"Love to have fun"...Little matchbook using Scrapagogo kit.......

I came across these pictures of my boys Rory and Kane, oh and our mad dog Storm recently and knew i had to do something with them.
They must have been taken almost 4/5years ago and the boys would have been around14 and 11(the youngest one has long hair now, i call him my hippy child}So without further ado i delved into the Scrapagogo stash and set about making a matchbook album using parts of 2 sheets 12x12 patterned paper and 3 full sheets of coloured cardstock,thicker letters and brad from the kit and black alpha stickers and heart from my own stash.The blank cardstock was cut up and used as the matchbook pages to frame the pictures..{wooohooo means i still have quite a bit of the gogo kit to play with!!!}

the pic above is the inside cover using scraps of the from the kit....
..my oldest Rory who is now 18y, eek were did all that time go i ask you?I love how happy and full of fun he is here, now he has hit a funny age it is hard to get photographs so this one is cherished!!
My youngest Kane who is now 15y yikes...makes me feel old!!!!See how happy and full of mischief he is too....at that funny age too now and easy embarrassed...wont tell either of them i have put pics up here,lol!!!
oops and that is our mad dog Storm in the background,woofwoof.... I love these pics so much that i really didn`t want to clutter them,so with some alpha stickers just popped on a title and left well alone...
They both used to grumble on the way to this magical place "Pitcairn",imagine there mum making them go for a walk..shock horror..i should be reported hahahahaha....the only one never to complain was Storm!!!Down the back of that little bridge water lies...and we all loved coming here,fun,laughter,frolics,splashes storm soaking us after she had her swim,we all tried to jump out of her way but she made right for you,tongue hanging,panting and "SHAKE"...we would be soaked,wet clothes on the way home was the norm.....Me running ahead click click click......bees buzzing,birds tweeting,flies humming.....
the boys didn`t really take to the wild life if something so much as buzzed they would run away squawking....if they read this i will be in soooo much trouble,hahahahaha........
I think Storms look is saying it all here
"hey i had fun but get a move on i drank a load of water i am ......."
..."Desperate"...ahhhh to late,hahahahaha".....an end to a perfect day!!!!!
Now if Storm could see i put this one up she would lick me to death i kid you not..so undignified!!!
I hope you enjoyed looking at these pictures,they hold so many happy moments along with the rest of the pictures inside the book,wanted to share a little with you all and now you can see...
"THE MADNESS TRAIT RUNS IN THE FAMILY"
