Dress-Up Mess-Up (Crafty Chloe)
Chloe and her friend Leo were going to dress up like monsters from their favorite books. But Emma wanted to be fairies, and for Chloe to be a fairy. Now Chloe is thinking about something she wants – she wants to be a monster but her friend wants her to be a fairy. She made a monster coat, but she made fairy wings. The dog took her book, because Leo wanted to be a monster not a fairy, and Emma wouldn’t be a monster. So she turned out to be a monster and a fairy, she wanted to be a ballerina first, and a monster and a fairy, so now her friends were happy. I love the first picture; love it, love it, love it. The baby and the dog are so funny, and Chloe is upside down. I like Leo the best; he is nice. The baby is going to be a monster too. I like the picture of the mom and a bucket on the baby’s head and the dad was playing with the baby. But I would dress up like a fairy.
