A little Child's Play in April ...

I really like the cute kid related challenges on Child's Play.  Love to encourage you to go have a look and enter a layout (or two) over this month.

First challenge is all about Matchbox cars ....

 
 
My son loved Matchbox cars - he had so much fun with these over the years.  I can remember taking a little plastic lunchbox filled with these literally everywhere we went at one point - he would happily sit for ages just playing with them on the floor wherever we ended up.  It was cheap, no frills success!!
 
For my layout I decided to take a slightly different approach with a bit of tongue-in-cheek about how kids will use things in a manner other than for which they are intended :)

Such a cute layout! I love the way you incorporated the cars into your page and how, even though you used a neutral BG, it is still so colorful!!
Thanks for playing w/ us at CPC!!!

My eldest son was the same, completely obsessed by Matchbook cars. But they kept him quiet and happy, what more could you ask for? Such a fun idea with the Monopoly set.

I love this lo, the colours and the styling are just wonderrful, perfectly balanced and showing the photo off beautifully!

thanks for playing with us at Child's Play. x
