Beautiful perfect day

Watching little kids growing up is so much fun. DS is intrigued by different textures. My DH plays the hat game with him: they stand in front of the mirror and try on all kinds of different hats: sun hats, bike hats, straw hats, wool hats.... The expression on his little face is just adorable. One day, he just could not get enough of it, so we took many hats and put them on the living room floor. He was in heaven. He played for about 20 minutes, a bit later even DD joined in. 

I based this layout on the inspiring sketch from ARTFUL DELIGHT.

I really liked the design of it! 
Just have a look at the Prima Romance Novel collection. Simply to die for! I love it that Krissy from Swirlydoos always has brand new papers and amazing embellishments in her kits.

I used the washi tape to decorate the envelope. 

I hid the journaling in the little envelope 

Otherwise, my life is not boring! DD has also started taking swimming lessons. Taking her to school, to guitar lesson, to swimming lesson, helping her with her English homework, guitar practicing and teaching her German every night sure keeps me busy. I have no clue how this will work when I have to go back work in January....... 

And our little one? Well, he is a dangerous one. Just 8 months old and he thinks he can walk. He had his first fall and he can reach everything - the knobs on the stove, DD's books (they are now moved up 2 more shelves) and even the harpsichords...... Despite all the baby proofing we have done, I am constantly chasing him. 

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
