Blogpost with a warning

light warning:

lots of photos!

medium warning:

lots of laughs!! (can you handle that?)

bold warning:

some may find the (title of my) last ATC indecent!!!

Read the warnings?
Want to see this post anyway?
OK, here we go…



Last Sunday, I met Jenneke, Petra, Peggy and Vicky at the scrapbook store
in Heesch. I never met those ladies before so I found it very exciting!
I expected them to be a nice bunch of girls and looked forward to meet them
and spend some time with them, but I had never thought that it would be
THAT fun! Oh my goodness!

We talked, drank coffee, laughed, shopped, shopped some more, had lunch,
shopped again, drank another coffee and shopped one last timeย  ๐Ÿ˜€

At the end of the afternoon, we went to diner at a Chinese Restaurant.
My beloved, who dropped me of in the morning and went to visit an old friend
after that, was already in the neighbourhood and joined us at diner.

It was a day to remember!!!
Thank you soooo much for the fun day, girls!
Let’s do it again soon!

Here are some of the photos:

Peggy, Petra, Jenneke and me



Jenneke ran
around with
her camera
with a big
zoom lens.

When Peggy
and I smoked
a cigarette
outside, she
jumped around
us and was all
over the place.

Ofcourse Peggy
and I had to laugh…


We laughed…


We laughed some more…


… and here’s my favourite!

Wowzah Jenneke, what a marvelous series of photos you took!
Peggy and I agree: from now on, you will be our official “royal photographer”!


And here’s one last photo taken in the Chinese Restaurant.

Me, Jenneke, Vicky, Petra and Peggy


Normally, my weekly art journal page “grows” during the week.
This time I made the entire page last Monday because there was not much
happening during the week and I knew I would go to Heesch and meet
my blogfriends on Sunday. I expected some photos would be taken (HA!)
and I saved the page to describe the meeting and add the photos.

I needed even more room then I thought, so I added a “double page”.

On the left is the description of my week from Monday ’till Saturday.
On the right the description of my Sunday starts…

… and it goes on when you flip the page open.

I bought the paper for the extra page and border in the Scrapbook store.
(BoBunny: ‘Pink Punch Dot’ and Graphic 45: ‘a proper gentleman’ borders.)

I also bought this stamp
(and some more stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  )
and I stamped it on an old
piece of paper – actually it
was a an old tab page that
I found between some
old documents.

And hey! That’s what
Julie’s challenge over at
Yvonne’s blog is
all about.

“Make a LO, card, whatever
you want using old and
new goodies.”

So now I’m into the draw,
aren’t I Julie :):):)


OK now… I bet you all are wondering when the ‘inappropriate’
or ‘indecent’ image is coming… hold on…

Some time ago, I swapped ATC cards with Danielle.
I know Danielle for quite some time now. We share the same humour,
so I thought she could handle this.

(And you can too… nothing indecent here!)

But now… I also made her this ATC.

Take a look and don’t call it inappropriate…

… until you know the title….


(You don’t seriously think I would type this title into a blogpost, do you?
I don’t want to attrack weird guys to my blog!)


Well, we reached the end of my post.
Quite a read, wasn’t it?
Thanks for visiting me again!
I wish you all a nice, sunny week (they predict
snow in Holland at the end of the week, eeeckkk!)
See you Friday!

Je t’embrasse!

    Haha, wat een ge-wel-dige post weer, Marit!!!! Natuurlijk superleuk om te lezen hoe jij de dag in Heesch ervaren hebt (net als ik dus!) en om te zien hoe die dag in je art journal verwerkt is. Vastgelegd voor het nageslacht, dus. Gaaf!! En bedankt voor mijn ere-titel. Bloos…
    Onze groepsfoto valt trouwens wel een beetje uit de toon. Behalve Peggy kijken we allemaal zo serieus… Is niet vaak voorgekomen, die dag!
    Tja, je ATC… zoooo grappig, zo goed gevonden en zo goed van je dat je ‘m toch geplaatst hebt!! En nu maar afwachten hoeveel van je volgers het na vandaag af laten weten ;-).
    Geen รฉรฉn, wil ik wedden!

    Liefs, Jenneke

  • Petra Coolen Says:

    Wat ben jij snel!!! En wat een gave “double page”. Echt mooi zeg.
    “onze” fotografe kan echt goed “fotoยดs trekken” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ben het eens met Jenneke, we kijken allemaal zo serieus. Voor mij is dit echter niet vreemd, dat hoor ik al zowat mยดn hele leven ๐Ÿ™‚
    Het was een topdag Marit.
    Leuk je ontmoet te hebben.
    Wellicht ontmoeten we elkaar nog eens in Heesch.

  • Karen Says:

  • Vicky Says:

    Hey Marit,

    ongelofelijk hoe vlug je scrapt, vind de foto’s van Jenneke zo super en jullie stralen gewoon op deze foto’s. Je ATC vind ik hilarius, echt deze is gewoon om te gieren.

    Tot gauw hรฉ toffe madam.

  • Jeanet Says:

    Je laatste ATC is geweldig Marit, ik had de titel ook al voor ik ’em zag ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Peggy Schenkels Says:

    Amai Marit, jij bent wel snel hรฉ!!! Super art journal page, en ik ben zo trots ook in jouw prachtige album te “featuren”. Ik blijf verliefd op die foto’s, wat staan we er gelukkig op hรฉ.
    En je ATC … hihi, ik had het verhaal natuurlijk al gehoord, maar toch moest ik nog schateren toen ik de ATC voor het eerst zag. Die jongen heeft echt de geschikte uitdrukking hiervoor hรฉ hahahahaha, ik blijf hem geweldig vinden. En je ziet, mensen zijn minder snel gechockeerd (of hoe je dat ook schrijft….) dan we denken hรฉ. Goed van je!!!
    Liefs xxx Peggy

  • Irma Says:

    Nu je het zegt, die stempel geeft een bepaalde associatie! Ik vind ‘m grappig!

    Lieve groetjes – Irma

  • Viv Says:

  • merryheart Says:

    oh Mait! how wonderful to get to meet all the girls in real life. how fun !all those photos are fantastic!!

  • miruspeg Says:

    Ahhh Marit was a joyful post that was! Loved the photos, your story and the journaling. I have met quite a few blog friends and we laughed and had a wonderful time too.

    I have also come over here to tell you I’ll be closing my blog tonight! It has been a joyous couple of years getting to know and love people like you!
    Blogging is a bit too distracting and I need to focus on other things that are now very important in my life, like my new Foundation.

    I’ll definitely still come over here on a regular basis to read your wonderful blog Marit.

    Take care and keep shining my dear friend.
    Peggy xxxx
