WOYWW with Dinosaurs


I am late uploading for WOYWW I know. Been a day of running here there and everywhere but here I am with just under an hour of Wednesday left.

This is my desk as it was this afternoon - half way through a mass clear-up. I could not stand the pitiful looks and deep sighs coming from the table behind me a moment longer. So I decided to tidy up before a huuuuuge Alice in Wonderland craft sesh this weekend. He thinks he knows messy? Little does he know. Mwahahahar!
I haven't uploaded a scrapbook page in a while but when The Creative Type prompt went up earlier, taking inspiration from comic books, I instantly thought of the page I did of Phoebe a while back. Out of the blue she turned to me one day and asked "what dinosaurs were around when you were young Mum?" Talk about deflate a persons ego. And so this page was born. Thought I would be cheeky and enter it into the challenge.This is one of those recycled pages, cardboard, paint, pages from a book that Ruby had mutilated, the tree images are from a sugar packet, the dinosaur is from an old babygro, the stamping is bubble wrap smothered in paint and parts of it embossed. You know - a really fun, messy page.

Thanks for popping by and if you fancy seeing some more desks and having a rummage go visit our fearless leader Julia and link up so we can all find you :)

  3. Love the bubble wrap effect and what a lovely photo :-) My kids use to laugh when they did Victorian times at school because, although not quite that old, I could still remember having a bath in front of the fire and going outside to the loo [and I'm only 52!].
    So dinosaurs?.... Not quite but nearly :-)

  17. Just popped by on another matter and found I had not left a comment after reading this last night. Love your messy page ...the letters are such fun and are so right for the LO as is the bubble wrap stamping ....I really dont get my hands messy enough lol

    The other matter ...sex of baby .... aparently they have loads of signs saying 'Dont Ask' ... yet here in Fife they tell you. I think they must have been sued a few times and are playing safe. Boys have been known to hide their manhood between their legs and it would be a shock to enter the world only to find you have.... a PINK boudoir LOL
