I saw the attack on film and I went cold, the images are horror like and hardly to believe. A black Suzuki Swiftdrove into the crowd of people, planning to hit the bus driving the Royal family. It went fail and collapsed with a monument De Naald in Apeldoorn. 4 people died immediately and this evening the 5th person died, 13 people wounded.
The driver of the Suzuki Swift- a man, age 38, T, living in Huissen - is also wounded an in a hosipital, nothing is known further yet. (reasons and explanations, and motive - the "WHY?? so to speak - , but I don't feel there is a reason or explanation for these things) This house has been searched but nothing has been informed on this to the public.)
I don't understand the day and age we are living in. It seems that what we hear on the news what happens in countries like America and Belgium and Germany, is coming to our country as well and in a more rapid speed than I like.
I am at loss for words for this...
Queensday cannot and willnot ever be the same after this....

Yesterday we had our Easterbrunch and it was really nice as you can see on the small photo impression above. I didn't make to many photo's; the batteries of my external flash died on me, so I had to use the flash of the camera. Fortunately it isn't too bad, but I am not so happy with it. I have to remind my self to check my gear a day or 2 in advance to make sure that all is ok.

In the afternoon I went also shopping with mom. We both bought a pair of summer shoes (so my second pair :D) white "wolky like shoes" and again @ Scapino. We went into the better shoe stores as well (Schuurmans Schoenen, Tiptoe) but found nothing to our liking so happy we found at least one pair (leather and at a decent price) shoes. And I also bought a new jeans. I gave up loosing my 3 kilo's after X Mas. I cannot seem to get ride of it and I found a new series of Jeans at my favorite store which fits quite well. (With the previous line Sabrine, I fell between 2 sizes, one to small and one to big. With this new line Sanne, I buy a larger size but the cutting is some what smaller so it fits ok.)
Late in the afternoon I sat in the sun for about an hour or so. Not long and it was after 16.00 but still I had to pay with serious headache afterwards. The night was a hell and this morning I woke with even more headache than yesterday evening. I took 2 paracetamols and it's over 3 hours later and finally I am feeling better. So no more sun tanning for me. I am completely over that. the nice brown tan isn't worth getting headaches everytime, so i will simply stay pale. (Mayby try some bodylotion with self tanning creme)
On to more, nicer stuff :)
Friday last, my parcel from ScrapDelight arrived with the latest goodies I ordered. Unfortunately they forgot my Doily lace punch and the hotfix stones were still unpacked after a fair , so that will be send later.
First some puffy thickers, they are thick and shiny, so more bling to add to a layout. There was no black so I went for white and brown. My Mind's Eye; Maggie May from the Penny Lane line.

Ok, I want to show a card I created for Scrapstreet which didn't make it. They had a call for a layout with nursery rhymes, and while I did an internet search for those rhymes I found one with the text an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I immediately thought about the October Afternoon papers with the funny apples on it, and this is the result.
Even though it isn't chosen I still like it :) @ night I finished the latest novel of Iris Johansen; De Schedel. Again a good read, but I have also read better books from her hand. This wasn't anything new, but still a nice read.

But today when I woke the sun wasn't shining, it was dark and misty and.... raining....I wanted to try to take some photo's later today of flowers and blooms and spring thingies, which should go ok as long as I don't have to bend. But now... the weather is dark, let's hope it will be better this afternoon.
I really need to take some spring photo's, there is a challenge over at one of my fav's digishops Digital crea and I want to participate. Deadline is 18 April next.
Speaking of digi; remember I already put up the layout I made using a quickpage for celebrate spring. Even though the template is stunningly beautiful I wanted to create a page made by myself. So last weekend I sat down and re did this layout. See below.
I used a kit from Summertime Designs. She makes beautiful stuff.
Since I was on a roll, I did make some layouts more because I had to make up for some missing subject weeks.
Another subject was money; this is my take on it. I cannot remember from who I used this kit (sorry) the journaling tag is from Designs by Krista.
The final subject was Spring, again I used the latest freebie "Blooms" from Designs by Krista. I just love her digi kits and tend to use them over and over again. I like the fresh pastel colors of this kit it fits well with the photo's.
Also I wanted to share another layout I did using photo's of Within Temptations concert I went to last year. Photo's are not mine, but used with permission of Metal ways.com.
Supplies: Bazzill Basics white, green, pink; Basic Grey Eva papers; McGill flower punch; Mireille Butterfly punch; other: puffy paint white, ribbon pink, green, flower jewels green, pink, stamps, ink, paperclips, hotfix with stones, pins.

I have nothing to put up for now, except an card from the old box which I finished last weekend.
Supplies: clear sheet; Basic Grey Eva papers; Bazzill Basics green; Fiskars borderpunch lacy days of summer; Crafts too corner punch; Other; ribbon pink, star jewel, pin.
And I saw a mail from Scrapdelight that the punches from martha stewart came in and she asked if I was still interested in the doily lace border punch. OF COURSE! so after receipt of the money she will send it along with the order I placed. (some yummy jillibean soup papers Ministrone collection and My Mind's Eye, Tiny dancer and Maggie may from the Penny Lane line. And just when I went to their site I saw even more new lines. Already hooked on Pretty Please I cannot use up my papers so fast as they are coming out!) Even when I plan not to buy so much stuff, I seem to buy quite some stuff.... :)

The other cards are stunningly beautiful and makes me long for spring even more. Also the rest of the mag is again well worth the read. Filled from top to bottom with eyecandy and lots of inspiration. Go see for yourself.
