Kaisercraft Chanteuse Layout for SUYS

Good morning!! It's a public holiday here today, so even though it's Monday, it still feels like the weekend. Love it! I really feel like scrapping too, but I've promised the kids a day at the beach, so we'll see...maybe tonight if I get a chance. I do have a layout to share though, this one is for the May Challenge at Show Us Your Stuff...


The challenge was to use ribbon, lace, trims etc, and we were also sponsored by Bibby's One of a Kind. Here's a little close up of the flower I was given...


And some more close ups. The papers I used are Kaisercraft Chanteuse, they're just gorgeous...



Make sure you pop over to SUYS and have a go at this challenge...there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs!

Now I suppose I should start getting ready for the beach. We actually went yesterday afternoon too, but the water was a bit flat and the kiddo's like waves! The little rascals actually ended up having extended Easter holidays, because they were both a little sick last week (possibly from too much chocolate!), but they are back to normal now. Here they are at Easter...


We actually had a very peaceful school holidays with NO fighting!! I've put the kids on a Failsafe diet, and OMG...what a difference!!! Within 24 hours the fighting stopped! Jack is often eaisly irritated by Em, but not anymore. They've been spending so much time together, drawing, playing boardgames, snuggling together on the couch with their guinea pigs, and not a single argument. Jack has even been been helping me tuck Em into bed at night and giving her a kiss goodnight. I don't know who is more shocked about it, me or Em! It's just amazing the effect food can have on kids.

Because it was Easter, we used chocolate as our first food challenge, and discovered it was a definate no-no. Mr Cranky Pants came back. We're trying vegies this week. Em doesn't seem to be food sensitive at all, although since starting the diet she has become obsessed with times tables, (which she hasn't even started learning at school yet) and her drawings have become much more detailed, so maybe it's making her concentrate more. It will be a bit hard to tell, because she generally gets all A's on her report card, but last time Jack got B's and C's, so I'm hoping to see some A's this time!

Ok, enough rambling from me! The kids are in their swimmers already, so I'd better go get ready for the beach. Hope you have a fabulous day!!

Absolutely love this layout Sam, totally agree with the diet idea, I have hardly any junk in this house to eat, and Nate eats lots of fruit and all is well, Easter was a classic example with a Mr. Cranks here too. Hope you have a great time at the beach. Love to you, your girl is looking more and more like her beautiful mum. Melx
