I have totally re-used an idea here that I saw on Karen Williams blog. She got her Daughter to do some writing and drawing on a piece of cardstock and did a layout based around that. LOVE IT!

I just HAD to get my boys to do the same.

Here is Angus’ version. He is only just starting to write his name legible, and that is the only word he knows how to write.


I have used a piece of WOW chipboard here, and used several layered of different green Mr Heuy’s and Glimmermist


This I Charlie’s version. He has been writing his name for a while now, and can write loads of word…but he is definately not the best drawer.


I have used several pieces of A Lil’ Somethin’ and a WOW chipboard flourish!


So don’t you think it is the just most fabulous idea…Maybe you could get your kidlets to do a background Cardstock for your creation! It wouldnt matter if they cant write, how cute would a 2yr old scribble be!

Cheers for the fab idea Wendy - I have added my children's writing on school LO's but so love this idea. Will definately be doing it!! Your LO's are great and your gorgeous boys will cherish them in years to come - my big boys do!! Hope your weekend is going great. Hugs x.

Now that is a totally AWESOME idea. I might just have to do that. Love what you did with their work.
