Oops, I forgot to post this LO for Boymeetsgirlchallenge. The first part of the month we are to construct a boy LO……………using grunge. Well, that is not hard for me!!! This LO is also for October’s week one of the Child’s Play Challenge.…………………..Barbie. At first I thought……..oh boy…….how am I going to do a LO using Barbie as inspiration………….I have boys and do not really care for pink. Well, my Sister in Law mentioned Barbie had a Jeep. Bingo…………..I can do this!!! We have a Jeep that Dennis bought completely wrecked……it was rolled. Him and Daniel have spent the last two years rebuilding it……there is still more to do but we have it on the road and have enjoyed cruising in it this summer. Dennis has spent countless hours with the boys teaching them how to repair and do things by themselves………… to be self-sufficient!

  7. Love the how you explained the Barbie to Jeep connection- brilliant idea! And you’re right- a grunge layout about a boy is right up your alley. No one does grunge as beautifully as you do. Always in awe of your work. Love the symmetry of the layout and the tread on the background is perfect. Thanks for playing along at CPC!
