Happy New Year

31 December 2010

And once again it is that time of year when I look back and think, wow that went fast. Before we had our children I remember that I used to get bored. Now I have forgotten what it means to be bored. Days go by so fast and my 4 monsters are growing so fast. I am so glad I have started scrapbooking everyday moments and that I have made so many mini books full of stories. I love looking through them and so do the kids and my husband. 
I have set myself four goals for 2011. I have to be reasonable because I still have to get all my daily chores done, go to work and look after the kids. Here they are:
1. scrapbook all my childhood pictures and journal my stories.
2. exercise more 
3. enjoy simple family moments and photograph them
4. play with the kids.
I would like to thank all those who have left a comment over the year. Each one of them has boosted my confidence. And last but not least I wish you all a Happy New Year. May 2011 be a year full of happiness, laughter, joy and family moments. So to finish off the year some pictures I took today while I was walking with the kids. 

Et voilà. Encore une année vient de se terminer. Une année qui comme les autres est passée trop vite. Je voulais vous remercier pour vos gentils commentaires et je vous souhaite une bonne année 2011, une année qui j'espère sera remplie d'amour et de bonheur. Je vous laisse avec quelques photos prises aujourd'hui.

Hip November kit

29 December 2010

I know they haven't been published on the Hip2besquarescrapbooking blog but I am dying to show at least one of my layouts made with the November kit. I really felt inspired and all my layouts are based on clustering. I love them all but here is one of my favourites. The rest will be for later. I have put some sneak peeks.
Une petite page faite avec le kit de novembre de Hip2besquare. Comme elles ne sont pas encore sur le blog je vous montre qu'une. Les autres seront pour plus tard. J'ai adoré ce kit. J'ai quand même mis quelques aperçus.  

And the sneak peeks:

Number 2

14 December 2010

I love games and this one on the CS avenue Forum is just great. Here's my second layout. I don't like pictures of myself but I do exist so I should get more pictures of me taken. I love the outcome.
Voici ma deuxième page pour le jeu des 7 familles sur le forum de CS Avenue. Arrivez-vous à deviner la consigne?

Material: Bazzill, Basic grey Patterned paper, paint,  graphic 45 die cut, ...

Christmas decoration

13 December 2010

Christmas isn't that far away, I'm in decoration mood so ...
Thanks for looking and have a lovely week.

Damien and Noé

11 December 2010

Happy Birthday my two big boys. 7 years old yesterday. Not a lot of time to write as I am doing a lot of Birthday cooking.  Just a few pictures.

Happy Birthday Robin

8 December 2010

Yes. My little boy Robin turned four today. He was so proud this morning and couldn't wait to give his friends the cupcakes I made (late last night, but that's what mommies are for). So here he is the birthday boy, my oh so sweet, oh so cheeky  Robin.

Me baking at 9.30pm.
The result:

Quick simple home makeover for birthday party. We had some kids come over for Robin and also for Damien and Noé as it will be their Bday on Friday.
And what would a party be without a cake (I made it this morning while hubby was looking after Elouan).
And finally a layout. I made this for the CS Avenue forum.

That was that. I'll be back soon with some more December Daily. I am keeping up with the photo editing and journaling but I am behind on putting the pages together. I am not going get stressed about it as I don't have time to do more. I am happy I am writing the stories I want to tell. I'll do the rest when I'll be on vacation.
Thanks for all your sweet comments. I love reading them. See ya soon.
Petit résumé en français:
Aujourd'hui c'est l'anniversaire de mon petit blond, Robin. Il était vraiment fier ce matin et voulait montrer les petits gâteaux à ses copains et copines. Je les ai faits hier soir à 21.30. Aujourd'hui quelques copains sont venus à la maison (j'ai fait un déco anniversaire en 10 minutes) et nous avons fêter l'anniversaire de Robin mais aussi de Damien et Noé (qui vont avoir 7 ans le 10/12). Puis une petite page pour le jeu des7 familles sur CS Avenue. Voili voila. C'est tout pour aujourd'hui. Je reviens bientôt avec plus de photos de mon December Daily. Merci pour votre passage et vos gentils commentaires.

December 1st and 2nd

5 December 2010

I am not in the mood to write alot just wanted to show my first 2 pages of my December daily. I'm keeping up with the journaling and taking pictures but I am putting the pages together when I have time. Teaching has been keeping me very busy at the moment. Have a great week.
Voici les deux premières pages de mon décembre jour après jour.

Material: AliEdwards templates and brushes; Patterned paper: z'etiquettes

December Daily

2 December 2010

Brrrrrrrr. Yes, I think winter is here for good. It's freezing cold and snowing. This year I decided to follow Ali Edwards and do a DECEMBER DAILY. Here is a sneak peek of my album. I have already written my journaling for December 1st and 2nd and have chosen my pictures but I won't be printing them until next week. I still have to buy some good quality photo paper. For my dairy I used patterned papers from ZETIQUETTES, ALIEDWARDS templates that I bought at designer digitals and stickers from SEI and another brand (threw away the packaging, silly me.) I love the outcome I hope I will keep up as December is a busy period. Kids' birthdays, Saint Nicolas, exams, Christmas, New Year. AHHHHHHH I am already starting to panic. I'll be back soon.
Voici mon December Daily. Mon journaling et mes photos pour le 1er et 2ème décembre sont faits mais j'attends pour imprimer mes photos. J'adore le résultat. A trés bientôt pour plus de December Daily et d'autres réas.

Just for fun

28 November 2010

On Friday night Tweety, hosted a live scrapnight on the CSAvenue forum. Unfortunately I couldn't play along as the kids soccer club had their yearly dinner night and the kids didn't want to miss seeing SAINT NICOLAS. Yes here in Belgium, the children get spoilt on 6 December and the 25th of December is more a family event without presents. Anyway, here's my page for the challenge (which I made toady) and some pictures of the kids with he who shall spoil them again this year.
Une petite page pour le live du 26/11 sur CS Avenue (mais que moi j'ai faite aujourd'hui) et quelques photos de mes loulous avec SAINT NICOLAS.

Poor Elouan, he was quite frightened of the strange man with a white beard but I did take a picture.

Hip September and October projects

22 November 2010

I really love the kits from Hip2bSquarescrapbooking. They are always packed full of gorgeous papers and layouts. As I often lean towards a clean and simple style I always have lots of stuff left over for more projects. Here is a card I made with the September kit and a mini album. I love this format, an idea from Giniew. 
Un petit mot en français. Voici plusieurs réas faites avec les kits septembre et Octobre de Hip2bsquarescrapbooking. J'adore ces kits. D'abord une carte et un mini (format de Giniew) avec le kit de septembre, et puis une série de réas avec le kit de octobre. Ma préféré (pas du tout CS) est celle en orange avec les papiers déchirés. Merci pour vos gentils commentaires qui me font tellement de plaisir.

And then my October layouts. I loved the Halloween related papers and embellishments. I even managed to make a banner.

 The following I just love. Not my normal style but I don't think I have one.

 A simple banner, but I love it. It is hanging in my office/scraproom and I love reading these sayings.

 This double page was based on a sketch by Melanie J. another member of the Hip DT. I love her sketches. And yes, there are 2 pictures of me. I really like these ones.

There are still some more cards to come. I hope to get them done soon. Thanks for looking.
