Mr Linky

Zoals jullie misschien al wel gezien hebben wil Mr Linky niet meewerken. Het ging allemaal goed tot we een 2e Mr Linky aanmaakten voor de sketch. Mr Linky kan blijkbaar maar 1 keer en dat ging dus niet.

Daarom hebben we besloten om vanaf nu op te houden met Mr. Linky en vragen we aan jullie om in een comment een DIRECTE link te plaatsen naar je inzending!


Nog even voor de duidelijkheid: Deze link kan verwijzen naar elke webpagina waar je creatie staat; een blog, een fotosite, enz. MAAR........ we willen wel een DIRECTE link. Dus geen link naar je blog, maar een DIRECTE link naar de post waarin je project staat. Dat scheelt ons namelijk erg veel zoekwerk.


Zouden de mensen die al wat ingestuurd hebben hun link even opnieuw in willen vullen bij de comments? Dan kan iedereen weer kijken welke mooie creaties er gemaakt zijn.


Heel erg bedankt, en we vinden dit heel erg vervelend!


As you've probably all seen, Mr. Linky will not cooparate with us the way we want him to! It all was fine until the second Mr. Linky for the sketch was made, it's only possible to use 1 Mr. Linky a month and this didn't work.


That's why we have decided to stop with Mr. Linky as of now, and we want to ask you to place a comment with a DIRECT link to your work!


Just to be clear, this link can be to every webpage your work is placed, a blog, a photosite, etc. BUT, we would really appreciate a DIRECT link. So no link to your blog, but a direct link to the post/page where your contribution is! That saves us a lot of time going through a part of a blog or site to find the right page!


Would you all be so kind to give the link to your page in a comment, even if you gave it already? Because then everybody can see all the wonderful creations!


Thanks so much and we are so sorry for the inconvenience!

Sketch van de maand!/Sketch of the month!

Het is alweer de 15e van de maand, dus weer Sketch tijd!! En weer hebben we gekozen voor een sketch van Peggy!

It’s the 15th again, so Sketch time!! This time we chose one of Peggy’s sketches again, simple because we like them!

De bedoeling van deze schets is om je hierdoor te laten inspireren. Natuurlijk kun je de schets gebruiken zoals je hem nu ziet maar laat hem niet je eigen creativiteit limiteren. Gebruik het gerust met hetzelfde aantal foto's (1 en 3 kleinere), de sterren, titel en journaling zoals afgebeeld. Maar je kan het natuurlijk ook heel anders doen, en minder of meer foto’s gebruiken! En als je de sketch draait, spiegelt, sterren vervangt door bloemen of hartjes of wat je ook maar wilt, creër je toch je eigen idee nav de sketch! Er zijn zoveel mogelijkheden met een en dezelfde schets, je kunt hem zelfs gebruiken voor kaartjes, durf te varieren!!!

The purpose of this sketch is to inspire you. Of course you can use the sketch as it is but don't let it limit your creativity. Sure you can use it with the exact same pictures, the stars, title and journaling as shown above. But you can also use more or less pictures, or all the same size…. . And if you move the sketch clockwise, counter clockwise, or even use it as a mirror immage, replace the stars by flowers, hearts, or whatever you want, you create your own idea by using the sketch as an inspiration! There are so many possibilities with this sketch, you can even use it for cards!!!

Hier is onze uitwerking van de sketch!

Here is our take on the sketch!

nieuwe uitdaging/ new challenge

Hoi trouwe lezers,

Het is weer de 1e van een nieuwe maand en wij hebben de eerste maand gehad. De tijd is zo snel gegaan voor ons. De reacties waren overweldigend, zoveel mensen hebben met ons meegedaan, echt super. Volgende week trekken we een naam uit de hoge hoed en zullen we alle inzendingen laten zien op het blog.
Omdat het verzamelen veel meer werk was dan we dachten, starten we vanaf nu met mr Linky. Onderaan deze post is een optie om je naam en de directe!!! link waar je project staat in te vullen en iedereen is dan zelf in staat door te linken.

Maar goed, terug naar de uitdaging van deze maand. Die staat geheel in het teken van VRIENDSCHAP! Wat betekent vriendschap voor jou, wie is je beste maatje? Heb je een hechte internet vriendin of misschien wel een hele vriendinnenclub waar je leuke dingen mee doet?
Verwerk het in een mooi project en vul je naam in bij mr Linky onderaan deze post als je in aanmerkling wilt komen voor een prijsje!
Succes met het maken van deze uitdaging en wij kijken nu al uit naar de projecten die langs gaan komen! En jullie hebben tot de 31e van de deze maand de tijd om je werk te linken!
Vul je naam én de directe link naar je lootje in in de URL-balk, zodat we gemakkelijk je lay-out terug kunnen vinden.

Als je verder naar beneden scrollt zie je de "prijs" voor deze maand en heel veel quotes, titels en dergelijke om je op weg te helpen met je projectjes, mocht je het nodig hebben.

Wij hebben dit gemaakt:

Hi loyal readers!

It’s the 1st of the new month again, and for us the First challenge month is over. The time really flew by! The responses were really overwelming, so many of you took on the first challenge and the sketch, just great to see!!
Next week we will randomly pick a name of the winner and we will show you all the creations you’ve sent us here on the blog!

Because of the fact that collecting and organizing all your creations, was much more work than we thought, starting this month, we are going to use Mr. Linky. At the bottom of this post is the option to fill out your name, and a link to where your layout/project can be found, and everybody can use the link to see the creations!

Anyway, back to the challenge of this month! It’s all about FRIENDSHIP! What does friendship mean to you, who is you best buddy of BFF? Do you have a close internet friend, or maybe a whole club of friends with whom you have lots of fun and do lots of things? If you do, (and who doesn’t?) show us your layout,(paper/digital/hybrid) mini-album, card, wallhanger, whatever you want to make, and fill out your name at Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page if you wanna make a chance to win a prize! Please make sure you use a direct link!!!

Lots of luck (and fun) with this challenge and were are really looking forward seeing all your creations! You will have until March 31st to send in your work by using Mr. Linky! Enter your name and the directlink to your page into mr Linky
