Love of my life

This Lo has been on my desk for almost a week now and I finally finished it! Again with the lovely MME papers! They are just so pretty! And so is my sweetie!!! I love him to pieces really! Monday and Tuesday he will be in Belgium and I will really miss him like crazy! I will probably stare at his pic (or this lo) for 2 days (ok I am not that bad but just to give you an idea!)

Majootjes birthday/movement

How is your weekend? Mine is great. I am feeling a lot better now after a few days of flu and headaches! I am still tired but hé if that's all!
Yesterday it was Majootjes birthday and ofcourse we visited! Igor was working there all day to make a fence so Aika (the dog) can't escape! He picked me up at about 2 pm and we went over there again. I scrapped her a little book called "relax" with a cd inside with relaxationmusic and exercises, an insence burner and some lovely insence. I also made a little package as a birthdayrak from scrapfever with MME paper, lace and ribbon, brads, eyelets and chipboard to make an all girlie layout about her little niece. But then she got me presents as well!!! I got 4 little boxes of brads, lovely colors and bling bling, totaly my style so thanks again Majootje! And it wasn't even my birthday! We had a great time, took some pictures and tried to put together a tv table. 2 blondes and a not so abvious description (it was a do-it-yourself package) it took us over 30 minutes to get that little thing together but we laughed a lot! Here are some pics of Aika and us! Crazy funny silly lovely soft cuddle! (and normally I am afraid of dogs!)

In the mood!

For scrapping! I again finished some lo's with wonderful new MME paper, and 1 with some flowers from BG Mellow.

These were all fast lo's, unbelievable that I could do that! I consider myself a terribly slow scrapper, but this is wonderful! Once I got the hang of it they just kept coming! So you can probably guess what I am going to do now right?
ps Yesterday I got 1 exam again and this morning mailed it back so please keep your fingers crossed for me! Hope to hear the results very soon!

New Lo!

Hi again!
This morning I started scrapping with the new MME papers that I showed earlier on and this is what I came up with! I love it and it took me a long while to finish it. All those dots you see are actually very small strass stones. This is really difficult paper but I love it! I think Angela + MME is a good match as well ;-) (click to enlarge)

I am already picking paper from my stack to make a new lo! Love this stuff and it inspires me a whole lot today! Off I go again!


Hi all,
Well holiday is coming to an end and I really DON'T like it! We had a great 3 weeks together and did a lot of fun stuff and I pushed a lot of my own boundries which is great!!! I am sad that Igor has to work again this monday and I am home alone again. But I am already looking forward to christmas as he will have another 2 weeks of again!
Yesterday my huge order came in which I am really happy with! The new MME came in! And ofcouse lace and ribbon, chipboard letters and christmas figures. Love them, well let pics talk for themselves! (click on them to enlarge)

Another update will follow soon!

Online crop

Time really flies! It's already wednesday 2 pm!!

Yesterday evening we had an online crop again at a messageboard and this was the first one I actually participated in! The other ones I made afterwards. I loved the sketch and loved how it turned out as well.
I used Basic Grey Mellow which I found hard to use but I wanted to make a manly lo of Igor so I had to choose something else than pink or purple (cause that aint very manly now is it?) This is how it turned out:

Now I am working on a lo about me again (how selfish) with an old Basic Grey sheet of paper. I am kind of wanting to use my old paper as loads of new stuff is coming out this month and next! So looking forwards to the new MME!!!
I also scrapped some more cards with leftovers! So glad I didn't throw them away!
What are you up to now?

* Last week we went out taking trips on 4 of the 7 days
* I wrote a lot the last few days
* Through writing my head is getting clearer and talking to someone special is helping me big time too!
* Ok the last few days I didn't practise yoga nor meditation but before that, I spend at least 40 minutes per day on it!
* I tried out 2 new cupcake recipes
* I worked on my current certificate a lot (today) and 1,5 chapters are done!

* We bought a new lens for our EOS 350D camera

* And I already bought a few christmasgifts already (instead of saving money)

That's quite a list I think so it's all working out very very well although it seems like hard work at times!
Leaving you with this and hoping it might inspire you to think about things you want to achieve in life as well!

Holiday update

So here I am again! Fully enjoying our holiday, doing fun stuff, enjoying each others company, being creative together, laugh a lot and visit fun places and most of the times forget the camera! What kind of scrapper am I? I should stick it to my wrist I guess! Anyway a new week starts today and because of the weather we didn't plan anything! Which means scrapping!!!
A few days ago Corinne Delis started with her workshop "finding you" that I am in. I completed the first assignment yesterday and here it is: (sorry for the bad pic)

I also worked on my list again which I will post in a second log today! I love to see progress in such a short amount of time!
Well of I go again!
