scrap the girls challenge

over at scrap the girls, you will soon see my page "Nanny McPhee tooth", featuring Lily who played with a front wobbly tooth for a while there! We were pleased when it fell out!  I have also used another of Becci's crotcheted flowers; the red was the perfect colour to match the pp and the glimmermist.  thanks for looking.
Here is a close up of the 'lovely' photos, my journalling and a bit of Becci's handiwork! Lily really is a pretty girl!

scrap the boys devil is in the details August

My page entry to Scrap the boys..the challenge was to use ribbons on a page, and to follow a sketch, which I did.  I used ribbon to frame the photo and was happy with the little twist of ribbon. The edge is inked with 'grape' ink which is a bit hard to see when photographed on my chocolate lounge suite! I used another of Becci's crotchet flowers, too.  My journalling reads ' Our sweet little prince Hayden in his baptism outfit, April 2006.  The little prince with 3 big princess sisters.  {heart} u Mum.

scrap the boys challenge August 2010

Scrap the boys' challenge is a page with flowers, and your boy, perhaps showing his feminine side. I think I have managed to do both.   I was inspired by Shell at Easily Distracted of her use of a flower on the edge of a circle, on her page 'Apple of my eye',  and the flowers I used were made by Becci at, which I won in her first giveaway.
My journalling reads: My pretty boy, Hayden, July 2009, aged 3 1/2 wearing the dress Jasmine wore when she was a similar age.  He has lots of feminine influence from his three big sisters - funny, pretty boy.
