Back again with 3 LO´s

Geplaatst door Melanie op 3:59 PM 1 reacties
Hello!!!! I´m back again after a busy week of travelling, we drove over 600 kms. in 6 days with a 17 month old!!!!! That was certainly well worth a lot of pictures!!!!!!! I have so many pictures to scrap I´ll have to use some multi-photo templates!!!!!! Last week I was the chosen one to be scraplifted at and everybody did such a great job!!! I love that challenge! I finished 3 LO´s for 3 template challenges and the friday freebie challenge (I like to combine some challenges to make it more challenging!!!!!) I discovered some great challenges with great prizes at, many people of digitalfreebies over there as well ofcourse!!! So here they are:

These pictures show his grandmother of 82 years old who still washes clothes by hand, cleans the floor on her knees and also takes care of her granddaughter of 16, my husbands cousin. She was so happy to see us and meet her great-grandchild, and we were very grateful for this oportunity!

Also we visited some of his aunts and cousins together with his mom. they hadn´t seen each other in 6 years, they literraly live in the middel of nowhere, surrounded by mountains, their life is reflected on their faces, they immediately feel in love with our son (who wouldn´t??), and we were impressed by the hard working people that they are.

I made this quickpage with another great kit of Cens´Stuff available at SDK. (There´s a freebie of this kit on her blog as well!). I just made a page using some pictures I had of my friends daughter. (Seen the fact a picture of my little boy would not fit very well in this LO…..hahahahaha!!!!!) Isn´t she cute? She´s about the same age as my son, I´ve known my friend Corien since we were about 4 years old, and she lived just right across the street. And now I live in Brazil, and of all my old friends she´s still the one who lives the closets by as she and her husband, and 2 daughter work as missionaries at the Netherlands Antilles (Curação)!!!!!How funny is that? You can get this quickpage participating in the challenge for Digital Scrapbooking Day at Cens blog here. Keep an eye on her blog as she´s posting 6 challenges througout the day and you can win great freebies!
This page I made for my best friend Marga. She´s a single mom of this gorgeous boy called Munda. The pics were taken on her brothers wedding.
