SNEAK AND TAG

I feel much better today... Thank GOD...
Yesterday evening I had so much inspiration to finish becky fleck's sketch... I mailed it to her today. She didn't mind it at all... Thank you Becky...
Here is the sneak peak... Ofcourse I used orange AND hambly LOL


I'm planning to clean my scrapcloset today and write my article for the Scrapstreet final round while I enjoy the beautiful sun outside... I just love it... the weather is just inviting you to go OUTSIDE and do nothing LOL... Alara is playing ALL day outside but she can't get enough of it... Tell me WHO CAN ;)

Yes I've been tagged again by dear Fauve (you can find her blog at the right sidebar)

Here is how it works:

I need to write 10 weird things about myself AND tag 7 people...

Alright here it begins ;)

1) I Love dandruff (roos) .. I mean that when I see that someone has it on his/her head I love to

rubb it of... This is REALLY strange but I do this all the time.. My husband is getting nuts of me... He thinks I'm a monkey...LOL

2) When I accomplish something that I wanted for ages.. I can't be happy immediately... It takes some time

3) I smoke even if I don't want to...

4) I'm really a clean person BUT you can't see it LOL

5) I hate to cook but I love to eat heehee

6) I spend to much then I can afford (OOPS don't let my husband read this... Well, he won't understand a bit anyway LOL)

7) I'm still taking a nap during the day...

8) I scrapbook at nights

9) I hated mushrooms all my life, NOW I LOVE IT

10) i can call 5 hours FOR FREE but I don't do that..

A lot of weird things HUH?!?

Let me see who can I tag?

I tag... Ellen, Miranda, Nat, missmorgan, silvia, Lindsey, brigitta, Tammy....

Have a wonderful day

SCRAPSTREET ROUND 4, TOOT AND OTHER NEWS


This is the page that I've created for my challenge 'what's your style' at scrapstreet.com... Creating this was SO FUN, I really enjoyed it... Maybe because it's ALL ABOUT MY STYLE ;)
I noticed that i'm getting faster with scrapping. It took me usually DAYS before I finished a layout now I can do it in one evening and STILL LOVE THE result...
And I realize that THIS IS WHAT I WAS MEANT TO DO... I am REALLY addicted to it...

BTW: I printed the photo on white cardstock and sanded the edges with a scissor... I always use scissors for that... It gives the edges a GREAT texture and I'm all about texture AS you know...

You can see my challenge over here: What's your style... It would be very fun if you participated too...

MY TOOT

You know that I haven't been chosen for the Story of your life DT. But yesterday I received an email from sweet SARA (I think she's the owner ;) if I wanted to be a guest-designer in the future.. Ofcourse i jumped on it right away LOL... And her sweet words really touched me. It's always great to get praised.

I am not sad anymore. Being an honorable mention AND a guest designer is such an HONOR. Thank you sweet Sara... I really appreciate it... (I still hope you change your mind though LOL)...

OTHER NEWS:

There is a great contest going to start at SCRAPPERSHAVEN... You don't want to miss this... A posting contest... Do you love to chat?? Start posting then ;)

Here is a sneak of my inspiration file... This is going to be a HUGE project. A SECRET project of mine.. It'll take quit a time though. But the results will be very great ;) I really want to get this idea of mine published in a book... We'll see... Ok, I've said enough... NO COMMENTS ON THIS TOPIC ANYMORE LOL


Hope you all have a great day ...

TOOTIE TOOT

It seems like I have a lot of luck these days... I think it's because I started submitting and joining challenges... I have a big toot (ok, big for me) and a mini-toot to share...

First the mini-toot:

I sent Becky (pagemaps.com) an email that I wanted to contribute to her newsletter.. I got an email back that my layouts were FANTASTIC and that she was going to contact me if she had a spot left... So yesterday evening I received an email if I was still interested... OFCOURSE I WAS... Now I'm waiting for an email with the details and the sketch ;) woohooo

BTW: I won a page kit at making memories blog for given one of the best advices... Yeah that's COOL ;) You can see the post right HERE


It's now time for the bigger TOOT:

My altered clearbox frame is going to get published... Dora at scrapstreet.com asked me if they could publish it in their online magazine ;) WELL OFCOURSE, YOU DON"T HAVE TO ASK LOL... This clear box is my only altered project and it's going to get published woohooo... My first publishing toot ever... This is making me very excited...

I accomplished a lot in such a short time... I'm scrapping for almost 2 years... I scrapped once in a while a page till previous month... Can you believe that LOL... My pages fits in 1 album and there is still more space left...

But now I started to scrap MORE AND MORE... We will see what life is going to bring me... I hope a lot of TOOTS LOL...

I'm anxiously waiting if I'll make it to the next round... See previous posts for more information about the scrapstreetstar contest I'm participating in... PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for me...

Need to get back to scrapping...

Have a great night
