Mum & Dad & Alaina

I couldn't help myself, we took so much fun pictures yesterday at the puppies. So I had to make another LO. This time not only Alaina but also mum and dad. Aren't they cute? I used the sketch from Design Memory Lane:

What a perfect weekend! We went to see a puppy this morning. My boyfriend and I want to buy a dog. So we are reading about it for a time now. Decided what kind of dog we want, don't know if it is the same in English, but we want a Border Collie. So we found a a Border Collie whith puppy's. So we went to see them, and this is the pup we think of buying, Alaine is her name. Isn't she cute???? I used a sketch from Stuck! to make this LO. Ow and again I used the kit from ScrapClub.

And I had the time to make some cards. For this one I used the challenge from Dutch Card Challenge. Create a card with a mosaic on it:
For the second one I used the challenge from A Spoon Full of Suger: "create a card for a New Baby, Mum-to-be, New Mum or Pre-schooler."
And for this one I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers:
And for the last one I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday:

Valentine's Day

Almost Valentine's day, sometimes I send cards but not every year. But this week I received the kit from ScrapClub. It was so full of love I had to make Valentine Cards! For the first one I used the sketch from 2Sketches4You.

For the second one I used the challenge from Caardsvarks, Polkadots! I really love the result of both cards and I love the Kit more!

Wow, I finally did my share of scrapbooking! I love it. And in the meanwhile I cooked dinner (friends are coming over), did some things in the house. What a perfect day! Well here is my work. I loved the challenge from dreamgirls, use your stash, use the phrase "I'm not..." and paper tearing. It was perfect for the photo I made last week. I am so tired of my weight, so this time I am going to lose weight and not give up!

Made two cards as well, the first one is agian from "the Songbird" collection and I used the sketch from Caardvarks. The second one is a sketch from Friday Sketchers.


This weekend we painted our bathroom. We made everything which was yellow, white. So it is beautiful now! I used a sketch from Pencillines to create this one. And again "The Songbird" collection by SisTV.

New Years Eve

I made this LO yesterday. I took my inspiration from sketch #70 from Stuck!. I used "The Songbird" collection from SisTV. I'm not totally satisfied, don't know what's missing, maybe the colours are a little bit depressing, don't know.

Maybe I can make something better today. I have nothing planned, except making dinner for friends. So I'm going to scrap, blog and play on the Wii!

Make a wish

Just wanted to share this card with you. Didn't do as much scrapping as I wanted today, but still I like the things I did make. This card is based on a sketch by Sketch Saturday.

Winter is.....

Finally I got some scrapping done. This time I went with the Dutch Dare, because it is winter in Holland. We can go ice skating! I love it! So I had to make a LO about it. This is what I made of it:
Journalling is in Dutch and says: "2009 begins good. It is freezing for a long time. This means that we can go ice-skating. I went to Ritthem, Vlissing, Goes, "het Noortje" and the "Veerse kreek". Love it!

New start

In my last blog you could read my 50 goals for the new year. OLW word was "START", perfectly to make a LO about my goals. So I made one, unfortuantly I was too late to enter, but still wanted to share with you.

Love yourself

I'm taking a class on scrapinstyletv and it is so inspirational! You can peek here: Classroom

It is about motivating yourself to achieve your goals. Well mine is simple I really want to be healthier and that means eat better and go to the gym more often. Besides that I have many more goals like more scrapbooking, less stress, enjoy life, read more etc. But first of all is being healthier (is that right in English?).

Well, here is the binder for all the things that I make during the next 21 days:
