Weekend is almost over, time flies as usual.
I promised to show my latest LO, a spread about some facts of Tristan at 4 months. I tried to keep it simple this time, I just love this elegant paper by Sassafras. The photo's are of Tristan bathing in a bucket, so sweet. Oh and I almost forgot, fashionista Lisa Garay put it on the catwalk at SIStv, woohoo :D

The seperate pages:

Some detailpictures:

Tristan is already 5 months old now, talking about time flying. He is starting to move a little, not yet turning on his tummy. He can reach for a toy or something and hold it with 2 hands. Also kicks with his feet to the toys.

I'm starting with medical training now, to get stronger and control the pain I have (not all the time, but when I walk a lot for instance). After the first training I had a lot of muscle aches and also pain in my lower back. But I'm hoping it will get better.

I didn't do a lot of scrapping lately. But I am busy with a canvas for my parents to hang in their home in France (they just bought a 2nd house in the north of france, they still have to do a lot of work on the house, redecoration and building). The canvas is so they don't forget us :) I will show the project when I'm finished.
This august we are going to visit them there, I have seen a lot of pictures but I'm still very curious.

Not much to say right now, till next time. If you are visting I love it when you leave a comment!!

Today we have been to Scheveningen, to the beach. It was very windy, lots of sand blowing in the face. But is was warm and we like the beach. We made lots of pictures. Camiel wanted to go in the water, normally he is not really a hero. So I let him run in his undies and he really enjoyed it. And I enjoyed watching it and of course taking pictures ;)

Camiel and me, here you can see how windy it was.

Yesterday I took some pictures of Tristan enjoying his bucket bath. He puts his feet up, so funny.

Camiel always wants to watch and Tristan is always smiling when he sees Camiel. My hearts melts everytime when I see how they interact.

And at last a LO I realised I didn't show on my blog, I was really satisfied with it.

Title is note to myself, I used the scrap-club may sketch (made by Petra, I was happy to use my square punch ;) and combined it with the OLW challenge of a few weeks ago (think). Journaling: While thinking about it enjoy life more. Also did some therapeutic hidden jounaling ;) The sewing was also kind of therapeutic ;) I don't own a sewing machine, so I did it by hand. And I can officialy say that is a LOT of work... But I like the effect.


Last week I made a new LO, I show you next time, I need to edit the pictures. It a spread something I don't do very often. I am really satisfied, so are you curious now you ;)

I off to feed the little one his last bottle of today and than finally get some rest, tomorrow 6 o'clock my alarm goes off, bzzz. Really hard work getting 2 little boys to daycare and myself to work. ;)

almost time

Yes almost time for the game Holland-Roemenie (EK soccer). Ok this is not really an important game because we already know we are in the quarter finals, but still I like to watch.

I wanted to show my latest LO with some pink paislee paper (love this brand!). I use also a nice colr of tissuepaper, maskingtape, paint, lace, rhinestones (on the tree) nailheads (papier valise), prima flower, metal thingie (also papier valise, love that site).

I love this picture of Camiel, he is 3,5 years old now, so I wanted to write down some facts about him now. What he can do, likes to do and that he has no pacifier anymore, finally! :

And some details:

It's starting now, so bye
