Something old, something new...

Always check the sale section of your scrapbook store... I do... Whenever placing an order for some new goodies I always check the sales section too. Very often you can buy some papers or embellishments for almost half the price... , they might not be new, but can for sure be used for a fun project! This little hart shaped (and more shapes) booklet is from Memory Lane, I used some old BG papers from their sales section to "dress" it and finally used up some of my own old stash too LOL (which was about time). It was fun using something old and something new.
Thanks for visiting!

MLS Desingteam assignment Februari...

This is the lo I made for the assignment of the Memory Lane desingteam for February. The assignment was to scrap a secret love, to use felt, buttons and Autumn Leaves paper. I misunderstood the secret love part and scrapped a picture of an old love instead ;-)) I found this picture in the attic and needed to do something with it, as you might understand from the song lyrics Vincent is no longer among us. The picture was taken by Vincents father who is a professional photographer. Don't worry, it wasn't painful scrapping this photo, I am just glad I did.
The other girls made great lo's for this challenge... want to see them?? They'll be here soon!
OK, a lighter subject... last Sunday I went to the desingteam lunch... had a great, little bit chaotic, day and finally got to meet Danielle, Daphne, Monique, Angelique, Mandy, Martine and Nicole. Nice to meet you girls!! Hope to meet Charlotte and Francine next time. Yes, NEXT time, Danielle just asked me to stay, thanks girl!!!
Thank you for visiting!

Which witch stole my sandwich...

while taking these pictures of dd this morning I remembered this little sentence from English class...
Today Mei-Li and her classmates will celebrate carnival at school. Our little princess decided she wanted to be a witch this year ;-)) Have a nice day!

about snow and style ;-))

Not much happened these last few day, Mei-Li is feeling a bit better although she still has a nasty cough especially at night :-(( Last Thursday we had snow for the first time this year, I am not much of a fan (do like to see it, but its way too cold and wet for me) but enjoy my daughters enthusiasm when she sees this white stuff falling from the sky. Despite the bad cold we put some warm clothes on and went outside to have some fun. Now ain't this the prettiest snowman you've ever seen???

If all goes well we'll be moving somewhere at the end of 2008 to a new house (yeh, I know that is far far away). I look forward decorating this new place (I'll be having my own scrappingroom :-)), I have learned a lot from the house we have now, and think I know better what I want and absolutely would never do again. For all the ''great'' ideas that come up from time to time I created this little book. Plan is to make a kind of style plan in this little album. Had fun creating it. The cover is made from a place mat bought at the Xenos, saw this great idea on Mandy's log a little while ago. The little white glittery letters are my new favorite product I guess, I have been using them on the last four projects I've made. I forgot whom they are from (always cut the top of the bag off) but they can be bought here. That is it for now, have a great weekend!

Flu, Coffee and Dutch Dares...

Not in a hurry to bring Mei-Li to school this morning... she has not been feeling well since a couple of days and now I know what was wrong... think she has a flu or at least a huge cold :-(( Marcel went to Berlin again for work and will be back tomorrow... I've put the heating up high made myself a nice cup of coffee and checked the Dutch Dares Blog .
Girls you made some awesome layouts again!! I am sure this dare will be a big success; who doesn't want to scrap a good looking guy! Well got to go, I'll leave you with a layout of my own hunk.
Thanks for visiting!

A good day after all...

I am not much of a winner, but never say never...curious... check Monique's blog. Thank you Monique!

Hiep Hiep Hoera...

this does not describe how I've been feeling these last few days ;-)) still have some trouble not smoking, it is not really the smoking I miss, but somehow I stay restless, on the other hand I am as lazy as can be, so have this sort of conflict with myself, are you still with me LOL?
Husband was out yesterday evening, Mei-Li was in bed early so time for me to scrap... after thinking for almost an hour I found this very original and striking title for my lo... needless to say inspiration was hard to find. Then I remembered seeing a sketch on Birgit's blog and thought I'd give it a try, not disappointed with the result at all. Perhaps I should use a sketch more often. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
