Okay, just wanted to share some LO´s I´ve been doing this week.....

We went to the centre of Fortaleza to do some Christmas shopping, and took some pictures with the beautiful decorations there. The huge tree is made out of hammocks, very creative!

Journaling reads:
You are a precious gift, a bright blessing from God,
a masterpiece fresh from the wheel of the Master Potter.
With joy we celebrate you,
with confidence we entrust you into God’s constant loving care,
and with faith we cling to God’s wise and wonderful plan for one and only you.
Children are a gift from God. PSALM 127:3 TLB
(Source:www.Daysprings.com)

When we were in Belo Horizonte, we met our friends Miia from Finland, and Nury from Uruguay. Both of them had a baby this year, so Efraim had 2 little friends to play with, and because he´s the oldest he thought he´d boss everyone around, stealing toys etc.

Last 2 pages of Animal Farm BragBook

Geplaatst door Melanie op 6:38 PM 3 reacties
Here it finally is, it was finished wednesday, but I just couldn´t get it uploaded. I´m not sure if it´s my internetconnection , or 4 shared itself, I wanted to post this before the weekend, for some last minute-christmas scrapping pleasure!!!!! I got so frustrated, yesterday when I went to sleep I gave it a last chance, my husband would turn off the computer later, and to my delight this morning it was uploaded. It´s not even 7 am here, as my beloved son decided to wake up at 6, we´ll leave in a bit though to do some christmas shopping........ Also I managed to get my calender ready, I´ll try to get it printed and binded today!!!!

Creative Christmas Ideas and calender

Geplaatst door Melanie op 6:39 AM 1 reacties
Doesn´t this wreath look so nice???? I saw it in the two-peas-in-a-bucket newsletter today and I just love it, I have a collection of grocery bags here (as here in Brazil they don´t seem to know regular shopping bags, and they look to you us as if we´re crazy when we bring our huge Dutch shopping bags to the supermarket!), so I´m definitely going to make one myself today!!!! You can find the instructions here

So I wanted to back up my downloads, and found out that I had about 13 giga, not even counting my kits of cen´s stuff and the commercial and freebie-designing stuff!!!!!! So I decided to do a big clean up, as when I started DS, I downloaded everything I saw, now I know more what style I like. So I threw out a total of 4 giga!!!!!! I have one DVD now full of only papers (4,5 GB)!!!!! I just couldn´t believe it!!!!!

Also wanted to share 3 more calender pages I made yesterdaynight

Bragbook page 1-8 now in .png and .zip( I was so stupid)

Geplaatst door Melanie op 9:08 AM 6 reacties
I am so stupid, I just found out that I uploaded my bragbookpages as .psp files instead of .png!!!???? Can´t believ it, I found out as I made page 8 today and found it weird that the .rar was only 2000 something kb, while the others were over 6 or 7.00. Anyway, I decided to put the pages 1-8 that I made all in one file, this time a .zip file, hope that is okay with you. If anyone
has any trouble, or finds an other mistake, or prefers .rar please please please let me know!!!!!!!!!! I´m taking down the other download links and will refer to this post.... Page 9 and 10 will be posted soon as well!!!!!

Freebie Animal Farm Bragbookpage part 5 of 10!!!!

Geplaatst door Melanie op 11:58 AM 0 reacties
I am always late for the scraplift challenge at digitalfreebies, also today I made it last minute, and since it had a lot of pictures (why didn´t I choose a simpler one??!!) my computer got annoyingly slow....... but Jody´s comment on yesterday´s post really made my day, so I decided to post right away another page, and I´ll do my best to get all 10 pages up in time for Christmas presents!!!!!

We had such a great day in the country of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Visiting my husbands familt, we encountered a totally diferent reality. The pictures show the house, inside and outside, the carriage, the plants, my husband with the pots and pans that were shiny as a mirror, and my mother in law who was having the day of her life!!!

The first LO is my own creation, for the scraplift challenge. Just read the whole message to find the freebies in the end!
Visiting my husbands aunt, we had a great time, by husband and his cousin spent a lot of time listening to music and creating a CD. Don´t they look alike?

So now let´s get to the freebie!!!!! June from Cen´s stuff makes some great stuff, and lots of freebies. The first freebie I downloaded was Animal Farm, a complete kit (loaded!!!), every day she shared a part (it´s still available, just look on her blog I think it was from August: http://censloft.blogspot.com/ ). I was just beginning with digital scrapbooking and immediately fell in love with her stuff as it was a bit diferent than the rest I´d seen so far. I made a LO, send it to her and I felt very loved by her sweet and enthusiastic comments, all of this led to me being part of her CT now!!!!!!! So I wanted to give you something for Christmas, I´ll be sharing some bragbookpages made with the same kit (I´ve used some elements of other freebies, and some PSP shapes and tubes). So come back, collect all the pages and you can make your own album to give away as a present for christmas, how about that? I´ll be giving away 10 pages, I´ve already made 7 so far...... be sure to come back and don´t forget to leave some love!!!!!!!
