How about a gorgeous kit with red and white and black? All in the name of LOVE.

My DDs, the can fight like cat and dog, but love each other to bits.

A rare pic of me and DH on our wedding day. The text is our song, Cliche by Fish.

It's an old cliche, I love you.

Relaxation Time

Rena has a new kit out and it was the best! I loved the colors and the elements so much, I had three pages in no time! You really got to have this kit.
Usually when I create more than one page with a kit, I have one favorite page, but this time I really am so pleased with the outcome of all three!

First one is of a pic with DH and the girls, hanging around.

My DD1 being a dancing queen. She has ballet classes and she loves do dance,especially in wide loose dresses. Try and find wide loose dresses in the middle of autumn! Needless to say we have loads of discussions when she gets dressed every morning.

DD2 at a picnic in our backyard. Our backyard is visually very uninteresting, so this is much better!

Ok, I am kind of hooked. I love challenges. I have gotten into these challenges at Oscraps and they are so much fun! It helped I won the first one I ever entered. Maybe that's where it all went wrong! :-)

So here are three entries to various challenges, two are still ongoing.

For the current designer spotlight challenge at Oscraps we had to grunge it up, so here is a grunged pic of me and DD1 on holiday in France.

For a different challenge at Oscraps we had to scrap a grid. I don't really like grids, too methodical. But this one I kind of like, the black and brush work make it interesting.

For the Who needs glue digi crew challenge to scrap big letters-small pic or small letter - big pic. I have done the second one a few times, so I chose the first. I love this song by Kelly Clarkson, it is a perfect sing-a-long in traffice. The pic is of course DH.

Autumn Gold

It has been such bad weather over here, not just raining, but it was like walking or driving in a super shower or something. So I was very happy when today it dried up sunny and well. These are the days I love autumn time.

So to also celebrate the beautiful colors of autumn, Rena has a new kit out: Autumn Gold. These are my pages.

DD1 at one and half years of age.

DD2 last year, I love the light of this picture.

In Turquoise by Rena Designs

Rena has a gorgeous new kit out in the most wonderful colors, turquoise and silver-white. Of course having millions of pictures of my girls I had the most wonderful pics to go with those colors.

This is my daughters favorite birthday present, a pair of shoes, given to her by her grandmother.

The journaling reads:

This is my girl and these are her shoes. Her shoes are silver and have tiny heels under them. My girl loves them. She runs in them,dances in them and jumps in them. She can skip and stamp her feet in them. She can even go on the swings and slides with them When I see her walk, she is better at walking in heels than I am. This is my girl, my girl is four and these are her shoes.

My DD1 in one of her more thoughtful moods. I loved the turqoise color in this kit and yes, her dress is that color, I did nothing to it!

This is DD1 at a play last year where she played a ghost. She was totally adorable, especially when she stopped in the middle of the play to wave at us!

K2 zoekt K3

I just have to tell the most sweet story. For everyone who doesn't live in Belgium or the Netherlands, there is a girl band called K3 who is adored by every little girl (and quiet a few little boys). Recently one of the singers left the band and the remaining two, Karen and Kristel, decided to find a new addition. One of the tv broadcasters made a show out of this, titled K2 is looking for K3.

DD1 loved the show. She is such a fan and we've been to a lot of their live shows. She saw the advertisements on tv and begged and begged us to let her watch it, even thought it is on in the evenings. So every saturday evening we would sit together at eight and watch it. DD2 tried to join in twice but at four years old she kept falling asleep. DD1 would sit through every episode until the end, to be satisfied that her favorite (a different on each week) would not get voted off.

Until last night, last night was the big final. DD2 was so exhausted she was in bed by seven, but DD1 was ready to go! The show was wonderful, only DD1 fell asleep on my lap at about half way through. Every other show she watched it until the last second, but this one, the important one, the one she got to vote in, she fell asleep!

She was so mad with herself this morning! She was very happy that her favorite Josje had won.

Now she is looking forward to seeing the new K3 at their show in november. And getting their new single which is out soon. Just to make up for last night...
