are pretty standard: The Glitz! The Glamour! The Shoes! lol
And on the right side, I stated my very favorite reason for why I like being a girl. Something no man could ever do:
More cardboard, Stickles and Cosmo Cricket and of course some Toot. :D My reason is: "Plus, could a BOY give birth to this cutie? I don't think so." lol Best reason ever!
I love this picture of Toot, all happy after a good nap, lol. I hope you like it Carrie and I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I'll see you Friday for another Friday Night Fab Five! :)
