10 Reasons I Am Glad I Am a Girl

For my first layout as a design team member at The Studio, I scrapbooked the prompt "If I were a boy...."  I've never wished I were a boy - sometimes I've been jealous of some of the advantages they have, but I am perfectly happy being a girl.  So, I decided to make a list.  I marked the things I wouldn't like about being a boy with a boy stamp, and the things I love about being a girl with a girl stamp.

Anti-boy reasons...
If I were a boy, I would have to think that gross stuff is funny.  It's not - it's gross.
Boys like bugs.  I do not like bugs.
I'd rather watch paint dry than ESPN for hours on end.
If I were a boy, I wouldn't be married to my husband.
I'd hate to shave my face.

Pro-girl reasons...
I can bring children into the world and be their mommy.
I love high heels.
I enjoy actually being right - not just always thinking that I am.
I am passionate about my role as a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me.
Girl clothes are way cuter. 

For those of you who haven't played along at The Studio, weekly challenges are posted, and for every challenge you complete by the end of the month, you receive an entry for the monthly prize.  The gallery is wonderful, the people are so fun and encouraging, and the challenges are really unique.  Come on over, get to know us, and play along!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Tessa


  1. I love this layout! The first thing about gross tuff - that is my life! Bum is the funniest joke in the world here. And I totally and utterly agree with ALL the pro girl reasons. Just a fantastic lout!

  2. Love this Tessa. Those little stamps are lovely! Great take on the challenge.

  3. Very fun! I love all your reasons and I completely agree with all of them. Sadly, I've had to resort to "fart" jokes to get my 3 year old to laugh for his birthday pictures - in front of the photographer. But whatever works, right?!

  4. Love the boy and girl points and the stamps:) Great layout, Tessa!
    love, Jess

  5. What a great page! Love the concept and the design and all the journaling!!! And the bathroom people...they are my favorites!
