What I have been scrapping lately

Even though I haven't shared any layouts lately, I have been scrapping the last 3 weekends. Three weeks ago I made some brag book layouts for my mom who was making a retirement album for her boss. I really had to hurry, so I didn't write down what I used and can't share them.
Two weeks ago I started scrapping layouts about the teamday we had with the manager and supervisors from work. My goal was to make similar, but not the same layouts about each team-member. I used the same background paper and a clean & graphical style for all layouts. I used Shandy Vogt templates and one of my own, scrapped with Shabby Princess kits (thanks to you, Desiree aka KC Dez for your generous RAK) adding an occasional Weeds& Wildflowers element/paper. As I don't have proper credits, I 'll just stick them all together. Btw, the one in the top left corner is me hanging on for dear life while balancing on a steel wire between two trees over a 50 foot (15 meter) drop.
And this weekend I was my grandma's birthday. I made her new autumn door sign out of wood (she gets a new one for every season each year - on easter she gets spring, on mother's day summer, on her birthday fall and on st. nick's winter). And also I made her a birthday reminder calender (I used the beautiful one from Shabby Princess).

Now I have to start working on the W&W challenge I will soon be hosting on our new CT blog. Today our first challenge is up. Check out The Meadow.
