Graduations and....oops, some creativity!!

We've got a busy week ahead here! Two graduations... oh boy my girls are getting older and older, when did that happen??
This girl, Anouk, graduates from Elementary school tomorrow.... with gown and all the picture was taken about 2 months ago, but they don't have to wear them during the ceremonies. Just another nice dress and some high heels... accessories, make-up, and she's done! Hope my camera's working, so I can show you pictures of the event later this week!
And this one, Marloes, graduates from highschool Thursday! And they have to wear the gown and cap stuff, oh my gosh, that's going to be so awesome! I'm so proud of them both! 3 Years in Canada, doing great, speaking English like they never learned anything else, having lots of friends......
I think I better take lots of tissues with me the two coming nights!

And yes.... I made some stuff!!! At one of the Yahoo groups I'm a member of, there's a different technique every month and this month it's seredipity!
I've made this ATC

And this birthday card for my great-aunt with that technique, and I think they turned out nice!

Another birthday card, made it yesterday..... don't look mom, be patient!!!

With this ATC I had so much fun, clear embossing, sponging with ink, stamping.... and that great bee-woman.... love it if I may say so myself:-)

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a 4x4 canvas I'd made, and it was time to give her a little sister, so I made this one! And now they're hanging together in my scraproom, looks great!

Thanks for stopping by again and have a great day!

Ja, kleine meisjes worden groot (en moeders dus ook elke keer iets ouder, slik! hahaha!!!) Jammer dat ze deze gewaden in Nederland niet dragen, het heeft wel iets, vind je niet?!? Volgens mij is je mojo weer back!!! En nou door blijven gaan! Mooie dingen weer!!!!!!

Moet zeggen dat ik het met anouk ook lastig had met droog houden. Gister ging t 'iets' makkelijker... maar tsja... verdwijnen achter de camera is soms EERRRGGG prettig! hihi!
Puur omdat ook ik trots ben op ze!! Zo goed van ze wat ze in 3 jaar tijd gedaan hebben!! Petje af!! Fototjes naar je G-mail gestuurt! Heleen

Groetjes Kiki.
