Scrap the Boys September Challenge!

Wow - September! We are definitely heading into the pointy end of the year now!
This month's challenge at Scrap the Boys is all about 'Domesticated Boys' (think washing, cooking, cleaning, ironing, etc).

When I saw the prompt for this challenge I immediately thought of a video I took of my boys using the vacuum a few months ago. I didn't take any still photos though, so I decided to grab a few snapshots from the video and create a collage with them.

Here is my layout...

{Papers by Echo Park; Basic Grey; Glitz Designs and Becky Higgins Project Life cards.
Alphas by American Crafts.}
Published in Scrapbooking Memories magazine Vol 18 No 2

Taking inspiration from the awesome Kim Jeffress here, I decided to create an interactive element for my layout by including QR codes for 2 of the videos I took that day. This way, when I look back at the layout, I can simply scan the code with my phone and be taken straight to the videos. I put them onto this PL card which pulls out from behind my photos...

{How gorgeous are these paper straws? Hoping to have these up in the Lovelybug Bits n Bobs store soon!}

{This title was probably a little inspired by the 80's child in me...hehe}

Looking forward to seeing YOUR take on the STB challenge this month! Don't forget you can scrap any "boy" in your life, not just the little ones! (So don't forget to capture that rare photo of hubby washing the dishes or cooking, and record the memory forever! hehe) Your take on the challenge could win you a fabulous prize from Scrapbooking Delights; Scrapmatts or Flutterby Designs! (Yes, that's THREE prizes on offer!)
