Yep... that's right! I have finished and uploaded my entry for Round 1 of Scrapz.Biz's The Scrapper of Oz competition! This is one of only half a dozen layouts I have created this year so far, so to have completed it with a 5 week old and within the alloted time frame is quite the achievement for me!
The criteria for Round 1 were;
- your or someone else's dreams/plans/hopes
- a scene as your background
- include the seven colours of the rainbow
- an element of movement
Here's my take;
Poor neglected Oliver now has his very first layout! The photo I have used here was taken when he was 3 days old, just an hour or so before we brought him home from hospital. You'll notice it is very similar to the photo I used on his birth announcements... I had taken literally 50 or 60 photos during this shoot that I set up in my hospital room... I was bored ok!!! Hehehe!
Ollie had another 50 or 60 photos taken of him on Sunday afternoon during his first visit to the beach. He loved it! We mostly sat on the sand and watched James and Til, but he did go for a little 'dingle' (that's our family word for paddling your feet!) with Daddy. Daddy was a bit too slow to get away from a wave... it splashed on Ollie and in his face! He was drenched afterward but never complained! Here's a few pics;
I also took a few snaps of Tilly yesterday while she play in a box leftover from the nursery furniture. She's never really got into playing with big boxes, but as you can see she had a ball with this one! This was my fave photo;
Thanks for popping by!
