Family on holiday-book 2010

This is a booklet I bought as a kit from lilith in the springtime. I simply adore how she puts different medias together and makes it look so beautiful. It's the second kit I buy from her so I know what I'm talking about!

So I saved it and took it with me on holiday. Sitting there sewing and stitching in the shade of a tree as we came back from the beach - loved it! Coming home, I put in some pictures and the " family on holiday-book" was finished.

Now Lilith has opened a little shop and if you are interested you check it out.

I'm sure I will do the same next year...

... and to be honest - it was like opening a parcel at christmas when I started.


Books for wednesdaystampers

I love working with art journals. I made this page for Wednesdaystampers challenge, where this weeks theme is "books".
I used some collaged images and the stamps are from Zettiology, Cherry Pie Art Stamps and Crafty Individuals.


Black for Scrappy Accents and Wrinkle-Free Distress for Studio L3

At Scrappy Accents Jaine would like us to create something in the colour black.
At the same time Linda at Studio L3 would like us to show some examples of Wrinkle-Free Distress a la Tim Holtz "CCC #16."
I used a catstamp from Cherry Pie Art Stamps, the colours "black sot" and "weathered would" from Rangers , a black lace and some stickers.

Wish you all a nice evening!

This week Wednesdaystampers has given us the theme "steampunk". This is my interpretation.

Ice cream for Scrappy accents

My dear friend Jaine took over and restarted a crafty site called "scrappy accents". Here everybody with a creative mind, may join and share crafty experiences. This month the "theme" is "ice cream" , so I made an ATC with to children slicking icecream in the hot summersun (stamp - Tim Holtz)and put the word "childhood" on the card. I still believe I got the best icecream when I was a child...

Holidays in les Landes

Some photos from our last holidays in France - les Landes.

A friend of mine bought a house there a couple of years ago. Now she has finished the decorations and I simply fell in love! Look at all these things! Of course , you find Ikea stuff in between, but all the other stuff is found in small shops and on "marches" in the region.

Can you hear the ocean...

AND... this is it! I will definately loose at least 5 kg before christmas - otherwise no pudding for me!
School starts next week and so does my "regime".
In the end the summer didn't turn out to be so bad. Friends and party are important too ! So, ok autumn, you may come!
