Deck of me update

I was a little behind with the Deck of Me challenge by Emily Falconbridge, but last saturday I had a great scrapday at Boukje, so I finished almost all weeks...

I also made a layout with this awesome picture of a green snake, which I made at the Zoo in Emmen... Unfortunately the colors of the picture are not as bright as in real life...

Something to show...

... did some scrapping this week. Last weekend I bought a fantastic felt album (8.5" x 11") at MemoryLane Scrapbooking. I used MME Magnolia paper, AC thickers and the new Uni Posca Pens... men, those pens are tha bomb! This is the first layout I made in this size:

I also made a card for a colleague who gave birth to a baby girl named Mare:

We've had a tough week... wednesday we heard that an ex-student of our school was found dead in her bed... murdered... I can't believe it! She was only 19 years old... not fare! She was in my class, 5 years ago. Such a sweet girl! After such devastating news, I realised (again) that I have to live NOW... Carpe Diem!

Made some cards yesterday evening. My niece delivered a baby boy on friday the 13th: Derk. I made a card for her and her husband and one for my aunt and uncle, who became grandparents.

I also made a card for Miranda, who also delivered a baby boy: Jop.

Oh my... what a beautiful weekend it was! I really had a summer feeling! We bought some lovely shoes (Teva) for Julian, together with some short pants and T-shirts...

Today, after the BBQ, Julian got his bath in the garden. And he loved it!
I did a lot of scrapping this week, but unfortunately, I can't show you anything yet... well, ok, I can show you two sneaks. This one is for the upcoming Dutch Dare (wednesday!):

And this one is for the april project of MemoryLane Scrapbooking:

Finding ME

I'm joining Corinne Delis' Finding You workshop. Every week I will make a spread with a layout on the left side and journaling on the right side. I will only share my layout(s), because the journaling is too personal for me to share on the www...

Dutch Dare #11

Be sure you'll check out the Dutch Dare blog! Corinne Delis is our Guest Designer this week and she came up with a great challenge. Here's my layout for this week (I used Stella Ruby paper and some great new thickers):

Talking about Corinne Delis... I started with the Finding You workshop this week and I can tell you: it has brought me a lot of good things already! I'm so happy I joined this workshop. Corinne is very talented in many ways. So thank you Corinne... you know why!

Lots to share!

... I won a contest at the Royal Lemon Forum! We had to make a layout/mini-album about an animal... so I made this cute mini album about our visit at the Zoo (1st January 2007). I posted a photo of the cover a while ago, but now I can show you the whole thing:

The text is printed on a transparancy:

Ok, that are a lot of pics... I know. But hey, finally I can show you something!

Today is April 1st, that means that I began with an important journey: Finding ME! I will join Corinne Delis with the Finding You workshop. Today we've got our first assignment. I'm very sorry, but I can't share anything about this workshop, because it is very personal. The only thing I can show you, is the cover of my album...

I used a Xenos album and covered it with Basic Grey paper (phoebe). The big blue flower and the pink thickers are available now at Memory Lane Scrapbooking!

And last, but not least... a little sneak peak for the Dutch Dare of upcoming wednesday!
