Dutch Dare sketch #35

This was the sketch of Marsha we used this week.

This is the LO I made, the pictures are of the kidsparty of Camiel in Piratenland. The colors where a bit difficult to work with. I rotated the sketch because of the landscape pictures. I started the Lo during out DT meeting, but finished it at home. Monique brought some goodies she got from an other DT she is a member of. I used a few of them on this LO.


 Take a look at the LO's of the other girls: here and maybe join us.

Hugs,
Astrid

januari 18

Already 2,5 weeks over in this new year. So am I already used to write 2011 in the date, not  yet ;) I always adjust a bit slow to that :) Last sunday we had a meeting with a couple of the dutch dare girls at Danielle's house, it was a pity not everybody could join us. But we had a great time, chatting, scrapping (I'm not so great at scrapping with others, I think I can't focus enough on what I'm doing :)  )Danielle had made yummie cupcakes and we made clubsandwiches together.

Last weeks I made a couple of layouts.
Just hangin': love the pictures a made that day on the fence, I used some pics already before.

Motherhood: just some thought about being a mother and Camiel made me a mom :) The backgroung paper have a resistent pattern, I used some ink and mist on it. That red is a envelop that I cut in two
 Somewhere over the rainbow, already had the rainbow paper lying around for a while, but just couldn't get it right. Finaly using it but I'm still not really satisfied :( but I love this quote. The woodveneer stars are by SC.


I also have a dutch dare sketch LO, I will show that tomorrow when it''s on the blog.

Hugs,
Astrid

Dutch Dare OLW

Our Dutch Dare blog has a new design come take a look and we also added a few new members to the pack, welcome to Johanna, Margot, Monique and Petra! (links at the right side of my blog).
The new challenge is to scrap about your little word of 2011.
I choose FOCUS.
Focus on the main things in life, focus on the main things at work, focus on my little family, focus to make better photographs (practice my skills).

I put the journaling in the envelop underneat the picture (still have to do that). I made the flower with a pleated ribbon. I decided I wanted use some distressing and pink and glitter. Not my usual :)



Thanks for looking,

Hugs Astrid

The last DD pages

First of all happy newyear to all of you, glad that you come to visit my blog once in a while and even leave a comment. Hope to see you all this year. I also haope all your wishes foe next year come true!!

Yesterday I finished the last pages of my december daily (now I'm glad it's done ;) )
But I'm also glad I did it beause december is always a bit special for us especially with the birthdays.

Day 27: We went to the zoo: Blijdorp.
 Day 28: Tristan loves his present he got for christmas: a K3 DVD and I fixed the 'knuffel' of Camiel, he is already 6 but he still loves his knuffel but he was sad he was really almost 'dead', he wanted me to sew him so I tried ;)  (and the next day I checked the shop who I knew solded the same knuffels and yes still had them, excellent ;)  He was so happy we he opened the present :D

Day 29: Camiel and Tristan went for a sleepover at opa and oma, because the next day I had to work and daycare was closed this week. So I was home alone (Etienne had to work late) for half a afternoon and the evening and I decided to scrap. This is the result
 Day 30: A place for some handmade cards (by Marsha, Danielle and Camiel :) )

 Day 31: last day of the year, we stayed home with the for of us, boys went to bed at the normal time but Tristan woke up around 9 '(I think th efireworks) and didn't wanted to sleep in bed anymore so he stayed awake till 1.30 am!! and  we woke Camiel so we could do some (kids) fireworks. We met some neighbourgs outside. I tried to make pictures of the fireworks, always difficult.


Thanks for looking,
