1.If you could have £100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?I think emellishments,because i will buy the pp anyway :)
2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons, which would you choose?Stamps!I always struggle with rub-ons!Although since i discovered the Hambly rub-ons its going better.

Yay for photoswaps!

Sometimes it seems like everybody is doing photoswaps...But who's to blame,they are so much fun!And i think it's a great way to capture your friendship.So me and my friend Lindsay done this photoswap and i finally finished her layout yesterday.I took me some time because i first had to finish some asignments.
I am so thankful that scrapbooking is going great at the moment.You know when layouts just come together by it self,and you dont have to think (for hours) of what to put where...The weather is really terrible at the moment,so that means more scrapping,yay!Just ordered some new pictures so i am happy.

I also made a layout for the OLW believe.These challenges are really kicking up my mojo!So if you lost your mojo,try some of these challenges...The layout is about my crazy brother.We are always having a blast together.Happy memories :D

BamPop asked me if they could put 2 of my layouts in their gallery.How cool is that?I am a huge BamPop fan,so this means the world to me!!Yay for BamPop!BTW In my last post i showed a sneak from the new BamPop stamps,unfortunately they're not mine.(jet)

Okay i need some info about scanners...Which one do you girls recommend?It needs to be good for photos and layouts,but doesnt doesn't need to be A3.Thanks in Advance

So a lot of people are going to the Dutch SIStv crop,and i think it's going to be so much fun!I love little events like this.Most of the time when you go to workshops and crops you get a chance to make some new friends and see some old friends.So if you havn't signed up jet,please do so!We are going to have fun!Ow and don't forget to bring your big sunglasses for some Diva shot's :D

Okay time to scrap!Happy scrapping,Love Fauve

Okay not too much but hey,i'm a busy girl :) The weather is perfect now a days and i spend most of my days outside with the kids.Julian started preschool last week and he really loved it!And i like to have some free (scrap) time.Too bad their having vacation this week,but he will start on Tuesday again.He has a really relaxed class,with kids who likes to puzzle and read.My boy is completely the opposite of that...This is going to be fun :S
I made this layout for challenge on SIStv,where i had to scraplift one of my own layouts.I used the layout Nobody puts baby in the corner.Seriously i am having fun with that embossed paper :)
And i also made a layout just for me...These papers are from Brazil,and are soooo yummy!Lucy gave them to me when she was here for Xtreme weekend.She is the best!!I will recieve my Lola and Riley goodies this week,can't wait!!But first i have to finish some new asignments.I recieved some really cool stuff for my new asignments,time to play!

No scrapping today...

This message is about sewing :) I have a sewingmachine...I have fabrics...Still i can't make anything besides baby sheets LOL I know i am a beginner but i would really like to make something cute on my sewing machine.So does any of you girls know something really simple to begin with??Or have a step by step tutorial?Any ideas are welcome!!

I recently bought these really adorable fabrics.I see a new addiction coming up...Don't you just love the pink cotton candy fabric??I have been wanting that fabric for sooo long!Thank god we have Ebay :D I know they are wayyy to childish and kitsch but what can i say?That's just my thing...
Hope to show some layouts soon!Happy scrapping

Nobody puts baby in the corner...

That's the name of my layout for the challenge blog scrapmojo.We had to use this title,and after i looked at my whole stash of alphabets i found some that fitted my picture.I kinda liked how it turned out.I used the backside of the Elsie embossed pp and seriously that opened the doors to scrap heaven for me...Way cooler then the front,i can tell you that :D And ofcourse i had to use my new BamPop stamps.Aren't they the cutest??Talking about cute,did you see the new BamPop chipboard??Gotta have!So i have another sneakpeek to show you from a layout for the upzoming SAZ.I don't think this sneak does my layout justice but okay...A sneak is to make people curious right?
Okay this MUST be the happiest baby ever!Seriously he is smiling all the time :)
(Sorry for the bad lightning)
Sorry but still more sneaks to come.I hope i can show more layouts soon!!Happy scrapping!

What a week!

This week really sucks!It all started last Saturday when i went to the playground with my mom,Jack and the children.We were having a great time untill a man decided to throw sand at two boys,while Julian was playing behind them.I got so mad,you can't even imagine!So there i was,my first time on this big playground yelling and screaming with tears rolling over my cheeks.Which was better because i would have killed the guy!What kind of parent throws with sand?You know when you get so mad out of frustration you start crying??I don't think these playground are ment for me...Well Julian had a great time anyway!Okay so on Monday my mom,the children and me wanted to go to the Efteling(themepark).So my mom gave me a call saying she already put the bikes outside(she lives 4 floors above me and got my keys)and she was ready to go.Right before she hung up she told me not to forget my bike key.Hmmm my bike key,havn't seen that one for a while...Well we still havn't found it!And my bike is locked outside around a pole,yay what a fun week!!So yesterday i emailed the store where i ordered my Bampop goodies because they didn't arrived jet.So it turned out my package got delivered on 4 October...But i havn't recieved anything,so i had to call the postoffice and make a claim.Bye bye goodies!!This morning i was reorganizing my wallet because i just bought an Airmiles card(finally!).And while i was looking at my cards i saw my identification card was missing!Is this serious??????Is someone pulling a trick on me or what??Can't believe it!I so hope someone will find it and put it in the mailbox.I lost it not too long ago and the price you have to pay for loosing it is no joke!!I knew this week was already going to be extremely busy but i didn't expect all this crap.Well the good thing is my Bampop goodies arrived!A neighbour 6 houses next to me,brought me my package yesterday.Which made me feel a bit better...And the other good thing is that Julian starts with pre-school next Tuesday,i am sooo excited about that one.He really enjoyed himself last time we went there to check it out.We have to go there tomorrow to bring the last papers.And he can see his group since he will be going on Tuesday morning and Friday afternoon.But i still havn't find my bike keys and my identification card,so this week still sucks!

Well enough for the complaining,here are some scrapbook related things!Some sneaks for the upcoming SAZ,be sure to pre-order it because they sell like hot cakes :D

And even though i have a huge deadline,i had to make this OLW layout.Not really special but i wanted to write down these feelings i have...These challenges are really good for your Mojo by the way!And talking about Mojo don't forget to check out the new challenge blog Scrap Mojo.My friends Micayla and Lindsay are both Designteam members there,how fun!

Okay i probably be back with some more sneaks,Happy Scrapping!
P.S.My thoughts are with Corinne,who got some really bad news today.Thinking about you!
