At the start of the school holidays, we went on a camping trip. While camping/caravaning is not my favourite thing in the world to do, I love the opportunity to take time out from the stresses of life and relax. Knowing that we were heading away for 10 days, I packed a few scrap supplies to keep me entertained. When Lachie saw my stash he begged to do as layout. Here is what he came up with and with no help from me. He simply watched what I was doing and then went on his way.
I think he shares my love of mist splatters, wood veneers, flair and foam thickers lol.
Recently, I spent the day scrapping away with Donna White - one of the most talented scrappers I know. I am so lucky to live in the same town as her and look forward to our get togethers. She scrapped this layout of Mitchell for me.
To say I love it is an understatement! Thanks Donna. S xoxo
While I am not into PL as such, I am amassing quite a collection of Project Life cards. Thanks to the inspiration of Donna, I am embracing using PL cards on layouts in place of patterned paper. Here is a layout using cards from the Honey, Maggie Holmes and Dear Lizzy collections
Both of our sons swim competitively. While our youngest little man has to wait another year to be eligible to represent our region at the State level, it was all about Mitch this year. Here are some layouts from the regional trials and the Queensland 12 and Under Sprint Championships.
Layout One: Oh so Awesome - Mitchell and one of his best mates checking out the uniform lists while waiting to receive their medals.
And what would a post be from me without a close-up:
Layout Two: Cool Kids - I snapped this picture of the three boys on pool deck at Chandler Aquatic Centre on their way to warm-up. I love the bond these three share.
... has accomplished so much in the last twelve months. From achieving swimming goals, to being elected as House Captain, it has been a big year. This is the start of my documentation of his achievements.
Layout One: Mission Complete - a layout based on Mitchell's goal to make the Darling Downs Swimming Team this year. As the title suggests, he made it!
Layout Two: Peas in a Pod - how similar are these two?!
It feels good to be documenting Mitchell's achievements. I really need to find the time to keep going with them. S xoxoxo
... is funny. This boy talks non-stop. This boy is full of questions. This boy comes out with the funniest sayings which leave us bewildered as to where he gets them from. I am sure this boy has been here before - he really is an old head on young shoulders. Here is a glimpse of our life with this boy:
Layout One: Just a little Crazy Sometimes
Layout Two: Dirty Much?
Lots of layers:
Layout Three: Record Breaker - documenting the first swimming record that Lachie has broken.
Stay tuned for my next post as I thought I had better make sure I have a post dedicated to layouts about Mitch to keep the peace. S xoxo
This month over at Scrap the Boys, the challenge is to use flowers on a boy layout. I couldn't go past a photo of Mitchell holding my sister's bouquet last year:
And some close-ups. I think I may have overdosed on Dear Lizzy and My Mind's Eye floral papers lol
Don't forget to link your challenges using the linky tool on the Scrap the Boys website by April 30 to be in the running for some great prizes. Remember, you can only enter layouts created solely for this challenge site. Look forward to see what you come up with. S xoxoxo
