Fashion victim?!

Who would have thought that a 2 year old boy would have a strong sense of fashion. OK so it isn’t my idea of fashion but Alex has a definite idea as to what he would like to wear and the most important part of the outfit is that it has to include a cardigan…he doesn’t want to wear jumpers at the moment just cardigans and they have to be done up. Now this can be tricky as he usually needs a clean one every day and he only owns 4, so for three days out of 4 we have upset and a battle to get him dressed when he realises that he isn’t going to get to wear a cardigan! Cardigans are not the end of the story however, trousers are important (he has two pairs which he particularly wants to wear most days), he has to wear Bob the builder socks, and there are about 6 tops which he will wear. I don’t quite know where he gets this sense of ‘fashion’ from but it is so funny, albeit frustrating at times. This photo is of him wearing the cardi knitted by Granny! Crafting wise I have been catching up on some ATCs for swaps that are being run on different forums. These first ones are for a pink themed swap on Quirky Crafts. I found the photos on the internet and used papers that came free with a magazine ages ago, my hero arts stamp and some free stickers. The second lot of ATCs are for a vintage transport swap on the CMPC forum which I am running. I used K&Co background paper, Images from Crafty Individuals and stamps from Xela and Stamps Away for these. Finally I made a card following the sketch from CCC and the recipe of 3 eyelets, 2 different shades of pink and one ribbon from Quirky crafts. Anyone who knows me will know that I am not into pink so to do two pink projects was a real challenge for me, however I used up some scraps of free paper so it wasn’t all bad! Thanks for looking everyone and have a great rest of the week
