I do love a gorgeous smile especially a natural one off my boys, this one is from my youngest who has the most adorable little dimple on the one side of his face, not two just one which makes him look oh so cute, shhh 7 year olds aren't cute apparently!

Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo, Chip Chatter chipboard letters, Kaiser bling, AC ric-rak, October Afternoon & Autumn Leaves stamps and Bazzill In Stitch'z & Just the Edge.

I've also been playing with my camera while enjoying a spot of sunshine and snapped this photo of my poppies, I really like it so I thought I'd share.

Bloody Purple!

This layout is so far out of my comfort zone I'm in a completely different continent, oh how I hate purple... I come out in hives as the mere thought of the colour but today I find myself scrapping with it!!

I've tried for the past month to find alternative colours for this photo, I've scoured online shops to find something suitable but I failed miserably and ended up using the dreaded colour and was surprised how much I found in my stash!

It features my little dude disguised as Slinky Malinki for Character dress-up day and I knew that purple t-shirt was going to come back and haunt me.

Supplies: Bazzill In Stitch'z cardstock & blossom, MM felt and stickers, AL stamps, Cuttlebug Embossing Plate, Coredinations and Kanban bling.
This is the follow up layout to the Christmas one I did below, made from the same MME patterned papers only this time hes getting to grips with his new phone and the joy of text talk.

That's all Folks

Christmas Layout...blah!!

I'll confess I love the season but if there are two things I absolutely hate scrapping about then its Christmas and Birthdays and I hate twee titles like, HoHoHo, Tis the Season etc you get the idea!

So it was with a huff and puff that I sat down to scrapbook these photos of my eldest son for his album which incidently I do in date order hence why I scrap Christmas. I used MME Be Merry range of papers from a GottaCraft kit last year and few bits of my own stash including a gorgeous tree stamp from Autumn Leaves...see I told you I was obsessed.

Strangely enough I quite like the outcome...result!

I'm also taking part in my first card challenge, I never considered myself good enough but I was invited and nothing ventured is nothing gained and this is the 2nd challenge which is a sketch and it must have a masculine feel...oh heck, thank goodness for BG Granola!

Supplies: BG Granola patterned papers, AC ric-rak ribbon and AL stamp.

I also managed to pick up a Scrapbook Trends magazine in my local WHSmith so you won't expect anymore posts until next week will you lol.
