And last but not least,my favorite new layout.Unfortunately i can't show it jet,but i just had to show some sneak peeks!It felt so good playing with paint and distressing again,it has been a while... :)

Sigh...This layout makes me think of Paris...J'adore Paris...

Back to scrapping,have a nice weekend!!

New layout's!

My first layout called Priceless,is about my two boy's.I took this picture on our vacation in Belgium last summer.They were laughing and when i told them to look my way,this was what i got.Julian looks like he want's to start crying and Maxim looks like...It wasn't me!Both are clowns,that's for sure!This pictures makes me laugh,everytime i see it.

Random things

I have several things that i am going to show today,just fun stuff happening at the moment.Like my gorgeous boy who looks like...well a scarecrow obviously haha He will be six in May and he is already missing lot's of teeth.No pretty school pictures this year!I think it's kinda funny looking though...Luckily it's just a fase LOL My random collection of books!Like the bright colors mixed with the vintage pale colors.I think i have the most random collection of books a person can have.Interior,cupcakes,fairies,art,diet,chick flicks and more.Love it! A gift i bought for myself some time ago.People who know me,know i just adore fairies.I also like pin-ups and i have a thing for make-up...(I know,i know,i like lot's of things!!)This make up set from Too Faced has all of these favorite things in one,and it was definately a Must Have!My new layout called Tradition.Ihave been creating some other layout's but i can't show them jet.I made this layout using a sketch on the Dutch Dares blog.I've been wanting to play along and now i finally did!
I am also looking for a new Scrapbooking tote.I have a big roller tote in pale pink,but it became dirty.Now i spotted this one from AMM,and i Love it.I think this is going to be the one,if my LSS can find it.I am hoping they can find a brown/pink one because i have a brown/pink tool caddy from AMM.I like them to match!I also like the shoulder bag,so i hope they can find that one too.I am still open for suggestions on other scrapbooking roller bags or totes,so any ideas are more then welcome!!! :)I found some cool presents for my pregnant friend,i will have to make some pictures.Wish i could keep it myself haha I was sorting out my baby stuff last week and it makes me wan't to have ten more babies.Sigh...Probably not a good idea,back to reality!!! :)

Who knew it was SO EASY??

(I need to stop looking suprised on pictures,one day that wrinkle is going to stay FOREVER!)While browsing mags and watching celebs on tv,i spotted a braid that looked so good!!But...It looked really complicated and i was like yeah...well...maybe one day when i get my hair done.I found out it's called a fishtail braid,and after seeying some youtube clips i gave it a try.It looked doable in the clips...

(What,i did it??OWMY i can do it!!!)

It's not just doable,it's SO easy!You only use 2 strands and the result is sooo nice.Go and try it!!We Dutchies are used to braiding our hair in the french style,but i must say that this is definately a new favorite for me!
Okay moving on...While i was making pictures,i wanted to take pictures of some of my favorite Antique finds.Just a few,i will make some more soon.I have lot's since i am such a HUGE thrift lover.

My print that i bought 2 years ago.It's my favorite item by far!There is kind of a funny story behind it.I was thrifting with my mom and her husband.I saw the print,and thought WOW.It had no frame jet,but it looked way expensive so i kept walking slowly.Still thinking ow my WOW.Then Jack came up to me,and asked me did you see that one?(Uhuh,my people know what i like...LOL)Said yeah,so pretty...So then my mom came to us,and asked what we were talking about.So we explained to her and she said,well show me.So we went back and she asked how much it was.The guy said to her,5 euro's.I wanted to SCREAM!!!!Eventhough it was such a pain carrying it around all day(not to meantion removing the nails in the park),it couldn't have made my day any better.

Lesson learned,never be scared to ask!!!
My pretty pretty pretty porcelain we bought last year.I didn't photograph the cup and saucers,but i have twelve!I wanted to buy the set for my mom,but she wanted to buy it for me because i loved it so much.It was expensive so we weren't going to buy it because of the broken sugar bowl.But it was just too pretty to leave it there.It looks like it could have been made for Marie Antoinette herself!
This was the first thing i bought on a market in France last year.So cute and definately worth 6 euro's.It's already been used for a High tea :) This is something my mother gave me for my bday.It can be used as a parfume spray,isn't it adorable?Will look so cute on my dresser.Some plates i bought last year.Love the yellow!When i see these i never wan't to use plastic plates again.But then again...When you live with 2 boy's,which are 5 and 3,that might not be such a good idea.They're not completely chip free,but it's very minor and it gives a great touch if you ask me.Worth the 1 euro a plate!Some more plates,pink with pastel flowers.Sigh...This is a very old piece of fabric.I think it used to be a curtain...It's not new and has a few ripps and stains,but i think i can make some fun pillows out of these.I couldn't just leave it for that 1 euro.
That's it for now,i will update soon!xoxo

So i spotted this garment bag a while ago when H&M launched their LANVIN collection.Ofcourse i'm not going to spend so much money on a dress,so no garment bag for me.(You only recieved them with clothes.)But when i spotted this new Lanvin garment bag online for only 3 euro's,i just HAD TO buy it.It's so cute,don't you think?It looks very Parisian,and i LOVE that!!
Give me some Ooh la la,poodles and Black/Pink combo and i need it... :) Wish i was brave enough to wear it like a dress,like the model...

I have a little TOOT,that i will share with you soon...

So i keep reading about this One Little Word everybody is choosing for the new year.
Great idea!I am not a new years resolution person,but i do have a specific goal this year.I hope to volunteer this year,making people a bit happier and less lonely.I was shocked to hear how many people are really lonely.Ofcourse i also have my "lonely" moments,but then i think of the people who really have nobody to turn to.That's my goal for this year!I hope i make the best of it...What's your goal??
I am addicted to this movie...I know it's not a new movie,but it took me forever to see it.I LOVED it when i saw it end last year,and i was very happy that i got it from Santa last Christmas.Now i watch it several times a week,which is pretty pathetic.I am totally aware...And yes i have a hundred other things to do!Such a pretty Soundtrack,sigh...

Watched this movie tonight,and it's so cute!If you havn't seen it,go check it out.I love these kind of romantic movies.
I am pretty sure this movie is the new favorite of my boy's.Such a fantastic Disney movie,i LOVE it too!Go go go and see it for yourself!
