Old doors

I love to get up early on Sunday mornings, start my computer and scrap. Nobody is disturbing me.
Today I have another reason to scrap early; the weather is outstanding beautiful for the time of year so we want to go for a long walk this afternoon and end up on a terrace with a lovely glass of white wine. Probably it will be the last weekend this is possible. So enjoy!

The layout I made this morning is made with the kit Changing lives by Kathryn Estry. The photo I used is taken in Portugal last vacation. It is an old door. I love old doors! Wherever I go on holiday I'm always looking for old doors to photograph.

Rhonda's homeschooling

As you all may know I'm a CT member of Kathryn Estry. One of the latest kits Kathryn made is Rhonda's Homeschooling. Named after another CT-member: Rhonda.
It is a lovely kit packed with all kind of school accessories. But there are a lot of other elements in this kit which can be used with other photos.

I made this page and used an old schoolpicture of myself when I was only 5 years old (that's ages ago, LOL)

My mam

I promised myself to blog more often, but I didn't keep that promise. The main reason is my mother. My mother was feeling sick when she came home from her holiday in August 2013. She went to the doctor's and many medical examiniations followed. In November they found out she had a malignant tumor near her lungs. A period of radiation started.
Unfortunately the radiation did not help, she got sicker and sicker, and August 11 she passed away. I was so sad but also relieved, her suffering was over.

It was a sad period but it also brought some good, we never had so many and intens conversations before. Rest in peace sweet mam!

Footprints

I found this wonderful quote on the internet, don't know who said it, but it is so true.

"Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart"

For the background I blended a paper of Sarah Barber Design with a background I made myself on the I-pad with the app I-Ornament. I found out that I could mail my projects to myself and safe them as a png.file to open them in photoshop (jpg doesn't work).
The roses in the background are from a photo I took. I used elements of Scrappie Irene and Kathryn Estry. To be honest, I love the rich and warm colors in this scrap. Hope you agree!

Cappuccino

Last year we went on vacation to Italy. After we crossed the border of Italy we stopped at a mall. We were thirsty and we desperately needed some coffee.
My husband ordered coffee and I ordered a cappuccino. We didn't realize that a cup of coffee in Italy is the same as an espresso. Just one big swig and his cup was empty and he was still thirsty, LOL. I was glad I asked for a cappuccino.

For a challenge at Gottapixel I made this page where I told this little story. I used the kit Lori Lane by Kathryn Estry.

Template challenge

What a lovely sunday! We had no plans at all, so I had a good sleep, read a book in bed, had some breakfast and coffee with a cupcake. Turned on the computer and scrapped, went for a walk, and scrapped, scrapped, scrapped! Could I wish more?
This page I made for a challenge at Gotta Pixel. The template is by Lindsay Jane, the papers and elements I used are by Jen C Designs and by kathryn Estry.

Workshop photoshop

I'm always searching for Photoshop workshops to increase my skills. I also took a subscription to Photoshop magazine.
Lot of the workshops are very hard and the result is not always what I expect. But today I tried to make an icesculpture of a photograph of a woman. The result is not the same as in the magazine but I am satisfied. Here it is, so judge for yourself!
