14 Februari ~CSI #59

Another case at CSI! Case #59. And cause Crate paper is having a Red challenge, I send it in for that too.
Here is my take on this great challenge:

  • distressing
  • numbers
  • embossing
  • Document Valentine's Day.
My journaling:

When you say the date February 14 most people think: Valentine's day.
But the first thing I think of is my sister!
Cause Febraury 14 is her birthday.
When we grow up, Valentine's day wasn't an item in the Netherlands. We know it existed, but it was something going on in that crazy America.
Through the years Valentine has become booming in the Netherlands too.  
But we still don't do anything at Valentine's day.
After all it is the birthday of Regina!
Love, Miranda

Featured again!

At CSI my layout for case #58 was on the Most wanted list again.
I'm so honored!
I just love the challenges at CSI so much.
In fact I like them so much, I turned down an offer for a spot at a DT team, cause one of the conditions was that I couldn't play at CSI anymore.... And that is a bit much to ask, I think!

Love, Miranda

A surprise trip ~ CSI # 58

For case #58 at CSI I made this layout.

  • wood
  • metal
  • string, fiber, twine
  • create a jagged edge

  • Document a getaway.
 Journaling reads:

On April 28 we are married for 25 years. Wow, 25 years ... what a time.
Our plans for a trip to the Caribbean have fallen into the water through all circumstances, but we don't want this moment to just pass by. So we did a little brainstorming: going to London, a bungalow, ....

Then Hans told me that HE will organize something. And that it will be a surprise to me. Wow, that's exciting!
Normally I am the one who organizes surprises.  

So now I have to wait.  
Hans has let slip that we will be flying on Saturday. Oh, so we're gonna fly?! Or is that just a false clue?  
I just have to wait and see.  
Exciting and very cool such a surprise getaway!

Love, Miranda

Love story ~CSI #57

A new case at CSI!
  • hearts
  • flowers
  • solid background
  • punches

  • Document a love story (interpret as you wish).
Journaling (hidden behind the layers):
Mom and Dad felt real genuine love for each other! In the songcontest of 1960 Rudi Carell sang "How fortunate that I am a part of your world." They looked at each other and knew they would go further together
Despite all the problems they had to face. Daddy stepped over to the Catholic church, whatever his familywas thinking about that. That was not easy, but they did it together.
it stayed that way their whole live: high depth and deep valleys. But together they could do anything. Lack of money, Alex who died at birth, the concerns about work, diseases and operations, they supported each other through thick en thin.
Until that was no longer possible. Dad died. Mom stayed behind, alone. And she felt alone so very much. She had lost her mate, her partner, her mark. We could not fill in the hole my dad left. When we left she was alone again and missed him even more.
She often said: "The fun is gone. It's not fun anymore." She did her best to proceed, but it was so difficult for her. She did not feel complete. And that was so hard for us to see.
Luckily for her this time only lasted not very long. After 10 months she joined dad. Totally unexpected and heavy for us, but for her a release.

I miss them both so much! 

And some happy news: my layout "You make me smile" is featured at CSI again!

Love, Miranda

Fly away

 For this layout I used the sketch from Life Paper Scrapbook.
And I used MME papers, so I could join in the GDT contest on Facebook.
Here are some details of my layout:
The journaling is tucked away in the envelop I made from a translucent card, that I stitched together. it's about the last days of my mom.

Love, Miranda
