I did what I promissed myself yesterday, got out some nice goodies and made a summery LO. This one is for the One Little Word Challenge "Simplicity". If you don't know this blog yet, go check it out! Soooo much inspiration there!!

Journaling reads:
"It's the simple every day pleasures that make life worth living! The smell of a single lavender flower in my garden means more to me than the most expensive perfume ever will!!!"

Had a nice surprise in the mail today. Ingrid's RAK arrived and it's just wonderful! I love flowers, chipboard and buttons so this RAK is perfect! Thanks so much Ingrid. You gave me a little sunshine on a rainy day! :)

Last thing I want to share today is this little paperbag album, they are so much fun to do! I taught it as a workshop a few times and this one was in the summer edition of Scrap Art Zine. The story is about my DD Marlijn and our friends son Pim. We spend a vacation weekend together and those 2 were dragging around the doll the whole time, no matter where we went... They craked us up acting like they were a married couple with a kid :) They took very good care about their baby by the way!!!

It's awful quiet in blogging land don't you think? When I go to my bloglines feeds these days there are only a few udates a day. For the first time in ages I can keep up *LOL*. A lot of you must be away on vacation... it certainly isn't the weather in the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany that keeps you from blogging.... :(

Anyway, thanks for popping by and have a nice evening!

That paperbag album is stunning. I never made one so I guess I should give it a try.
Enjoy this weekend. They say it will be hot and sunny over here.
Take care, Isolde

Beautiful layouts again Birgit. The one with the felt background in your previous post is just awesome. Blogging is not my priority at the moment but my brother and SIL with the kids are. They're staying with us for 5 weeks and we have lots of fun and time to catch up.
