a lot to share...

I didn't have much time last week to update so now I've got a lot to share!
First of all the LO's made with the wonderful
scrap-club kit. I had so much fun with this kit!
At least I made a few LO's about Lennart again. He's not so keen on having his picture taken so I don't have that much nice ones of him but I really like these. The first LO is about his favourite way to dress, wich is as comfortable as possible! As soon as he comes home from school he changes into track-suit and he loves to wear a cap so he doesn't have to "do' his hair :)

The next LO is about Lennart using a cigar to light the fireworks the day before new year. He thought it was kind of tough to act like he was smoking, lol.

The little felt book was a gift of
Bonnette who brought one for all of us Alliance girls when se came back from her trip to the US and we met at Anita's surprise.
I was lucky to get an orange one! I love orange and it went so well with the scrap-club kit that I just had to pimp it up a little...

The last LO I made using this kit is one about Marlijn with her dearest little friend knuffel.

The next two projects where made using the lovely GetInspired! kit from De Creatie.
For the little book I asked my family members what their favourite vacation destination is and why. We, parents, like to go to France but all three kids seem to agree on... Centerparcs! *LOL*

The LO speaks for itself. To bad Kirsty has to miss these kind of meetings 'cause she's living in England...

And then there was the Wacky Workshop Weekend. I already told you how much fun it was and now I want to show you what I did. I attended 3 workshops of Celine Navarro wich all where awesome.
The first one was about using paint, aquarel pastels and pens ON your PHOTO. It's not really hard but it's more about daring, yikkes... But Celine made it look soooo easy, "and btw", she said, "what terrible things can happen, the worst thing is that you ruin your picture... well, you just get a new one". And she is right of course. It was fun going out of my comfort zone wich it surely was! Also thought it was fun using the chipboard swirl like this, only problem now is that it doesn't fit in any album :)

The second one was about transfers using gel medium and aceton. No good examples of that yet. It needs practicing and besides that I didn't have the right transparencies. Something to practice at home but very fun!

The third workshops was about making your own background paper using gesso and paint. Don't think I'm really gonna use this in my own LO's but it was fun learning a new technique!

At the evening crop I had a hard time to get started, it was fun just to sit and listen and see what everybody was doing. But finally I made this LO using Corinne´s awesome paperline Cosmic Energy!

Today the april kit of scrap-club arrived and it's just as great as the last one, can't wait to start using it! Right now I'm working on something else that's exciting, can't tell anything yet but will be soon!

Finally I want to show you a sneak peek of the workshop I'm teaching on april 14-15.

It's a colorful world! For more info click on the button at the right side or here!

Wishing you all a wonderful sunday!
