Verena Karolyi's Happy Carneval

My latest CT kit was Verena Karolyi's Happy Carneval available here. It was a great kit to work with and I've got a few more layouts in mind that it might come in handy. The clowns are so cute and would be great for invitations and cards. The thing is there's heaps of papers in the kit in colours that are very versatile so I think I'll be getting a fair bit of use out of it. This is the preview and keep scrolling to see the layouts I made with this kit.

AC Baths:
Geoff and I took Hayley and Maddy to the AC Baths at Taupo. There was a huge pool with both indoor and outdoor areas all thermally heated. Hayley had a try on the Inflatable Obstacle Course but wasn’t tall enough to get over the second obstacle. Both girls had a great time on the tarzan rope but the waterslides were a bit daunting.

Bring on the Clowns:
Imagine my surprise when I came out into the family room to find Sara and Ethan had got into my lipstick and decided to do a makeover. My good lipstick didn’t survive the experience.

Royal Melbourne Show:
Geoff was away when the show was on and I wasn’t keen on taking the kids by myself, but luckily Janine’s work has Show Day as a holiday and she was happy to come with us. By the time we got there and had a look at the animals it was time for an early lunch. The kids picked fish and chips and saw a little bit of the Dorothy the Dinosaur show. After lunch we went to the arena for the lunchtime entertainment which was unfortunately running 30mins late. Everyone had picked which showbag they wanted so I went by myself to the showbag hall and got the showbags and brought them back. Checking out their goodies filled in some time and they got stuck into the Cadbury bag. The entertainment was fabulous. First was an aerial act that worked from the end of a huge crane with no safety net. Next were motorcross stunt riders doing somersaults and twists in the air between two ramps, Hayley was very impressed. Last was the monster truck, revving around the arena and jumping onto a row of cars. Ethan was enthralled and talked about them for months after. When the trucks were finished we headed off for 2 rides and a game for each child. Sara and Hayley chose the giant slide, while Ethan had a ride in the cars. They all had a go together on the cup and saucer ride. Ethan was all tuckered out and fell asleep in the pram while Hayley searched for her Scavenger Hunt items. A trip to the craft pavillion and a bag of fairy floss and the day was almost over. Everyone including the adults had a great time and we all got home safe and sound.
