Kreatorville Kraft November Kit sneak peek

My introduction over at Kreatorville Krafts is up!!! Click here to go and check it out... Keandra had some wonderful things to say about me ... I'm still blushing ... I love you too sweetie!!! She asked us to introduce ourselves not by means of an interview, like most sites do, but ... being creative as she is, she asked us to do this on a LO. She had given all the Kreators a sketch to work with ... now let me tell you, if I've learned anything from this experience, it's that I'm not a sketchy kind of girl!!!! I struggled so hard with this, and the LO shown below is actually my third version! Yep, I chucked two LO's (perfectly good papers aaargh) in the bin. But ... I'm really quite pleased with this one.

Normally I have a clear vision in my head of what I want the end result to look like. It doesn't always end up like that, but the vision is usually there LOL. However, with this LO, there was no vision ... I just played around, adding stuff, not really knowing what I was going for. I was all ready to add my own journaling when I asked my family to help me out and say some things that would describe me. My girls said the sweetest things (they're still at that age where they adore me...), but my hubby and son started fooling around, saying all those things I'm not, like skinny, great cook, etc... or highlighting my weaknesses (scrapping addict, internet addict, ...) I was a bit annoyed at first to tell you the truth, but my sense of humour won and pretty soon we were all joking around. This gave me the idea to not take the journaling as serious as I had originally planned. To read the journaling, please click on the image ... you might learn a thing or two you didn't know about me yet, and it might even put a smile on your face...

Now I've been talking a lot about the Kreatorville Krafts November Kit, so it's high time to give you a little sneak peek ... This is one of the LO's I made with the kit.

The only things I used on this LO that weren't in the kit are my embroidery floss, paints and inks. All of the papers, embellies and alphas came with the kit. I'm telling you, this kit is awesome, perfect for girls' LO's, boys' LO's, artistic LO's, clean LO's ... everyone will be able to make something out of this kit! Mark your calendars ladies, the kit will be revealed on the 21st of this month. Don't wait until then to visit the site though, Kean has some RAK's she wants to give away ... Here's the link again.

I made this LO for my best friend. She's been going through some difficult times lately, and when I saw the "One day you will" (by Lady Antebellum) on my friend Lisa's blog, I instantly knew I wanted to use them to make a LO for my friend. You should be able to read the lyrics by clicking on the image.

So, this is turning out to be a huge post again, but I did also want to tell you about a wonderful internet friend of mine, Marit (I'm sure most of you are familiar with her awesome work) who has started a new venture. She will be teaching on line workshops in the future, and because of her blogiversary you have a chance to win some RAKs, but also a spot in her very first workshop!!! Go and leave her some love and you might just be the lucky winner!

I've also received a blog award, you know the one where you have to answer some questions using just one word, but if you've made it this far I'm not gonna try your patience any longer, I'll leave that one for next time!

Love xxx Peggy

  5. Nou, dat commentaar van Julie kan ik nooit overtreffen natuurlijk ;-) maar ik kan het eigenlijk alleen maar met haar eens zijn: GEWELDIGE layouts!!! Zo superleuk zoals je jezelf hebt voorgesteld, zo grappig met die teksten van je dierbaren (alhoewel, bij sommigen vraag je je af of ze je wel zo dierbaar zijn, hihi..). En die layout over je vriendin is ook zo mooi!! Wat is spray inkt toch een geweldig iets, he!!
    Kan je niet vertellen hoe benieuwd ik ben naar de eerste kit van Keandra!!!!!!!

    Liefs, en een fijn weekend!!

  6. Schitterende layouts hoor! je bent echt zo creatief.

  8. Fabulous work with the kit! I love how you cut out the mushrooms...I'm so gonna do that now. :)

  10. GORGEOUS work peggy!!!! seriously you are one artist!!!

    hope you have a great week!


  11. oh i adore your intro layout!!! just adoration overload here!

  12. LOL! Still laughing over your 10-year-old's "nice boobs" comment. I did read that right, didn't I??? That is one fantastic layout!!! I also love your LO for your friend. I so want to scrap those lyrics...they have become very important to me lately. I'm so glad to see you use them. Hope all is well in your world and you are feeling better. I hated to hear about your infection. Take care of yourself and hope to hear from you soon! xoxo L

  13. I think that that layout is soooo whimsical and funky and fun!! I also love the other one with all the misting!! You are on a creative roll here girly!!

  14. Hi Peggy, this is a test! My computer guy was here (again) tonight and tried something else so I'm hoping this goes through. Pressing send....

  15. I feel like a dork but it's just me testing again! I had my internet man over on Thursday night and he spent 3 hours trying to fix my problems that I've been having since June and for some reason your blog never wanted to load or let me leave comments (it would eventually but it would take me around 15 minutes of repeated trying and typing out my comments again!) haha So, testing 1-2-3 for the last time! haha

  16. I really love the "one day you will" layout - and the fact that you did it for your friend is even sweeter! Take care....

  17. omg, peggy, these are amazing!! i especially love the first one how you created yourself - you are so creative!!

  18. WOW Peggy wat een moois heb je allemaal gemaakt, goed om te zien dat je weer aan het scrappen bent!!!
