Days of rain, days of storm, days of sunshine… I saw it all last week ’cause the weather seemed to change by the hour and before I know it, it’s Friday again: haiku day. I choose this beautiful photo ~ made by my friend Lena Schreijenberg ~ of an empty beach in the early morning, for my haiku.
stroomt stilletjes richting zee
om terug te komen
flows gently towards the sea
to return later
I submit this haiku to Recuerda Mi Corazon where our lovely hostess Rebecca brings us all together to share a haiku on Friday: Haiku my Heart.
Some time ago I intended to create a scrapbook-layout more often, because it is so much fun to flip through the albums later and reminisce. I stick to that and created another lay-out last week, using two challenges to get me going.
First was this sketch-challenge, provided by Challenge YOURself
The Dutch Dares scrapbooking group on Facebook challenged me to use a BIG FONT TITLE
and here’s what I created.
The photos of me and my loved one were made by my son back in 2009. I used a stencil and olive-green acrylic paint for the background. The title is made with embossing powder and the phrase goes back twentytwo years and is some sort of a ‘between-us phrase’. It dates from the time my beloved and I’d just met. I think it was me who, when I caught him staring at me, said: ‘what?’ He answered ‘THAT!’ We still say ‘THAT’ to each other 🙂
I wish you all a nice weekend, go say THAT to your loved ones!
