Scrap the Boys challenge

Do you ever do a challenge and not upload it? Me too. That’s me almost every time. Not this time though.

At Scrap The Boys they issue a monthly challenge. The challenge was to incorporate flowers into a boy layout. This month I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The flowers are stamped using the set Oh, Hello!

As you can see it is just a subtle 3 flowers in the background but it is so sweet.

Behind the strip of “washi tape” at the top of the photo is tucked the journaling. It reads;

There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby. I could hold you and stroke your beautiful face for hours on end. There is something about it that just makes your heart melt and feel so full. You are just the most adorable boy. Your soft skin, your baby smell, the way your smile in your sleep, all of it. It makes my heart swell. I would have thought after 5 babies the novelty would wear off but it hasn’t. I still love it as much this time as I did the previous 4 times. I am a very lucky Mummy to have such a sweet boy as you.

I am a massive fan of date roller stamps. I have repeatedly stamped the date on this page with the “splatters” from Gorgeous Grunge. This date roller stamp is Remember This and That and I use it all the time.

I am really getting back into sewing on my layouts. I guess it helps if the sewing machine is out and not packed away. I just have to make sure I set it up permanently in my room somewhere. I just have to find a good spot.
