my messy fabric book..........

I started this fabric book at a workshop 1 month ago!
I`m happy that it`s all done, because I have a thing with mini books, I never finish them!

It`s the first time I used a sewing machine, I still need some practise ;-)

The pictures where made in June 2008, Scheveningen.

Thanks for looking, and for all of you a happy and creative new year!!

Till next year, love Viv

Cirque du Soleil...........

Two maybe three years ago I went to Belgium to see a show from Cirque du Soleil!
The show of Dralion, it was so beautiful and magic!
So when I saw the challenge over at scrapmojo I knew I had to play along!
We have to make a LO inspired by Cirque du Soleil and use some sequins, at first I din`t know what that is and then I found out I dind`t have them!
But thanks to my mom and college I could use some sequins (lovertjes)!

So here`s my LO:

Thanks for the mojo girls!

De Efteling

Yesterday we went to the Efteling ( a dutch amusement park)!

We had a great day, the weather was fine (no rain at all) and the park was open until 24.00!
Later on it was getting dark and we went in the wild water ride and some roller coasters, that`s even more exiting than during the day when it`s light outside!
It was so fairy taily in the evening when the lights turn on.

The flying dutchman (vliegende hollander) was so cool, a new attraction, during the day there where some malfunctions and at one point they even closed the whole roller coaster.
But in the evening we could get in there and Yeh it was so much fun!!

So here are some pics of this great day:

Keep up the good life!! Viv

One year ago

It all started one year ago with 1 euro!

Let me tell you the story: My mom and I went shopping at the local supermarket, my mom needed something at the service counter when here eye caught a magazine:
( Creatief met foto`s, a dutch scrapbookmagazine)!
It was reduced to one euro, and she said to me; `I think you like this`!
So she bought it for me and when we came home I started reading it, OMG I loved it!
I was immediately addicted, that`s how it all started!
I`m so glad my mom gave this magazine to me, it really changed our lives!

That`s it for now, love Viv!
