October Scrap the Boys

I finally managed to do both challenges for Scrap the Boys - I love that challenge site, and always mean to do the challenges, but somehow never seem to manage it!!
Anyway the first challenge was to scrap a layout keeping to the theme "Trick or Treat"
This is Connor's trick - he pulls all these faces conveying "mood" in order to get something I've said no to. Sometimes it's this one, sometimes it's a sad, pathetic face complete with tears. Hope he learns it doesn't work soon, it does get tiresome dealing with it - but boy he is such a Drama Prince!!!!
Whilst I was scrapping this photo, Connor came up and said, "oooohhhhh, here I am being Mr Grumpy Bum!" I asked him why he was Mr Grumpy Bum. His reply?? "I wanted something......"
There you go!
Hence the title, and journalling....tehe, I figure it is one for the 21st wall!!

The Devil in the Details Challenge was to use material. I pleated some material to make the yellow ribbon, and made a denim and material lollipop flower to blend.
Connor loved this lollipop - when he saw it, he said "Mummy, that is the biggest lollipop in the world!!"

Thanks for popping by my blog, everyone - don't forget to leave a comment, I love reading them!
