Today I had some spare time to scrap!! Patrick works in England during the week and that means the dining room table is mine! I scrapped some photos of Patrick's 46th birthday which I had lying around for 2 years now. When I saw the July sketch from WijDUS I knew that was exactly what I was looking for. Here's my take on the sketch:
and the details:
Ik heb de kit van de My Scrapbook Nook tevoorschijn gehaald, daar had ik nog niks mee gedaan en die is toch weer zooooo leuk! Had ik die al eens laten zien?? Ik weet het echt niet meer.... nou ja, dan laat ik die gewoon ook nog even zien. Papier is van Lily bee (ben ik helemaal weg van, de kleuren zijn leuk en op sommige vellen staan van die schattige vogeltjes...)
I used the May kit from My Scrapbook Nook which held papers from Lily bee (GORGEOUS!! don't know if I have shown this photo before, but here it is again).
En omdat ik deze ook nog niet had laten zien, hier een foto van de juli kit van My Scrapbook Nook: BG Lemonade!! Geweldig he?
Here's a photo of the July kit of My Scrapbook Nook, filled with BG Lemonade.

Dit is mijn layout geworden "jumping and breaking free":
En omdat MME een challenge heeft lopen om iets te maken met hun "breaking free" line heb ik deze layout daar ook geupload! Ik heb zelfs het strookje van het papier gebruikt waar de naam van de lijn op staat, dat je er normaliter af moet snijden. Ik vond dat de naam van de lijn "breaking free" prima bij deze foto's paste!
Don't know why my photos are always so blurry....it can't be my camera as that's a Canon 400D so it must be me.....GRRRR!

The journaling is hidden and is about Manon's happy and funny character and how she never tires of me taking pics of her... I LOVE her!

I used: 7Gypsies papers, 7Gypsies gaffer tape, 7Gypsies rubons, 7Gypsies alphabet transparencies (B), 7Gypsies Gypsy ephemera card, 7Gypsies ATC stamp parenthesis, 7Gypsies circular flower stamp... so I think that's all as fas as 7Gypsies is concerned. Furthermore I used ribbon, prima flowers, bling, buttons and MM letter stickers. Sorry the quality of the photo isn't too good, I took the photo around 11 pm and it was getting dark...
The photo is of my mum and me in the winter of 1963......a long long time ago!

Made this layout for challenge #11 over at ScrapbookNederland. You had to lift a page from one of the scrapbook books you had in your cubboard..... I had totally forgotten that I had once bought Elsie's Recipe Box. Loved to look through it again and decided to lift her lo you see above... Hope you'll like my lo.

Title: summertime is terrace time (zomer, tijd voor een terrasje)
Journaling reads: When we're on holiday we never make lunch or dinner ourselves, but we always eat out on these little terraces; delicious!! (Als we op vakantie zijn koken we nooit zelf, maar vind je ons altijd op een terrasje: 's middags én 's avonds (en tussendoor); heerlijk!! Lanzarote, 2006)
I challenged myself to use this one sheet of Prima paper. I bought it because I found it so very beautiful in itself...without any other papers or embellishements or whatever and that made it so difficult for me to use. In the end I decided not to use any other papers, but to machine stitch around the photo(mat) and on the photo and just use a lot of Prima embellishments (bling, flowers, stem, owl), a piece of ribbon, a stamp of a clock, a Maya Road journaling card, some Thickers and adhesive pearls, some dymo tape and two staples.... And I'm quite glad how it turned out, hope you think so too!
Today was the last day before the summer holidays (it's raining cats and dogs!!) and I still had to finish the "presents" for Mats' and Timothy's teachers. As they will be back in the same class next schoolyear - with the same teacher - it's just a way of saying "thank you and have nice holiday" and not a "farewell" as was the case with Manons teachers....

Thanks Tanya for this wonderful sketch!! I wanted to scrap a page with multiple photos and this sketch came just in time!! In December 2007, when Timothy's soccer team won for the 1st time, I had these photos printed straight away! I was so proud of him, I couldn't wait to sit down and scrap about it.....but life got in the way and these photos were still sitting on my desk...until today!
If you want to see what the other designers did with the sketch, or if you want to play along, hop on over to Little Shop's blog!!

And of course Manon has a little something to give to her teachers. She made a little gift bag for Maria with a dog made of soap in it, I made a card for Sanne who also gets soap, but this time a penguin and Jenya is going to get "wheelers" (wheels which you just click under the heels of your shoes, she saw them during a roller skating "disco" at school and just loved them and since Manon has 2 pairs...) and the card has yet to be made ...
And of course Mats' and Timothy's summer holidays are about to start too, so they have to empty their drawers......this is what Timothy brought home yesterday!!! I even found some invoices for the milk they drink during lunch break, dated March 2009!!!
Boys will be boys!!!!!
