Kraft it Up

Just sneaking in with another challenge completed this month. January's challenge at Kraft it Up is a sketch challenge with the criteria to use summer themed photos, washi tape and a number.

Beau @ 5 is happiest when he is surfing. This is the first time he rode a fibreglass board, stealing his big brother's board when we were on holidays at Brooms Head. He had no trouble getting up and riding wave after wave, and hasn't touched his foamie again. Think he will be getting a board his own size board for his birthday.

Scrap the Boys June 2013

This months challenge at Scrap the Boys is to create a layout about Sport, using a photo smaller than 4x6, stamping and using at least one of the following colours - red, teal, orange or yellow.
For this challenge I couldn't go past scrapping one of Beau's footy photos,(and have trimmed the photo down to 3x5). After years on the side lines watching his big brother play he was so excited to finally get out on the field.

SFS April Colour Challenge 2013

This is the first time joining in at Scrapbooking from Scratch and I enjoyed the colour challenge - Brown and Red with White.
My layout "The Sad Face of Defeat"
Last years Major Semi Final was always going to be a struggle. We had 2 key players out sick and another 6 recovering from recent illness, including Regan. The boys played brilliantly against the minor premiers Burleigh Gold and held the score at only a 6 nil loss. Regan was shattered with the loss, and it would take him a few days to get over it and prepare to "smash" them the next time. Sometimes life's little lessons can be tough.  But we knew that they would get a second shot at making the Grand Final, when they played in the Final the following week. And they did, taking out the Final 24 - 0, to progress to the GF against Burleigh Gold again. Time for redemption. Taking out the Premiership for 2013!!!
