A Cool Place for Kids and their Creativity!!!


WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING?? Is it a toy you love to play with, a hobby you enjoy, like music or dancing or is it a sport you love to watch or play?? Or could it a person or pet??
Well, for the FIRST EVER kids challenge at ‘Sophie’s Corner’ on SUYS, I want you to scrap a layout using a photo of your favourite thing!

I hope you all have a go at this challenge because 3 randomly drawn winners will receive a special prize!! I hope you are all able to decide what you’ll scrap about and that you have a ball creating your layouts!!

Can’t wait to see all your fabulous creations from the next generation of talented scrappers!! I started scrapping when I was 10 years old and I have loved every minute of it. I hope you guys will enjoy every minute of it too and continue scrapping for a long time. 
Love Sophie xx

P.S Ask for your Mum or Dad’s help to link your LO to Mr. Linky at the side bar.

How cool is this!?????
Maya has done hers already!!! Its about her lalaloopsies!!! Will share when I take a photo of it!!! she was so funny!!! She was watching me yesterday in my scrap room and she SO wanted to have a go at misting!!!! SO we got out a mask and some mists but she pointed it the wrong way (even after I had checked!!) and squirted herself...Oh well!!! And she just couldnt hold the bottle and push the nozzle down so she then decided she wanted to paint. So we drew some hearts and she has painted them!!! She also says
"mummy , I need to draws some of those lines that look like sewing cos they have them on lalaloopsys" precious!!! Such a proud artsy fartsy mumma moment!!!!
I will be share tomorrow!!

Ok so a new month means a new "pinterest" challenge over on the Polly forum!!!
This month I have a very bright and cool technique to try!!! I had pinned this canvas months ago and then last week I saw it on "better homes and gardens " show. Take a look.

A few challenges for the weekend perhaps?

Phew!!!Im so happy to be posting here because a few nights ago my blog was hacked or had "malware" attatched to it!!??? Dont ask me?? Im not good at this sort of stuff so it freaked me out!!! But after a lot of reading and searching the net I managed to clean it up and its all fixed.....fingers crossed!!!!

So today is exciting because I shared my first blog post as a Lil Red Rocketeer!!! As you would know by visitng my blog I LOVE embellishments so i am thrilled to be apart of this team and using these yummy little embellishments!! 

This is a layout of Maya taken on the day of her 5th birthday!!!!
So I have used some of  the awesome goodies from the "Retro girl kit" from Lil Red rocket! The gorgeous butterfly, the lil retro girl tag and the sweet little fabric flower!!! I still have so many cute lil things to use from this kit so stay tuned!!!

The "polly" girls are guest designers over at "Get Picky" this month! Head over here to see the awesome sketch! 
Here is my sample layout based on the sketch!
This is a recent photo of Will and Maya. It was the first day back at school for Will and Maya was a little upset because she was going to miss Will! Awwwww....!!!! And she did :(
These two have become so close over the school holidays. They hang out all the time , play.....Maya runs to Will when she gets in trouble and hugs him and says "you always make it better Will....". They truelly are like best friends. But yes they fight too!!!!! 

There is also another awesome challenge up over at "show us your stuff".
This time it is a recipe challenge............
Use at least 3 pieces of patterned paper
Use 3 embellishments
Use at least 1 heart
Use some paint somewhere on your layout!

Here is my layout... i bet you won't guess what i used for a heart???

You guessed it a "Heavenly heart" by Charm!!! I told you I am addicted!!!
So that gives you a few ideas to challenge yourself this weekend! I hope you get some scrappy time in!! I hope I do...but I doubt it!
