SDC 282 - only blue


Saying HELLO by using lovely Mary and Heart Tie.

The theme this week at Stampotique Designers Challenge is "only blue", so I used different blue NeocolorII`s , my OHTP fude ball and Versafine deep lagoon.

SDC281 - background love


Last week Stampotique Designers Challenge asked for backgrounds and here is my take on the theme.

 My favorite background stamp right now is the "French journal page" by France Papillon. I just love the clean lines.
I also added some washi tape to underline poor  Twinkie `s struggle as Daniels  tree hopper goes crazy in the back..

Not a lot of colors this time , just the way I like it right now...

scrapping time



Long time, no time for fun in my "scrap office". But today - here I am - listening to Amy Winehouse, Christina Perry and Moulin Rouge...  So singing along and scrapping at the same time , I had a lovely Sunday afternoon inside.


Hugs!

A Journal page


A life with ups and downs. Borderline Syndrom makes the peaks higher and the valleys lower. And we all just wish her the best, without understanding how that little mind of her works...

" ...and sometimes I am that person clapping my hands and singing, and sometimes that person on my knees..."

Background a la Trish Latimer - a LOT of colors, stamps and rub-ons. The little angel is from "l`encre et l`image".

This journal page is my entry to the challenge at Simon says stamp where the theme this week is "anything goes".

Happy Holidays!


A couple of weeks ago Mosaikscrappers had a workshop where we were taught how to make lovely backgrounds using stencils and distress inks.



This is one of the cards I made, decorated with Tim Holtz` lovely snowman.

I wish that next year, I will be able to spend more time in my "home office", getting my fingers inky, feeling the happiness of creativity and getting my blog back to life again.
I will make a "to do"-list for all the things I did n`t find time to do in 2016 and REALLY try to MAKE TIME for these "things" in 2017.

We celebrated Christmas eve with parts of the family , all of us a bit nervous because it would be the first time without Oliver. But all in all I think we did a good job. It was a nice evening and we all felt relaxed together..

I wish you all happy holidays! Don`t forget to enjoy the time you have together with people you love!

a weekend travel journal


Last weekend my husband took me to the belgium coast - just like that - for no reason.
We had a lovely time, spending hours on the beach in the frosty sun.
Our favorite restaurant in Blankenberge is called STARCKX and of course our meal there was excellent as always.
When we go there, we go by train. It is a nice way to travel through Belgium. - no stress and lots of time to talk, read or be crafty.
On the way back I put this little journal together while my husband read his book. I even finished it !

I used many of my "old" stamps ( still favorites ) and in the end I was pleased with the outcome.

Wish you all a nice end of October with a lot of sun, orange leaves and a hot pumpkin soup!
