New layout!

Op het forum van Stampin' Scrap stond een nieuwe challenge van Yvette: je moest een layout maken met vrolijke kleuren, een "layer" van tenminste 5 lagen, een "critter" (blijkbaar een beestje) en een boom. Nou ben ik gek op challenges en ook op "layers", dus deed ik graag mee. Dit is het geworden:

This is the layout I created for Yvette's "layers, layers, layers" challenge on the Stampin' Scrap forum. You had to create a layout using: layers (at least 5), summery colours, a tree and a critter. I had these photos printed and wanted to scrap them for ages! I'm so glad that I finally did just that!

Used the new American Crafts pp "Craft Fair".

Furthermore, I received another award from Vicki!

In getting this award there are some rules: I have to say one nice thing about the man in my life. Well that is not too difficult: Patrick is the most patient and caring man in the world and just "gets" me (he kind of understands all my do's and don'ts) and besides this he's the perfect father to our children, I couldn't wish for a better man! Thanks Pat!

And now I have to list six ways I measure my success in my life. This, I find much more difficult, because how do you measure success?? and when you asked me this question 10 years ago, the answer would have been totally different, but I'll give it a shot: being happy, being healthy, having a fab husband and raising happy children, having wonderful friends, being able to have a job (or at the moment, being able not to have work) and last but not least being able to be busy with my hobbies (scrapping, reading, walking, dancing).

I have to pass this award on and I choose: Mieke!!

Thanks for reading my post and please feel free to comment on it!


  1. Awesome layout! Love it! I love the colors and the fun feel.

    I also love the new blog look :)

  2. Wat lief, dank je wel! Leuke layout hoor, hoe krijg je het weer voor elkaar met de boom en huisjes! Zo leuk.

  3. Love it!!! And you have lots of "critters" on it. Really liking your new blog background too especially that owl that sits on his branch! LOL

  4. Your new blog background is a real hit...LOVE it ;-) Your layout is also lovely & fun too - you have a really great feel for placement & juxta-position. Your LSOS layout is also are VERY talented!!! As for the bag post, just leave it if you don't want to do it. I think it is so interesting that you don't carry one. Just knowing that reveals how different it must be for you where you live compared to here ;-)

  5. Monique, what a cool layout! Have never seen anyone use that dark green as a background before - I love it!

    I thought of you yesterday. Our friends' kids' guinea pig died He lived outside, maybe that has a big effect on their longevity? ;)
