Scrap The Boys-October Challenge.

So over at
 STB   this October the challenge is......

* This month your challenge is to create a layout that is about your childs favourite book or book series, if your child is too young to have a favourite book, what is your favourite book to read to him...

 Cool challenge hey!
So at this point in time, Master Hugo likes to have the same story read every night!!!!

A book by no other than .....Dr Seuss

One Fish,
              Two Fish,
                            Red Fish,
                                          Blue Fish

 Now, although I love the bright colours used on the covers...it's not really me, so I neutralized the colours so to speak. I used some Simple Stories pp....a chevron mask....the alpha stamps I recieved as a birthday gift from the lovely Mary Bennetts . I machine stitched around the edge of the layout. I used glimmermist to create my tree trunks and misted the muslin for the tree tops.

Love how the fish turned out.... and then I just added a little splash of colour here and there...oh yeah! that frame on the right-hand side is a CW template....

Hope you are inspired and keen to document your little ones or even grown ones all time favourite story/stories.
 If time permits I think I'll try to do another layout using this criteria, using my older son's favourite book, when he was 3ish....sigh! (that's nearly 20 years ago, now as he turns 23 on the 10th of this month!!!!.....where does the time go????)

Thanks for popping in.....would love to know you have stopped by....

Happy Scrappy love to you all..
