So the only thing I could do after I had been sleeping too long and had been laying too long in bed was surfing the net. So I could as wel post a blog.
I'm really longing for spring, no more snow please.
So now back to scrapping. I finally got to put some LO's into albums, still not finished. I got the kids LO's done and now the rest, still thinking about who to organise them. I use American Crafts D-ring album , really easy to work with especially when you want to add another page in between. What do you use?
I have been doing the sunday sketch challenges on the Studio Calico blog, love them, just a challenge to think outside the box and they draw a random winner (or 2) who wins a 5$ certificate for the shop, if you like to join.
Here are some LO's:
ZIEK (Sick): A few moths ago when CAmiel was also ill and was missing out on his 1st swimming lesson which he was so looking forward to. I made this background myself by drawing and cutting circles of cardstock. Just you: I found this little poem who was fitting this picture of Etienne very well. This was for a SC sketch. I love the colors on this 1. Lego fantasie: Another SC sketch challenge LO, I flipped the sketch. I love the 'white space' here something I have a 'problem' with usually.Details: This was for a CHA challenge at SC, lift a LO from you favs. I lifted a LO of Kimmi see link. I love the popped circles of the same pp and all the strips of paper. The yellow pp has flocked circles, so pretty. Picture of a window at my parents house in France (in the shed). Ok it's not good to have such a big crack in the wall, but I just love this image.
I was inspired by Lisa Truesdell's amazing LO 1 2 3, (I also love her misting and sewing the heart) But I used the strips of paper, love all these colors together, not very snowy but it fits the picture ;)Me & you & you: I really feeled like using a lot of colors on this LO, the picture is at a kite festival of me and my 2 little boys. With this 1 I just went with the flow, trew some things (also fabric) on the paper and didn't think too much, also long as it was colorful. Kind of nice for a change, iso moving papers for hours which I usually can do.
Seriously: This picture cracks me up. he was so tense standing in front of Sinterklaas talking to him ;) Also used a SC sketch for this 1 (last sunday you can still enter if you like) Made the flowers out of punched circles (Marta Stewart).
That was my last LO, I'm already busy with a new one, but first I have to feel better.
See you soon,
