August Scrap the Boys Challenge


Is to use this inspiration image to inspire your layout, please remember that your layouts must be created solely for STB and can not be used for any other challenge.

and so this is what I came up with, I took inspiration from the colours and the stripes. Made it really easy to choose papers. Added some paint and doodling and it came together really easily.

There is a funny story behind the photos. We were camping at Pottsville with friends last September holidays and we found this little blow up boat and of course the kids wanted to use it straight away, we had no 12 volt pump so we pumped it up with a bike pump. Took us forever. Didn't even realise until we were done that the kids had no paddles, they were smart enough to go and get their sand shovels and use them.

and a close-up of some gorgeous goodies from A Lil' Somethin'. I picked up the tag and gorgeous flag from them a while ago. Love their handmade embellies. Hop over to their blog and check them out, each release is a different colour scheme.

That is it for my scrapping at the moment. Onto week two of my photography course, trying to complete all the projects so I have been a bit busy. My big boy and little girl are away on the National Capital Tour to Canberra at the moment. They are a bit excited, presently they are on their way up to the snow so a full day on the slopes tomorrow. First time Megs has ever seen the snow too. Hope she has a great time and doesn't fall over too many times.

So make sure you pop over and join in this month's challenge, I really love this one.
