Memory Lane Projects May

Yep, I am still here ;-)
Have been a busy bee lately. Our house is for sale since last week and I have been cleaning most of my spare time (tips on how to keep your house clean with a five year old are more then welcome ;-))
In between work, cleaning and social occupations I did manage to squeeze out a few projects. I will show you two projects today which I made for the Memory Lane DT challenge of may.
We received some great items again last month, a huge MDF letter made by Make Me, some romantic Daisy D papers and sweet ribbons. The wallhanger is made after an idea of Corinne Delis as seen in a Dutch scrapmagazine.
It took me quit some time to figure out what to do with this big letter, but now I think I need more LOL.
I have some great ideas in my head with these letters for my new scraproom.
I could not help myself from using some gorgeous Hambly, foam Thickers and happy bloomers on the projects too. All these products are available here.
The DT girls made some amazing projects, if you'd like to see you can have a look here.
The next Dutch Dare will be online tomorrow, we have a very talented guestdesigner again ... she loves anything with wings, curious? Check the Dutch Dare blog tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting!

This weeks Dutch Dare...

was so much fun to create... We had a very talented guest designer this time Vivian Bonder. The assignment she gave us was to create a lo about something you would miss should you ever leave your home country a little extra was to use paint. Of course I would miss my friends and family most, but trust them to come and visit us often LOL, therefor I choose some food (where did I get that idea LOL) that I would really miss... I love cheese, but now a days you can get that in most countries, I even ate Gouda cheese in Nanjing... one thing I have never ever seen anywhere else though is "boerenkool" (farmer cabbage??) and that is one of my most favorite winter dishes... along with some "rookworst" van de Hema (a Dutch shop which I would miss too).

I started some projects last week but didn't get the change to finish anything, I started a new job two weeks ago and it is absorbing all of my energy at this moment... will make it up in a few weeks I am sure...

Wishing you all a great and sunny weekend!

You Made Me Complete

Feels like I haven't been very creative lately :-( Had some busy weeks and some more to come...

I did create this layout a few weeks ago for the DT challenge of April for Memory Lane. It was made with a kit of beautiful Autumn Leaves papers theme for the month was "Mother". All materials used you can find here. Curious what the other girls made with it? Take a look here.

Hope to be back soon with some more creativity to share, wishing you all a good week!

Today could not have been any better.

I finally had some time to do some ironing while Mei-Li was playing with her friends next door and also had lunch there. It feels good to have some clean clothes in the closet, but no, that is not what made my day...

It started with the mailman, he delivered some envelopes not with bills, but with some beautiful cards for my birthday, made by the girls of the Memory Lane Design Team.
Then while I was having lunch the doorbell rang,
through the window I saw the orange silhouette of the mail delivery van... my long expected order for the clip it up arrived!!!
But that was not yet it... also an order from Memory Lane with some gorgeous foam and felt thickers from American Crafts , some stunning bloomers and chipboard flower, great felt beads (and some more ;-))))) arrived!!
Late in the afternoon I had a job interview with a company I'd already been to last week... guess what... I HAVE A JOB!!! And not just a job, a job I really wanted!
I had a GREAT day, of now to clean my scrap area and to hang my stuff on the clip it up LOL!
