RAK time!

I had so much fun collecting all these goodies,can't wait to make somebody happy with them!! It's a collection of Non-scrapbooking goodies that i have found in local stores and vintage shops.














Dont you just love the colors?Well if you wanna win this Rak al you have to do is leave me a nice comment and maybe all these yummy goodies will be yours!

Okay i also got some scrapbooking done,yay!Inbetween the naptimes,feeding,cleaning etc. i made this layout about Julian.It's about my 2 year old boy who looks like a 3 year old.But when he starts speaking,you will see that he is just a little boy.


















The baby is doing fine,but he has a big rash.They call it hormone rash and it will disappear after 6 weeks.Well thats just great for the pictures lol.The poor things is scratching his face all the time.And if that wasnt enough he was having trouble with his food and we had to change to food for hungry baby's.He was crying every 2 hours because he was really hungry and wanted to eat again.So now we are trying this new baby food and hopefully this will help...

Since the birth of Maxim,Julian is acting really annoying.He is not listening at all and he is trying to push my limits.I guess this is all part of the new baby arrival and he just have to get used to it.But really!!I am really freaking out sometime.LOL

So to ease the pain,i bought the Love Elsie lines Roxie,Betty and Toby last week.And the new line Lola this week. :D So i hope to show you some Elsie stuff soon,Happy Scrapping girls!

P.S.I will be picking a winner on Sunday,goodluck!

your layout is so bright and colorful!! :)

i sometimes wish i had the strength to have a child, but i don't. i have to take care of myself first. :/

i hate to beg, but if you look at my gallery at SiStv, you'll be able to see the things i could do with the RAK!! ;)

Beth said...

Been surfing and found your blog from someone's site. I love your work. If you like to make cards you might want to peak at my site because I'm offering up some blog candy and will draw early tomorrow morning.

I am sure that the Love, Elsie goodies will make you feel much happier! Your boys are absolutely beautiful!
I am sure the annoying stuff will fade away. It's tough in the beginning but time will change that ;)maybe try to be more consistent and have a nice set routine for your big boy- that way he doesn't feel like the new baby "interferes" ya know?

It's so kind of you to be dong a RAK! I feel like I should be sending you congrats new mommy gifts!

Martha Bonneau said...

Congrats on the new baby! I'm sure your older child will adjust in time.

What an awesome lot of goodies you have there! You really are very sweet to give them away! Have fun with all your LE goodies! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Siany said...

Cute cute layout!! Gorgeous little boy! I hope things get a bit easier for you with a new bub! Loving the RAK - gorgeous stuff in it!! xox

Charin said...

Girl, you have the best taste! Look at those yummy colors! :)
Love, Elsie will definitely make you feel better. Sorry that things have been a little rough for you, it'll get better! :)

Lisa said...

Love the goodies and your layout is so sweet!! I need to do the opposite - my son is six but really short - so i'd need '2 small to be 6' i guess!!! :)

Kate said...

Ok, a nice comment...well that's not too hard since you have an ADORABLE little man!!! Those eyes! Try a little dab of natural Vitamin E cream on the little one. You can get it at any health food store. A local lady here makes it with almond oil and hemp...it's amazing on any rash, burn or cut. She says "It's good for anything from Grandma's dry hands to Grandpa's hemmeroids!" She's such a cute lady. Okay, that maybe was a little long and weird for a "nice comment" but I'd LOVE to win the goodies! You have amazing taste in colour!!!

Trynity said...

Welke super traktaties !!

So I saw your thread at SiS Tv
and thought let me go over and see
all the loveliness on Fauve's blog
and admit sometimes I am a color hog
I love all colors, especially bright and bold
I also love cool things, that are fun to hold.
I love the funky fabulous finds
and I hope to win and make them mine

Loved looking at your blog and seeing your photos of your gorgeous boys.

VexedAngel said...

Oh, wow, love those bright colors, just yummy, and the yellow bg on your LO! :-) I have been snapping up a lot of the Love, Elsie stuff, too--I thought I didn't like the Lola and Riley lines as much until I saw them in person, and now I snapped up quite a bit of them! (3/4 of the paper, both image stamp sets, and tomorrow some ribbon) :-)

And how very kind of you to offer such a super coolio RAK.

Nicole said...

sweet layout :)

love all those yummy colors and you are very sweet to share a little love.

hope the Love Elsie goodies made you feel a bit better :)

aleciagrimm said...

gREAT LAYOUT! Your RAK looks fun too. alecia.grimm@gmail.com

Aline said...

What a great RAK, wow! And I love your layout. Yeah, he doesn't look like a 2 year old at all. But so is Gabriel, nobody would ever think he is still 4! I hope your little one will be fine soon. :)

Have a great day!

Alison said...

cute blog! i'll save it in my favs :)

Lilyanna said...

Love the RAK, the colors are sooo pretty! And your boy is so cute!!

Serai Meulen said...

het zijn wel errug leuke spulletjes :D. (maar ik plaats gewoon mijn reactie zoals ik anders ook zou doen ;))
Die LO is super!!
En die uitslag, ik ken het. Safine had het ook. Ik vond haar evengoed heel mooi(je eigen kind vind je toch het mooiste ;)), maar zag de mensen kijken en als ik nu foto's terug kijk, jeetje, wat zag ze er uit LOL. maar als je kijkt hoe ze er nu uitziet, het trekt wel bij. en ook het gedrag van Julian zal beter worden. het zijn die welbekende FASES waar ze (jammergenoeg soms haha) doorheen moeten. dikke kus en knuffel!!

Eminepala said...

Aw sweetie... I know what you're going through... But it will get better...
Pay attention on when he's being annoying. He is jalous that's for sure...

hang in there girl...

Big kiss to you sweet kids

Gorgeous layout of your little big boy. And the RAK is really looking nice. Made tons of pictures of my little niece these last 5 weeks so that would be good. LOL
Have a nice and sunny weekend Fauve.

Eeffie said...

I love those goodies! I'm totally into vintage these days!

So sorry to hear about the rash. My daughter had that too, but not as bad as your little boy!

I really hope things will get better soon! And Julian, try to be nice to your mom...hihi. Well no kidding, I can imagine how hard it must be somtimes. Hang in there, my thoughts are with you! :)

RiNNE said...

Ole town Girls Scrap Club said...

Yeah, there's probably a reason we only have one child:o)

Love the layout..the colors...the big letter...the Hambly!!!

Cute goodies to give away too! I need to search vintage shops more often!

Patricia said...

What a great LO you made. Amazing you made it in between daipers and feeding etc.

Funny how a 2 year old can think. My son is almost 2 years old and he keeps amazing me. I love to scrapbook about him, to keep the memories for when he gets older.

Keep up the great work and keep on having fun!!!

Anonymous said...

What a cool thing to do!! Love all the bright colourful goodies. I never seem to buy bright colours with two boys, but I LOVE them!!

I can relate what you're going through, with the kiddos, my boys are 22 months apart and I went through the same thing.

They are now 6 and 8 and are best of friends,.....most days! LOL

You HAVE to check out the soup on 2 peas in Resources and its a "poem" about having a toddler and a baby. Its called "LOVING TWO" It put into words something I couldn't when they were that age. ** WARNING** have a box of Kleenex handy! Its a tear jerker.

Good Luck it will get better, and enjoy every moment it goes by much too fast. You have 2 real cuties!! Enjoy!

gina said...

I am so desperate for supplies, but I have absolutely no talent...all of my stuff looks the same, whether it came from a kit or not...I am just sad!
My 2 year old is as small as a one year old... but hopefully she will catch up!

Delia said...

Hi. Great LO. Especially love the blue circles that you made. Love LO with custom made pattern paper.

Also, I only recently found BamPop.. LOVE the stuff they make..

Vicky aka KayasMama said...

micayla said...

Hey girlie pops, that butt load of goodies luck yummy.
I love the layout of Julian, He is soo cute.
I am feeling your pain with the children, I know what I was like as a child of 5 when my Sister came into the world. I totally acted up....I guess you can say I was a little monster. All you can do is brave it out and involve Julian in the little things like bottle preparing and wash time to make him feel like a big brother. I wish you luck girl!

Rita WEiss said...

Wow! What a fun RAK I missed out on.... gorgeous colors! Hello to you. :)

dana said...

Fauve!!! I luv that RAk of goodies!!! Too bad I missed out. I need to start collecting--I never have enough time or money at the same time to do anything!!!!

:)
