February at Scrap the Boys

Another challenge up at Scrap the Boys and this is such a great one! I had been waiting for just the right opportunity on how to scrap this particular story about Liam and when I saw this challenge knew it was perfect. So what is the challenge I hear you ask, well this is:

I imagine you can all think of funny things that come out of the mouths of your boys/men, and that is what makes this such a great challenge.

So this is my page:

The first thing you need to understand is that we are big Dr Who fans. The main picture was of a statue I came across in a winery in the Stanthorpe region and the first thing I thought of when I saw it was the Weeping Angels on Dr Who. Which worked in perfectly with the story.

The full story: Liam was wandering around the house and Erin was following him, but stopping still every time Liam turned around (which is kind of what the Weeping Angels do, but in a much scarier way). Eventually Liam had enough and shouted at her " Erin will you stop, you are not a Weeping Angel". This mad me laugh, mainly because it was an "only in this household" kind of moment and so many just wouldn't get it!

So I ended up finding some images on-line that I printed and punched to act as my accents on the page, the tardis and a couple of weeping angels.

And I also used some brushed pewter distress stain spray from Tim Holtz. Wow, this stuff is great! I have some in antiqued bronze that I can't wait to use too!

So check out the other great pages from the team here, and have a think about the things your boys/men say.

And we must not forget a shout out to our sponsors too. This month they are:

 A prize pack worth $15 from Flutterby Designs would be awesome!
