Watch Out!

I know I have been sharing a lot of serious pages lately, so today I wanted to share an older more light-hearted one.  It is one of my favorite simple pages that I did. I'm not sure if I have ever shared it on the blog. But if I have, it has been a while. :)
I used all Basic Grey Wander except for the green alphabet Thickers by American Crafts. This was a day when we were enjoying the weather in the backyard, but my daughter was being a little bit of a stinker.

Journaling:
Erin, you may look all cute and innocent as you drive your little, red, cozy coupe car. But I knew what you were really thinking. After all, you had just been in a time out on the back porch steps for knocking over Evan's Lego rocket not once, but twice! There is a mischievous little glint in your eye in this photo as you slowly maneuvered the car toward Evan and his rocket. At least until you heard me say in my serious mom voice, "Don't even think about it, Miss Erin." You looked at me and then turned your car around and went the other way. Oh, yes, I definitely knew what you were thinking. Thankfully, your brother had no clue, and was even nice enough to let you play with the smaller rocket for a little while afterwards. You just love to tease your big brother sometimes though!"

No, I will never forget that day in the backyard. :)
