busy as always

yeah I know... it's been over a week again since I've blogged.
I'm busy as always. Made some cards for Cards Only and I'm working on my projects for the Scrapbook Magazine already. Also busy preparing the workshops at Paper and Pictures so there's not a lot to share at the moment.
I do have two layouts but I need to photograph them first.

Today the freight finally came in, but I was alone so everything is still in boxes. I dragged them inside and I can tell you that 26 boxes of scrapbook material is enough excersize for one day... pff... But I know there are some awesome collections in there and that makes it ok :D

Yesterday Henri and I went shopping for my birthday present. It's the first year he's not surprising me with a gift, I choose it myself. He knew what he wanted to give me, but we hadn't seen it live yet. So we went together and now I can't wait to open it ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with the pictures of my Lily Bee layouts...

Last Saturday we (Truike, Jolanda, Samanta and I) flew to Barcelona to spend a few days taking pictures and visiting the most popular places of this wonderful city.
We started with a lot of sunshine but on Monday the weather was really terrible! It was pooring and we're walking up to our ankles in the water, even CNN broadcasted a topic about the horrible weather in Barcelona...
But still we've had a really good time together. Visiting La Palau de Musica (the Music theatre) was my favorite. What a gorgeous building!!
Right here I'm sitting on the roof of Casa Milia, with the Sagrada Familia on the backgroud... the proof I was really there :D

And the four of us in front of the 'huge' Sagrada Familia....
The rest of the pictures will be 'scrap-material' ;)

I'll leave you with one of my favorite layouts, which was published in SBM23 showing my best friends little girl...

Enjoy your weekend!

Prima classes by Tracie

Today I finally had some time off for myself and I had the oppertunity to join two Prima Marketing classes from Tracie Hudson. I'm a huge fan of her projects for Sassafras Lass, Prima Marketing and former Bad Girls Kits designs. So I hád to join :)
We've created two layouts with different techniques, like painting and sewing.
I'd like to share my projects with you....

A layout using a transparent flock background with with paint, tule, pearls and flowers.

A clear paintable painted with acrylics and stickles. And take a close look at the flower centers. Aren't they great!?!

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice weekend!

The challenge is up!

Yeah! The challenge is up!!
This is my first challenge for Graphic45 and I'd love to know more about YOU!
In exchange I've created a mini about me @ 30....

Please visit the Graphic45 blog and join me this month!

The album is a binder book by Maya Road. I've painted it with Paint Dabber Snow Cap and 'glimmer misted' the pages with Pearl.
I've used mainly the brand new 'Domestic Goddess' collection papers, but you'll also find some 'Botanicabella' butterflies and 'Fashionista' flowers.
The frame on the cover is from Melissa Frances and I've made it look 'old' with some oil based paint. The blue glitter is Mica also from Melissa Frances. The clock-frames are from Tattered Angels and the pearls are dew drops from The Robin's Nest.

Thanks for looking!

ps: If you'd like to see the mini IRL.... I've brought is to work @ Paper & Pictures...
