Just a quickie!

I know I said that I wouldn't be updating again until I returned from Somerset on Monday, but I couldn't resist showing you this photo of my little cutie!  Alex loves pretending to drive the car and especially while wearing his certainly makes me smile.
I also have a little bit of crafting to show you and a confession.  The confession is that my first attempt at this layout ended in the bin!  I have never yet resorted to that, but it really did not work...even Tim who is ultra supportive of all my crafting experiments agreed that it was a bit of a mess.  So I had another go at the same subject matter (using the same photos rescued from the bin!) and am much happier with it.  I didn't use any patterned paper on this creating the design on the Bazzil cardstock by doodling and stamping (using JustRite stamps). As the photos are matted onto paint this page fits with this weeks challenge from Scrap and Stamp, and the title was taken from this weeks Scrap it with a song adapted slightly to fit the two special guys in my life. I just love this song so couldn't miss the opportunity to scrap it! The journalling reads 'Whizzing round the track at North Anston Butterfly farm resulted in two extremely happy smiles from my very special guys!'.  I am off to pack now ready for our trip tomorrow so have a great weekend everyone.

Oh I like your layout. I'm so glad that you admitted that you've had to start over on a layout. It has happened to me on more than one occasion, and I'm often I am not completely and totally satisfied, but it is a little intimidating to see so many gals publishing perfect layouts and never admitting anything less is ever created. Thanks for being real.
