Color-Me-Scrappy challenge #69

Hello everyone !

A new color board made for back-to-school from CMS blog !

As I'm still with a low amount of scrap materials, I used a little of it :

It's a layout about my daughter, age 3 on the picture. I used a Recollections lined paper (for the twist), yellow ink spray by Studio Calico, blue and green acrylic paint, a chevron mask by Studio Calico, heart rub-ons by K&Company, alpha stamps by the Paper Studio, and a fine pen by Copic .

This month you can win a $25 gift certificate to the online store OF YOUR CHOICE ! So hurry up to create a layout and upload it on the CMS blog !

Feeling Sketchy card challenge #100

September is the first month of Fall, so I did choose Fall colors for this new card sketch from Feeling Sketchy :

One of the sponsor this month is Flourish With A Bling, and as I LOVE bling, it was very inspirational to see a flourish on this sketch. See the result :

Not one, but a bunch of flourishes ! I'm almost out of stock of these beauties...
For the products I used : papers by recollections, frames made with air dry clay and mold by Martha Stewart, Tea dye ink by Tim Holtz, flowers by I Am Roses, sentiment cut with a Sizzix die.

We have two sponsors this month, the second one is Molossi. Use this sketch to create a card and you could win a $30 prize pack from Molossi & $15 at Flourish with a Bling including OS postage !

Have fun !

C'est Magnifique Kit August challenge

Hello everyone !

I've been away from my blog lately for some good and not so good reasons : kids, family, road trip, and robbery (they break into my home...). I'm still pretty busy until the second week of September (remodeling work, gardening and school), but I did manage to create a layout for the C'est Magnifique Kit blog :

Materials :

My well-loved K&Company papers, Prima Marketing stencils, coffee bean spray ink by Inkadinkado, vintage photo distress ink by Tim Holtz, I Am Roses flowers and leaves, Dylusions white ink spray, Maya Road twine, Sticko alpha stickers, and a plaster key I just find yesterday in a closing store.

I can't wait for August to be finished... We are remodeing our attic to have a gameroom and a SCRAPROOM ! I was creating on the kitchen or on the floor since 2 months now, and am really sick of it. I will show you picture of this new room soon...

Have a nice day !

Color-Me-Scrappy challenge #68

Hello !

This new CMS challenge is all about summer ! The twist is to include something representing summer for you. Take a look at the color board :

For me, summer means France, because even if I am French, I didn't leave in my country for several years, and our family was going back every summer to our French home. But most of it, summer means mountains, the French Alps, where we go each time we could. So my summer layout will feature a picture of one of my daughter, running in the mountain meadow. 

Can you ear the music of "The little house in the prairie" ? That's what this picture make me think about.
What do we have in this layout ? 2 sheets of Recollections papers, Copics markers and Liquid Pearls. Text is print white over brown strip and cut in a shape of banners. I add a little bit of vintage distress ink on the back (Tim Holtz).
Of course, I had to cut every flowers and every leaves, colored them one by one, before re-arranging them on the dotted paper. Took me forever...

Scrapbook Generations has generously offered a $50 gift certificate to one of our winner, so come and play on the CMS blog !

On the road again...

On Monday, I was on a road trip to Bretagne to see friends from Houston before they leave again for another country. We had a perfect day by the sea and I want to share with you some pictures of a beautiful shore :

It was a huge tide, so the sea was very low and all the boats were on the floor.

I love all these colors. what a great day we had !

See you soon for more pictures, of a day in Parc Asterix two after this stop in Bretagne...
