dutch dare sketch #37

It has been a while, I have been busy with a lot things, not much scrapping and blogging.
Two weeks ago we had a new sketch challenge at Dutch Dares and I haven't even show it here, shame ;)

Still 1 of my fave pictures of the 2 boys when Tristan was just born :)

I want to show 2 LO's more I made a while ago, but blogger don't want me to add more pictures :(
So that have to wait till later.

Project 12 februari

Yes I decided to stay on top of it ;) and already finished my february spread.

This was the provided sketch by Becky Fleck:

I decided to use kraft cardstock as a background for all the LO's and I also have this large tags I bought at Papier Valise ( I love the store for little trinkets I like to add to my LO's), I want to use the tags for the journaling.
I rediscovered heat embossing, I used white this time. I love it because you can't get such a effect with white ink (at least not me).

Hugs, Astrid

Dutch Dare Wat schaft de pot?

New Dutch dare: Wat schaft de pot (something like what's for dinner?).
In oktober 2008 I joined a project by Ali Edwards 1 week in your life. I made a lots of picture during one week. I never completed the project (still a shame), but I have collected all the foodpictures I made and used it for this dare. I printed them on small format, but what to do then? The forum of Scrapotheek came to the rescue, Monique posted a workshop (originally for the kwartaalchallenge which I don't follow this quarter) of a special minialbum. So I started to work on that which was not easy for me because I screwed up a few time, but with a bit of tape I could repare it.

The outside:
 The inside with tags in it:

This month Marsha donated a fabulous RAK which you can win if you join this dare or the sketch of this month. So come on and join us it's really worth it!!

I also made 2 card last week (I only do that for special occasions ;)

For Petra who celebrated her birthday last week.
 And the inside

And sunday my sister in law Edith celebrated her 50th birthday. After I took the picture I addes a little punched butterfly to the lace...

Last weekend we were in Lunteren together with my 2 sisters in law and there family, we had a blast despite the bad weather. The kids so enjoined spending time with them.

Time to make the february LO for project 12, time flies... I already decided which pictures to use (the most difficult part I think) and printed them. Now the cutting and glueing part starts

Have a nice day.
