In the Beginning

I'm constantly amazed at the way my children's minds work. They surprise me with saying the funniest things as they try and figure out the way the world works.

I'm not sure if it's because Munchy thinks her Daddy is really old (!!) or if she was getting confused about the Creation stroy, or where she got this idea from, but out of nowhere she asks him, "When did God make you? Were you the first person God made?" What a funny little Munchkin she is :-)

I cracked open my Boardwork kit from Studio Calico and made this layout to document these crazy everyday moments. I made sure to add some book paper, fussy cutting and hand-stitching with embroidery thread because that's the criteria for this month's Scrap-it-Lah challenge.

You know I always add sewing to my layouts - if for nothing else I feel more confident that my pages will hold together! And whilst I love the look of hand-stitching on pages I'm generally too lazy to do it myself. So thanks to this challenge for pushing me in the right direction :-)

And I couldn't resist this happy smiling bright and fun photo of Munchy which captures her personality perfectly. Yes, I'm still working my way through a bunch of holiday snaps! More coming soon I promise.

Come back on Monday for a real treat. is holding thier very first blog hop and I'm up first!! There'll be plenty of inspiration and a tonne of prizes along the way so make sure to mark it on your calander.
