Woo Hoo!

Alex is finally out of nappies and doing really well!  We are all so pleased and he keeps running round the place saying 'I'm a big boy now!' in a very proud voice.  He has finally shaken off the virus he had and is back to his usual cheeky, funny, happy self so we are having a lot of fun with him. 
The other reason for the Woo Hoo is that I have won two prizes this week.  I won an ATC competition on the CM&PC forum with this black and white ATC, and my entry for the Scrap it with a song challenge last week also won a prize.  I can't believe it and I am so thrilled and honoured.
Crafting wise this week I have made another scrapbook layout for the next Scrap it with a song challenge. The song this week was 'Girls just want to have fun'... well with a small boy in the house that wasn't going to work so I have incorporated the 'just want to have fun' phrase into my journalling as follows: 'Given the slightest opportunity, Alex and Daniel just want to have fun and who can blame them when it is such good fun as this. April 2010'.  The layout was made following the latest sketch from Practical Scrappers and also fits with their eyelet challenge.  It also fits with the Crafty Angel 'favourite stamp' challenge (mine are easily the Inkadinkado swirl stamps),  and the Crazy challenge 'distress' theme (I distressed the edges of the layout and the papers on it). Apologies for the flask glare...the weather has been so awful this week that I couldn't get away without using the flash.  Have a great rest of the week everyone and thanks for looking.
