Geplaatst door Melanie op 9:19 AM 2 reacties
I have been busy this week and done some scrapping!!!!! I finally finished the last few pages of my son´t first year book (about time, as in June he´s turning 2!!!). Most part I already did hybrid, but I still had some digital pics left and have used some quicpages for that. There are so many great quickpages around, why not use them, and be done quick and get on with some more scrapping right? I was so sad to have missed the chat with June at SDK this week, it was on creating papers, but I did get the donwloads from the thread at the forum and started designing a bit, I´m pretty satisfied with the result. Have used some CU overlays I had downloaded already and used the colourscheme for June challenge this week. So there are 2 paperpack to download for you!!!!!!

This is June´s latest kit Monet´s garden, available here for only 2,25$ as it´s still 40% off!!!!!!
Here´s the LO I made with it, showing a little bouquet my husband surprised me with, he had put together himself, how sweet is that!?
Template is from the forum of for the 12-30 april template challenge
Wordart is by Dahlia Co from
The kit is made by June Schutrups from Cen´s Stuff called Monet´s garden

Look at this winner:

I won I won I won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Icouldn´t believe it when Bannerwoman PMd me that I had won the colourscheme contest she had on digishoptalk. Wednesday after a long day working in the favela I chekcked my mailbow and saw the add in her newsletter, so I thought why not give this challenge a try, I had never done it before, so I was very pleased with 20$ on my paypal. This was actually the first time ever I have money on my paypal hehe!!!! So I went shopping right away on Thursday, how much fun!!!! Untill now I´ve only worked with freebies and June´s stuff for the CT!!!! I already knew what would be the first thing I´d buy, I´d taken a look at it the day before, I bought KimB´s grabbag, well worth the money I can tell you that!!!!

Here are some of the quickpages I used. The first to I got from They are made with her Unda Da Sea kit, just perfect for these pics. The first one was made by jeannete and the 2d by Kim herself!

The next 2 quickpage are a totally diferent style, made with kits from The first one using Divine Turquiose Kit. The second one using Sunshinedaze kit.

Finally we´re getting to the paperpacks. It is the first time I made some papers, using the tips and links from June Tuesday chat. Hope you like them, I´de love to see it if you make any LO using the papers, and any comments, suggestions, help is welcome!!!!!!!! You can´t really see in the previes, but both have a flower kind of texture....

It´s been ages since I blogged for the last time, almost 2 months!!!!!! And my computer was just broken down for 2 weeks so no scrapping, I found out that teher were a bunch of LOs that I didn´t post yet, including 2 for the CT team, using the faded beauty kit and grafity kit both from June Schutrups. You can find the link under the LO´s. Most of the LO´s were for challneges as well, but I don´t even remember which, but for sure it were challenges at and, probably for template challenges!!!!! Feel free to leave a comment!
2006 was not an easy year for us, my brother died, we left the project we were working at, but in this same year God put Efraim in our family at the perfect timing! He always made us laugh and forget the bad things, he´ll always be our joy!
