PP Challenge Layout

And...another weekend bites the dust! I wish it was school holidays again, I really don't enjoy getting up early on these cold mornings! I has been good snuggling weather though, and perfect weather for scrapping. I actually had a chance to scrap over the weekend, and of course the first thing on my list was the Purple Pumpkin Challenge...


The very talented Anne Patterson created a wonderful sketch that I just LOVED working with...thanks Anne!


And of course, here are some close ups...


I used some My Minds Eye Hattie papers that I got from Handmade By Suzanne a little while ago. It was supposed to be a Jack page, but somehow I ended up using a pic of Em.


Of course, a Purple Pumpkin Challenge layout needs to have some Purple Pumpkin embellishments on it, and I've used a NEW Little Girl button, a Hessian Lollipop and a Butterfly button.


And just 'cos I love it so much, here's another little close up of the Little Girl button. Pretty cute, huh?


There are a couple of great prizes up for grabs so make sure you check out the Purple Pumpkin May Challenge for all the details :)

And just because they're so cute, I thought I'd share some pics I've taken of some of the smallest members of our family...


Daisy at the dog park...usually she doesn't sit still long enough for me to get a photo, but there was a big doggie following her around and sniffing her butt, so she decided she wanted to sit on the seat next to me instead of playing, lol!


And little Milkshake...


One of our 4 piggies (yes, we have 4 now!!). She has the prettiest long hair, and Em just loves to sit and brush it with one of her Barbie brushes. Milkshake puts up with it...so long as she gets something yummy to eat at the same time :)


Well, the kidlets are sound asleep, so I am going to do a bit more scrapping. Hope you have a great week!

Oh I love love the layout, I am going to definately do this challenge, Daisy is just like Max, (15 yr old poodle) I have he hates other dogs smelling his butt, but he loves to do it himself....I tell him it is a man thing....so cute. Oh how cute is Em with Milkshake, I have been thinking of getting Nate a guinea pig, I had them all through my growing up.....and he would so love to comb the hair, old Maxi he tried to comb tonight but he is way to old and Stanley has issues since the dog attacked him so he stays away( stanley is Maxi's son) I may get him a guinea pig now....great memories.
