Geplaatst door Melanie op 11:17 AM 5 reacties
Some more Layouts to share, and a freebie!!!!!! I´ve been using some of my Quickpages, adapting them a bit with my own stuff for some quick scrapping, I have so many pictures to scrap, and adding every week, I can´t keep up!!!!! If anyone likes the worart of happy baby, let me know, and I´ll share it in my next post. Also thanks to everyone for your sweet comments on my scripture wordart!!!!

My son at 3 months old with one of our friends:

Quickpage by Ashallee Wall:
Fonts: Stencil, Harrison & the King&Queen font from
I used a brush from a-dozi to erase a bit from the stencil font for a nicer look

My son with his new shoes we brought from holland, they were really cheap, but so cool, and he´s making a lot of succes with them here!!! The pics show him using them the first time, he doesn´t really like to wear shoes, as usually around the house he´s barefoot, as it is 30 degrees here the year around!!!

The next 2 layouts were a request from a friend who´s a missionary in the netherlands antills, I´ve made some LO´s for her before. They had 2 volunteers from holland leaving and she asked me to make a goodbye presents, she send me the pics and this is what I made of it. Both have a scripture on it. "Landhuis Mount Pleasant" is the name of the house, and I cut it from a picture, the "kinderdorp Hebron" I also cut from a picture and put it on a tag. Think it turned out well, made it in 8,5x11 for easier printing and framing. If anyone is interested I could make them into templates, let me know!!!!

CT-contest and wordart freebie

Geplaatst door Melanie op 1:53 PM 5 reacties
This is my entry for the CT-contest going on on flergs blog, I´m so in love with her stuff, and her LO are a great inspiration, so I had to participate!!!!! She offered the cutest mini-page kit on her blog to play with, I took a look at the comments section and there´s so many wonderful LO´s participating!!!! It took the whole week to get it just the way I wanted it to be. The subject was: What brings you delight? Well, what brings me most delight is simply being with my family! So I picked my favourite family picture of october last year. Also the assignment was to be creative using limited suplies, so I used the 2 frames and used them on top of each other, loosely on top of the pic, the swirls I cut up and used diferently, I clipped a paper on the tag to fit the rest, I used a background to mat the pic and the overlay on the mat. I really like the result. Oh, and the verse on the rame says: "The Lord your God will be with you, He is mighty to save, He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." (Zepheniah 3:17) That´s my prayer for my family, that He´ll take as much delight in my family as me! I made this verse into a little wordart for you to download below, wanted to use it with this page but it did not really fit with the rest of it. (Only this time I uploaded the full size LO, hope it won´t give any problems, maybe you´ll need a bit of patience for the LO to load.....if it gives any problems please let me know!)

strawberry delight mini kit: papers, flower, frames, swirl and glitter overlay
deacon´s closet sampler: tag (paper of strawberrykit clipped on it) and cardboard stars, and I cut our the staple from the tag
rough and tumble add-on: backside of staple

Here´s the wordart.

Some LO´s for the CT!!!! Tina Prima Ballerina

Geplaatst door Melanie op 12:33 PM 1 reacties
Finally some more LO for the CT, was about time!!!! My friend asked me to make make a page of each of her daughters as a birthdaypresent for their father, they work as missionaries in Curação, and I thought this was such a great idea, she send me some beautiful pictures and I used Cens´Stuff Tina Prima Ballerina Paper Pack and Element Pack to make both of the pages. I used the same set-up for both pages, just changed everything around a bit, using a diferent color but from the same kit so they would fit perfectly together, I made the pages rectangle as this would be easier for her to print and frame the pages!!! This is also my participation for the Love is.... challenge at Cen´s blog, just take a look, she´s having a challenge every Monday with some great goodies to win, I don´t want to miss out on those!!!!!! (The wordart on both is from Simply Sarah Designs.)

For this page I used a freebie of Cens´stuff Puppy Love.
My husband got a pitbull puppy from somebody, he brought it home and this small he´s such a cutie, but thinking of him growing up, with Efraim, hmmm, I really love dogs, but I just don´t trust this race, seen to much tv stories, and my guess is they are not prohibited in soem countries for no reason.............hmmmm but he´s IS cute, I agree on that!!!!
