my entry for a challenge

Patterned paper: Basic Grey; Stamp: Magnolia; Flowers: Magnolia; Brad: own stash; Stickles: Ranger; Pencils: Derwent Coloursoft; Ribbon: Stampin'Up

Another one...

And another update on this last day of the year 2008.
Made a layout last night and altered a Prima bottle. Loved doing that!

Right now I'm in the middle of making "Appelflappen" as we call them overhere. It's a tradition to bake them with Old Year's Day. Really, really love them!!
Will show you some later today (yes...that's right...another update...hehe) along with the blog candy you can win! :)

Here are the layout and bottle...

Bottle, tape and flowers: Prima; Bead: ClubScrap; Stickles: Ranger; String: own stash; Cloth: own stash


As it's quite cold overhere in The Netherlands, I wanted you to bring a little sunshine with this cute surffella saying "Aloha!"
Made it very simple, but used Copics for his body and hair. Love them already!!
Also experimented with them on some Magnolia's and they turned out pretty ok. Maybe a new addiction is born with this, but they are so, and I mean sooooo expensive.
Well... I still like my 36-piece of Derwent Coloursoft pencils a lot. But I mean those colours of the!!'s the card.
As said before, very simple....

Oh Christmas Tree....

I just love Christmas!
Decorated my Christmastree last Sunday and I so love it again. It has silver with purple ornaments and a Winnie the Pooh as an angel on top of it. Bought it a couple of years ago in London and it's great!
By the way.. my Christmastree is "cat-proof" *lol*. All the ornaments in it are unbreakable, unlike the ornaments I had in it 2 years ago.

My Christmastree in the evening....

My tree by daylight...
Some ornaments...

I just loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee these ornaments. Had these in my tree as well, but as I have cats, I didn't want them to be in there. These are little ornaments which can't go in a tree, but are home decoration.
Do you see the similarities with Magnolia-stamps?? *lol* I love these as well...

I got them!!!

And am so really, really, really excited!!!
Just booked tickets to see Coldplay live in concert on 10th September 2009!!!
I'm so thrilled to go there as I couldn't get any tickets for the last show in Ahoy, which was the best show a colleague of mine saw!
But now I have them here, right here beside me. Can hardly wait for being September 2009.
Only's on the other side of the Netherlands, so I have to take the next day off..
I can't see any problem here. Trying to get the 14th free as well, so I get a free Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (it's Prinsjesdag and we always have a day off where I live..hehe).
Can you feel my excitement?? *LOL*

OH...and why I wanna see them?? I just love their music, the melodies and stuff. Really theatrical (??). Love it!!
