Don’t worry, I’m not having a “scrappers block” or something… the reason
for not showing you a lay out in a week is because I’m working on one that takes lots and lots of time (and even longer, ’cause I’m a slow scrapper…)
This weekend – a bit tired and dizzy of all the colours and things I’m working with on that lay out – I used the challenge of Scrapping Out Loud to create a simple “in between” scrap to compensate.

I managed to not only scrap
the challenge they came up with,
but I also used the sketch AND
the word of the week, which was “LOVE” 





 And this was their challenge:
“We at Scrapping Out Loud are amazed by all of our loyal fans and all of your amazing layouts you’ve been creating so in keeping with that theme we want you to create a layout based on Amazing Moments in your life!
Don’t forget if you combine the sketch of the week or the word of the week you can double or triple your chances to win this month’s fabulous rak from Love is in the Details!”


I know it’s not very original to take the birth of your child as the amazing moment in your live, most women at the design team did the same, but well, 
it IS an amazing moment!
It was for me too, and I never scrapped these pictures of my just born son
so I went along with it.

The lyrics used
on this lay out are from the song
“Love me tender”
(Elvis Presley)
It was the one lullaby I sang
to my son when he was a baby… 
There are lots of other – and
more traditional – 
lullabies in Holland and I really don’t know why I choose this song to sing to him. I just did.    

 And leaving you with some detail-photo’s that don’t need much explanation…  



























See you soon to show you the “obtrusive” lay out I talked about…

    Hi Marit, this is really WOW! Such a great idea to use the brackets like that. And thanks for your comment on my drinking – I’ll have you know that I’m not much of a boozer these days and three bottles of beer does me in!! I am also a slow scrapper, I have been working on a LO for a DT call all flippin afternoon and i don’t even like it that much….grrrr! I will have to try and rescue it tomorrow, but I fear the problem is fundamental, lol!
