Gentleman's excuse me

For the G in my music book, Gentleman's excuse me by Fish. I love this haunting song about being realistic. The pics of my DD1 fitted the page perfectly even the song doesn't apply to her as much as to me.

See, told you that kit was awesome!

I had fun at Mscraps

Mscraps had a guest CT call and well, as I had bought about quarter of that shop on their opening day I went and entered a page. And then made some more just for the fun of it. I love doing something so totally different that my usual pages. And it is so hard, because I am used to overloading my pages. I get the creeps if my page has less than 10 layers. LOL!

A page just for fun. My DD2 who has a beautiful smile.

One of the best things in the world, to cuddle your baby. DH with DD2.

My DD1 loves to dance, so I had to get the new kit by Sabrina Creations. I love this picture as it shows the enthousiasm she dances with.
Forgive the bad extraction, but the pics were taken by my cellphone and not of a good quality.

On my way

One of the goals of doing challenges is to gather points towards gift certificates. Having done all this months challenges at after5, I am now entering the ones at Shabbypickles. It is a great way to combine making pages for the many albums and maybe getting some new kits to play with.

So here are the latest.


For a challenge to write a love letter, this one is to my dear departed cat.

Having fun

Well, I am very busy on two more albums, one for DH (hope he doesn't read this, there goes my surprise LOL!) and another one for DD1. Off course combining the pages with as many challenges as I can. How else is someone to get new kits without going broke???? ROFL, too bad I never seem to win...

For after5:

This is the mixers challenge and they are quite hard. You have stuff like 4 circles, three stitches, a wordart, two pics etc. I really have to mix and match from kits to get there.

The story on the page is actually very nice. It is about my childhood and the wooden toy chest my dad had made. He also made chests for my girls and they did the same I used to do, climb in there.

Music is the key

Sometimes music is a wonderful thing. I love to listen to music and long ago, when I had time for myself, I played musical instruments. My girls and my nephew love music too. Especially if it is loud!

Made with Black Cat Designs and Rena Designs Music is the key, this was the perfect musical extraction. And I love the little piano he is walking on!

DD1 with a tambourine kind of thing. It made noise!

My new favorite kit

One of my friends favorite kit is Creation 23 by CreateWings Designs and Catherine Designs. Now I have never bought it, but when they had a new kit out, I decided to use the fact that it was on sale and I got it. And I love it. I love the papers, the vintage and grungy elements. And I haven't even used the butterflies in it yet!

I made my first page with it for a challenge at After5, a cropping challenge.

This is DD1 looking in wonder at her first fake tattoo.
She made us remove it after 15 minutes. LOL!

At Oscraps

The things that make me laugh are the things that my kids say. DD1 had a bit of trouble with headlice. I had told her that she had lice because she has this thick nice clean hair and that is where lice wanted to live. So the next day she says to me: I know why the lice live in my hair. My hair is like a palace with two trampolines!

And the other stuff, just a page for the fun of it.
