2 weeks ago at the Valentine's weekend we (Etienne and me) went to Brugge. It was a present from me to him. We really enjoyed it is such a nice city (in Belgium), with a historical centre, beautiful buildings. I booked as an hotel in the middle of the centre, ideal. It was really relaxing, no kids (they stayed at my parents). That can be a nice change for a time, we did some siteseeing, shopping, eating out, relaxing. The city is really photogenic, this are some results.

at night:

I also used a picture of the 2 of us for the previous OLW challenge (FUN). Mostly used the Sudio Calico kit, also some walnut veneer (also SC) which I covered the chipboard tree with.

Now I want to do the new challenge, the word is SEE. Can't come up with something yet. Don't really did much scrapping lately, not much time and when I have in the evening I'm just too tired...

Camiel a week vacation from school, today he and me went that see a movie: Bolt. It was his first time going to the movies, he loved it. And Bolt was fun for me too.

Tristan was a bit ill the last week, no fun vomitting and so on. He can walking around the table really good now. He is exploring everything in the house :) Lots of time I have to think back to when Camiel was this ago, so many simular things like grapping the remote controls every time, taking everything from the drawers or cupboards, everytime you open the dishwasher he need to crawl to it to pick something from it. :) This is a fun age, he is learning so many new things.

Here is a recent picture of the 2 together, always when I'm making pictures, Camiel want o hold Tristan, which he not always preferes

Tomorrow we are visiting friends: Katja and Ramon and their 3 kids Kimani, Minou and Melvi, they live in Velserbroek , really looking forward to that.
Have a good weekend!

1 year old!!

Already 1 year (+ 1 week) ago this sweetheart came into our life. I looks like a second child moves the time even quicker...
Tristan just born 30 jan. '08:
Eating his birthday cake 1 year later 31 jan.'09:

This was the inivitation for the party:

We took a picture every month with a stuffed pinguin, to follow his growth, here you can see a collage:

We also did this with Camiel and I'm glad we did it again, although sometimes we were a few days (or a week...) too late.

Last night I finished a LO for the last OLW challenge,

Again this challenge inspired me to use pictures of myself (may '07) Used clear extras of Heidi Swapp and some fun goodies of Papier Valise: little flowers, ticket, clock face, rhinestones. Stamp: Studio Calico, cipboard swirl: Fancy Pants.

Here you se the dimension of the flowers, love them!

Have a nice weekend,

Hugs Astrid
