Funny Story

For the latest Scrap the Boys challenge, i couldn't resist telling this story.

During a recent camping trip i asked Maddi to keep an eye on Lachie for me while i started getting some dinner organised. Being a super adventurous toddler and camped near water as we were, there needs to be a 'designated babysitter' at ALL times!! Ten minutes later i looked up to find Lachie happily tossing stones into the dam ....... while tied to a tree!!!

Good on you Maddi! ... I've gotta give it to you honey for thinking outside the square though ... :))

I started out using the sketch... but it all went a bit pear shaped.

We had to use stamps in some form on the layout, so I used Kaisercraft 'duchess' scalloped border around the edge of the page and a Kelly Panacci memo stamp for extra journalling. Oh, and i also used a date stamp at the bottom of the journalling
... and i just adore these flocked damask pp's from MME.
I really liked the colour contrast with the Basic Grey Recess range paper i used as a background.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by... xx
