Scrapbooking: My 2 Guys

It looked like this week & last were going to be busy ..... until Kai broke out in lots of spots, he'd got Chicken Pox. "Dont worry" I told him "We'll be able to make a great dotty scrapbook page at some point :)"
He seems to have got away with it fairly easily, quite a few spots on his back, a few all over but he's been in good spirits through out and the itching has been minimal. Even though his energy is fully back he's still got a few spots that havent scabbed over so no school yet, and we cant go out in public (I really wouldnt want to be the cause of someone in the early stages of pregnancy catching it off him), so we've had plenty of time in the house and garden, and a few more hours scrapping. Perfect timing for National Scrapbooking Day last Saturday.

There were so many challenges on so many blogs but Shimelle impressed me the most with setting 24 in 24 separate posts! Thankfully they can be combined.

I made this double layout for the UKS weekly challenge, scrap about an achievement/something you're proud of (My 2 guys), use yellow (alphas & paper), & add a butterfly (didnt do this one so lost 10points)
Its also met the following Shimelle challenges...
4. Write in repetition - EARLY to bed EARLY to rise ...... out EARLY to feed....
5. Use Brads or eyelets - Used brads
14. Double page
18. Embrace 3 - 3 brads used
22. Scrap with squares - All the photos except 1 & the journalling square are 7cm square.

Did you manage to get any challenges done this long weekend?


  1. I like how you have matted your photos leaving red space. Brilliant double page. Hope those spots dry up real soon x

  2. well done on fitting in all those challenges xxx
    great page

  3. Great page. I didn't realise the challenges could be combined - I might be going back to do some more linking up!!!
    Hope Kai's feeling better.

  4. Well done on resisting adding in a butterfly for those extra 10 points ;)

    My two would have loved an empty assault course as well. I like the way you've matted the photos.
