Hello and Welcome to my happy blog today : )
I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Today I have a word inspired challenge for you over at Cocoa Daisy.
The word to be inspired by is 'CHALLENGE'.
What does this word mean to you?

For me the thought that comes to mind is what a challenge Louis was as a toddler.
The tears I shed over the years over his behaviour. He was such hard work.
We got there in the end though and since starting school he's the other end of the scale altogether. Personality, behaviour, so caring of other people's feelings, loving, very academic and just lovely : )

I used the new Fancy Pants line 'off to school' on this LO.
The glitter cuts, papers and stickers. Along with a couple of Crafters Workshop templates too.

If you would like to join in with this challenge, pop on over to Cocoa Daisy to play along. You don't have to receive the kits to play. You have until Sunday 25th Sept - 10pm EST to upload.
And a lucky winner will receive a Cocoa Daisy Stamp here.

Enjoy your day : )

Love your misting work on this, you do that so well! I'm enjoying these middle years with my kids much more than the younger years, that was HARD work, they are a pleasure now!

Your story gives me hope when I'm faced with yet more escapades from Little Miss Mischief Face. Love your layout. Gorgeous.

Ooh, what a fabulous layout, Lisa! Love, love your take on the prompt word "challenge", and love your page design. Your title work is absolutely fantastic. I so love that row of numbers. Love the misted background, too. Really awesome!

Gorgeous layout as the misting.

I can't believe Louis as anything else than the happy cheeky little boy I know ! Harry was a very easy toddler but is proving more challenging now. Your page is lovely and the misting still makes me envious !
