so, there are my entries in the Mt Larcom show....special thanks must go to Alicia at Scrapbook Fantasies for delivering my pages, and Barbara from the show society for dropping the pages into town after the show was over.  Usually, we stay until the end of the second day of the show, and buy beautiful fresh produce, and pick up my entries, but this year my husband had to go to bed for his sleep before night shift.
cheers and hope you are having a fabulous day.

Mt Larcom show entries

I entered ten scrapped  items in the Mt Larcom show, and was thrilled to receive one first, and three seconds.  Mt Larcom is a town in Central Queensland, and each June hosts a gorgeous country show, with lots of local handicrafts, home grown goodies, and some side show rides.  We don't attend the show in our own town, but prefer to travel to Mt Larcom.

Thanks for all the lovely comments, Ladies.
For those of you who would like to know, my journalling reads as:
Hayden, you are 4 1/3 in this photo, which was taken at home during school holidays, on Friday July 2 2010.
You mostly wear size 4 clothes, and UK size 30 shoes.
You are 108.5cm tall, and weigh 19kg.
You attend kindy five days a fortnight, which you love. It is very difficult to collect you from kindy, as you always want to stay longer and play with your friends.
You love food.
Your favourite food is spaghetti, and when out you like to order spaghetti with sauce on the side. You also enjoy vanilla ice cream, and are an absolute fruit bat. Lately, you like me to peel your apple, although you then eat both the peel and the apple.
You were only weaned four months ago, as you are now a big boy.
You are such a joy to have in our family. Love you buddy, XXX Mummy.
So, that's my page's journalling. We have four children with three daughters, and only one son, so challenge pages for Scrap the boys will always be of Hayden! TFL Alannah
