Relaxing Mood

Wow..what a title for a monday-evening-post. I had such a busy day..I had to clean up the house, I usually don't do that much in the weekends and on mondays it always looks as if there has been some sort of explosion. After a week having my husband around it was quiet in the house...kids at school, dogs outside..just me and the mess but I got it fixed. I even did some housepainting..and there is still lots of painting to do. Can you imagine how it is to paint in a room with two black long haired dogs..I most of the time have white dogs and a furry cupboard ;) On monday we also have swimmingclasses of my youngest and he did great, learned several new things and went to bed with red watery eyes..poor guy!

Remember yesterday's sneak peek...well...Relaxing Mood of Lorie M. Designs is released and available at Scrapable and Scrapladies. I made two pages with it. First page my boys were playing with leaves and had great fun, the other page is an older picture of my youngest son.

Well..that is all for today. I am off to bed..was working on a layout but PSP let me down..again..oepf..
See you tomorrow!

New kits and a Sneak Peak

As promissed yesterday a new post today! And I have enough time today as we headed to wintertime last night...our day is 25 hours today..yeah..finally...I always have to less hours on day, they should do this more often ;)
Tomorrow Lorie M. will release a new kit called 'Relaxing Mood' and I want to give you a sneek peak of this wonderful kit.

Ingeborg/Ikscrap has a new kit in store..'Time Travel' and I made two pages with it..

Now off to some older pages I still had to post here....'Extraordinary' is a collab kit between Juno Designs and Jennifer Barrette and I made a page with it. I still had a serie of pictures of my boys which I scrapped before but I love those pics so much..needed to use them once more (and maybe once again).

Another kit by Juno Designs is 'Dude! the kit'. I created this cool page of my oldest son and it was mentioned at the GSO at DST :)

A non-ct layout..yeah..sometimes I do them too...Jofia Devoe's last kit 'Kit for cold Days'..I really looooove her work..and used it for a layout with a picture of my oldest son when he was 1,5 years old..isn't he a cutie?!

Kristin Aagard RAK'ed me with her wonderful kit 'Sweet Apples'....I reallly loved working with it and I am absolutely satisfied with this page of my youngest son..

Í made another page with Gina Marie Huff's kit 'Kickin' Up the Leaves'..it was for a scraplift challenge at the WW-blog.

Also Patricia Christensen released a new fall kit..love it as I love all Pat's work (and Pat herself of course). Her kit is called 'Summer's End'. I used pictures of my boys picking pumpkins for Halloween..which reminds me that we have to carve faces in them this week.

For my guest CT at Faith True's team I worked with two other kits...'Day Tripper' and 'All about me' and made a page with both of them.

And last but not least a page with a Halloween kit by 'Nikki and Jen'..'Spookilicious'

So..I am off to cook my husband a meal..he was home for a week and will be leaving tomorrow for another week on the road. Hope to see you all tomorrow for a better look on Lorie's new kit and the layout I made with it...bye!

New Teams

I have so much to tell..so many great new things to share but first of all..I decided to start blogging on a daily base. I can take more time to promote my designers stuff when I blog every day and it doesn't take hours like it will take me now to show you all layouts.

I have been published again..this time in 'The Daily Scrapper, issue October 2008'..I feel really honored as they just pick a few layouts every month!!

So..my layouts..first of all, Phuong Ton asked me to sort of guest for her. She made two great kits.. Orchid Dreams, Reawakening and Orchid Dreams, The Beginning and I made a page with both of them.

For Juno Designs I made a page with her new collab kit with Anja J. 'Colorful Nature'. Really love the bright colors of this kit and love how this page of my youngest son turned out...

One of my new CT's is of Lorie M. Designs. She is a 'new' designer and I really love her style, a combination of digitally made and realistic elements. I worked with her Ma Boo Hay collab kit by Crop Dreams (Lorie M. Designs, Aimee Designs, Cactus Mango). It is a charity kit to celebrate Filipino American History Month to benefit Opportunity House - a Pearl S. Buck Foundation International program that helps children in Asian countries, like the Philippines.

I also made a page with her Halloween kit, Spooky Fun Halloween..

I made two Halloween pages with Symphonie's new kit 'Halloween Spirit'...a wonderful kit for halloween and fall pages!

