Kiddie Lit / Scrap the Girls

Hello my sweet friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I had a marvellous lazy Sunday afternoon. It hadn't stopped raining all day, all the excuse I needed to spend my entire day scrapping ... this is what I came up with:

This LO was inspired by 2 challenges. The first challenge over at Kiddie Lit stated we had to use green, use the word "giving", use a tree/leaves image and doodle. For the challenge over at Scrap the Girls we had to create a "scene" LO. I thought both challenges went well together. You have until the end of the month to participate in either challenge should you be interested...

I found out one thing while doing this LO, I'm not good at layering embellies! I have several embellies here (sent to me by my friend Julie, thanks again!) that would work so well on this LO, but I just couldn't find a suitable place for them. Something I'll definitely have to work on, as I do like the look of clustered embellies!

This is one of those photos I would have thrown away if it had not been for my scrapping. The picture is out of focus ... I was sitting down when Christina came to give me some flowers she picked, and I shot this picture upwards ... as a result (and because I absolutely know nothing about photography...) the flowers show up crystal clear, but Christina's face is all blurry. For the purpose of this LO however this picture is just perfect! I did edit the picture in Picnik to give it that aged look.

Well, that's it, nothing more to tell. I've come to the conclusion that I'm leading a pretty boring life LOL. It's ironic really, now that I've finally decided for myself to share more personal stuff here on my blog, nothing worthwile telling about is happening... Oh I could tell you I'm getting depressed with our weather here, and that I wish summer would finally arrive, but I want to leave you all on a happy note, not whining about things I can't change anyway.

So, on a happy note, it's high time to do some cleaning ... haha, not really happy about that, but I'll make the best of it. I'm gonna put on some happy music and dance the day away, mopping's so much more fun when shaking that booty LOL.

    leuke lo geworden, vind het konijntje super leuk! echt grappig die challenges vind je niet?! met het kaarten maken weet ik het soms al niet laat staan dat ik het met scrappen probeer hihi. heb wel weer een paar leuke lo's op scrapbook gezet aangezien dat meer jouw ding is hihi

    groetjes vanuit een regenachtig rotterdam

  6. hoi peggy

    ja het was toen echt super nood weer, maar vannacht weer hier in rotterdam, werd om 1 uur wakker van de herry, en weer het zelfde noodweer als een paar maanden terug! zover ik weet is alles hier heel, ik woon in een rijtjes huis, dus zolang de ramen er nog in zitten is alles goed hihi. ik zal duimen voor je dat ze alles voor je gaan vergoeden, wand zoveel schade is ook geen pretje. en je hebt idd geluk gehad met je auto! helaas voor de buren was het wat minder.

    de challanges zijn leuk, maar voor het scrapbooken zou ik het persoonlijk niet doen, jouw lo's zijn altijd prachtig, maar het is niet echt mijn styl van scrappen, maar vind het super om te zien! dat is echt waar!
    hopelijk vond je mijn lo's ook leuk, was leuk weer even te babbelen


    ps: wie had hier nou spraakwater op de vroege ochtend?! hihi

  7. Oh, Peggy, this is beautiful!!! I really love all of the colors together and the meaning behind the title is sooooo amazing. You did a wonderful job with this one, my friend. :)

    I miss you sweetie!! ((Hugs))

I hope you will play along with this month's prompt...I just KNOW you will rock it! ***HUGS & BIGGER HUGS***
