Alex's crafting (WOYWW)

Sadly I haven't had much time to craft recently, but this morning before school Alex had a little time to play with my crafting toys.  Here he is stamping using a Kaleidacolor ink pad and various leaf stamps, having already played with the distress inks.
This is the state of my desk once he had finished, distress inks everywhere along with the four different leaf stamps, a post it note pad, pen, pencil , craft mat and some randome ink pads at the back left. As this is also what it looks like at the moment I am entering it into WOYWW.  You can just about make out the tag I made at the weekend (shown in my previous post), that Alex was using as his inspiration. Notable by its absence is my ever present mug of tea...sadly not available just before school, although I do have one now!
This is Alex's tag made using spiced marmalade, shabby shutters and broken china distress inks, then stamped with Hero Arts, Tapestry and Woodware stamps using colours from the Creole Spice Kaleidacolor ink pad...I didn't manage to convince him to just use the three autumnal colours LOL!  Alex (aged 5) has asked me to enter this into some challenges (to be like Mummy) so on his behalf I am entering Alex's tag into Kaboodle Doodles 'Colours of Autumn', SSSS 'Leaf-spiration', Stamp with fun 'Autumn', Crazy4challenges 'leaves', and Papertake weekly 'anything goes'.
That is all from me for now.  Hopefully things will be a little calmer next week and I will actually manage to do some crafting!  Take care and have a nice week.
Love,
Caro

Oh, I don't know which makes me smile the most....Alex continuing his pre school crafting mornings , or him using your tag as inspiration, how fab! I see no mess, although clearly his ambition to use a lot of ink pads is a match for any THoltz video I've seen!!!

I love the tag your son made! As a father and educator, I believe it's great that you are encouraging your child to develop his creative skills. He can apply these into any field he chooses in the future.
