Project Pinterest December

A little later than usual and since time is flying by so fast December is almost over already... But let's not get ahead, because we still have some beautiful Christmas days to come :-) 

It's time for another episode of Project Pinterest! Wasn't sure if I would get round to it this month, but I did :-)

In this series I will let myself be inspired by Pinterest to scrap, cook a meal, bake a pie, do my hair, my nails, et cetera. As many of you, I could browse around Pinterest for days on end, but I rarely really use any of my repinned images. And that's a shame, because there's so much good stuff outthere!

This month I let myself be inspired by this layout by Stephanie Howell. I really loved the simplicity of her layout.

And this is my finished layout:

For this layout I mostly used papers and stickers from the Basic Grey Marrakech Collection and my Silhouette Cameo:-)

I have to admit the layout didn't turn out as I had hoped. The simple thing is probably not working for me.. It makes me feel like the page isn't finished.

Can't wait to hear what you think about this layout!

Usually I don't really participate in challenges. Not because I don't like them, but because my scrappy time is very limited, so deadlines don't really work for me. Two weeks ago I had a day off and took some time to scrap. Unfortunately I got stuck on the layout and didn't know how to continue. So I let the unfinished layout lie on my desk and every now and then I pushed the paper and pictures around a bit.. But I couldn't really get it to work.. Until I saw the Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico.. I knew immediately this was the solution to my problem :-) And I like how it turned out..

I mostly used papers from the Basic Grey Marrakech line and my Silhouette machine:-)

This layout is about me and my love during our trip to Marrakech in 2011. We went for a walk through the modern part of the city and had some delicious sweets at the café/restaurant Kechmara in the rue de la liberté. Gotta love macarons!

Can't wait to hear what you think!

Love, Dee

Photo a day November 2012

My Photo a Day November by FatMumSlim :-) 

Yes! I'm still alive.. The past few weeks (or months even) have been crazy and I just couldn't keep up any more.. So I put my blog on hold for a bit.. And even though I've missed blogging and staying in touch with you guys out there I have to admit it was necessary to take a step back.. And I don't know wether I can get back in the pace I was going before, but hey... we'll see!

Anyway, I hope you haven't forgotten about me and come back every once in a while ;-)

Love, Dee
