July 1st Challenge - “Just the Facts …”

For the first challenge we thought we would make it a nice easy one…but something our busy lives forget to do….and that is capture the vital information of your boy right now.
So for your layout I would like you to use a portrait shot, one of those “nothing photos” (you know that photo you love but does not have a story or event attached to it) and record your boy’s vital statistics right now making sure you add in some quirky facts about them.
Here is what some of our team did with this challenge …Anthea Petersonann-marie  OFP OFP Wendy Smith ebony van der starre
kim arnoldOnce you have created your layout upload is to your personal blog or an online gallery and using the “mr linky” widget below link back to your layout.
Please when you leave your name also pop you country…ie. Susan Longman – AUS…then we will pop over to your blog, have a gander and leave some love… to be in the running for the prize you are required to have your layouts linked by the end of the month.

All links are now re-entered...if you do not appear here please add your link again :)
