Being a Mom is a Dirty job

Well this weekend is Mothers Day and of course Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day. So over at Memorable Seasons are having an online crop. We arent having a BUNCH of challenges just a few to get you going and try to win some prizes. We understand that its Mothers Day weekend so we dont wanna overwhelm you with challenges. So if you need to get your scrap on come join us.

Here is my challenge for the crop.
Being a Mom we have all kinds of dirty duties, mopping, dirty laundry, clean up sick kids and so on and so on. So my challenge to you is to scrap from the phrase
"Being a Mom is a Dirty job". That is sooo wide open for interpretation. As for me I took it literally and scrapped some photos of me and my boys and the local Mud Bog during the County Fair. I took them by myself, cant remember why Dad wasnt there but anyways we had a good time.
Here's my example

I took some brown acrylic paint mixed it with a lil bit of water and went to town splatting it all over the page and add some photos and journaling and WHA LA! I used some Echo Park, playground, walk in the park and lil boys line. Dont they just mix together so well.

Now I must add that I am soo addicted to the challenges over at The Paper Variety and this week their challenge is to get messy- so yes I too had that in mind when I was making this page. I loooove love to paint, mist etc on my lo's. So if you do my challenge well you can use it over there too-DOUBLE goodness!
Now get on over there and join us for a wee bit of fun.
