Not today

‘Cause actually, it was last Tuesday that Scrapping out Lout came up with the new challenge –  and Tuesday I felt *@#!~##&!!?@**!!!!
I looked at the challenge and decided to use the Word of the Week (“Today“) 
– combined with my feeling – right away!
I took my camera and played!


It was yesterday that it became clear where the feeling had come from, yep, that time of the month… I don’t have to explain any further, do I ladies? So I took an aspirin and started making the LO with the photo’s
I took (using the sketch also)



And today? Today my son is here (I’m a co-parent, he has been at his dad’s the last days) and he’s been ill for almost a week. Having the flue and a nasty cough. He stayed home from school last week and he’s sleeping even longer as adolescents use to do when they get a change… (He stayed in bed for so long today that I went upstairs to look if he was still alive!)

Today I also took another look at the LO I made and… Oh, well,
take a look at it yourself.



  • I love the photo’s!
  • It has the  *@#!~##&!!?@**!! feeling.
  • I can’t seem to leave my sewing machine alone these days – 
    in this LO it completes the effect.

But do I like it?

I really don’t know.
I look at it thinking:
YEAH! That’s it!
And half an hour later I look at it
thinking: Mwaaahhhh….


I leave it up to you. What do you think?
Like it or



Old lace
and fabric,




Silver frames
to enlighten
the photo’s.






Scrapping out Loud came with a nice challenge also. About your favorite day of the week… I’m planning on doing a mini book on that one. Already chosen the pictures to go play with, but I don’t know if it’s wise to start today. Maybe I’ll give it another thought, go sit next to my son outside in my little garden, get rid of that white winter skin (sun is shining and temperatures are spring-like for the first time this year!!!) breed me some more freckles and let the hormones rage out before I dare start a new project. Anyway, if everything goes well, you should see it coming on this blog before monday… so stay tuned!
Je t’embrasse!

    Hi Marit! I quite like the layout, it’s good to get those angry, gotta-do-it-right now type layouts when you are really feeling something, you know? And I like the idea of the silver frames, I have a ton of those metal rimmed tags and I never know what to do with them, now I have an idea!
    And PS-Sorry I haven’t responded, it’s nothing you did! I tend to only check a few blogs and never explore, but I’ll be here more, no worries 🙂
