#55:Take me to the ocean

On Challenge yourself a great challenge: a picture of yourself with an ocean theme. In Holland it's a very hot summer, so even the thought of the ocean is refreshing.
I've used paper from DLS, very expensive and a bit disappointing, but some of the bits are nice enough.
The picture is taken in Casablanca, Morocco, one of the best beaches I've ever been.

Challenge Yourself: #50! Color challenge

This month the challenge on Challenge yourself:
a color palette and an added twist, use a heart.
I've made a layout with two schoolpictures with my sisters, using a little quote 'always in my heart'.
This paper is Prima, Rose quarts.

It's a bit of a pitty that the picture doesn't really show how well this layout has turned out. So much background and details, but ok, now it's on my wall in my scraproom and I love it every day   ;)

More than words: tags and birthday

Nice challenge on more than words...

Made a smal canvas. Made tags from al kinds of stuff with the gelli plate. Then put some junk & some flower from the scrap table together on it. Purple was the color of my nice dress.

Me @ 8, holding a birthdaycard. Love that memory.

Well have not been blogging for a big time ... to busy working ... but this year I hope that I'll take more time for my health and my creativity ....

On Challenge yourself number 49 is to get inspiration from this song: you Raise me up... super nice.

I've used a picture of my mum and me, on her 86e birthday. A beautiful day. Tried to make a bit of a baroque page, didn't work out like I wished but it is special to me.
Used Kaisercraft, love the brand.

Have a super nice 2018!

Challenge yourself: #41

Challenge yourself #41: a happy moodboard

Moodboards are difficult to me. I don't understand them, so much going on, colours, emotions and stuff, what the *** do I take from it. I'm a very lineair and causal thinker....

This is a good mood board, but it goes everywhere for me...

I've started some project, b&w with blue, an umbrella picture, nothing...

Had some terrible weeks, with my work and family trouble, and then a holiday in Italy. Super but I was ill for 4 days ....

Coming back my apple things (not the healthy apple) didn't work together because of some double indentification ..... grrrrr

Finaly I managed to finished a project, so glad it turned out OK.
Scrapbooking sometimes gives you only fun....

Challenge yourself: Inspire

On Challenge Yourself the new challenge #40 is: use the word INSPIRE.

 Have used a picture of me, with my son about 3 days old. Nothing like a small baby to inspire you.

The word is on the zipper-pull; love those small details.

Have a good week!
