Brilliante weblog


The lovely Miranda (saffiertje)has awarded me a blog award, so sweet!! The funny thing is that she is from my hometown in Holland called Emmen. She moved there after I had left so we have never met. It's lovely to know a scrapper from my former hometown though and I always try to find pictures of Emmen on her LO's or the photo's on her blog.



Soooo I have to pass the award on!



Oh my... that is not easy!! So many lovely bloggers/scrapbookers out there!

The first one is too easy as it is for my sweet friend Liz!! She is an awesome scrapbooker, creates gorgeous sketches and is a lovely person. She is just been chosen to be a designer on a Canadian site. Go to her site and have a look!!

The second one goes to the lovely Kate M. She is an awesome scrapper and is my co stylist (just like Liz) at the scrap boutique. It's so lovely getting to know her better, she is gorgeous!!



Next one is for Bek Vavic. What can I say, she is a great artist, love what she does (and she's a great blogger too!!!). She's a fellow Canberran but we've only met once... not enough!!!



Then Karen. She's one of the gorgeous DT's at Crafting in Style (together with Liz).


I love her style, her support and the fact that she is an awesome girl!



Last but definitely NOT least is the gorgeous Krissy!! She's a fellow Stylish sketch blog design sister. She creates gorgeous lay outs and has a way with flowers, just awesome!! She is also a lovely lovely girl!! Wish I could meet her IRL!!



There are heaps more out there that I would like to award this award to but these girls are my favourites.



So what else has happened scrappy wise??


Chels from ScrapBoutique send me these gorgeous Rose Moka papers to have a play with. Those papers are just so awesome!! Lovely rich colours, good size paper weight, just gorgeous!! This is what I made with them.







I also took part in a Chinese Whispers challenge at the boutique and this is my version of the LO>



This Lo is the one I created for my first challenge at Scrap Boutique.





This weeks sketch at the Stylish sketch blog is a lovely layered one made by Liz. This is what I did with it.


Speaking of Crafting In Style. We are cooking up a gorgeous competition that is starting very soon. Go and have a look and join in. It's going to be so much fun!! Click here to have a look at what's coming :)

My mum and Evert are busy renovating their house and are staying at a camping for the time being which means we can't talk on the phone :(

So, in case you are reading this at work, I just want to say hello to my mum and big hugs and kisses to you and Evert. Mwah, love you!!

Happy scrapping :)

Boutique Stylist Challenge

My first challenge for ScrapBoutique is up.
Go and have a look here and I'd love you to join in!!!

We all had a lovely weekend. Allan went to the Bay with his friend to spend some time near the ocean. They had a great time!!

The kids and I went to a birthday party from one of their little friends, we had breakfast at Brand depot and spend some time at the Black Mountain Peninsula.
We had not been there for more than 2 years. The last time I took Chris and Ruby there was when I was pregant with Lucy. Good thing we went again as it was lovely and they all had a great time. Next time we'll bring a picnic too!
I have to say a belated happy birthday to my little Big brother who turned 38 last week!!

Happy birthday Jeroen!!!!!

Your pressie is on it's way!!
Just wanted to say thank you to all the lovely girls who congratulated me on my DT spot at Scrapboutique, mwah, thank you so much!!!!
That's all for today, back to do some more scrapping for the CC at Scrapboutique :)


Happy scrapping!
