10 years old: a tongue piercing or a Neocube????

Sometimes you just have the coolest photo's. This photo from DS Joram I took a few weeks ago while he was playing with his Neocube. A Neocube is a sort of a puzzle which has 216 (I think) vety strong tiny little magnets and you can make tons and tons of shapes with them. But Joram also found out that you can use them for other purposes: You can do faux piercings with them! And ofcourse he was more than willing to let me take a photo.
And it was one of those photo's I loved to scrap. I used this photo to do a challenge at Let's Scrap. The challenge was to do stitching on your LO's. It could be hand stitching, machine stitching and even faux stitching. For those who see my LO's on a regular base know that I {HEART} to sew on
my LO's, so this was a great challenge for me.I love how this LO turned out, I wanted it to be like Joram is, his own little self. A little different than others, but not too diufferent. This is what I came up with.

PP: Basic Grey, Bo Bunny, Lily Bee Design, Sassafras Lass (found some more Bungle Jungle, ha!)

Chipboard: Maya Road
Transparency: Creative Imaginations
Journaling spot: Making Memories
Rhinestones: Prima Marketing, Bazzill
Misc: sewing machine, staples, felt letters

My Silhouette machine; Playing with borders

One of the weekly challenges at Let's Scrap a couple of weeks ago was one with borders. With the border punches being the thing to have everybody came up with pretty cool LO's. I combined it with the borders I cut with my Silhouette machine. And I love how it turned out. I used ALL stash (WTG for me, ha!) LO's with all borders are a perfect way to get rid of some of your stash, trust me.

I wanted to place the photo more to the left but I had already adhered my borders and turning the page upside down did not work. so I am not to happy with the placement of the photo, but alas. The scanning cut a little piece of the top, but the punching on the top does look the same as on the bottom.

Other than that: LOVED this challenge, I had so much fun playing with all the borders and punches, all different scraps of paper. DD Jinte got a Little Tikes bathing suit last year from my MIL and it still fits. I think she is the cutest wearing it.

CS: Bazzill
PP: Rusty Pickle*, 7Gypsies, KI Memories, CM*, Doodlebug
Border punches: EK Success, Fiskars
Pens: Signo Uniball (white), Stabilo (turqoise)
Misc: Rhinestones

*: These companies do not have a website available or are out of business.

When I look at the photo on this LO I can't believe she is already turning two this Thursday. Unbelievable how time flies. Thanks for your visit, I am off to scrap, have a great week!

Card for teacher

On the day DS Joram's class was going on their field trip to Toverland his teacher announced she was pregnant. Besides his teacher she is also assigned to take care of the 'care' children such as the ones with dyslexia. So Joram, with his dyslexia, has more to do with her than just being a child in her class. But a pregnancy calls for a card. I had the cutest cutting file and I have been dying to make something with that. An image of a pregnant women with a heart in her belly. And I started cutting.............well, my Silhouette did ;) I love how it turned out. I used a Let's Scrap sketch as my inspiration.

Misc: Sequins

The sentiment says 'congrats' in Dutch and I made cut the letters with Cuttlebug dies.
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Sunday. We'll be spending most of it at home since it has been pooring rain ever since last night.

Fancy Pants challenge at Let's Scrap

I know, I should have updated my blog way sooner............... Everything just seems to be so busy. My DH broke one of his vertebrae falling of the attic in our garage, he was not allowed to do ANYTHING! Trust me, I felt really bad for him, but everything was on my shoulders and it sort of got to me.
This months challenge at Let's Scrap is one where you should use a Let's Scrap sketch and a Fancy Pants product. Since I am trying to use my stash and not buy as much anymore I really digged in my supplies and found some Fancy Pants papers and many many unopened packages of Fancy Pants rub-ons (shame shame shame). I did do my stash justice because I have already created two LO's with very old Fancy Pants lines.
If you still want to play along: You still have until the end of July to participate in this challenge and win the Beach Babe line from Fancy Pants.

This photo was taken in our zoo the other day. DD is so fond of the turtles and the fence is just low enough for her to almost be able to touch them. The DH of my DM just lifted her up and put her in there. The journaling basically says that.

The title is in Dutch and says: (almost) in the cage.
I even got to use some little pices of transparencies I still had in my stash. Geeh, I should have money left at the end of the month, ha!
