My scanner/printer isn't happy :(

 I have one of those all in one scanner/printer HP thingies and every now and then it throws a wobbler. It was scanning fine and printing naff, so I fixed it. Now it's printing perfectly and scanning a bit iffy! I have 3 layouts to share but one of the scans is so naff I can't post it - I'll try again tomorrow. these scan's will do for now.

Here are my boys playing scared on holiday in Scotland. There was a coastal walk with one huge garden that was filled with sculptures and statues - some of which were a bit spooky!!! So of course my little actors played scared!!! I bought a few sheets of Bella Blvd "Too cute to spook" with that "hmm I'll never use it, but it's cute so I'm going to buy it" feeling. Happily I went down a "less is more" route with it and it worked. Of course it means I have loads of it left... and I'll never use it.... but it's cute..... lol ;)

 This LO is also in Scotland and also has a little ham actor in it! Sammy was sulking about a frisbee for goodness sake! He is so good at sulking I thought I'd document it to torment him with in future years!
Isn't that why we scrap??? lol

Happy Halloween!

We had a fab Halloween party here on Tuesday. All 15 kiddies seemed to have a fab time and the mums didn't appear to be too frazzled when they left! The boys and I spent most of Monday afternoon decorating the house, including mummifying the table (see above) and hanging my first attempt at bunting (hastily made on Sunday night
Between them Helen and Lou took around 200 photos - watch this space for Layouts!!

This month's challenge on Sarahscards is all about my latest favourite pastime; Pinterest! The challenge is to take inspiration from their Pinterest board
I used these pinwheels (that I had already pinned on my own board!)
 and this little paper plane
but I changed it to a dandelion CLOCK:
I had a journalling mishap (AGAIN!!!) but managed to cover it with a little kraft tile and then added a few more so it didn't look so out of place.

I'll enter this one to the challenge but i think I'll be trying the cute little folded hearty-flower thingies too, maybe on a girly LO of my niece :)

Not perfect

My lovely mum-in-law took this photo of Josh and Sam a while back to show me how they had spent some of their time together when I was at work. They are watching TV quite happily together. Apparently they quite often sit in this chair together to watch TV but on this day Sam had slung his arm around his big brother and they were all snuggled up. The photo is out of focus and blurry but so what? It captures such a cute moment I had to scrap it - hence the title. The title also reflects the layout - not perfect! I was loving it, then I out the heart mask on and misted and it looked NAFF. Then I tried to save it, tried to save it a bit more..... and I'm not loving it. Ah well - the title says it all.
This one is inspired by Gems at Sarahscards with her post about using banners. Josh didn't want to pose for hours like James did, he just wanted to explore the rock pools. Thankfully he managed one quick pose before he adventured off away from me and my camera! I used Jillybean Soup papers (for both LO's actually) and my fab 83p postage stamp punch ;)
Have a great Tuesday (I love Tuesday! No kids!!)
Say hi x
