RCS #86 - The Two Faces of January

Over at Red Carpet Studio you have to enter at least two of their challenges each month to be in with a chance of winning!

So, this is my entry for their inspired by the "Two Faces of January" film - everything in two's..
I used 2 photos of my 2 boys!

Challenge closed 12th February 2015

RCS #87 - Frozen!

Red Carpet Studio are running a challenge inspired by the film Frozen.. Having a little lady ensures that not only do I know every word to every song, I have also seen the film a million and one times!

The critera was to be inspired by the film and to add something sparkly to the layout.

These photos of my daugher and her friend were just perfect.  My added sparkle was the strip of sequins.
Plenty of time to enter the challenge as the closing date isn't until 12th February 2015.

Jack in the Box's first challenge!

Over at Jack in the Box, Jackie is running a scraplift challenge and I do so love these ones, so here's the layout to lift from:
And here's my offering...
Plenty of time still to enter as closing date is 11th February 2015.

One photo, 20 words part 2

It's all been about Nicholas the last week or so, so my one photo had to be of my special boy...
Love the way Nicholas just looks gorgeous in anything he wears, even an Angry Birds hat!


It's time for some paintball fun!

Back in August of last year, a group of guys were down at Tesco all dressed in combats showing off the latest air guns... Elite Force paintball caught the boys' eyes and Nicholas decided that's what he wanted to do for his 9th birthday this year.
So, I booked it all up back then and yesterday I took Nicholas along with his brother Alexander and 4 of his friends - Jack, Ryan, Harry & Reuben up to Upminster to Elite to run around shooting people.

They had a great time.. 

Blues vs. Reds (although the red team were a bit pants) and they thrashed them!

They got 4 games that after spliting one end and the other they actually got like 8 games over 4 different "maps".
 When the games were over I took all the muddy little people home to our house for a pizza tea and chocolate cake!
Jack and Ryan slept over and suffice to say, Nicholas had a good almost week long celebration of turning 9 years old!
