Eggs for wednesdaystampers

This is my easter wallhanging, wich I finished last week. And because I hung some eggs on it , I suppose that I can use it as a contribution to wednesdaystampers challenge " eggs"...
I've used stamps from stampotique and tim holtz. Hope you like it!
And happy easter!!!

spring for wednesdaystampers

Well, well - springtime... who doesn't love the spring?
I love the pale colours just in the beginning BEFORE the light green starts to show all over. This is another journal page where I've used the cuttlebug, stamps from artemio, hero arts and stampavie...aswell as some hand made tulips.

"flutter"..."jump for joy"...birdsong"....

Olivers graduation

The card for his graduation.

Our son wearing a swedish graduation hat - still 5 hours to go!

Proud, in the middle of 91 other students.

A beautiful graduation - I'm happy to have had my son in a german school and he was happy there too... Good luck for the future, dear son!

" Doodling" for wednesdaystampers

" A doodle a day , keeps the doctor away!"

I read that somewhere and I do think that sometimes doodling can help us through the day. I remember at school when the teacher was going on and on , I sat there doodling away and believe it or not - I remembered the teachers words better than many other did! I still doodle today - whenever I'm on the phone I need a pen and a piece of paper.

When Belinda from wednesdaystampers asked me if I would show some of my doodles, I felt very honoured and I didn't know what style she wanted. But that is the good thing with doodling - there are no rights or wrongs!

The blue/green one is a "day doodle". It took me a day to finish it and I filled part by part with doodles. Doodling without plan so to speak... The stamp (face) is bought in Germany , but I do not remember who the designer is.

The pink one is a "planned" one where I had a text that I wanted to write. I got the inspiration for this one from a magazine. The text is about life and that we have to appreciate it;

"We ought to be happy to have two eyes, hearing, the sounds, alphabet, tired feet, a heart, a laugh and even pain. If we didn't have pain, we would not appreciate the time we have without pain..."

Not a lot of stamping here though - the only one used is a little one from Artemio.

Hope you like it!

prompt 5 ( livre altere) scrap a la fraise

Different materials, showing something you are really fond of - that was the new prompt
at "scrap a la fraise".
I choose "birds" because I love birdsong.
The page is made out of a page of a bird book, stamped bird images and a little cute bird cutout of a newspaper.

Bathing beauties for Gothic arches

I really enjoyed this one - thinking of swimming in the ocean, when the wind is freezing cold here in Luxembourg!!!

This arch was made out of many scraps;
fabric, card run through the cuttlebug, a rest of twin colour and distress inks, sand paper for the sandy beach, an image from tuscan rose and a lace made in the cuttlebug out of old wallpaper.

Hope you like it!
