Rolodex thingy and a little card..

I hope you all had a great weekend!! Ours flew by way too fast!!! Just can't believe its Monday already!!!

Not too much to share today.. besides this little Rolodex thingy: I started creating these for some friends a little while ago! Ever tried this before?? It's so much fun!!!!! I started with a blank Rolodex-card which I altered on both sides.. I added my picture, my name and address details..and there it was!!!!
I finished this simple card yesterday, I'm having some deadlines coming up.. but I sooo wanted to create something else too..whahaha!! I played with some Elsie-scraps and I created my own notebook paper by punching holes in my patterned paper (thanks for the idea Peggy!).

I'm so excited that I've had over 1000 visitors already since I started my blog about 3 weeks ago! Never thought anyone would ever stop by to read my blurbs...hehehe...!!

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments and for stepping by! Blogging is so much fun!!!! Yup.. another addiction.. whahahaha..

Have a great day!!

Scrap.. scrap.. scrap..

Yup.. that's what I've been doing last week.. Looots of scrapping inbetween all the other things I had to do... The weather is still not too good overhere...lots of rain... and it seems like tomorrow will be even worse!! Sooo.. we decided to rent a couple of movies, lock the doors and stay inside the house the whole time! Whahaha..

I managed to finish this layout with some more Elsie goodies (totally addicted to this colorcombo!)
Today I've done some shopping with my mom and little sister (she's having her first baby in December.. yup.. that means that I'll be an auntie in a couple of months.. whahaha). I needed some summer clothes for our trip to the US in 4 weeks. We've had some nice girl-time together and the day really flew by.

Ok, I'm shutting down the puter for now as we're gonna take our little doggies for a walk outside.

Enjoy your weekend!! (and talk to you soon!)

A secret TOOT and a layout

Another day passed by.. it's Thursday already!!! Only one day to go and it's weekend again! Are you guys having any plans? We haven't planned anything at all.. so I hope we'll be able to relax a bit..

I'm so excited...I was asked to be a guest designer for a fun monthly kit! I cannot share the exact details yet.. sorry.. but I'm so happy to be able to share it a little bit this way already... as soon as I'm allowed to tell more I'll post it here on my blog. This will be so much fun.. as their kits absolutely ROCK!

I've created this page for, our Design Team was challenged to use stamps this month... I never use stamps so that was really a challenge for me.. I'm not too happy how this page turned out.. I really miss something but I don't know what...

BTW.. have you all noticed the yummy goodies coming out after CHA?? OMG.. I really have to lock my wallet from now on... drooling over everything..I need to have it ALL.... hehe.. (my stash is not big enough already...hahahaha) I guess you're all having the same problem, right?

I'm gonna run to my scrap table right now (to organize a little bit and see if I can get some things done.. I'm having some deadlines coming up..)

Have a great day!

When is our summer ever going to start?

I'm really wondering when our summer is ever going to start this year!!! We've had such terrible weather during the last couple of weeks.. ok there were a couple of nice days.. but again today it's cold and rainy outside...makes me wanna wear a warm sweater and drink hot tea!!!!!! It's already the end of July.. it should be nice and warm outside!!! I need sun!!! Oh well.. this kind of weather makes you wanna create each and every minute of your day.. so that's the brighter side of it.. hahahaa!

Only one month to go and then we'll flying off to the US.. I hope we'll have more luck with the weather then!!! How's the weather right now at your place??

I managed to finish this layout last monday... with some more "Love Elsie" goodies! Oh and I created this little card (made with Junkitz patterned paper) for a fun challenge at {Caardvarks}:I just came back home from work.. so gotta do some aundry and other thingies..and then I'm off scrapping a little bit to see what I can get done before Pascal comes home from work.

Wishing you all a great Tuesday.. Happy scrappin' and thanks again for stopping by.. your sweet messages are making me so happy!!
