A clever little monster, little faces & a button heart

I'm one very proud mummy! Riley came home very excited about a surprise he had in his home folder...his very first ever school award!!!!
The award was for 'having the confidence to give new things a try.' Oh my was just fantastic to see how proud of himself he was! We've been so worried about how he was going in Prep so to see him come home with this award was so exciting! We hope his confidence grows more and more each day... he seems to be really enjoying himself at school now. :)
Onto some scrapping and I've got a couple of things to share...
This layout was just for fun about the morning I got up to find Riley missing from his bed! After frantically searching the house, calling his name and getting no response I finally found him sound asleep under our bed! I have to say I was really starting to panic by the time I found him...and thank goodness he hasn't done it again! He must've come in during the night...can't have been comforable under there! LOL
This layout was for Jen's What's Cooking challenge where we had to use die cut paper, the colour red, at least one b&w photo and the number 2 (my number 2 is in the date). I used some new Jenni Bowlin and Prima and my double loop Martha Stewart punch on this one.

My last share for this post is this button heart shadow box frame that I made for this week's Build It Up challenge over at Scrapz Biz. (Details of the challenge can be found HERE and instructions on how I created it can be found HERE. You'll need to be logged in to see the instructions.)

I plan on updating the photo now and then to keep it current..I'll use a family pic next I think.

Well...I'm outta here! It's getting kinda late and I'm sure I'll have three little voices waking me up early again tomorrow. LOL Thanks so much for dropping by! Always lovely to see you here! :)

  1. Congratulations Riley! That's super.
    Your layout looks fabbo. I am a bit jealous because my under bed looks nothing like that. I have a couple of boxes, a pile of magazines, upholstery fabric and suitcases! No room for kids!
    Your button heart project looks awesome. Fantastic colour choice!

  2. I'm not surprised you were panicking Sheree! Gorgeous layouts!!! Your BUI project looks awesome :).

  3. Congrats to Riley...That is so fantastic, Im really pleased to hear he is enjoying school more and more as I know how worried you were about him. He looks very proud of himself in the photo.. (he has the same smile as you)

    Love the layouts...just gorgeous and how sweet is the button heart...LOVE it!!!

    Enjoy the rest of your week
