Kids at Play

Is is only Wednesday...?! REALLY???? Phew, I'm exhausted already! It's been all things new for us this week, as both my boys started new schools, my daughter a new class, and me...the impossible task of driving 3 littlies to 3 different school each morning, then picking them up in reverse order at the end of each day! Of course, it was FOUL weather yesterday, and I had my first experience of what I can now expect every weekday.....MAYHEM! It took me over an hour to drive to each school and drop them off before moving on to the next, paired with super-busy traffic and torrential rain, not my idea of a good time, and I haven't even mentioned the fallen tree blocking the road that caused me to make a huge detour!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnyway, enough of that, let's talk about challenges of a much more fun nature...the FOR FUN CHALLENGE this week is all about


We want to see all of those fab images where kids are having fun! And there are none better than the fab images the DT have used this week, courtesy of our sponsor, Di's Digi Downloads.
The lucky winner of our challenge this week will get to choose 5 fab images of their choice from the wonderful selection. Whoo Hoo!

I didn't make a card this week, I made a Sweet-Treat Cover.

I followed a very easy tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers which you can find HERE. I made this for my youngest son, who statred school on Monday...he is the 1st to be collected on the school run, so these little sweeties were to keep him occupied as we went to pick up the other two.
Inside is a little cellophane bag with sweeties inside. The front flap has been border-punched and tucks under the little guy on his bike's hair. Talking of that adorable image, he's called Billy BMX and is one of Di's Digis. I coloured him up using Promarkers and popped him onto a piece of yellow DP with the edges inked in green, then some black card. I added some white gel pen dots and a sentiment to finish.

I made my sweet treat cover with a few challenges in mind:
I do hope you'll join us, thanks for visiting.

Thank you for stopping my my blog and leaving a comment about the recovery chair. I wrote at bottom on challenge blog and 2 people on your team to please remove it since I clicked on the wrong card by mistake. It was never taken down. However, I did put up the correct card right next to it. Sorry for the mistake and I did my best to get it down. Oh well, glad you got a fun laugh with it. In the mean time, I love love your treat bag and plan to follow the tutorial. Thanks so much.
