Scrapping Her Boys

Scrapping her boys this month is Hayley Turner...our winner from Aprils Challenge.
I am a working Mum to Isabelle (3yrs) and Nate (12mths) who are definitely my total inspiration for scrapbooking!! I started scrapping about two and a half years ago when my first daughter was about 3 months old. I always knew that I wanted to keep all my treasured memories and milestones of my children but never really knew how. It was only when I was introduced to scrapbooking that I knew this was how I would go about it.

Probably for the first 2 years it was just a craft that I enjoyed doing if I got any free time and then about twelve months ago I think the addiction really kicked in and now I pretty much scrap in all my free time!! I am totally addicted to challenge blogs at the moment and always on the lookout for a new challenge/inspiration.

I had always scrapped girls till I had my son and found the pages came together fairly easily. For the first 6mths after having Nate I struggled and struggled to get a boy's layout at a level I would be happy with, then someone told me about "Scrap the Boys" to give me some inspiration and since joining in on the last 3 challenges I feel I have finally found my way....although I was extremely shocked....yet very pleased to have been the winner on April's Inspiration challenge!

So a big thanks to Susan and her team for the fantastic challenges every month and I look forward to joining in on many more.
