Busy, busy, busy!

Boy, it's really a very very busy time here. We're almost at the end of the schoolyear and that means a lot of things to finish and ofcourse a LOT of meetings... :S Didn't do a lot of scrapping the last couple of weeks. But I will make it up when I'm free (7 weeks of vacation... did you hear me complaining? hehehe).

Today we had a special day at Julian's daycare. It was all about the Circus today. So I tried to give my little boy a clownsface. Very difficult to keep him from rubbing his nose/mouth/cheeks LOL. But he looked soooo cute! Here are a few shots of my little Bumba:

And here's a little sneak, can't show the whole project yet. But as soon as I can show it to you, I will post it here on my blog!

Have a very nice weekend!

Coaster album & Scrap! magazine

I made a coaster album about a visit to my sister with the latest Crate line: Samantha. I just love those beautiful papers ánd... it's the first time I used purple in my work. Usually I don't like purple, but with these papers, I couldn't resist using purple ink! I like the results, so maybe I will use this color more often... :)

As promised, here are the projects I made for Scrap! Magazine. The layouts are made with Making Memories Sydney. I love the look of this line... it really fits by those old family pictures. The mini-album is made with transparancy's and chipboard letters (the outlining) by Making Memories. So there are two sorts of pages: transparant and chipboard. I totally love the outcoming of this album! Can't wait to have it in my hands again!

Don't forget to check out this weeks Dutch Dare! The girls made wonderful projects again ánd we have a very special guest designer: Céline Navarro! Isn't that awesome?

Dreamer and some sneaks

Finally did some scrapping last week. I finished my MLS June challenge, but I can't show you that one until the end of June...
But I scrapped something for myself too, sometimes it feels like I can't do anything for myself, but only for an assignment... so I really enjoyed making this layout. I love the picture of Julian. He looks a lot like my dad when he has a 'thinking' face like that! I made the lo with the new Crate Paper Samantha line and with an old sheet of Crate (the background).

And finally, I will leave you with some sneak peaks of my layouts in the new issue of Scrap! magazine... It will probably be in store today, so go check it out. I also made an incredible mini-album, but I won't show some sneaks of that, but it will reveal too much. I will publish my assignments as soon as Scrap! is available in all stores! Have a good weekend!

A lot

to share this time! It's been a few very busy weeks at work, so I didn't scrap a lot. But I made a layout for the new Dutch Dare, hosted by Monique Verbeek! Sorry for the bad picture, I can't get it straight...

For the May Challenge of Memory Lane, I made this MDF letter for the door of Julian's room... I used some fab Daisy D's papers, a blue dabber and chipboard letters. See here to see what the other girls came up with.

Yesterday, I made a card for friends who bought their first house together. I made the foam shapes (my own thickers!) with the Studio Alphabet and my Quickutz squeeze. I am very happy with the result!

This layout is made a few weeks ago and is based on a sketch from Ali Edwards' patterned paper book:

And finally I will leave you with a picture of my sweet little boy Julian! Last week, he and his daddy went for a walk. And when they came home, they brought me some beautiful flowers. Isn't he adorable!
