Recently my youngest boy decided, of his own volition, to take part in the World's Greatest Shave - encouraging people to seek sponsorship to dye or shave their hair, to help raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.  Ethan is such a beautiful soul, with qualities that I really admire.  He was positively EXCITED about the prospect of shaving all his hair off, and fronting up to primary school the next day!  He wasn't the least bit embarrassed, or worried what others would think of him, because he knew that it was all for a good cause, and his hair would grow back soon enough.  How's that for a level head?  Have I mentioned I am proud of him??!!

Well, such a special event calls for a scrapbook page, I think.  Scrapbooking is waaaay outside my comfort zone (I love the smaller 'canvas' of a card, and feel a little intimidated by the large page!), but I wanted to do this layout to document what Ethan chose to do.  So, here is my photo-heavy layout!

Here's a closer look at the title, cut out using two products NEW to Stampin' Up!, come 1st April:

And, finally, the little bit of journalling I squeezed in amongst all the photos:
