Vacation was fun,but sjeeeeeeez my boy's were so HYPER!!Even when i went outside with them,playing on the playground for hours...But what do you expect when you have 2 pirates?
Besides "just chillin" this vacation,i totally took over my mom's baking hype.Ofcourse cupcakes are my fave,just because they are so yummy!Here are the chocolate cocos ones that were delicious.Atleast my brother and neighbours thought so.I have to say that scones are high on the fave list too.Ofcourse you need to serve it with some Clotted Cream and Jelly.Although Julian thinks i could just skip the Clotted Cream and just serve it with Jelly. ;)
On request for my neighbour i also made a Chocolate Strawberry cake.It was my firs cake and ofcourse i didn't use a recipe or anything.Why?Well simply because i am really stubborn.Haha Next time i have to add some cream to the chocolate so it won't break when you cut the cake.Lesson learned...But looking at it in the end,i must say that i think it looks pretty cool for a first cake.Especially for someone who couldn't bake ANYTHING!
For the pathetic Cooks like me,i have to recommend recipes from this lovely lady.Nigella Lawson makes cooking fun and sexy!Her cooking program is so much fun to watch and her recipes are not complicated at all.Especially if you like quick cooking,she is the one for you!My mom found this cool Sushi cake on google the other day.At first i thought the idea was kinda growse...But when you get rid of the idea from the combination of real cake and Sushi together,i must admit that this idea is way cool.
My brother came to visit me for a few day's which was really fun!We played games,did water fights with the kids,ate a lot!! and more crazy stuff.I also squeezed in this layout.When school starts a finally have some more time to scrapbook more,yay!For this layout is used SausanDesigns paper and hybrid stuff.Her stuff is awesome,if you havn't seen it be sure to check it out!
This project by Jeongmee Yoon is awesome if you ask me.She did one for boy's and one for girls.

There is a person that knows exactly how to make a woman feel good about herself.Just as she is!!!A hero in my eyes...Ofcourse i am talking about Gok Wan from How To Look Good Naked.What a fantastic show!My mom totally got me hooked.He also got a "new" show called Gok's Fashion Fix.
Ofcourse i couldn't help myself making some more cupcakes...I tend to make flower cupcakes,but they didn't turn out that nice.Too bad,better luck next time!My mom also came by to drop off Mari's b-day cake.WOW WOW WOW,that's all i can say!The cake looks absolutely fantastic.Will show it a.s.a.p. She also brought A LOT of cupcakes and strawberry's covered in white chocolate.Need to go on a diet soon...
Wanted to show you this picture.The other day i had this HUGE wasp in my home.It doesn't look so big on the picture,but believe me.It was huge and way scary!I needed to catch it and throw it out of the window.Not the coolest thing to do,but i succeeded ha!We are spending most of our time on the playground,especially when the weather is nice.If the weather is bad we are inside drawing,playing with clay and watching movies.The routine is out and my kids are often freaking me out by running in the house.Love my kids,but sjeez i miss school haha That's about it...I'll be back soon!Happy scrapping :)

It felt good to scrapbook again.I wasn't really inspired lately,and all of a sudden i felt like scrapbooking again.I was very happy about that!Hope to create some more today or tomorrow.
I also made some more cupcakes.My favorite are still the pink ones with strawberry filling and white chocolate topping,but you have to variate sometimes right?So i made banana cupcakes with a Milk chocolate topping and banana on top.And i have to say they were really nice,and refreshing.My best friend Marianne arrived in Holland today,all the way from Dubai :) Good to have you back girly!She is going to be my cupcake taster,and i am going to stuff her this whole vacation!
By the way,can i introduce you to Beth Ditto!!This girl is crazy but oh so fabulous.She is a proud big woman,and let's thank her for that.Not that i think we should all look like beth,but i think she is a perfect rollmodel to show people you just have to embrace yourself as who you are!And it's time for a change,no more skinny ass models! :)Ow and for the people who live in Europe.I will be demonstrating at HobbyFarm the 13th of September.Hope to see some of you there!
I'll be back soon,Happy Scrapping!
