Birthday boy

Today Jeffrey is celebrating his 16th birthday. As he told us lots of times these last couple of weeks "16 means so much more ..... so much more than yesterday when you're only 15". He's very busy preparing for his tractor licence and now he's allowed to drive on the public road with his moped. Having fun doing this in his spare time ....

... you can imagine how happy he was to get this wonderful present early this morning. His own maintenance kit, so no longer using dads tools.

Happy birthday baby and have a great day.


Hobby Farm and BG#29

At the Hobby Farm blog you will find new sketches for the April challenge. Evelien asked me to design a card sketch. Here's my work on both sketches.

If you like challenges please feel free to join this one and create something nice based on one (or both) of the sketches. Please take a look and see what the other girls did. Karen Taylor is the Guest Designer for this month.

Materials I used for this layout and card:
Patterned papers - Basic Grey "Gypsy".
Buttons, brads, letterstickers - Basic Grey "Sultry".
Cardstock - ColorCore.
Thickers - American Crafts.
Flowers, ribbon - Prima.
Other - chalk, fineliner, staples, Dymo, waxcord and bling.

Basic Grey Challenges has a nice one up this week. Create a Spring/Easter themed project. I did a lot of layouts the last couple of weeks so cards are fun to do for a change. And with a lot of birthdays and anniversary's ahead it's good to have some on hand. For this card I used the beautiful Porcelain papers.

Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy Easter to you all.


Goodbye Page Plans, BG#28 and teatime

I'm very sorry to announce that this weeks reveal will be the last one for Page Plans. Both Lesli and Chris are not able to continue the Page Plans blog due to increased demands from both of their professional and personal lives. I must say I had a wonderful time here and loved the sketches to work with. Thanks so much for the support and I want to wish you all the best and take care!

My take on the last one is a layout about Jeffrey and our little nephew Matt.

#50 - Friends

Followed another sketch this week which was at the Basic Grey Challenge blog. Again I used leftovers from the SAL weekend and after finishing the first one I decided to do another one. Here I turned the sketch.

How could I forget to mention in my last post that I had tea with Elly. Monday a week ago I had the chance to look at all the beautiful spots in her house. We had a lot to talk about and before I knew it was time to go home. The fun thing is that we met through blogging and seeing eachother at markets. Next time at my place?

Only one day till the weekend is here and tomorrow our youngest is coming back from his school exchange in Germany. Last Monday he, 12 other students and 2 teachers took the train to have a great week. Everyone stays in a host family and end of May the boy of his family in Germany comes here to stay at our home.

Have fun and take care!
