BIRTHDAYS challenge at Patties Creations

The theme for the new challenge at Patties Creations Challenge is BIRTHDAYS. Pattie recently put up a whole alphabet with matching images in her shop, and as my grandson's names starts with "E" I used this letter.

I went for bright oranges and greens and coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens. The orange and green paper pieces are from my stash (always good to use that up hey!), and the flower and leaf are cardboard stickers I have had foeeever.

The challenge starts today, and ends in 2 weeks time, so hurry on over to the Patties Creations Challenge BLOG and enter your card under Mr Linky! Remember, you MUST use a digistamp, and if you use one of Pattie's stamps, you put yourself in line to win her special prize!

My Heritage Page was featured!

What a nice surprise when I opened the latest Scrap Affairs (Issue 25) yesterday! The "Dutch Heritage" scrapbooking layout that I sent a while ago, has been featured in the Scrapper Gallery pages (pg.31)! I could not post this layout on my blog earlier, because I had entered it into their competition, and although I did not win (boohoo) I am thrilled that this page has now been printed in their mag. So at last I can show you!! All the big flowers were hand made, the windmill was cut with my Cricut and chalked up, and the clogs I drew, cut out, and coloured in with Copics! There are also 2 little messages that do not show up on the layout as they are "hidden" behind each of the main photos. If you look carefully (zoom in) you will notice a small tag to the left of my grandfather, and to the right of my grandmother. When these are pulled out and opened, each has a little hand written story about what I personally remember about them. Hopefully my descendants will enjoy this bit of information. I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I look at this layout and it brings back wonderful memories.
