My sweet boy

Good afternoon.  Almost the start of another week and almost the end of another month!!  

I thought I would share with you 2 layouts I completed recently - just because - of my sweet little boy.  He not so little anymore, turning 15 in 3 months, but he is still just as sweet.

The first one was taken when he was just 2 months old giving mummy big sloppy kisses!  How I loved those kisses.  Fortunately I still get kisses from my boy, but thankfully they're no longer sloppy ones!

The second layout features a photo of my boy when he was just 5 days old.  In fact I believe it was taken when we were still in hospital!

It amazes me everyday the rate at which my kids have grown up - it really doesn't seem like 15 years ago I was carrying him in my tummy, yet to meet…appreciate every single second with your children for before you know it they will have grown up and moved out and on with their own life.  We can't turn back the clock but we can slow it a little by being very present and mindful and available to share with and in everything  our children do.

Before I get too philosophical, I better go and start getting ready for hubby's birthday dinner!

Until next time,

Sour High

Hi there!  I have 2 layouts that I did for A2Z Scraplets DT to share with you today.  The first one is my take on the monthly challenge using the following image as inspiration…

I took inspiration from the balloons for my layout.  The photos of my handsome young man were taken very recently on a Sunday afternoon on a spur of the moment.  I have scrapped so many photos of my beautiful daughter recently, and realised I didn't have any recent photos of my boy.  He resisted when I asked him if we could take some photos, but once we started he happily obliged.  You will see more photos of him in coming months.

Some closeups (don't mind the colour, or lack of - for some reason once the photos have been uploaded to the blog they get majorly washed out, unless I overcook them)

The next layout I would like to share is a fun one of my boy when he was just 16 months old playing with water!!

Closeup of the chipboard...

This layout is based on a layout I saw on Pinterest.  I had a lot of fun with this one, painting the circles and sploshing paint around.  I used Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray on this layout to imitate water droplets.  You can see the droplets on the Splash word in the title, unfortunately you can't see them on the page in these photos.    

Thank you for stopping by.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