..next page made it to 'Layout of the Day' at ScrapScandiStyle'

A new kit by Nikki Scott named 'Monster Madness'...I asked my kids to make scarry faces but that was not so easy as they thought it would be...I think they look more funny than scarry ;)

During the autumn-schoolholidays we made a long walk and I took some great pictures of my boys...with one of them I made this page with Juno Designs kit 'Fallin'. I think I rather have fall kits than summer kits, love the colors!

Julie Mead of E-scapeandscrap asked me several times to join her site-CT and she is such a nice lady so how could I refuse....I made a first page with Kay Eflin's kit 'From Boys to men' and it is a page of my youngest son fishin'.

Another new team....Glam Fairy Designs aka Stephanie Trouve...her work is amazing. I already knew some of her kits and I am very happy to be on her team. I made two pages with her kit 'Witch Out!'

Pepeetje/Petra made a new kit 'Memories'. I really loved to make some vintage layouts with it of my family...a first one of my mom being pregnant of me and the second one of my grandparents seeing me for the first time...

Jen E. made a new kit called 'Oh Brother' and I used some great pictures of our walk to scrap a page with.

Gina Marie Huff made a gorgeous new kit 'Full of Wonder' and I made this awesome page with it, sorry..I really love it myself ;)

Rest of the pages I still didn't post here, will be in tomorrow's post...as I have to go and celebrate my uncle's birthday! Tomorrow I will also give you a sneak peak to Lorie's new coming kit ;)Oh..and don't forget..all images are clickable for further credits!

See ya tomorrow!!

Toooooooot...I am Published

Yeahhh...above layout page is Published in October's Issue of 'Artisan Notebook'. It was published in an item about blendingtechniques. Can't tell you how proud I am to see my page there!!

Since last week I am in Juno Designs'CT..she is Dutch, very talented and fun and I really love her designs. I made above page with her wonderful kit 'Rainbow Punch' which is collab with Valorie Brown.

Jill (of Juno Designs) teamed up with Nikky Scott (I am ct'ing for her too..lol) and they made a great fun kit 'Beyond the Sea'. I used pictures of my son, playing in the swimmingpool during our stay in Italy!

This is my third page for Jill's team and I used her gorgeous kit 'Another Sunny Day'. I thought the colors of the picture really would fit great with the kit but later on they pointed me on the snow and summer flowers..strange combination..but still..love it!

A picture of me with my oldest son...I always loved this picture and finally found a moment to scrap it! I used MK Designs' 'September Grabbag'.

My Guest CT at MK Designs ended and this was the last page I did for her. It is my oldest son and our dog Daisy, just 9 weeks old. I used MK Designs'kit 'Wauff' for it and love how it turned out! A cool page!! There is also a cute cat in this kit..you should really take a look! And guess what...Marlies is having a huge sales this weekend!!

Gina Marie Huff at Weeds and Wildflowers released her wonderfall new kit 'Kickin' Up The Leaves'. It is huge, wonderful, colorful and filled with gorgeous elements and papers! I scrapped a picture of my boys..almost 2 years ago! I just realized that they grow up sooo fast now!

This layout has been made for the '3-things-challenge' I am playing at the W&W-blog. The challenge? Well..create a layout with 2 frames, leaves and some blending..not a big deal..everyone can do that! I used pictures of my hubby with our oldest dog Quincy...don't they look great together!

This layout has been made for a scraplift challenge at Shabbypickledesigns. I used Holly Designs new kit 'Portland'. I used a picture of my youngest son. He looks so happy on the picture..can you believe that I took this picture just after we left 'first aid' as he had an accident in the swimmingpool and his chin has been stitched by the gorgeous Italian doctor Alessandro, who might have been a doctor from ER with his looks..lol.

In October I will be Guest at Faith True's CT. I made my first page for her and used 'Belly Pop Pregnancy Collab' by Faith True and Tara Dunstan! During my first pregnancy I only made this picture of my belly, I had totally forgotten to do it before and I had already had contrations as we rushed to take this picture.

For my CT of Nikky Scott I made 2 pages with her kit 'Space Ranger'..it turned out to be real fun layouts! Both layouts are made with pictures of Disney, Paris...we went to 'Buzz Lightyear' over there and did some lasershooting...funnnn!!

Thanks for looking again..hope you liked my pages and hope to show you many more next time!!
