A challenge, a lift layout and a card!

I guess by now you all know I love challenge blogs! This photo waited here for a long time to be scrapped, but I just didn't know how to.... until Say in it Scrap came with the perfect challenge!
"So the challenge is to scrap how you felt on a specific day. This can be as complicated or simple as you want it to be. It can be how you felt, a love one felt, how you think a stranger felt. It can be about a birthday party, a casual dinner, a first date.....anything really. What I'd love to see is conveyed emotion."

Here's my take on the challenge, a day in May '07, which was a perfect day for me, or "x-treme" as the stamp says! That day we took my mom, who was here for a visit, to Niagara Falls, we had such a good time, perfect weather, perfect settings, perfect people..... In other words, the perfect day for me!
Yesterday it was Victoria Day here in Canada, a day we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday. Everybody had a day off and my family did what had to be done, work outside!! I couldn't,so I decided to lift a layout I'd seen on a Yahoogroup which is made by Kirs about Koninginnedag (the day they celebrate their queens birthday) in Holland!

I had the perfect photo, one I took the last Koninginnedag we were in Holland, and had so much fun with it!


I used paint, felt, patterend paper, wrapping paper, stamps, rub-ons, Sakura pens, staples en felt flowers on it.


And the last thing to show you is a card I made by doing the workshop Nancy has on her blog!

I like it a lot, and this card is for someone who deserves a "big hug", he/she will find it in her mailbox in a while!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!



Hey Marjolein,

Scraplove, Kirs

Wat heerlijk om je weer zo volop bezig te zien!!! Je koninginnedag lootje vind ik, zoals je al weet, echt helemaal super, maar "extreme" is ook echt supergaaf! Wat een bijzonder papier heb je daarvoor gebruikt.
En je kaartje is ook helemaal tóp! Gave kleurtjes en gewoon helemaal leuk! De ontvanger/ster zal daar vast super blij mee zijn. Misschien ga ik ook weleens een workshopje van haar volgen, heb nog een hoop te leren op kaartenmaakgebied. (Had nooit verwacht daar aan te beginnen, maar het smaakt naar meer!)

Rieni said...

De wereld is zo groot nog niet.

Fabulous layouts, love the use of the BG with that photo of you.
I can't seem to make cards so I took a break from blog reading & chalenges & also a short break from my own blog to spend sometime on myself. I have got some creativity back & have been doing layouts & a minibook theme based on weekly prompts. It was already up to week 13 when i joined but am all caught up I was so inspired! I have filed paper08 away on the back burner for when I can get my head around it. None of the prompts speak to me like Emily's deck of me did.

Sorry you had to stay in on your holiday. You did get a lot of beautiful things done! So glad you enjoyed the Say It In Scrap challenge. I really like all the embellishments you used.
