Have you seen our new blog ???

We decided after having so much fun the 1st year we would make a blog that's even more fun, combining the dutch dares with an interactive newsletter. You can sign up to get feeds from our posts that you won't want to miss; the dutch dares, inside stories, shop news about Memory Lane Scrapbooking, and other fun projects, techniques, etc. We will be posting 3 times a week.

6 women, one cottage and loads of scrapsupplies

Stick the above in one place and you get a scrapfest !

This weekend was the annual alliance weekend and it was great fun. Lot's of good food, inspiration, singing, photography, sharing and late nights ;)

This is what I brought with me although I forgot to get my weekendbag and 2 cases in the pic.

And this is what I made with it, a recordnumber of lo's, with one left that's 95% so I won't show that yet. So happy with these since I wanted to scap a lot of lo's with pic's I had printed of in a wimb and did not realize that of some I had only one to make a lo with. Then Corinne suggested I scrap on 8,5 x 11 and that was it I went crazy ;) This is a fab size I must admit and will definately be doing this more often.

**edited ** I removed the MAD lo as everyone loved it so (thanks) I have decided to send it in for publication, will be my 1st time but I'd love to try ......

Can't wait to show you the great photo's that Bonnette, Birgit & Corinne made of me. It always takes me a while to warm up to the camera so we did some shots on saturday so I was ready for the photoshoot on sunday @ the Hunebedden in Drouwenerzand.

a LONG post of all sorts

I've been a bit busy have you noticed LOL. I promised you some pics from our weekend away and here's a compilation, I really like the giraffe one (i have more of those), and the one of colin with the giraffe in the background is awesome except picasa chopped of the sides. There are many many more but I didn't want to bore you....

Here are some of my other fave's :

I've been really busy with admin and workshops but have managed to scrap a little bit, made a small canvas last night and a cute fall mini album for a workshop I teach. I really love how the album turned out and there aren't even any pic's in it yet... Lol. This is a joint project between me and Nicole, we threw some idea's together and set the sizes and then each of us made it into our own, can't wait to see her version. Love sharing like this and that's why I love having such a fab team, we share and don't mind it if we get inspired from each other and make our own version. Will show a peak soon !

Now I'm assuming everyone reads Corinne's blog which will mean you will all have read the news we're planning to get around Holland in the coming year and to start it all off we're organising a superfun event in 7 & 8 March with the fab Celine Navarro. So excited it's really going to be well worth it !

On a personal front Michael has been needing a lot of hugs this week as his mouth is really sore ... Feel so sorry for him, switching from "babyteeth" to "grown up" is just no fun .... He has another huge abces next to his moulder and we told the dentist we're not pulling again, it's just no option he keeps getting this we can't simply pull them all ..... So we have to go to the hospital and get a surgeon to look at it and take pic's. Let's hope he has a solution .....

Also I seem to have aquired an award this week for the webshop with the worst service ever according to one forum. Again another case of "broodje aap" (urban legend), someone starts a thread and states something that wasn't entirely true and everyone jumps in to shit over it (excuse my language). Oh well you know I'm handling it better than the last time (this is the 2nd thread on the same forum ...) and have decided not to let it influence me, I know that people get good service @ MLS. I'm not saying I don't make a mistake this happens every now and then, as we all can make @ work, but it's how you deal with it that counts !

I'm busy making preparations to go to the Alliance retreat, trying not to pack as much as last year but DH keeps laughing (as well as the girls when I say this ....) I'll have to try my hardest I must admit ..... I will try to share my projects and cards before I go !

Yes I know you were curious about the photoshoot so I decided to show you some of the previews, can you imagine how I'm dying to see the rest after getting these cuties in the mail ?

Really Florence is so good with the kids, it was trialing at times (colin is not the most quiet and easiest with his bouncy/jumpy lifestyle ....) but she got them to do everything she wanted and they told me they thought is was such a fun day !
