New York

Monday is my father's birthday. He will celebrate it tomorrow (Sunday) and I made him a staralbum from his trip to New York last November.
I hope he will like it as much as I do :)
It was a lot of work, specially sewing the pages together and cut them.
Made the album with PaperSalon papers, Creative Imagination rub-ons, Quickutz Frankie alphabet, 7gypsies phototurns, some ribbon, Making Memories brads and off course Bazzill cardstock (I sooooooooo love this cardstock and really can't live without!).
Made him a staralbum as America has all those stars in its flag.

So here are the promised sneak peaks :) TFL!!

I feel so lucky having a vacation. It's really relaxed this time, compared to the summerholidays.
Cleaned my house a bit yesterday as I won a prize: a man came over to tell me how much my house is worth.
I was quite surprised about the price he named, and I mean very surprised!! *LOL*
He was really happy about the way my house is (4 bedrooms, new kitchen, new central heating, new bathroom, etc.), very modern he told me and when I was going to sell it I could ask a bit more, as my house is totally finished and new people can come in without having to do much (exept for a bit of painting, but that wasn't nesessary as well). So yes, I was surprised!
Also scrapped a bit, made a layout of Gizmo. Really experimented with paint etc. this time and it felt good!! No photo of it yet :(

Nothing much today... went go out to do some shopping. Went to the center for the Take That cd, but it still wasn't there!! :( Hate it, as I really wanna have it, as I'll go to their concert next Thursday and I'm really looking forward to it.
Been a huge fan of them since 1993 or something, they split up in 1996, but now, 10 years later, I will be able to go to their concert again!! I really can't believe it!!
You can follow this link to hear some music of them and see some nice photos of them :)
Always had a crush on Markie... he's a cutie!! That defenately didn't change! *LOL*

Anyways... been to the center and after that, went to a scrapstore. Bought the latest Doodlebug Plain & Simple flowers
Will be decorating them after Christmas I think. Though it would be nice to alter them for Christmas with some Christmascolors. Don't know yet ;)
Did some more groceryshopping and this evening I settled myself down to work on my father's New York-album.
He has his birthday next Monday, but celebrates it Sunday, so made him an star-album. Almost finished. Will upload a sneakpreview tomorrow.

Not much more... so better go to bed to get some sleep. Will be scrapping tomorrow all day long *YAHOO!!!*

Forgot to thank you all for your nice comments on my previous post :)
And another something... got an idea coming up... just be patient and read my blog within a week :)

Again, I have a vacation. Not too bad I can tell you all! *LOL*

Changed my scraproom a bit. Got 2 new scrappaperclosets, the ones you see in scrappingstores. A scrapstore stopped and they also had these for sale and I can tell you... I just love them!!
Got my patterned paper in the 2 closets (35 dividers each, so I have a bit *too* much..hehe) and my cardstock is in the stackables (got about 45 of them, so I got loads of cardstock!!).
I moved my computer to my window and I just love it! Behind the computer, there is some room for Gizmo and Jet to look out of the window so really relaxing for me. They are here, but not bothering.. :)

Did loads of scrapping the last couple of days: 3 Halloween cards, 4 layouts and 2 mini-albums.
I made the cards with the Magnolia-stamps and I just so love them! They're cute. Already ordered some more. Love them!!

Here are my cards and a Doodlebug house I made recently :) TFL!!!

OMG!! My mother and father in laws came over this Sunday. It was alright.
Specially my MIL thought I was crazy when she saw my scraproom! *LOL*
She said I had enough paper to fill a lifetime or maybe 2 or 3!! hahaha
But when she saw the items I made she was like: WOW!!! I really like what you make. She was quite surprised to see all the items I made so far, specially from their family.
She said I should do an exhibition or something like that. Or give workshops. Hmmm.. where did I hear that before?? *LOL*

So guess I should give some workshops as some colleagues of mine are also interested in scrapping and so is a friend. Hmmm...
It would be alright to do this. Already thought about it a lot, but am unsecure if people will like it as much as I do. Probably I just have to give it a try or something... we'll see.

Right now I'm picking up my Master Special Educational Needs. I'm in my 2nd year. 2 years ago I started it and finished my 1st year. Last year I was starting my 2nd year, but didn't finish it as I had a lot on my head because of my work. So now I'm hoping to finish it and be a Master :)
It's really interesting and I've learned so much the last 2 years and I love so much about my 2nd year is that I can make it my own and study things I'm interested in and learn from my other students and the kids in my class.
Hope to get things on the road for this soon.

Leave you now... Have to get some sleep. The inspection will come at work tomorrow to see how we work and stuff.
