Summer update

I am officially (old) 27 years young :) It was my birthday the 18th of July and i had a fun celebration with family and cake.On the Saturday after that i went to see Mari in Amsterdam and of course we did some Primark shopping as usual.This week i went to the movies with the kids to see Monsters University,fun!!I can really recommend this movie.We enjoyed the HOT weather in the tub and the kids played outside.I however spent my time inside...creating!Bought myself a daylight lamp,so now i can scrapbook again at night.

I played along with OLW and the word this time is Fierce.I don't really think i am one of those persons that is really Fierce...I think i'm a pretty strong woman, but i can be a real scaredy-cat too sometimes!So i decided to use the pictures of my boy's rollerskating for the first time.Ow my...this was fun!(Evil grin)Julian had fun and was doing alright,but Maxim was not that amused!He kept falling on his bottom and was getting really mad and frustrated.Do not touch the bottom...sensitive spot.But he is like me and when he want something...well...he won't stop until he get's it right.And after some practice he was doing alright!The encouragement from his brother and me definitely helped him! :)

Be sure to play along,these ladies are really inspiring!Especially wanted to play after reading Revlie's story,wow she really is one of those Fierce woman!

I played along with the Studio Calico challenge to use many or little embellishments on your layout.I dug op some fun embellishments i had laying around forever.Like the cut out pink label from a shower gel package.The green circle,rope,die-cuts,Prima flower and more.The layouts tells the story about the day my bff and i were going to go shopping here in Tilburg, but it was so warm i had to home and change before i was going to pick her up from the station.Arriving there my bff was dressed up in jeans and blazer,she is a die-hard!So i had two outfits of the day :)


Finally i created this layout about the flowers i got from my mom for fathers day.Really nice gift which meant a lot to me.Being a single parent, day's like that can be hard.But the flowers were a reminder that i get to be both parents,which is a blessing not a curse. <3>

 The other day i was playing with some Sun flare on my balcony.Okay the pictures are probably not perfect,and no i am not a professional photographer...but i really like this technique and this picture!

I have some great models here at home who are happy to pose for mommy. Even though i end up with silly faces,big nose holes etc.
So how is your Summer going?We are going to the fair this weekend!Happy Scrapping :)
