BOYS WILL BE BOYS!

Sorry couldn't get a great photo - think the spray varnish was affecting the image of the first boy.



How fabulous are these stamps - I love these little boys their just so cute and only having a son they remind me of him when he was small.  He adored playing in the sand and come to think of it he was quite a water baby.


These are both from Elizabeth Bell's latest collection of stamps.

Oh my, these are such sweet images Sharon and you have done a great job with them.

I'm afraid though that your entry is not eligible for Stampalot Challenge as you have exceeded the number of combined challenge allowed in our rules (at top of blog).

There are a couple of days left if you have time to join in with another piece.
