Originally I am from the Netherlands; I moved to the USA in 2001. And even though I enjoy living here, I do miss the old buildings and atmosphere of old architecture in Europe.
So when I saw pics of Amsterdam, my favorite color orange popped into my head which is also the national color of the Netherlands.
Combined with black it looks too Halloween-ish so I combined it with grey. I hope you like it :D

Music is my life - free QP!!


Good morning everyone!
Ever have those nights you go to bed, watch a DVD in the hope you'll fall asleep while watching? didn't happen so instead of sleeping I figured I may as well get some scrapping in ;P
Like many people I can't imagine my life without music, so when I saw this kit @ Digi Créa (kit is called Music Soul and is free for a very limited time so get it while you can!) I just had to make a page with it.
I am still lacking in new pics because of my external hard drive issues so instead of making a page for myself I made a QP for all of you to use.
I hope you enjoy it AND your Friday wherever you are!

Just a little crazy....

Today I was browsing in some of my favorite scrap stores and saw the kit Caprice by Thaliris which you can buy @ Digital-Créa (link in right column).
I figured a black and white pic would look better with the elements and paper so I found another old box picture of myself and used it.
I hope you like the page :D

How I love Washington State!

Of course everyone who knows me knows how much I love the state of Washington and especially Seattle and surrounding area.
It's so beautiful and the people are friendly as well :D I wish I could live there but maybe one day if we win the lottery LOL
Anyhow, I found this old picture on a website where I had uploaded it years ago and decided to make a page with it. I used Manue's kit The Garden of my dreams which you can buy @ DigiScrap Mania (see link to the shop in the right column of my blog).
I hope you like it :D

Smell of Provence

I always loved my vacations in the Provence and now all these gorgeous kits came out inspired by the Provence and lavender I just had to make a QP with it.
The kit I used is called Smells of Provence and you can get it free for a very limited time @ Scraptaboutic.
The paper used is originally white but I added a pic with lavender to it and blended it into the white paper so it is not originally in the kit itself as shown.
You can download the QP HERE
I hope you like it!

I come bearing gifts!

Hi all!!

Finally I had some time to scrap again :D Sometimes work just gets in the way of fun doesn't it?
Or maybe all the time? LOL
This time I made a QP with Coco et Co's Sweet Garden kit which you can get Here
Except for the word art I used on the page which is by another designer but I can't find out which one. If you recognize your work please send me a message and I will be happy to give you proper credit for it :D

QP number 2 (shown on top of the page in the bolder colors) was made by Nanine and her kit is called Artificial Spring which you can get here

You can download QP 1 HERE and QP 2 HERE (1 is the top one shown).
I hope you like them!
