kids creations!!!!

well the kidlets have finally done their pages for boutiques kids comp for march.....nothing quite like cutting it fine!!!! chantelle had done hers yesterday and entered it but when ethan did his last night and used bling she decided she just had to use some here is her revised layout with a touch, mmmmm, of added bling!!!!!!
ethan did a great job of his layout again! he inked the chipboard and stuck everything down himself, after moving the position of the photos three times! then he added the bling......i know i am bias but i think he did a great job!!! the only thing i had to help with was getting the bling off the backing sheet as his chubby little fingers just wouldn't do it!! god love it!!!! oh and i put the tape runner on the back of things cause he had trouble getting the angle right to do it but he placed everything down......

now little miss ebbie is a flower junkie i have decided!!! when she decides to do a page she keeps going straight for the flower stash!!! again she has stuck down a photo put flowers all around and is totally happy!!!! the photo is a cutie from our egg hunt on easter sunday...the little cheeky chops loved rubbing it in everytime she found one.....the letters i handed her in order but she stuck them down herself.......great job munchkins!!!

there are alot of beautiful pages in the comp again this month and all the kids should be VERY PROUD of the efforts.....i am glad i am not chels having to choose a winner from sooo many wonderful pages....what am i saying i do have to choose a winner tommorrow from my comp and there are heaps of totally AMAZING pages to pick it is going to be a hard decision but i will make it and post all winners from both comps on the blog by lunch time tuesday....
