New word on the blog - Listen

Welcome to a new challenge at the Bird is the Word blog
The new word is
Check out the blog to see the other wonderful layouts by the DT

For this layout I custom made my own background. You know I love to do so.
I used the wonderful Sassafras Lass papers from the collection Indie Girl. I love this line!
You know what I love the most? The edges of the papers, I've cut them off of the paper and put them on the white cardstock. Then I used my Glimmer Mist to get some wonderful lines.
Sassafras paper and cardstock stickers and metal flower
Bazzil cardstock white
Glimmer Mist (on the cardstock), Glam and Glaze (on the flowers)
Jillibean corrugated kraft alpha's
Cosmo Cricket tiny type alpha's
Prima say it in Crystals and craftable flowers
Maya Road wood bingo motifs and kraft tickets
Ranger distress ink, liquid pearls and stickles diamond.
A piece of chipboard from a box.
Well, I'm off looking for news about CHA, I'm on top of it all! lol!
Can't wait to get my hands on new products. Hope it will get to Holland soon.
Big hugs,

Second challenge Bird is the Word

Yesterday was the day for the second challenge at Bird is the word blog.
We've had so many wonderful reactions to our first challange and so many have been playing along. Thank you so much for that ladies!

The second word of this month is


I chose a photo of Mara on horseback after a jumping competition. When ever she sees a horse she starts to shine. That is eversince she was a little girl. I remember we were at the farm at my aunts' and Mara met the Shetland pony "Foefie". I believe she was only 1 year old and didn't talk much words yet except for mum and dad. "Paard" (horse) she said when she saw Foefie and she was fascinated about horses. She rides for over 2 years now and eventhough she fell off a pony last week, she's looking forward to go to the stables again this week.Funny detail is that I learned to ride on Foefie and the pony is still alive, turning 41 this year!
