Cue 123...

Over at Scrap the Boys this month the challenge was Numbers. I thought of many ideas & chose to try and get some older photos scrapped. When our son got a new bike for Christmas in 2015, his Dad took him to the local park where he decided to try out the jumps. Well! as if we didn't think he wouldn't fall off! Sure enough he came home looking like this. I was shocked but not really worried, to which he thought it was hilarious that I was at all concerned. After all, he is a boy & he's tough!

Not That Colour!

Here is my entry for the challenge over at White With 1 this month, with the colour being Princess Pink. I knew I had to scrap these photos of my youngest, ready for her end of year dance concert in her pink tutu. She never seems to make a serious face when her photo is taken, but when she goes on stage, she always looks beautiful. When her dance teacher announced that the class would be wearing pink for their performance, Tabitha's repsonse was exactly that - Not that colour! Pink is her least favourite colour! When buying her own tutu, I couldn't even look at the pretty pink ones, it had to be her most favourite colour of blue! She's a funny kid ;)

Be Proud of Yourself

Over at 123 Challenge blog, the criteria for the challenge was the colour blue, the word proud & the technique, stars. I have really been trying to use up some of my stash, so when I found this kit from Funky Flairs, I thought it would fit in perfectly. At first I thought it was too simple, but the more I looked at it, the more I loved it - even hubby commented on how much he liked it! So, here is my boy, published in our local paper, being nominated for a sports award! He was interviewed & had 100's of photos taken by the paper's photographer. He makes me so proud :)

Make a Wish

Over at Show Us Your Stuff, they had a moodboard challenge this month. With it's Summery feel & bright colours, I had to use these photos of Tabitha at her 9th birthday party blowing out candles and making a wish. Being born in February, they were perfect to capture that Summery feel. This is my first time entering a challenge for SUYS!
