Project 12 *may*

Finally I finished my may LO, I dont know why but it wasn't easy this time :)
But I tried some new techniques, I handsewed the flowers (I loved them in the sketch, so I wanted to create them myself). I even did the french knot for the first time, fun!!

This is the sketch:

Made this LO more then a week ago but still haven't show it here. It is a picture of a carousel in Drievliet Etienne and Camiel are on it (but you don't see that). It went really high so I'm glad I wasn't on it...
I loved the colors of the carousel :)   I used a sew easy head to make the pennants, not easy to use but I made it work ;).

Last week Steven, my best friend Hellen's son turned 7. She asked me to make a new canvas for his room. I mad 1 years ago with a picture of him when he was 2, so time for a new one. The theme was tools, because he love them.
This way for trouble ;)  I used lots of sprayink, love this little tools fro Crate paper.


I'm suffering from heavy backpains :(   No fun, I don't know how to sleep at night everything hurts, no matter how I lay. I got diclofenac from my doctor yesterday and I got an xray made, hope it gets better soon. It has something to do with my SI joint.

Have a good weekend,

hugs, Astrid

Made this LO about how proud I am of the changes Camiel have gone trough this last schoolyear, according to his teacher. Regarding his behavior, expressing himself and his concentration, it is still his weakest piont. But he totally ready for group 3 now. Time to start learning how to read and write and his looking forward to it. He already tries to read words by himself. Love to exprience this proces.

I love the paper circles that in were included in the SC Lawn Party kit, this time I used it for journaling spot and that chickenwire paper (exclusive SC) has such a yummie color.  I punched the holes for the sewing  circles wit the sew easy (fun tool).
Picture was taking during our last holidady in France.

Still a few weeks left and then out holiday starts, so looking forward to it!! We are going to Mallorca, first time flying wit the 2 boys. The last time we went by plane Tristan wasn't born yet, but already in the tummie ;)
I hope the wil love it, I already showed some pictures on the internet to Tristan of the pirateship slides in the swimming pool and his telling everybody all about it now. :)

Have a good weekend. I hope to start scrapping my may Project 12 pictures soon, time flies we are already half way june.

dutch dare fotochallenge

The dutch dare this week is a photochallenge.

I combined it with the one little word challenge of Scrapotheek:  You.
I decided to use the pictures of last mothersday (not the best, I was just awake and the lightconditions weren't optimal). I just bought a heartpunched and I made good use of it :)
I wrote and handcutted the title and use 3D tape to attach it. (inspired by Revlie).

Take a look what the other girls and our guestdesigners (yes we had 2) made. Join us and have a change to win a super RAK.

I made another LO with pictures of easter egghunting in France.
Pasen in Frankrijk (Eastern in France)

ETA: I got a few comments on my blogheader lately (OK you were right, no snow anymore :) )so I finally  changed it. Are you proud of me?  :)
