Teddy Bears Picnic

To round of summer, please welcome Teddy bears picnic. Now, I don't know what your kids like to do, but mine dress up their cuddly toys and picnic with them on the plastic food made in their own play kitchen! It is totally adorable to watch and WeeFaerie has the perfect kit to scrap those pics with!


This is my youngest having a picnic in our backyard.
Don't you just love the teddy bears?

Pages and pages


If you thought my little ponies don't like breakfast cereal, think again!

All with Hop into Spring by Mystique Designs and MaryPop Designs


This is a song or like a nursery rhyme that my mother sings for the girls. It's very short but it's about a girl called Liesje who is teaching another girl Lotje how to walk. We actually names our girls Elise and Lotte without ever realising that both names are in this rhyme. So it has a special meaning to us.

Seaside Holidays

You know I love sea pics and therefore love sea kits. Well, this one is a beauty, with birds (don't you love the pelican?), boats, water, sand and decking! It is a stunner, it really is.

And I did a page with it that is one of my favorites for this year. DD was actually eating a sandwich on the beach but this is much more fun, don't you think?


And DDs on the rocks.... literally.
