Cool in the pool!

This is a layout for the August  challenge by Memories trend.
I used mostly my scraps for this layout.

I was inpired by summer and by my son! He has been taking swimming classes since July and he has been doing great!
Can you tell that I am a proud mommy or what? LOL
I feel like a cheerleader, cheering with joy to encourage him each time it is his turn. I just love it when he looks at me and says : "Look mommy!! I can do it!! I can swim!!"

So much to do and so little time!!

Do you love a messy floor?This is what we did to ours!Guess who did the cleaning LOL

(you can see part of it in the second photo)
 and our clothes are waiting patiently on my sofa to be put in!

I still have 10 more days until I go back to work so time is precious!!
We are getting ready for the beach today!!We managed to go swimming yesterday too!The sea is simply awesome in the morning! I hope you are enjoying the summer sea and sun!
Don't forget the sunscreen! ;)

A 'princess and the frog' card

Today I would like to share this cute little card I made for a fairy princess.

I was looking forward to using this Magnolia stamp for so long
 but all my projects lately were all about boys!
So here it finally is!Pink and girly!

This is how I made the card:
First of all I stamped and coloured the Tilda and then I cut the image.

My next step was to cut this nestability die I had also not used (I need to make a catalogue of what I have because sometimes I forget things in my bottom drawer )!! This die reminds me of a doily and that's why I had bought it in the first place.Then I painted it  with shell pink dabber

Cut my cardstock,scored it and used my flower corner punch

Used the same border punch to make a tiny garden and used my snow cap dabber on the edges

and then started putting them all together

a flower on top and a sentiment ... the card is ready!

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments...
They really mean a lot to me!

The stamps are from Hero arts and I have added some white tails with my Sakura pen.

This was a difficult week for us since my son had a flu....He had fever and was coughing all day and all night long.He is feeling better now and I hope that my daughter hasn't got the flu too....
 We will soon know!

Things were left a bit behind and I need to start creating!!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

With a brush in my hand!

Hello everyone!do you like painting with a brush? Is that a yes?
I have been painting for the last few weeks and I can say I enjoyed it!
My hubby and I have been painting and redecorating a small kitchenette into a wardrobe and decided to 'expand' our .... activities!
We realized that the room we use as an office needed a redecoration too so there we were painting the walls , taking everything apart and then putting them back together again.Our kids want to participate too and that complicates things LOL So we work when they are asleep....!

The good thing is that it's a great way to keep fit, since I have been cooking and eating a lot lately...LOL
So here come some photos!After everything is back into place I will post some more!Take a look!

this is me on a ladder... painting!

After we took the kitchenette's cupboards out of the way ,
 we had to fight mould too!

this was the next stage

and here is the office

finally the office is almost done!My hubby and son are on their pc,relaxing!

There are still lots to be done ....  but I have found time to scrap!!Late at night of course...Some projects will be up soon!Ok time to get busy again!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!Enjoy scrapping!
