I wanted to say thanks to all of you who took the time to leave a comment on my projects in Scrapbook Magazine. I received so many positive reactions by mail, comments on my blog, at the store, pm's at SIS and even on my Hyves (so sorry, I never go there, because it takes so much time....).

You inspired me all to make some lovely new projects for the next magazine.
And I'm proud to announce my assignment for a project with the brand new Graphic45 papers!
G45 was so kind to approve the use of their new material allready. So the article will be hotter than hot! I have only one more week to come up with some brilliant projects. The only problem is.... I have too much inspiration!!
Do you know that feeling? Having so many ideas that you don't know where to start? Usually I start with a couple of projects at once. But now I have only two kits so I have to choose where to start with....

Today I bought some other stunning scrap stuff. All the new October Afternoon papers, their o so cute charms, the rubons and a stamp set. My weekend will be to short :)

I want to much....

Bleh... I'm not feeling well. I guess I crossed the line again and I'm instandly warned.
I have to take is easy and most important feel at ease when I take it easy.
I constantly feel the rush like I NEED to do something. There's just no rest. Not in my body and not in my mind....

So I try to look at the good things that happened yesterday and memorize them instead of the pain. And of course there is always something good that happens and otherwise I'll make something good happen :)
Yesterday I finally bought Photoshop Elements, just a present for myself to edit pictures and make myself a little slimmer since I don't seem to loose any weight anymore.
This morning I took my latest projects and showed them to Truike. She loved them all so I left them at the store so she can take pictures for the next Scrapbook magazine. I'm not sure if she's gonna use them all because it were 7 projects at once and she already had a couple of projects.
The new magazine is appearing the first week of August.

So now I can focus on the gorgeous new papers of Graphic45 they are absolutly stunning! Don't miss the sneak on July 1st!

Be you...

I'm very busy working on my DT projects, but I can't share them with you yet.
So I decided to lift a layout, just to relax and share this cool Heidi Swapp stuff with you again.
I really LOVE playing with the pink, black and white :)
Hope you like it as well. The design is from my SISter Kasia. Make sure to check out here gallery, she's amazing!

Graphic45 projects

Pff... I've been so busy last week!

The driveway is finally finished, but it was a lot of work! Planted some new flowers in the backyard, got behind with the laundry, but finally everything is back to normal again.
Did find some time to make some projects for the G45 DT:

Happy birthday OLW

My all time favorite challenge exists one year, and that's why this weeks word is ONE.

I really love this challenge. It helps me to think about me and to keep positive. The girls who provide this challenge are the greatest. They always take the time to check out my layout and leave a comment. Their examples are always beautiful and inspiring, just like the word.
So I made this layout for them, for OLW, my number ONE favorite challenge.

Because it's my favorite challenge, I used my favorite colors and all my current favorite techniques. Please check out my SISgallery for the details.

I was inspired by an awesome Heidi Swapp workshop from Monique Jacobs, she makes the best mini albums ever!

Thanks for looking and leaving a comment!

This must be my lucky week! I'm so happy to be a part of the G45 DT. Yesterday I received my paperkit including two fabulous new collections “Playtimes Past” and “Botanicabella.”
Both feature the rich vibrant color, imaginative design and vintage charm Graphic 45 is known for. “Playtimes Past” flashes back to an era when little boys could be found playing with their trains and tinker toys while little girls played with their paperdolls for hours. I know for sure that you won't be able to stop playing with these stunning papers. At least I won't!

Amazing possibilities with an allure of antiquity are found in “Botanicabella’s” timeless textures and rich patina’s. Beautiful papers that make you daydream and bring you back to nature. I just love the charm of them!
Graphic45 will unveil the beautiful new collections on their website July 1st.

Look what I found in the mail today.....
It's a box full of Paper Valise goodies! Flowers, buttons, ribbons, pins, tags, two adorable little suitcases and all in my favorite color.... PINK!!....
What a big surprise! I won the OLW in November last year but I never received the PAper Valise package. I thought that there must have gone something wrong shipping the package and suddenly, out of the blue (ehm.. pink) there it was.... so much yummie stuff!

I promissed to share a G45 layout with you as well....
I've used the Baby 2 Bride collection and my new sewing machine :)

Thanks for looking, enjoy your weekend!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!!!!
I've reached my scrapp'n goal for this year, to be published in a magazine!
Some of my layouts are published in Scrapbook Magazine.
I was so excited when I went to pick it up (couldn't wait for the mail.....) that I overlooked the articles. My hands were shaking and I couldn't stop smiling. I'm so proud of the result!
The close up photo's are brilliant, they show the little details exactly. There are four projects from me in it and I've made some new projects allready for the next magazine!
And now I have to wait till everybody receives her magazine and it will take two or three more days before you can buy it in the bookstore....
Please leave a comment if you've seen it!

I wish the weather could stay like this.
Right now, the sun is shining, there's just a little breeze and the temperature is lovely. Unfortunately there's rain and thunder on the way.
Like I told you, we had a wedding last Friday and the bride was really shiny like the weather right now. Isn't she pretty! And look at Stefhan, he was looking so handsome in his suit.
The party was great! Lot's of foods and drinks, awesome DJ's ( and a perfect location.
The party with Gerard Joling was also a success. He was really in the mood and everybody was singing along. I don't have pictures, because I wanted to party instead of watching my camera all the time :)
Good thing we had some time to recover yesterday ;)
I'm working on a new G45 layout right now, hope to share it with you tonight.
