Back to business :) ...

Firstly, I just want to say thank you all so very much for the love and support regarding my exciting news.  Unfortunately I am aware that there will be some negative comments put out there.  People are allowed their opinions I guess, even at the expense of hurting others.  But I am still happy to be up there on that amazing list and I know I've put the hard work in to now enjoy the moment.  So, once again.. THANK YOU all for your beautiful comments...x

Now, as the blog post title suggests... LOL!  Back to business!  Yesterday was the release of Get Picky's new challenge!  (yep.  sorry.  I'm a little late!)!!!

This challenge is close to my heart.  It is all about telling the story! Yay!  Here is the inspiration photo...


 And here is my layout..

[Carnival]

products used: cs - bazzill; pp - kaisercraft, We R Memory Keepers, Nikki Sivils; other - PLS journal card; string; machine stitching; glimmermist; glimmerglaze; kaisercraft clear stamp; Tim Holtz distress ink; black pen (sharpie).


My story is all about how Liam, my eldest son, is always trying to be "the funny man".  hahaha.. He has such a quick wit at times and is constantly thinking up new jokes.  His favourite book at the moment is one that holds tonnes of practical jokes!  yikes!! We, as his family, are constantly second guessing whether or not he is about to hit us with his newly discovered knowledge... *sigh* ... But he is lots of fun to be around and he doesn't like to see anybody upset.  That's the bonus side!!  LOL!

 I really hope you will join in and share your story over at the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you will create. 

Thanks for visiting...x
