Bathtime Blues

SP Bathtime Blues
Kruz (my son) hates washing his hair and I have no idea why? The only person that get's to wash his hair without a fight is his Auntie and we only go there once a month! I just could not come up with a page title for this page - so last night hubby gave me the title "Bathtime Blues". Looking at the photos I think the page title is perfect!

Not many people believe me when I say that he hates washing hair, so now I have proof! Maybe they think I'm a terrible mom and I don't wash my child's hair!! LOL! Well I don't wash his hair anymore - that has become dads job. When I try and wash his hair I get scratched and kicked :(

You're Bear-Y Special To Me - Single Page Using Brown Wrapping Paper

Special To Me

I covered my white piece of 12 X 12 paper with brown wrapping paper. Cut 18 strips measuring 29cm's in length and 0.5cm's wide. Then stuck down my strips and decorated.

I really do love the new papers and die cuts from K&Company. All the these products are available on the on-line shop. :)
