Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!! I know I have!! Yesterday, I attended a fab workshop over at SBN, I'll show you the pics later (have to add some finishing touches), but here's a sneak peak of what we've been doing:
And then last Wednesday it was time for my layout over at LSOS. As Tanya is so incredibly busy these days, she asked Mieke and me to look after her blog for the time being. And of course we said yes! That means that every second week I have to write the post and make sure the sketch and everyone's layout is uploaded. This week Pearl found us such a wonderful Guest Designer: Jing-Jing Nickel, check out the LSOS blog to see what she (and the DT) made of the sketch!!
Okay here they are, my layout (about fall being my favorite season) and the sketch:
Now if you feel like scrapping after seeing this sketch, don't forget to upload your creation in the LSOS gallery and maybe you'll win some of Tanya Leigh Design products!!!

And this is the sketch. The twist this week is to use chipboard...well I can do that (as I have boxes full of them)!!
When I came home Sunday, this is what I saw: 2 of my kids with crutches (that is soccer for you....), the third one would have loved to have crutches too...
And don't forget my give-away!! You have until the end of September to become a follower to win this vintage give-away!! Read the details here!
Have a nice day everyone and thanks for your wonderful comments again and again!!

I really love this season; look how beautiful nature is right now:
And of course Mieke couldn't resist photographing these horses....
And yes, I did create a few layouts too this weekend, here's one I did for a challenge on WijDUS:
Used my September Nook kit, don't you just love these Pink Paislee goodies???

Yeah! Thanks to the challenge at the AC blog I finally scapped Mats' first day at school!! (only 10 months late). Recently I bought these new AC pp "blue skies"; I adore these colours! and with sketch #37 from 52 sketches I created this layout:
I used the papers, stamps, ribbon (with trees) and button from American Crafts "blue skies", the pp used for the journaling is AC "teen" and the green words in the title are Thickers from AC. Furthermore I used "I love school" chipboard stickers from Imaginisce, a Maya Road sheer, different ribbons and staples.
And here's the sketch:

"mijnheer Krabs" kan natuurlijk niet ontbreken!
No Sponge Bob, without Mr Crabs (is that his name in the US?)
En hier is de schets waarop de layout is gebaseerd:
And this is the sketch it's based upon: (#35)
Mats was om 12 uur al vrij maar had een vriendje te spelen en daardoor kon ik heerlijk een uurtje scrappen!
Mats had his bff over to play and that meant some scrappy time for me! Yeah!
En dan nog een klein detail van vandaag dat wat minder leuk was....om een uur of 4 kwam ook Manon thuis en ontdekte bij het uitpakken van haar fietstassen dat haar tas met spiksplinternieuwe sportschoenen op school gestolen is!! Aangezien ze toch al 8 dagen op deze school zit, lijkt het erop dat dit een duur jaar gaat worden! Grrrr! (en ja, stom, ze had de schoenen per ongeluk in de tas laten zitten....)And then around 4pm Manon arrived home and told us her brand new shoes for her sports class in school have been stolen! As she attends this school for about 8 days now, I expect this is going to be a very expensive year!!!

And as the layout is about me I had to add some owls. I'm not only addicted to Latte, but to owls too! (I seem to be doing a lot of sketches these days....have to find me another kind of challenge too!)

This is the sketch:
And this is the layout I made:
I can't help it... my pages just don't feel finished if I haven't stitched on them! So lots of machine stitching (again) and I finally got to use my Bazzill stitch template, love it!

Used "Farmers Market" papers (I love the red/white/blue colours) with the matching stickers.
If you want to see what the other DT members did have a look at the SK blog and don't forget to leave them some love!
See you soon and TFL! Monique

You had to create a layout using:
- paper strips
- something gold
- the colours aqua/pink/purple and cream (=main colour)
and you could choose to use this sketch:
I used three Sassafras Lass pp strips & chipboard and cardstock stickers & a card & a flower, rig rag pp from MM, felt and buttons from Creative Café, Prima flower, gold star from a sheet of AC Thickers, Autumn Leaves swirl stamps, 2 pins, and some bling.
You have to look very good to discover my golden element on the page:
And don't forget: you've still got time to enter in my own give-away!!! Look here for details!
