BIG PLANS

I had some fun creating this layout tonight - a chance to use a tiny bit of pink on a layout is always good for a girl living in an all boy house.

Ethan is big into construction. He has been from a young age even though his only 5 and a half now. So these are his 'drawings' to help the Tooth Fairy safely take his tooth and leave him some money ..... when his first tooth finally falls out. The tooth is pretty wobbly so construction has begun and I will document what the Fairy wonderland looks like once it is finished.






Thanks to my friend, Nicole, who inspired me to scrap the everyday stuff. This is certainly something I don't want to forget.

Lovely, lovely work Leanne. This is a great page capturing the reality of a 5 year olds universe. Nice work! Oh and I totally "get" the "lack-of-pink-stuff". I'm outnumbered too! :) Anita. xxx

Ha! I love it Leanne, the idea, layout and especially the drawing.... how cool... hope the tooth falls out soon (on its own!). I so hear you being outnumbered - so I got girl dogs!!!

Oh Leanne
Ethan has an amazing imagination. Tell him that Tommy may be able to work for him when he is head of a huge engineering company because he now wants to drive a digger (must be a 3 yr old dream).

Great stuff Leanne - love his thought process! My daughter was so excited that the tooth fairy left her a letter after collecting the first lost tooth... "Mum, the tooth fairy used your note paper!!!"...luckily the tooth fairy left lots of beautiful glitter glue on the note to make sure dd knew it was from the tooth fairy!

oh - how fabulous! The 'everyday stuff' are the little things that are so easily forgotten - by scrapbooking them they'll be remembered forever!
