Friday

The importance of flexibility...and chocolate


Flexibility

It's been trying these days to get a decent shot of my littlest nephew J and niece S.


They would make funny faces OR cover up their faces with a toy...


Here they are...at 10.21am. Totally determined not to let Aunt Y get a shot of them....


Here they are at 10.22am...one minute later...[when Aunt Y promised them chocolate for posing]


Yep. The importance of flexibility is key when it comes to chocolate. *LOL*
Inspired by the challenge at Once Upon a Sketch.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! If you have time, come play along with my guest Shahrul's stitching challenge, LESSology Challenge #25: For the love of fabric, Purple Pumpkin's May sketch and the mood board challenge at Zeus and Zoe! Working on a super secret project....*winks*

You are funny and the layout looks great.Bright and happy.I have never seen such instant results of bribing.The children in my family would have done all kinds of drama to get the chocolate first and then promptly vanished.lol.

Isn't it frustrating when they don't want to just smile and look cute for the camera for 2 seconds?! The bribe was worth it - very cute pic and layout.

Oh goodness! I remember those days...fondly? Maybe not quite so fondly. I have meant to tell you for a while I like how you show us what you use in a little graphic. That way you can tell us the story without getting the products involved, which is pretty awesome!
