Fight like a girl


The statistics in my country says one in nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer. One in nine, I think that's a lot. Better treatments are available than a generation ago, but there is still a long way to go. To help fund research Matrioshki Scrap Designs designers have made this wonderful collaboration kit Fight like a girl. The proceeds from the sale of this kit go to the Susan G. Komen race for the cure. Help fight like a girl for all girls.

Harvest Time

I love the fall season. We live in a street with large oak trees and I love those trees. I have tried to teach my girls to whistle on the acorn caps, but so far they just don't get it.
And trees mean leaves. I don't mind clearing all the leaves up, it makes for excellent photo shots and the girls are usually willing to help. Besides, as someone just pointed out to me, leaves make excellent material for crafts.

So, in honor of this wonderful season, WeeFaerie Ring Designs has a new kit out called Harvest Time. I just love it, especially as she added a mouse on my request. And a squirrel and a very cute spider. Yes, there are such things as cute spiders! LOL!

So here is my first page with it featuring my beautiful eldest girl:


You can find the kit here:





And this is my fall gift to you



Hope you enjoy and till next time

Gardening


I got the chance to work with a kit by PtiteSoruis called Rouge Tendresse. It is beautiful summery kit that makes the autumn day here feel less autumny.

Ok, I just love these teddy bears in the Teddy Bear Picnic kit WeeFaerie made. So I did another page, but this one is more for those adorable baby pics.
How about my beautiful youngest as the sweetest baby ever?

Isn't she sweet?

A little dream


I got this kit as a RAK from Damayanti and Three Sweet Chicks. I was totally inspired by the wordart as it reminded me of the beautiful song by Louis Armstrong. This is my beautiful DD pretending to be asleep.

A kit for crafts pages

EljDorado has this beautiful new kit out called Masha. The elements are totally wonderful to create pages on the topic of crafts like sewing and knitting. And as I have just since this winter started knitting again, I had to do a page on that.


My DD wearing one of my creations, an elven hat. It's actually the only thing I can knit at the momen, elven hats in all colors! With great thanks to my friend Debi for sending me the pattern!

And this is my DD1 in her own world of creativity!
