Hi, I'm Kerryn and I'm a SAHM to two chicks. A DD who is almost 6 and into her 3rd term of school and my DS almost 4 and the subject of my winning layout.
In a previous life I was an Office Manager, but since having our first child, I have been fortunate to be able to stay at home with the kids. We do Playgroup and Kindergyms and now kindy and school and it has been great to be able to do these things with the kids.
Now that DD is at school I have started becoming involved in her classroom and in the school library. It's only a few hours out of my week but it is great being involved and gaining some new skills (as well as getting me away from the computer and scrap desk for a while LOL).
I was introduced to scrapbooking by my hubby (silly fella). He got me a scrapbooking kit for my birthday, not long after our first family holiday - with the intention being to create a keepsake of that holiday. What hubby managed to do though was introduce me to the fantastic world of scrapping. The products, the forums, the friends - I cannot imagine my life without it now.
I have been incredibly lucky since I took up scrapbooking about 18 months ago. I have had many wonderful Design Team positions over this time, which are now mostly coming to the end of their terms (more time for challenges!!!). I am a bit of a challengaholic so I do try to squeeze in as many challenges as I can each month, but this was the first time I've enter Scrap the Boys (I think.....) and I'm totally blown away that I've won. I love the inspiration provided by the challenges, they quite often get you trying something different which I love.
Thank you so much to Susan and the team, I certainly look forward to playing along again.

Right now, my scrapbook style is bright, linear, and balanced with a touch of quirk. But, my style changes often, depending on my pictures and what scrapping supplies I've just bought.
I am very excited to be designing for Scrap the Boys! Each challenge presents a new opportunity to push the limits of my creativity and to be inspired by all the talented ladies who contribute and play along.

You can make anything you like, as long as it fits to that specified colour combination
What do you need to do to take part?
Sign up in the comment section of this post, then email me for confirmation of your spot in the swap and my postal address.
How long until sign up closes?Sign up will be open until the 14th of this month...(this will be a fairly quick turn around swap) and then I will email everyone who is interested with the number of items you will be required to produce.
How long until the items need mailing?You will need to have your Embellishments made and in the post to me by the 21st May ...I will then return post them on the 30th May ...so you should receive them in the first week of June all going well.
Fairly simple really...there are a couple of specifications so I will list those here:
Please ensure the following:
1. you keep to the time frames specified
2. your swaps are not too large no bigger than 2.5" x 2.5"(for postage reasons)
3. you include a stamped self address envelope with your swaps
4. you have fun and be creative...
Swap are so much fun and very addictive so why not join in. I will be posting a sneaks of what you can expect in your envelope at the end of the month.

On this months layouts I would like you to think about your boys and how fast they grow…
With that in mind you have 2 optional words that need to appear in your title…
Grow (eg. You have grown up so fast)
Time (eg. Where has the time gone?)
Embellishments that measure …eg. Clocks, measuring tapes, rulers, grids, calendars, date stamps …or whatever else you can think of that measures…
