Kreatorville Kraft November Kit projects

Hi ladies,

First of all I would like to thank everyone who took the time to leave me a comment on my previous post. I did me the world of good knowing that you all care and wish me well. I'm happy to report I'm feeling back to my old self again, so much so that it amazes me how quickly a person can recover from surgery these days ... Of course, it does have its downsides ... I have to start doing the work around the house (which hubby took care of till now...) and the ironing (which my mom took care of) again, not exactly jumping up and down about that!!! It does however also mean I can get back to my scrapping, and boy did I miss that!!! I've discovered I'm seriously addicted, now why that should come as a surprise, I have no idea, but it did. It's hard not being able to do something you love ...

Okay, so I would like to show you some more LO's I finished with the Kreatorville Kraft November Kit. This one you've already seen:

Here are two more I haven't shared with you yet:

This gorgeous guy is my husband. This pic was taken quite a few years ago (in Crete), but though obviously he has aged he still looks pretty much the same now ... lucky me right LOL?!!! It took me some time to find the right title for this LO, because every time I looked at this pic, all i could think was "yummy" LOL, which I didn't think was the greatest title ever. But upon hearing the song "my man is a sweet man, ...", I knew I had found my title/journaling! Apart from the embroidery floss and inks, I only used kit products for this LO.

This LO is about my youngest daughter Christina doing so well with her reading. She's ahead of her age as far as her reading skills are concerned, which of course makes me proud but releaved as well. My friend's kids have a reading disability, and the amount of work spent on that problem is enormous, so I'm thankful that for my kids it all goes so easily...

The journaling reads:
"Christina is in the first grade now (10/18/2008), and with learning how to read a whole new world is opening up for her. Just a few months into the first grade, she has already obtained her AVI level 5 ... we're so proud!"

Again, apart from the spray paints and embroidery floss, all products used in this LO are from the November Kit. I tell you, this kit seems to give and give and give ... I still have plenty of material left to make additional LO's, so there's still more to come!

I already told you Christina made the Kreatorville Krafts design team as well, and here's her very first LO (8x8) with the November Kit:

The title on this LO was made by Keandra (and reads "A walk with Vita", which is our dog), and is an example of what can be bought in her etsy shop, go and check it out!
I know, it looks like something I could have made, but I swear I had absolutely nothing to say about this LO (though I tried LOL, believe me, I tried ...). She had seen me working with the spray paint and of course wanted to try this herself. She had seen me cutting out the little dear and mushrooms, so she copied that as well ... I don't mind though, it's fun to see how she takes some of my ideas and makes them her own. The thing that's most remarkable to me though is that I didn't do one thing to help, not one! She even did the stitching all on her own, even putting the thread in the eye of the needle ... This girl amazes me. She's my youngest, but you wouldn't think so when watching her...

Of course being their mom I think all of my kids have unique qualities LOL. Take Chloë for example, she turned nine on the twentieth this month, the same day I had my surgery. Because of the surgery, we had to cancel all of her birthday plans, like the traditional "birthday breakfast in bed", the choosing what to eat for dinner and the family birthday party, which had been scheduled for the day after the surgery... She didn't mind though, she didn't want to have her party without me there. She even waited with opening her presents. Normally she got to open them on the morning of her birthday, but she took them with her to the hospital, so I would be present when she opened them ... how wonderful is that for a nine-year-old! This year she didn't want a "kids-party", she wanted to go climbing with her dad, just the two of them. I'll leave you with a pic of her goofing around. Good thing I wasn't there, my heart would have stopped LOL.

Till next time,
Love xxx Peggy

Goed om te horen dat je je alweer zoveel beter voelt, alleen jammer dat je dan weer in je huishouden moet beginnen!! :( Gave foto, als die van mij indersteboven aan een klimwand hingen zou ik ook wel even moeten slikken ja!!

    Gorgeous work with the kit - your personal style keeps getting stronger and stronger - looks wonderful with the artistic edge emerging!

