Now I can tell and show

Goodmorning everybody!

Now at last I can show you what I was talking about still yesterday! On the 11th of November there is Poppy Day or Veteran Day, well in most countries it is on that date. Here in Holland it is celebrated here and there, but not as big as e.g. in England. But I have a mini blogtrain to announce you. Snowy and Edna were so kind to ask me to join them in this project and of course I said yes! My FIRST collaboration, wow! The 3 kits are very different but all are great, I think. Snowy has it with an Emglish character, Edna with an American and I tried to make it Dutch. So I did mine in the colours of the Dutch flag, red, white blue and some orange from our banner on the flag.

I will show you the previews and give you also the links to the other blogs. Due to time zones, it might be, that Edna's kit will be on her blog later today(there is a difference of about 6 hours!!).

This is my part:

Here Edna's part on

And here Snowy's part on

Well, are they great or not???
Don;t forget to leave some love on their blogs if you are going to download!

It was so hard for me to keep it quiet for a while, because I was so enthousiastic and flattered too about this little collaboration!

And yesterday I was very busy again. I finished a nice kit(will be for tomorrow) and then I started to scrap a lot of the best pictures of my wedding and then I will try to cook something up in Window Movie maker( never done it before, so it will be a blank area for me!) and burn that to a DVD/ Will be much nicer to look at than only just pictures, I suppose. Till now I used some of my own kits for the scrapping but also downloaded some of fellow designers. And yesterday I took some time to go to Valinda's blog and took already a lot of her QP. Always liked her quickpages and amired them, and she has very, very much quickpages!
Yes, i decided to make the scraps not with one theme or colourscheme, but just randomly scrapped, just that they look nice. So you see, I keep myself far too busy, this also will take several weeks and I surely hope I will manage to get them on a dvd!
I first will try to make a "film" with some other pictures, just to get used to the movie maker.

So now I will get on, have to post my kit on Digiscrap Depot and two other forums, and then I want to make some quickpages I think for my "project" and must think about another freebie for next week.
I wish you all a very happy week-end, some of you will have Veteran day celebration already on Sunday and I think it is a good thing for all of us to think about all the lives lost in all the wars, if only just for a moment. I just wished that it happened no more, but unfortunately every day a life is lost in a battle, small or big, justified or not, it already is terrible that people are fighting eachother. And from which view it is justified?? Basicly I do not believe any fighting is justified, because it seldom solves the real problems. I think that is the message to remember from Veteran Day.

Beautiful work, I have fond memories of Holland,I love the Meduradam (sorry for the spelling). I was born in Harwich and my father was a sailor between the hook and Harwich (you will see him on the boat on my blog). I remember chocolate rain for breakfast (shokolate hargen) is how I said it. Lovely Lo by all the ladies for remembrance day, well done.

WOO HOO - look at YOU girl!!! Your FIRST collaboration and I am sure this is but ONLY the beginning of a GOOD thing, eh?

I love the VIBRANT colours y'all have used and Kyra, those poppies are DELICIOUS! I shall have to come back to download as soon as I have conquered my current dilemma in my BATTLE OF THE BUGS!!! LOL!

I am SO asking Santa for a new computer, but I'm sure by the time he gets to my neck of the woods the pickins' will be slim! He, he ...

I shall keep thinking positively and KNOW that GOOD things shall come of it all!

I just LOVE visiting you and wish I could get myself over here MORE often. I SO enjoy reading about your day and/or NEWEST adventure!

Sending love and hugs your way darlin' - MWAH!
