Surprise

There is a new sketch up on the Dutch Dares Blog! I took this sketch as a opportunity for me to get messy with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist once again and I got to use some older stash in the proces!

The photos were taken by Liesbeth when Danielle, Revlie and I suprised her last year with a girls’ day out. Fun times!

The newspaper

A new month: a new Dare! This time it’s all about newspaper!

It’s funny how Dares that seem easy, turn out to be uhm… not so easy at all. I had a lot of ideas to begin with, but I also had a lot of words to share about the subject (The journaling is all about my relationship with newspapers and how it evolved over the years). Clean and simple proved to be the best and only way to go about it.

Most of the other design team members gave this Dare a far more artistic turn though. Want to see how? Go and visit the Dutch Dare blog and prepare to be amazed!

BBQ

We’ve counted and this evening we had our third barbecue of the year. The first one at our new garden table… which we purchased way back in July! Looks like we’ve still got one really good day to go before autumn kicks in. Let’s see if the weather people are right and we can sit at our garden table one more time!
