My Sweet Little Cub

Hi there ...

If you follow my blog you will know just how much I adore my great nephew Ross ... born with moebius syndrome, he's faced a lot of challenges in his young life ... including losing his daddy to a brain tumour the morning after his 3rd birthday ...
He's a fighter this little boy ... bright as a button and he has my heart....

A while ago he joined the Cub Scouts  and last week he went on an adventure trip to the beautiful heart of Snowdonia Wales with his group.
 His Granddad, my brother, drove over at the crack of dawn to be with him and ensure all went well ...
Fortunately we were able to get some photos and I made a little boxed album to send to his Mum ...



I used a whole host of papers, stamps and embellishments for this ... I'm used to doing girlie albums so a boy one was quite a challenge


That's my little guy ... far right


A long hike with Grandad by his side ...


Then a lunch break ...


Time to relax before the inauguration...


... then the scary stuff begins!


Can you see just how high up my little guy is?


It's just another challenge ...


I'm sure his Daddy was looking down from heaven and smiling with pride...


I prefer to keep my feet on the ground ... and I had just as much fun making this album as I'm sure Ross and his Granddad had on their adventure



I hope you are having a lovely day ... enjoy your weekend 

Till soon

~ Ros ~
