memories of summer

don't know how but somehow my goals for 2008 - at least scrapwise - seems to work out!! Here is another LO I just finished. DH is not home this evening so this involved some walking around, getting new supplies, bringing the used ones away, cleaning the dishes while paint is drying, having some phone calls, .... but that was just fine, cause I was on my own and nobody got disturbed while watching tv.
I'm bad at these things: sometimes I have a movie on, the computer is running, I'm trying to do too many things at a time!!
But anyways: here is my summer 2007 LO and I'm hoping for a great summer this year ( which means for me not too hot but still great to be outside, a little bit of wind touching the skin, ...)
supplies: PP Danyeela , overlay Hambly , flowers Prima , stamps, cardstock, pen, ribbon

the GOOD stuff

is my latest LO. It talks about all the feelings that I experienced since being a mother - well I guess not about all of them - just the good ones. But I wanted to document them so I will never forget this first years with Felix.

my first birthday

I don't remember that day or the pictures we took but this particular one used on this LO is really my favourite pic of that time. I really love almost every single one of these old pics and even got a whole lot of the old negatives scanned so I can print them whenever I want. (they don't do that format of negatives in the drugstores here anymore!! but from a CD it works!)

I just love how my twin cousins and me are on this pic together with my grandparents. It is not a perfect picture but I just love it so much!!!

Close Up: Did make some chipboard accents painted with acrylic paint and isedstickers on them. Covered then the whole thing with GlossyAccents by Ranger

First LO of 2008

A couple of nights ago I tried something new scrapwise: I started to pull out pics that I want to scrap and put them into folders together with a piece of paper where I put some notes either about the journaling or the LO or the kind of paper I want to use.
Just something I want to try and see if that helps me to get more LO's done. So far it seems to work. Because of these folders I kept thinking about some of the LO's-to-be and just went for one of them tonight! Voila, here's my christmas LO 2006!!!

I used some patterned paper I had sitting around for I guess about 2 years plus a pretty new stamp for the journaling lines and some glitter ( also sitting here for quite a long time!! Never had a real use for it but here it seemed to be just perfect!!).

Want to try to use some of the "old" stuff this year too. Sometimes I have a hard time using things because they are just so pretty and I'm afraid of using them ( if that makes sense?!?).
