Well... I made it! Yes. I wasn't sure I was going to get it done but I did. So without any further whinging from me about germs and illness and sleep deprivation (hehehe), here is my project for this week's Magnolia Down Under Challenge......

Yep, I scrapped again. This adorable and happy little man is my eldest son. This photo was taken a few weeks ago after a hair cut. He was so proud to have hair like Daddy (rather than a head full of amazing rose gold curls) he was just beaming! There is nothing quite like your child being happy is there? Seeing their beautiful face lit with joy or hearing their infectious giggle. Its just magic. All those stresses and worries just fade away and the world seems right again. Sorry..... getting a bit soppy there. But after the fortnight we have had, I just had to soak it up for a bit :)

So back to what I am here to tell you! The challenge this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is "Inspired by a song" so I have chosen to scrap this cute photo of my baby with the title "Rocket Man". His bedroom is decorated in a space theme and he just loved the moon, starts and spaceships. Typical little boy, haha. I'm afraid I can't really shed any light on the papers though as they really are all scraps. Most unusual for me, I usually cut into the gorgeous new stuff :)  The two Magnolia stamps (Rocket and Moon) are from the new "The Winner takes it all" collection.  The sketch is the August bonus sketch #1 from Stuck?! challenge. I'm not sure I'm supposed to link it up due to their challenge rules, but I wanted to share the link with you anyway as the sketch was heaps of fun to play with.

So there it is... we would love to see what you come up with at MDUC this week. The DT have gone all out as usual so do head over and see what magic they have whipped up for you again.

I just also wanted to share the cover of the new Magnolia Ink which will be out very very soon.... gorgeous isn't it? I'm not sure who created the cover as it is by a reader not a DT member so there is some very lucky person out there about to squeal when they see the cover with their gorgeous artwork on it :) Gosh, I would love to be in the room with whoever that is when they see it. A big congratulations to you whoever you are!!

Well.. that is it from me today. Sorry for the really loooong post. It seems I have my voice back ;)
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting me!!
