The day I stained my baby with ink.

I had a great idea for a Father's day card... to pop bubba Joe's handprint onto one. 
Excellent. 
But I didn't think ahead... No.  I didn't think ahead to removing the ink.
Hmm...  I almost went thru a pack of baby wipes - that didn't remove the ink.
So I sat Joe in the bathroom sink whilst I scrubbed his hand with soap - that didn't work.
I then tried makeup remover - that didn't work.
I dragged him to the kitchen and tried dishwashing detergent.
Phew. That worked.
But then his hand was incredibly soapy & it took ages to remove the detergent from his hands.
But all this scrubbing and what did bubba think?
He laughed & giggled & thought it was greatly funny! ...
Phew!
And wow, he's only 8mths old.. and I was surprised at how big his hand print is!!

I've been having fun with this new Scrapbooking software, it really is quite fun & I look forward to making my Christmas catchup photos with it (to insert into my Christmas cards).
