sneaks and a new challenge!

I've been working my butt of and still have nothing to show :( I hope to be able to show a few LO's next week just before I leave on vacation but for now it's just sneaks, sneaks and more sneaks... :)

This is just a little bit of the LO's I finished lately, the rest I've already sent out, but as you can see I really have been doing something and I haven't been lazy :)

Just wanted to share with you what my table looks like while I'm working on a project. And this is not even so bad, sometimes it looks like a bomb exploded. I always clean up between two projects. I'm not so organised and have a hard time already finding everything I'm looking for :) It would be dramatic if I didn't clean up in between...

The challenge for july/august will be a scraplift challenge.
What do you have to do?
Scraplift the following LO:

You can use whatever theme you like. You're free to use any color, embellishment, letters, stickers etc. you want but you're NOT allowed to use any patterned paper, just cardstock!

Because it's vacation time you have until August 30th to send in your LO.

You can send it as always to Please use your name for the title of the image you send in to make it easier for me to find them once they're saved on my computer.

Hope to find lots and lots of beautiful LO's in my inbox when I get home!
I bought a new lens for my Canon 300D. I was not very happy with the standard lens that comes with the kit and my friend Anita, who has the same camera, was raving about this lens for a long time. I´ve seen her pictures and they are beautiful, so I thought if I was gonna buy a new one anyway I´d better do it before the holidays.
It´s the Tamron AF SP 28-75/2,8 XR DI Canon and this is the first picture I took with it:

No photo editing done on this! Isn't it great? I think I'm gonna love this lens.
Today was the last schoolday in the north of the Netherlands so if you´re leaving on vacation any day now...have lots of fun, make sure you make some precious memories and don´t forget to take loads of pictures!! Enjoy!
Oh, and I almost forgot: Have a look at memorylanescrapbooking. Danielle already has the marvelous new Infuse paper by Basic Grey!! Don't miss it!

Volgens mij ben je helemaal verslaafd aan bloemen. Op iedere sneak zie ik wel een bloempje staan, haha.
Waar gaat de vakantie dit maal naartoe?
Veel plezier, Isolde

ps: toffe Lo om te liften. Zal er zeker eens over nadenken.
