So proud of my little knot maker...

After a good few weeks of attending a course over at Thriftwood Scout Camp, Alexander today was charged with the task of building a bridge that could actually sustain someone walking across it. 
So utilising his skills of knots and lashings, along with the 4 other scouts that were there, that they all did and he was presented with is Scouts Pioneer badge.

Way to go young man!

My Little Reindeer - My Creative Sketches

So I'm still plodding through my Christmas photos endeavouring to catch up...

I loved the sketch over at Creative Sketches with all the circles and thought the photos of Cassandra in her very first school Christmas play would be perfect for it - Christmasy, but not so much!

Loads of time to enter as the challenge doesn't end until 14th November 2016.


Scrap Our Stash - Gabriel's Big Break

Still on my "catching up with various Christmas layouts" spree, I took inspiration from Scrap our Stash's book inspired challenge.

I used the clock from the picture and bakers twine on the tag.  The clock reminded me that my little lady is growing up way to fast.  She looked so angelic as an angel in her Christmas production in Year 1 in 2013, but time really does fly..

End of the month is the closing date for this one, so time still to enter


Let's Get Sketchy - Midwife Crisis!

I'm still catching up on my scrappin' and I'm on a Christmas kick at the mo.  These pictures of Cassandra in her last lower school Christmas play last year entitled "Midwife Crisis" were perfect for Brenshevia's sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy!

Challenge finishes end of this month, so a bit of time left to enter.


He's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He had an awesome time, but so glad my boy is home (albeit late)!

One Photo, 20 words

Way up high on the High Ropes course at Hilltop, but what a wonderful smile Nicholas has!

Bye bye...

I had this strange sense of Deja Vu of 3 years ago with Alex, but it's all over for another 3 years until I have to do it with Cassandra.

Seemas strange that my 2 boys can be so radically different.,,

REALLY going to miss Nicholas this week, but I'm sure he'll have a fabby time up at Hilltop in Norfolk with the school.

Stay safe little man.

Scrap it with a song

I'm desperately trying to "catch up" with my scrapin' and "welcome to the mad house" from Rihanna's song made me think that this silly Christmas photo would be a suitable and rather apt one to scrap for this challenge.
I'm thinking my family's faces are rather apt!

Have until the end of the month to enter this challenge:
