Silly Boy!

Alex is going through a phase where he is trying to work out what is funny and what is silly and what is just plain naughty.  He doesn't get it right most of the time, but I had to say that his invention of 'pants head' just made me laugh out loud!
As it is Wednesday and time for WOYWW I thought I would show you my desk, which is mid-scrapbooking.  You can see the layout I am working on, with my craft mat, box of buttons and an ink pad to the left, my mug (empty now - I need more tea!) and PVA glue at the back and various distress ink pads, craft knife, pencil, ruler and a toilet roll (yes, my sinuses still haven't cleared up). 
The reason my desk looks halfway tidy is because I shoved all the papers I had rummaged through to make my scrapbook page onto the shelves to the left of the desk - I'm not as tidy as some of you think I am, just good at hiding the mess!
Here is the final layout which is entitled 'Friends' and follows this weeks Creative Scrappers sketch.  It lso fits with the scrapfit challenge of using strips of paper left over from previous projects. My strips are from K&Co and Basic Grey and all the patterned papers used on this layout were scraps. My layout also fits with this weeks recipe from Lasting memories of using 1 ribbon (mine is a leaf patterned ribbon), 2 buttons and 3 colours (orange, various shades of brown, and green), the use a heart challenge from Speedy the cats friends and the anything goes challenge from Pile it on and from Scrap and stamp (my stamp is the paw prints which have been stamped using tea bag distress ink). That is all from me for now, have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro

What a gem of a photo, just the one to embarass him seriously when he is older. I have never done any scrapbooking, but I could get interested having looked at yours.

a little boy with underwear on his head is always funny even while we discourage them we can't help but laugh.

Your layout is lovely and shows ingenuity in using up leftover bits of paper. I also like the colour combination. Thanks for finding the time to share your strategy for looking tidy - just shove out of shot - I can so identify with that :) Regards, Elizabeth #78

Mr. Pants Head is such a cutey and ends himself to such cute LO. Your desk is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Mr pantshead is very stylish! LOL
The LO is lovely. The desk is very tidy and the pile of papers shoved into the shelf even looks tidy and organised.
Happy WOYWW
