Saturday morning...

I love Saturday mornings, they are slow and everyone is just happy to potter around, including the kids. I believe once they start school next year that will change, or so people keep telling me. So lets enjoy them while we can.
I've built a zoo this morning with Max and he was so happy about it. Must do these things more often.

I finished my cherryArte Dt entry yesterday. I have no idea what to expect. I really loved working with their papers. They seemed to suit my style of scrapping really well, but is it what they are looking for? So the waiting begins :) There is some great stuff in the
  • cherryArte gallery
  • if you want to go and have a look.

    I hope you all have a good weekend!

    ...have been invading our pantry. I know, it's disgusting. But they are all gone now. The pantry is cleared out and Steve even gave some moths to the fish, disgusting as well, I know. But they were eating them.
    New FK is out apparently. I haven't seen it yet but here is my layout in it.
    Short and sweet today. Have a good weekend everyone :)

    ...on chocolate. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Easter seems to go on forever, almost as big as Christmas. 4 Easter egg hunts in 3 days! It started Good Friday because Monique, my step daughter and her little sister came over since they were going away for Easter. Easter egg hunt number 1. Saturday a friend came over with her kids and we had Easter egg hunt number 2. And then the Sunday morning Easter surprise and another hunt at grandpa's place later in the day. I'm exhausted just thinking about it :)
    It was funny though to watch how different the kids 'operate'. On Friday Max would just stop looking for eggs as soon as he had about 6 eggs in his basket. Then he would sit down and just start eating them one after another. He wasn't concerned about finding anymore. He knew he more in his basket then he could eat. I did stop him after egg number three though...

    Haven't been scrapping over Easter but I'm now working on the classes for ISC GC. I hope some of you are going.
    Thanks to everyone that has dropped in to say hello!

    Play time...

    I had some play time today. Got out some Fontwerk stamps that I've had for a while and set myself the challenge to use them on a layout. So I got the birthday photos out from last weekend and decided the photos aren't all that good, but these little Fontwerk frame stamps were just right for some little shots. They would probably be really good to hold journalling too. I've also tried out a new size, 8x8. It's fun to do smaller layouts now and again especially if the photos aren't great but I still want to have a little reminder of the day.
    I'm off to bed now :)

    Busy, busy, busy...

    It's been a week since my last post! Have been really busy this week scrapping but unfortunately can't share much of it :(
    Here is one of my daughter and the funny thing she came out with this week. I'm trying to record all those quirky comments because I know if I don't I will forget them.

    Yesterday my friends little girl turned 3. Happy Birthday Saskia! She is such a cutie. Here is a picture of her and Romy...

    The party was at Centennial Park and we had a beatiful day for it.
    In the evening we had some friends over for a BBQ, the kids had a ball and went straight to sleep when we put them into bed. You gotta love that! Today I feel like I need a sleep. Here is a picture of Romy and Charlie last night.

    And do you think my boy needs a haircut?? :))

    Have a good Sunday everyone!
