Two layouts and hot weather

I love summer weather but today it has been a bit too much. Right now (at 8 pm) it is still 35 degrees celcius (95F) outside and it does not seem to cool down at all. Out attic (where I am sitting roght now) is unbelievably hot. So again: This is going to be a short post.

This afternoon the Netherlands soccer team beat Brazil and made it to the semi finals of the World Cup. Go Holland!
I was able two make two layouts this week. One of Jorams first day in grade 3 and the other one from Sinterklaas 2009. Sinterklaas is a typical Dutch tradition which takes place on December 5th. In general you can sort of compare it to Santa. If you want to read more about it in English: HERE's the Wikpedia link.
On both layouts title and joiurnaling are in Dutch.

First day of third grade layout:

Patternedpaper: Basic Grey
Buttons: Basic Grey
Misc: Embroidery thread

The word 'groep' was cut with my Silhouette. Except for the 'o', which is a Basic Grey sticker

The Sinterklaas layout:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: DCWV
Chipboard: Maya Road
Flowers: Hero Arts
Jouranling spot: Making Memories
Felt mat: Prima Marketing
Misc: Buttons, bling
And again: The title was cut with the Silhouette


  1. Fantastic layouts Debby. Boy it is awful hot there. So far our summer has been cool and rainy. I hope the nice weather arrives soon but sure don't want the heat that you have had.

  3. Hoi Debby,
