Mr Mojo rising!!

This month, I have been cleaning so much that I have scrubbed away my mojo and placed it neatly in a box somewhere waiting for the next chapter of our lives in a new house ... well cleaning is NOT for me and I needed some time out so I did this Layout for a challenge over at Scrap the Girls which required us to scrap the more "unladylike" girls in our lives .... this is not a challenge for me ... my challenge was trying to choose which photos to use.
It seems that before I was a scrapper - the photos of my daughter were all of her with a dirty face, filthy top and for some crazy reason, the kid NEVER had any pants on!! I cant recall why. Now when he camera comes out - clutter is cleared from the background, faces are inspected for dirt and I even change their clothes to colour co-ordinate with that perfect paper and journal card I just have to use!! Poor kids. Thank goodness for photoshop too!!
So here is my Layout -Grotty Growly Face of my little princess. She used to pull this face and make us all crack up - now when she does it she gets sent to her room!!
The criteria for the LO was to use a messy technique - I used ink in a perfume spray bottle - so it even smells like D&G "The One" which is lovely!! the paper I used is a very old Sass Lass paper, some buttons, kaiser rub on and pearls AC thickers .............
and a cute little OA piggy journal card that was perfect!!

And as for this little man and his birthday.... never mind the fact that Daddy searched the whole of Melbourne for weeks for the perfect bike for you - took you to the store to make sure it was the perfect size - made you a cola spider to "erase your memory" of the new bike, then trekked into every toy shop in town to find the now rare "Dragons Mega Blocks" kit, what was his favourite present??? the $15 massive Shrek Donkey Nanna and Pop bought him from the local Coles Supermarket!!! Oh the simple pleasures!!! Another donkey to add to the very much loved family.

he is a happy boy!!


  1. LMAO! You always crack me up! Both about the story of the donkey and your change in photography habits! I can relate to both of them!!! XXX

  2. She is sooooo cute. I cant remember her being a little baby as she is such a little lady now. I didnt know you had that pp, love it, but then again what dont you have in your paper stash??? Hope Jai had a great day today. I know my boys did.
