Saturday

The story about the crying tantrum...layout based on the November sketch challenge at Blue Fern Studios



So these two [nephew age 4 and niece age 2] threw a crying tantrum last Saturday. Boy was it ugly! They refused to share a chair to look at nephew #2's drawing even though they couldn't see the drawing because they were just too short! *LOL*


What did I do? I removed the chair of contention of course! And let them cry it out! It's interesting how quickly kids stop crying once nobody wins...*winks* [The strategy is different in a public place though...bribery of some sort must be used to reduce the # of pity stares from strangers...*LOL*]


This layout of course, features them the previous week when they got along fabulously! :)


This layout was based on the November sketch challenge at Blue Fern Studios.



P/s: Happy weekend friends! Don't forget to play along with my guest Sandie's challenge and LESSology Challenge #30: Kitchen Raid. And if you love what I've been creating with Blue Fern Studios chipboard, consider applying for the Blue Fern Studios Design Team!

Fabulous LO - love the sprays, colours and embellishments! Tantrums - hmmm, the good old days. I remember sitting one of my daughters on a wall in the mall and then sitting directly opposite on a middle wall and just letting her get on with it. When she realised nobody really cared she cam over gave me a hug and said lets go shopping:-)
