Saturated Canary challenge 57....Distress......



Afternoon peeps!!!!
Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog and the theme for this weeks challenge was chosen by our gorgeous Becky. It is.........

"Distress"
so for this challenge we want to see you distressed!!! so think torn edges, super inky edges, tears etc!!!

Now for the details....

You must follow the theme using either a:
Saturated Canary Digi
Saturated Canary rubber stamp, 
or Simply Sassy rubber stamp 

So my card features the super cute Butterfly baby stamp. I coloured baby up with a mix of flexmarkers and promarkers and then got to work distressing some yummy layers of delicious papers!! I love love love these papers.

So today marked a huge step forward in the life of my little Mo. Siutcase packed and happy smiley face off he went to school for his first ever sleepover trip....actually his first ever sleepover full stop! and I am so brimming with pride that he felt comfortable enough to give it all a go and so very very thankful to a truly awesome teaching team for giving him the support he needed to feel able to go for it.

There were a couple of little hiccups in the night last night where little feet came pootling down to our bedroom....3 times.....to ask what he should do if he missed us at bedtime or needed us in the night. Lots of snuggles and kisses helped with this problem and seemed to do the trick. I told him its ok to miss people but to have oodles of fun at the same time and he seemed to understand that. 

This morning he spent a very long time looking at the schedule school had printed out for him and he kept that in his pocket. He needed a few extra snuggles at the school gate and still kept checking the schedule until bell time!! he asked me to stay until he had gone to the classroom but even that is a massive step forward for him and I am just so proud. I am hoping bedtime goes without a glitch for him and he sleeps really well (...because he wakes up at 4:30am on the dot every morning regardless of what time he has gone to bed the night before!!) I packed him up a little brioche and a drink of chocolate milk incase he wakes super early and we bought him the new ' Diary of a wimpy kid' book to read and my mom gave him a booklite so he doesn't disturb the others too much.

So tonight will be a new one for me and Scott! the first time in 8 years we haven't had a little cutie to sort out! ....gulp!!!! that bit is kinda hard for me, few tears on my way home but I was a good mamma and didn't let Mo see anything but excitement for his big journey.

Thank you so much for popping in on me!
