Can't believe how many comments a cheeky pic of my son inspired LOL. Yesterday he tripped and cut his forehead on a wooden traction engine - an ambulance ride, a couple of stitches and a lollipop later he's making mischief again -including cleaning my windows with mud - as if they weren't dirty enough. This is going to be an interesting term break, I can feel it now!

It's a bath, he told me!
Why are you putting your pants on Ethan, why did you take them off?
It's a bath!
I looked @ the other end of the box & a tell tale wet patch indicates mischief!
Why did you do a wee in a box ethan?
It's a bath!
Now I know what Ethan does in the bath (his poor sisters). Maybe we will give him showers from now on!

Found a challenge on the honest scrapper blog (well I made it into a challenge for me) that I took on for the Wakatipu Scrap 'n' Chat last night. The other four layouts are in the next post down!
The challenge was to put the following in a box & do your next five layouts from it only (made for light travelling to a crop too - apart from taking my sewing machine):
* 15 pieces of cardstock
*20 pieces of patterned paper
*a few alphas
*a dozen embellishments (paint, buttons, thread & pre-fab ones)
Had fun doing this & I think it will be my 'crop thing' from now on in - no more getting annoyed that i didn't bring this one thing that I desperately needed....
any way thanks for visiting!

Love seeing the bulbs sprout little stems that grow taller & taller, buds then appearing on the ends and they yellow and eventually the daffodil appears. I think the last photo is of a fresia - love the smell of these - fresias & christmas lily's have to be my favourite scents - like jasmine & hyacinth too though! Soft & subtle rose scents are beautiful too!