  5. Ha fijn dat het al weer zo goed gaat met je! Tja, de was en de strijk....niet echt het allereerste waar je aan beginnen wilt als je je weer wat beter voelt, lol. Ja, en dat scrappen he, wat kun je dat missen he? Ik moet gewoon iedere dag even 'iets' doen, heb het gewoon nodig, even creatief zijn.
    Ja, die layouts van jou zijn weer helemaal top! Zoveel originele ideeen, zoals met de letters op de layout over Christina! Zo gaaf!!
    Over CHristina gesproken: dat is echt een natuurtalentje zeg! Wat een leuke layout! En wat knap van moeders dat ze zich er niet mee bemoeid heeft, hahaha..
    Jouw ziekenhuisopname heeft vast veel impact gehad op de kinderen, he? Ik kan me nog herinneren dat mijn kids helemaal van slag waren. Wat lief van je dochter om de verjaardagscadeautjes samen met jou te willen uitpakken. Goh..
    Peggy, ik ben hartstikke blij dat je er weer bent!!


  6. Hi sweetie! I'm so glad to hear that you're doing so well and getting back on your feet. You're right about the housework/ironing part not being so great but I bet you'll take that over the pain any day right? ;)

    The new layouts are just amazing. You always do such beautiful pages! Great job, my friend...

    Christina's page is also great! She's so much like you... :)

    - April

Prachtige layouts, zowel van jou als van je dochter! Ennuuuhhh, terwijl je strijkt kun je heeeel goed nieuwe layouts/ideeen bedenken hoor! (Wel je strijkijzer blijven bewegen en op tijd optillen!)

  9. So glad to have chanced upon your blog Peggy, your work is SO COOL !!

  10. So glad to hear you're doing better! I just love your LOs to pieces! And that last photo is very, very cool.

  11. Oh Peggy...ik heb zo vaak geprobeerd om en berichtje achter te laten voor je,maar op de een of andere manier lukte het steeds niet,ik werd steeds van je blog gegooid!
    Ik heb wel aan je gedacht!
    Nou ja...eindelijk dan toch!Wat vreselijk van je galstenen zeg...erg pijnlijk,mijn moeder had het jaren geleden en ik was toen bij haar,zo erg om te zien dat iemand zoveel pijn heeft.Zo blij dat je je weer beter voelt nu!!
    En wat een prachtige layouts heb je weer gemaakt!
    Je dochter is echt heel erg talentvol!!Nat als moeders ;)
    Heel erg bedankt voor je lieve comentaartjes op mijn blog!En ik ben heel erg benieuwd naar jouw GDT bij the Next step...van harte hoor!!
    Super leuk hé!
    Nou doe het rustig aan,vooral met de strijk en de was...het loopt niet weg ;) jammer genoeg!

  12. I looovveeee that first layout called "one day", it's amazing!!! They are all awesome but that one is my fave! That rock climbing pick is super fabulous also. I just saw you said something about surgery and I was like OMG, what have I missed??? I'm off to check your previous post and I hope you are feeling better!!!

  13. Oh thanks Peggy. Unlike my son, who wsa a planned baby and took nearly 5 years to achieve this one was a huge surprise. I have kinda dropped out of blogland and the scrap world lately, as I feel so awful. Im only getting my DT pages finished and they even take all week. I hope it gets better soon, I miss seeing everyone work. I love the kits too, Ive been eyeing everyone work and waiting to see the next reveal. Im hoping to get in one those after the holidays are gone.

  14. Hi Peggy. so glad to hear from you..I haven't been blog hopping much, I'm happy to read you are on the mend. I had a friend with kidney stones and she had similar pain. You are creating some awesome layouts, as usual. =) Hope you get the tree up and enjoy. Have you ever heard the Time Life collection of Christmas music? lots of variety.
    Take care,

  15. your LOs are amazingly gorgeous. i always love your title work!!!! :)

    hope you are doing well!
