Keith is coming!

I like countrymusic for a while. It´s not very popular here in Germany but since I first listen to Garth Brooks I´m addicted! :o)
A while ago I heard something from Keith Urban and since this moment I listen to him often. I love his music, his voice and the lyrics.I never got the change to see him life but yesterday we heard that he´ll play a concert in Hamburg. We knew at once that we wanted to go there. So we went to get some tickets immediately.

I can´t wait to see the concert but I have to wait till April 22th. I think I have to enjoy waiting for it! :o)

I´ve been playing with my word for 2007 (identity). I search the web for a poem and found one I really love. Here it is:

Whatever our hands touch -we leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furnitureon doorknobs, dishes, books.
There's no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness
and genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
or a runaway daughter or an anxious
mother or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
to leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
"I felt your touch," may they
also sense the lovet hat is
deep within my heart.

I liked it so much that I did a LO with it and a picture of me we shooted today.

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket, the flowers are from Prima Marketing and I used my fastenator again (it´s been a while since I did that last time).

Crop and new color of hair

Last saturday I went to a crop and had so much fun! It´s always great to scrap with other people! We chated and laughed a lot. And I´ve done four new LOs done *whoohoo*

The first one is very simple. I love that overlay and think too much color, pattern or embellshments would be "too much".

After that Lo was done I wanted to do one with Winnie Pooh because I got some nice new Pooh Stickers and Rub Ons. While I search for the patternd paper I found these Disney papers. I´ve bought them a while ago. When I saw those Disneyworld pictures I prefere doing LOs with them :o)

The last one I did because another scrapper had this great snowflake-die from Quickutz:

I had so much fun! Can´t wait to do my next crop! Yesterday when we went shopping my boyfriend Andi and I talked about a new color of hair. What should I say? We spoke about it and maybe 2 hours later I had a new color of hair! :D
This is the way I look before I change it:

And after:
I´m not sure if I like it. I think I need to get used to it. I´ve been all kinds of blonde the last years...

I´ll try! :o)

Okay, I´ve been thinking about this for a while. So here it is: my first english blog! Please be kind ´cause I know my english isn´t the best.
But I try to give my best and I hope that counts! *lol*

I´ve read about a great idea at
Scraplove! It´s an idea from Ali Edwards. You should find a word - "a word that I can focus on, mediate on, and reflect upon as I go about my daily life".
After reading about it I´ve been thinking a while and with a little help from Japan (Thanks to Dorothy!) I found my word: identity. I guess it fits perfectly since I want to try to stay more by myself and think about the things I like (more than about the things other people like). When the idea came up to scrapbook about this word I thought I should do this too.
So, here´s my LO:

The color of the big flower isn´t right. It´s more brown/purple. I don´t know why it´s not the same on the picture. :o(
But to be honest: it´s a LO I like so far and it´s not often that way! ;o)
