Layout girl

Hey all, Mieke here..... I want to show you some layouts that I made last week, creating with three different lines of Nikki Sivils. They are so cute, so different from eachother.

I must say I'm a real layout kinda girl, with or without sketches. This is what scrapbooking is all about, according to me. Tell stories on paper, leave memories for my family.

This photo is so dear to me. My kids were so cute and they haven't shared a bottle of fristie in a long long time!

This paper is so right for the photo. Will he B the 1, so sweet, love the colors!

I adore the burlap buttons!

My second layout is a family layout. Almost two years ago our American family came over to Holland. It was so good to see them again. Our kids didn't speak English and the cousins didn't speak Dutch but they got along just fine. Especially the girls. They adore each other.

They spent a day at our vacation cabin up north and we met them one day at our home.

We went out for lunch at one of our favorite places in our town and we had so much fun.
Willow Bee had to be the paper when I saw this photo at my FAL's.

This line is so sunny, full of summer. The flowers matched so wonderful.

I used the package of the burlap buttons as an embellishment.

And the last one I want to share with you is special to me.

The moment I saw this paperline I knew I had to do something with my love for music.
This record has been on my wall in my scraproom for years, it means so much for me.
I still remember getting this one for my 9th birthday. So cool. I was in love with Olivia Newton-John since Grease, she was my idol.

On this photo she's got a whole different look!
I know I will never use the record again so this is perfect to capture my memories.
Here's Dan the Record Man.

The orange brad was a white one, sprayed it with Glimmer Mist to get the matching color.

I hope you enjoyed these layouts. I had a lot of fun to use these lines and cut a lot from the die-cut sheets.

You know, if you have some Nikki Sivils layouts, cards or altered items to share, sent them to Julie. Check out the website for more information, some video's and to see all the lines available.

I wish you a fabulous weekend, here it will be very sunny!!

See you next month,
