Halloween dreamcrop

yesterday I went to dream crop again for 12 hours. This time the team was Halloween and a lot of the ladies were dress out as witches and monsters. They look so funny.We got lovely gifts, did a lot of scrapping, got great food and we also played "Bingo" where I was so lucky to win twice some pens from zig and some beautiful Christmas paper from Sandi lion.
We also had a challenge where we should make a layout with 3 different kind of patted paper and 3 different kind of cardstock.I made this layout and won the price, which was a clear stamp alphabet. On hidden tags I wrote the stories behind the daddy wanted to take a photo of my daughter, but she wouldn’t only took him 31 minutes to get his photo.
I also made this double layout of my daughter. I find the idea to this in "Hall of fame".The journal goes like this : Almost 10.........10 years of watching you grow....lead you the way....teach you about the little and big things in life......comfort you....encourage bedtime stories for you....laugh with you...allowing you to make let go and let you stand on your own’s melting my heart when at me...when you have success with the things you do.....when you say "sorry mom".....when you say "I can do it"....when you give me a hug and tell that you love little girl is grow into a big girl.

By the way did I mention that my doodling class last Monday was a success. There were 17 student and they all were so sweet and they did a lot of doodling. I had a great time and dreampapers ask me to do another class in January.

convention on Funen

Yesterday I went to a scrapbooking convention on Funen ( a part of Denmark). It´s a 2½ hours trip by car from my home but it was all worth it.
I went to have fun,to shop, to meet some of my scrapbooking friends and most of all to take my friend Netti by surprise. She came all the long way from Jutland(another part of denmark) to this convention and didn´t know that I would be there.
It was so funny to se her face when she saw me.......and we had a great day with a lot of fun and shopping.

I made this layout of a day in my daughters life. I found a old note, where I had been writing down what she did and eat that day back in june I made a some tags with the journal from the note.

I also made this layout " mom ninni is turning 1 today" My daughter wanted us to celebrate that her teddy bear "Ninni" turned 1 year, so we did.
the idea wiht the hat and balloons is liftet from Nicole gartland.
I was so lucky to win the third place for best layout.
