bad blogger

I know.... I'm a bad bad blogger this week. I do have a good excuse. Having a terrible cold, not able to do anything but sleep and hanging in front of the tv.
Do have some good news, two of my layouts are published last week in Scrapbook News and Review!

Monique and I have had a wonderful weekend away at the cabin up north. Scrapped, shopped, had a nice lunch and we talked...... so much!
I finished 4 layouts and my mini album. Will show you soon.
First thing I did was my layout for the # 80 sketch for Little Shop of Sketches.

I used Graphic 45 papers with the cute fairy's.

The flowers is custom made by my mum, she know how to make flowers that lady!

The letters I made with my sweet Cricut, I'm so happy with it.
The butterfly pebble is by Prima.
Thanks for looking girls,
I'm going back to my couch. Hope to be better soon to show you some lovely layouts with Epiphany Crafts, so loved playing with the tools! Thanks Mo!!
Enjoy your weekend!

Sketch # 79

Hi all, welcome to the new year of Little Shop of Sketches.
Here's a new sketch, check out the blog to see more inspiration!

I used the Fancy Pants Happy together paper again. Totally love this! And don't you just love these photo's? Our cat went up the tree and found this nice place to sit and wait for the birds. He even felt with his paw inside the hole if there was a biridie inside. So funny to see but we do have to find a way to protect the birdhouse.

This resist paper by Pink Paisle featuring the House of Three is simply stunning. First time I looked at it I didn't see what the fuss was about but when I started using my distress ink and glimmer mist I loved it! I want more........

On this last photo you can see the sewing that I did with the easy sew. Have you tried it? It's fun!

Februari Guest Designer for Tidbitz in Time

Hi all, here is my first layout as guest designer for Tidbitz in Time.

It's a small kit club with an inspirational choise of products.

This feb kit contains mostly MME products together with lots of Prima ribbon.

I used a marker to spice up the flower a bit and some of the Prima pearls.

Take a look at the website of Tidbitz in Time. It's a fun place to be.
The gallery is full of inspiration.
I will show you more next time!
