LO record!!!!

Geplaatst door Melanie op 10:39 AM 3 reacties
Can´t believe it how many LO´s I did this week, I guess it´s because I´m Home Alone this week, as my husband is travelling with some people of the base to do evangelism at a huge catholic event, about 10 hours drive from here. So I had to distract myself a bit............ Take a look at what I´ve done: (I´m almost getting to my 50th LO) I have 48 so far in my digitalfreebies gallery.

These pictures were taken on a beautiful Sunday afternoon when my husband wanted to take a look at a second hand car´s show, (we really need another car, ours is getting too small and old…) and I decided to come along, it was on the parkingplace of the shoppingmall, so afterwards we had some great time walking through the shopping and to stop by SubWay to eat a great sandwich, we really had some great quality-family time!!!!

I made a card for my husband before he travelled for a couple of days with our most recent familypicture and I liked it so much I also made one with a calendar to send to my friends and family at the end of the year: Both are cardsize so 4x6 inches.

Be sure to take a look as well at June´s blog, she is offering a great freebie: a quickpage, a template AND a page-kit, how great is that? Also I was happily surprised to see a LO someone sent to her using my little dude quickpage freebie I posted last week! Also there´s some freebies on fellow CT member Nexa´s blog. Maybe I´ll get to post another freebie this week!!!!

New LO of our purrfect streetcat!!!

Geplaatst door Melanie op 6:53 PM 1 reacties
So we did not get to travel as we missed our flight, read the whole story here (just scroll down for the English version). Yestardy I went back to work in the favela (slum) again, read about that here. So my friend Els is really good at keeping her blog updated about the work we do here, and she just put up a message about my work with the pregnant teenagers, also it has some great pictures and stories of the work my husband does at the restoration farm and in the youth prisons, check it out here.
So now let´s get back to scrapping. Not only do we work woth streetkids, we also have a streetcat!!!! We found him on the street when he was only about 2 days old, left by his mom, so we decided to take him home (even though I don´t really like cats.....) Anyway, we didn´t think he´d survive, he was so tiny and we had to feed him with a seringe and later with a little bottle, but he did survive!!!! This page I made for the second part of the Template Challenge of October at Digital Freebies.com. The template is courtesy from Eva Kipler, and the kit is by Cens´stuff available here at SDK

So happy scrapping for everyone, see you next time!!!!!

Hello, so this is just a very quick message before I´m off to the SouthEast of Brazil to visit my mother-in-law who has been quite ill the past few weeks/months, and she hasn´t even seen here first and only grandchild yet. So we were really blessed with this friend who blessed us with the tickets to be able to go there!!!!! ´It will be good to get back to Belo Horizonte where we met and got married, than we´re off to the country, Bela Vista de Minas!!!!! So here´s a LO I made this week, and also I´m adding a freebie.

Finished 2 LO´s finally....

Geplaatst door Melanie op 9:20 PM 1 reacties

It took me ages to get these 2 layouts finished, I feel sometimes I spend more time downloading goodies than actually scrapping a page..... I found this really cool site with some awesome freebies: http://scrapkut.blogspot.com/. Check it out. So here are my LO´s (scroll down for credits):

So I´m not sure how much I´ll be scrapping this week, as Saterday we´re traveling to the SoutEast fo Brazil to visit my mother-in-law, she´s never even seen Efraim, and he´s 16 months old already! We had been praying for this as we did not have the money for the tickets (we work as missionaries on a voluntary-basis, so we depend on offerings), and God answered our prayer withinn 24 hours through a friend whoe wanted to blessed us. And we didn´t even ask or told anyone about our desire, how cool is that?

Yesterday we went to the favela (slum)again where we´re starting a work for pregnant women there, it´s a diferent world out there. We talked to this lady who had just lost her baby, she was 30 weeks pregnant, she was so sad, and amazing how much this happens here, I´ve been only 3 times so far and already met 2 gilrs who lost at 7-8 months pregnancy. Often they still use drugs, also there´s a lot of violence. This lady we met yesterday told us she´d already been through 6 abortions (which is illegal in brazil), 4 by taking some medicine and 2 using an iron!!!! There´s so much work to be done here!!!!

My first post!!!!!!

Geplaatst door Melanie op 5:58 PM 7 reacties
Wow, can´t believe it, now I´m a digi-scrapping-blogger as well!!!!!! I did not want to start one at first, as I almost can´t even keep up with our personal blog, but now I´m part of a creative team, I felt I had to start one as well, so this is my first official post!!!!!! Maybe I´ll put some freebies on here as well. I´m not designing, but I love making quickpages, so who knows!!!!!! In the slideshow you can see all my LO´s but here I´ll show the LO´s I´ve been making as part of the CT:, and this way I can also introduce my family:
This page was made with Cens´
Victorian Memories. I got married to my husband Jander on May 3d 2003, I´m Dutch and he´s Brazilian, so we actually had 2 weddings, one in each country, this picture was taken in Brazil!!!!
You can find this kit here.

Last year our son was born, he´s been with us since he was only 2 days old as we adopted him. Isn´t he the cutest boy you´ve ever seen? If you receive the newsletter of SDK you might have seen this LO as it was featured in the newsletter of this month, isn´t that cool? Check out the newsletter here. (It has a freebie as well!)

Both pages were made with Little Dude, first one with the freebie available here (you´ll find many other awesome freebies here!!!) and the second one with the complete kit available here.

I really wanted to make something with this gorgeous kit by June, but seen the fact I don´t have a little girl walking around here, I used a picture of the daughter of our friends who live in England, Gabi is such a cutie! Get this kit here:

And finally a freebie I had made a time ago, it was posted on Cens´ blog, that was my first-ever quickpage and freebie and I was surprised to see today I had 590 downloads on it, not too bad ha? If you want to you can still grab it here:
Pirates Treasures Kit available here
So that´s it for now, hope you enjoyed!!!!!! Speak soon!!!!
