A touch of blue

Already Sunday evening and a new week ahead of us. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Ours has been wonderful. Yesterday we drove to Heemstede; one of my sisters was celebrating her 55th birthday. and we had a wonderful day. Catching up with brothers, sisters, a few brothers in law and a sister in law. It has been a lovely day. And I also love the trip. Just the two of us in the car, talking, laughing and sing along with the radio.Not that I am a great singer but nobody else besides the two of us is hearing it:)

I have aspecial baby boy card to share; I made it in my spare time in between studying;  somewhere in September 2013. One of my nieces gave birth to a baby boy; Tijn . Instead of a card I made a mini book of just 4 pages. I covered  the chipboard pages with papers of Fancy Pants (Down by the shore) and used stickers from Simple Stories (I love summer). Paired up with twine, a little heart, a felt star and tiny aplhabet stickers. I only have a few pics but you will get an idea:

The green sticker says "happy forever"


The front of my mini album

And added a sweet detail



Till soon!

Zo leuk gemaakt!
lekker stoer ook, past mooi bij zijn naam.
Ik hou zelf ook van mini albums maken, alleen worden ze tijdens het maken steeds 'groter', ha, ha.
Groetjes,

Marjolein

Wat gezellig, weer zo'n heerlijk familieuitje! Super dat jullie hier zo van genieten, meer heeft een mens toch ook niet nodig (elkaar, liefde en gezondheid?) Vind je mini albumpje wel heel erg mooi geworden zeg! Lekker stoer, echt iets voor een knul en dan toch met allerlei mooie details! Top gemaakt weer! Had ik jou nou gemaild van de week? Ja toch? Moet ff checken, ja, wanneer een leesbril z'n intrede doet, zijn er al ras andere hulpmiddelen onderweg, ha ha ha! Liefs, Ira xox

Een prachtig album voor een lief klein stoer ventje!

Liefs Thea
Oh my gosh, this is so cute, Stella! I love the cover, with the black and white stripes. Very snazzy. :) It's a real keepsake for your great-nephew.

Sounds like you had a great day filled with family, too. And what a wonderful thing that you still laugh with Marcel. Good for you two!
