Oh No - Scrap The Boys

Wow! 30/06. Half the year done and dusted! Seriously, time just slow down!!
I have with me today a Jayce layout with a photo taken just over a week ago. This kid is SUCH a BOY! At just over 1 year old he can't walk yet but is climbing like a pro! I have my hands very full trying to keep him down.

Oh No. He's A Climber!

This months challenge over a Scrap The Boys is to use a large photo, 5x7 or bigger.
After I took this photo (and the heart beat slowed back to normal) I knew it had to be scrapped because it perfectly shows what this kid is like atm and with STB inspiration to go big it helps depicted how much of a feet this was. I used an arrow to show were Jayce was before I walked away for mere seconds.

I have used the Bella Blvd 'Max' collection for this page. A collection which at first I wasn't super keen on, I didn't think I would get much use out of it but it turned out to be perfect for this guy.
I have used a few of the skull and crossbones embellishments to show the danger of the situation. Plus the army men and camo patterns are perfect to match his sense of adventure crawling through the garden.

Along with the 'Max' collection I dug out some super old 'Making the Team', in particular a piece of paper called 'Fan Club' which I have been fussy cutting speech bubbles from and sneaking them into a number of my pages lately (such as this one).
I have also fussy cut a couple of appropriate words from the Max 'Thats My Boy' and stuck them in the darker parts of the picture for subtle detail.

I have used a tag from the 'Paper Pieces' pack to hide my journaling under the photo for no other reason then I forgot to leave room for it on the page.
It reads "20/06/14 Picture taken after I quickly ducked inside for mere seconds. Earlier he stuck his head around the bathroom door, not a big deal except for the 7 curved stairs that were between us! Oh dear! He is a climber!"

To me the title reads across the photo 'oh no, he's a climber!' and I'm sure Jayce is taunting me to keep up if I can, he is QUICK!

P.S he was not hurt and I quickly lifted him down.
