Lots to share today:)

So this is my last month on the Scrap the Boys creative Team:(  I thought it was time to step back and hand the job over to all you other fantastic "boy" scrappers out there!! 
I can't wait to see who is on the new team:)  So this months challange is awesome....just take inspiration from this picture, how cool is this room??


And here is my take on it.....as soon as I saw it I thought nautical (how unusual for me....lol)  I went to my local scrap store with OA "seaside"or Webster's "yacht club" in mind.....they didn't have either so I improvised with a bit of paint and lots of bits and pieces:)  If you have these papers I think they would be perfect for this challenge!!

"Seaside"


I made the little fences myself.....easy as, just chopped up chipboard with the points at the end.  I then cut 2 long strips and glued the smaller ones on top (placing them randomly so it looks a bit shabby).  I then just painted (messy) with gesso and crackle paint.  I also distressed it by cutting out little bits here and there.




A Prima page......

"My Everyday Sunshine"



This was a commissioned canvas piece I made for a friend of a friend's little girl.  She just turned 1 and was having a ladybug themed party and wanted a canvas made to put next to her cake and then later on the wall.  I used Prima Sweet Fairy papers and of course lots of blooms:)  And the supercute ladybugs from MLBOW:):)


So just a few closeups now:)  The coloured transparent ladybugs where from Clearcut Crafts.  I have had them for ages and never new how to use them....so perfect for this!!!





Oh my, this little cutie pie is now 8 weeks old.  He had his needles last week and is a chubby 5.2 kg already.  He is just a bit bigger than what Cooper was at the same age....so he's our big boy:)  He is extremely snuggly and just loves cuddles all day if he can (he's on my lap right now while I'm typing).  He only cat naps through the day 1/2 max here and there if I'm lucky.  BUT he does sleep from about 9ish to 5:30ish give or take an hour!  I have been soooooo lucky with my newborns to start sleeping through so soon but in saying that, they get worse as they get older...lol!!!
  Cooper is a shocker and comes in most nights.

So here is just a few pictures of my beautiful 3:)



Mason is so happy, smiley and loves a chat.....I truly am blessed!!!


Thanks so much for popping by, sorry it's a long one....I really need to try and update more regularly, I have so much to share!!!

Hugs xo
