Retrospective #5 & Dutch Dare #2

What a busy week I've had.... but not busy with work thank god!
Last Sunday we had the first DT meeting of Memory Lane. It was so fun to meet all the girls in real life.. also a bit strange because you already have the feeling you know them because we had some online meetings on MSN before.

Anyway for the DT meeting we agreed to make a circle journal; we had to make 8 introduction pages about ourselves to give to the other DT members on Sunday... Well.. what can I say. There were only 3 girls who finished them all...and surprise suprise.. I wasn't one of them hihi!
When everybody is done we will all have a book with different pages from all the DT members. A fun idea!

I have also been working on the 2nd Dutch Dare! Also a last minute project of course.. but with a great outcome. Check out or click on the blinkie in my sidebar to see what this weeks dare is about and all the LO's of the other DT members. Feel free to play along with these dares. Everyone can play and there is a RAK involved!

For the Retrospective Challenge #5 I made the following LO:

Check out the website of Nat to see all the beautiful interpretations of this challenge. And if you are not already playing along, you should definitely do so. These challenges are such a great way to use your old pictures.. and they also give the opportunity for some reflection haha...I mean.. I feel really good looking at this LO... wow.. these summers in Playa d'Aro were GREAT!

Wedding LO's continued

On the pictures; the band which I arranged for our party! The band members are all friends from my husband, with some of them he plays regularly.
Check out his website to listen to some music samples!
It was supposed to be a surprise for my husband that his friends would play at our wedding but unfortunately I was stupid enough to forward an email to him from the manager of the partylocation in which we also spoke about the band...
Only a few weeks ago I told one of the band members that my husband already knew about it... HA.. and they were thinking he was sooooooooooo surprised!

Good news for Dutch Scrappers!

Have you been drooling all over the beautiful LO's made with Hambly that you have seen on sites like 2 peas in a bucket? Be sure to check out this link to see all the pieces of art created with Hambly!

Now is your chance to create such wonderful LO's yourself!
From now on you can order all your beautiful Hambly papers and overlays @ Memory Lane Scrapbooking!!!
So have a look and order some for yourself... and be sure to act quickly... I have a gut feeling that they will be sold out in no time!

Have fun scrapping and if you like you can send your creation to Memory Lane... your LO might be published on the website's gallery!

Patterned Paper Challenge # 16 - Like father like son

I just love how this LO turned out. The challenge was to create a striped background of several patterned papers. I had great difficulty combining papers this week. My first try is now staring at me from the garbage bin beneath my scraptable.... This is my 2nd try and I love it!

On the picture you see my husband and his father (who is nearly 80 years old!!!).
I printed out some characteristics that they share and glued them vertically to the bottom of the page as opposite to the horizontally placed "strips".
I guess I am not supposed to tell you this but my husband almost had tears in his eyes when I showed him this LO...hihi...

Patterned Paper Challenge # 9

This is a LO I did for the Patterned Paper Challenges, based on the 2nd book of Ali Edwards. Check them out and play along; they are fun! You can also play if you do not have the book. You can scrap about any subject you like, it is only about the use of patterned papers. Since I started these challenges I use them differently than I did before.

I am actually a bit late posting this one. I already had it done for quite a while, but lately I am not too active on posting... just scrapping and brainstorming with the new designteam! I am enjoying this a lot! We are making big plans which I cannot reveal yet but it will be a lot of fun! Great to see that when you come together in a group great things can happen!!

I also made a LO for the November Challenge for the Memory Lane Scrapbooking DT. Go check it out on the MLS website; it will not be posted here on my blog!

Hope everybody had a great weekend! I am bit tired since I went to several museums last night; it was the annual !Amsterdam Museumnight , with 40 museums / cultural institutions participating and opening until 02.00 AM on Sunday Morning. Take a look at my Dutch blog for some pictures.

I hope everybody has a good start for the coming week tomorrow! Back to work..blehhh
