A mini, a chatterbox, a lost tooth & a little dilemma...

The new weekly challenges have gone up today over at Scrapz Biz. This week I've set the Build It Up (OTP) challenge to create a little mini for Fathers Day. It was so quick and easy to make! I grabbed a pic of each of the kids with Paul and then asked each of them what they love about Daddy then used their responses as my journaling. Seriously, this only took me one evening to put together so if you do want to make something and you're a little short on time this could be the way to go.

(Sorry the colour isn't the greatest in these pics...must've picked the wrong time of day for the lighting....but you get the idea.) If you'd like more details about the challenge or how to enter just head over to the Designer Zone.
I also had a go at the pink/green/white colour combo challenge that Melleny set last week. This pic of Madi cracks me up! Hee hee hee...

That's about all I've got to share on the scrapping front... but I also had to show you that Ayden has finally lost that tooth!
Paul ended up pulling it out the morning after I did my last post. It came out SO easily...but it seemed it just didn't want to fall out on it's own. I love his cute new grin! For some reason our poor little man felt all embarrassed when he got to school and didn't want to show anyone.... he soon got over it though.
Had to share this too...The other night I was putting the kids to bed when I heard Riley start to cry. He was in the toilet...nothing unusual there... but when I opened the door I found him with Madi's toilet seat stuck on his head! LOL

Oh my... I couldn't help but laugh even though he was bawling his eyes out! It was hilarious!!!! Don't ask me why he felt the need to put it on his head in the first place... but he did... and then he couldn't get it up past his ears again! Oh dear.... in the end I just had to pull it off hurting his little ears in the process. I bet he doesn't do it again!!!!! Kids do the strangest things....

That's about it for now. Enjoy the rest of your week and take care!
