We made it to week 14

Welcome 2nd trimester! I have decided I will stop worrying now. We made it to week 14 and all the tests are finally looking good. All I need now is a bit more energy so I can finally get some scrapping going!

Yikes, she kissed him!!!!

I love working with the sketches provided by SKETCHY THURSDAY and I love using the digital kits of SNIPS AND SNAILS for my hybrid projects.

This is my DD with her two cousins Eric and Victor. DD adores Victor so much and Eric is just not sure if he is ok with it. (See his sceptical look on the left picture). When she kissed Victor, this was just too much for Eric. He screamed from the top of his lungs: Igitt, sie hat ihn geküsst (yikes, she kissed him). We all had to laugh sooo hard.

The kit I used is called WATERMELON COOLER and has the juiciest colors and summery embellishments. A real keeper for all your summer photos. All papers are from the kit as well as the borders (I printed them and fuzzy cut the details). I replaced the printed buttons by real ones and the glittery sequins by real ones as well. Just the letters are from my stash, but I do not remember which brand this was. Sorry!

All the best and thanks for stopping by!

2 new kits released by Snips and Snails

Stephanne has been super busy and has come up with the cutest kits!
The first one is called SIMPLY CITRUS and features all kinds of summery colors!

Here is what I came up with. As usual, I just printed out the super sweet papers, cut up the embellishments and replaced the ribbons with real ribbons. I cannot believe that DD is already 5! In this picture she is 4 months old and looks just like a doll.

The second one is called surf hut and is designed for all the beach and specifically the Hawaii photos. Since I have never been to Hawaii and not really a beach person, I chose some pool photos, which work just as well.
The embellishments are really great, both for digital and hybrid scrapping. My DD and her friend in the pool of a friend. All I added were some stickles, everything else is just from the kit. There are so many embellishments, it is amazing! You have to check it out here:

Opa Swirlydoos

Last night, I finally felt a bit better and dusted off my scrap supplies. The June kit from Swirlydoos is fabulous. Just perfect for male LOs. I have had this photo of my grandfather for a long time and now I the inspiration to do it.

This photo was taken in 1952. My mother was so wonderful to write a 3 page summary of my grandfather's life for my DD. My grandfather died when I was very young and I have almost no memories of him. I will include these pages on the back of the LO.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
All the best,

Reason for my blog absence

Dear readers,
I have already had messages if everything is ok since I have not blogged for such a long time. Well, here is the reason:

I had a really rough start with bleedings, a hospital stay and and and. But now, little baby is 11 weeks old and seems to be doing fine. I am still not well enough to be back at work (tried it for a day yesterday and paid for it the whole evening with non stop vomiting and just feeling terrible).

I have not done any scrapping for the last weeks (the BBQ LO was done a month ago) . I just go to bed with DD at 7:30 and sleep and sleep and sleep.

Hopefully, I will be back soon with more LO's.
All the best
