'Messy Moments'

I love this photo. My little man is such a poser & I just couldn't resist with this one! I couldn't believe how much food he had on his face & not eaten. I created this layout for 'Words or Whatever'.
The product used was the 'Messy Moments' title WOW1705.
With this one I painted the word 'MESSY'with gesso & then traced around with a black pen. With the 'moments' I used a permanent marker to colour in.

I love the bright colours & clean lines in this one. I used all scraps (besides the backing sheet) to create this one. Other things I used were, washi tape (of course), shipping tags, buttons, bakers twine, dymo labeller, page tabs (which I make) & a black pen for doodling.

'You Are 100% Boy'

I'm on a roll with these bright coloured/minimalist layouts!! I've found a new love, & it's being able to make an interesting page with a few great embellishments that make your photo pop!! Which is the whole point. I heard a funny definition of scrapbooking awhile ago & it was "Scrapbooking - spending $50 to make a 15c photo look good", which I totally agree on in some aspects. It can get quite expensive if your adding things like flowers, bling, resin bits etc.
 I was one of those people...

I once added that many flowers to a page - it wouldn't fit into my album (which I've since heard being called 'Prima Vomit' LOL). It was then I realised, that I couldn't afford to scrap every page like that. I'd end up needing a new album every 5 to 6 pages!!!
 My ingredient list for this page is:
WOW mini banners
WOW 100% Boy
WOW custom made 6x6 Hexagon AltaMatz
Handmade star embellishment (by me)
Pearl bling
KC mini alphas
Handmade shipping tags
Watercolour paint
sewing machine
Flutterby Design page tabs
Washi tape
flair badge
KC stamp & rub ons
KC paper
black pen
TH tiny stapler

NEET'S WEEK - 'Riley's Toys'

Well here I am sharing again! This week I've got a couple more layouts to share with you.
Fun little layout I did of Riley playing with his toys.
I've used the WOW Mini Cog Pack (WOW1568) & the Cog Set Plain (WOW729).
As the layout has heaps of colour on it, I left these al natural to tie in with the kraft colour.

1st Boat Ride
 Just a quick little share with you. Here is a layout I did of Riley's 1st trip out in the boat.
For about the first 10 mins, he clung to me like a little koala bear & then soon realised how much fun it was. I had to keep pulling him back from leaning too far over the side of the boat, while he tried to touch the water LOL.
