Winters day

Scrap kits have reached the winter and christmas kits! I love these kits, amazing colors and beautiful way to frame those christmas kits. Youknow, the ones I always forget to take, being too busy with cooking and presents and such. Oh well, there's always this year..

And then I can use this to frame them: Winters day, a collaboration between Rena and Marta

DD1 at her second christmas. She loved (and still does) christmas trees!

DD2 trying on her christmas hat.

Rena Designs latest is a far cry from winter, it is such a beautiful spring kit! Due to work pressure I only have one page done, but more will come.

Look out the window and discover the world. DD2 looking out the window, ready to discover the world. She's actually standing on a rocking chair trying to climb over or on top of it. She's forever covered in bruises.

A few weeks ago there was a challenge at Oscraps for Sue Cummings Designer Spotlight. She asked us to scrap something for each and every day. So I scrapped something about each and every day each and every day for a week. This is the result:

This one is to tell my girls to take time to enjoy the beauty in nature each and every day.
Paper (as overlays) and wordart from Sue Cummings Designer Spotlight Freebie
Frame from Surround it by Merkely Designs

Make someone laugh each and every day. This is my DD2 clowning about. I think her life's motto is this, she has everyone in hysterics at least once a day. The pics by the way have been taken by her big sister. Not bad for a six year old!
Everything with Explosions of Fun by Natasha NaSt

I really wanted to do a page around the wonderful wordart Sue Cummings has made. I thought this picture of DD2 fits the text and I love the colors of the sky and daffodil fields arround our house.

Dance each and every day. My DD1 loves to dance.

I turned the saying around. Something you don't do each and every day, lie on the back of a dinosaur (and no, he's no real!). DD1 resting during a visit to the dinosaur garden.

Believe in the magic of winter

Rena has the best kit out: winter. I absolutely adore the wordart in it. This is one of DD1 and DH a few years ago in Germany, making a snowman.
