Scrap the girls challenge: September - the beginning of spring! Scrap a Layout using a photo of a "first" or "new beginning" - examples could be, first day of school, first haircut, new home, new marriage - the possibilities are endless!Extra criteria - Use a WHITE cardstock base page, to make your entries look crisp & fresh for a new season :)
I had fun making this page of Lily on New Year's Day playing with the balloons I had brought home from a function the night before. Again, I am grateful to Tracey Campbell for my mylittleshoebox goodies, which I have used here, and a sweet crotcheted flower from Becci. This is the same child as featured on Nanny McPhee tooth....I told you she was much prettier than when featured on that page! My journalling reads I went out New Year's Eve with Andrina and Naomi, and brought home lots of pink and silver balloons. Lily (and Hayden) had lots of fun with them. The quote I have writted on the yellow and pink flower is A child's laughter is sunshine you can hear ( Mike Boudreaux)Smiles and thanks for looking.
Kraft it up suggests:
Create a layout using Kraft and this image for inspiration...
Remember you can take anything out of the image, the banner, the colours, patterns etc...
I have since given up trying to get Hayden's shorts from that play in the mud clean!
I have used papers again from Tracey Campbell and mylittleshoebox and created "ride with dad". The journalling is under the door and reads, Hayden and Duane ready for a bike ride. We have always had a baby seat for Duane's bike and all the kids have loved going for rides with Daddy. It will be sad when Hayden is too big.
This was a fun page to do and I love how the colours in the photo match the papers.
This month for the first challenge of September Scrap the Boys has challenged to create a layout about our boys nickname and how it came about. Hayden has several nicknames, and I have listed them on the page: Haydy-Bob, Prince, Boyd, Haydos, Hayd, Boydstag, Pumpkin, Boy and Handsome.
thanks for looking.
