I made this cupcakes during my mom’s visit, and she picked the US theme. πŸ˜‰ I’m very happy with how they turned out, because red is very hard to obtain when coloring fondant, but I think it turned out very nicely!

Project 365 and Other News

Last week I didn’t do my P365 page because my mom was here and I didn’t have time for it, but this weekend I did 2 weeks’ worth of pages and I’m all caught up again. πŸ™‚

I love the summery colors of these pages! πŸ˜‰

And, some excellent news: I made it through the second cut in the CT contest at Scrap Orchard and I’m now in week 3!! This cut was a big one and only half of the contestants are going on: I feel so lucky to be going on!

Page Done with Mini Sampler

The CT call for Mari Koegelenberg was different from the usual calls: she wanted the applicants to use a mini sampler of her designs to create a LO or a hybrid project. Here’s what I did:

I’m quite happy with the result, and what’s more important it got me a place in her amazingly talented team!! πŸ™‚


Check out my new blinkie:

I’m so happy to be creating for Mari Koegelenberg!! She’s so talented and I know I’ll have lots of fun playing with her stuff! πŸ˜‰

Finally Friday

There’s a bunch of new products out today at ScrapMatters and I used one right away to make this page:

Girl Power by Chelle’s Creations

I used Girl’s Power by Chelle’s Creations: it’s a Girl Scout kit but it works beautifully for other pages too! πŸ˜‰ I fell in love with that blue background paper.. simply gorgeous!!

On another note: gosh, I miss my mum!!!! It was so great to have her here! I really wish my parents and grandmother lived nearby.. *sigh*


I cannot resist entering a good giveaway, and there’s more than one out there! πŸ™‚

Some hybrid goodies at Doodle Palace that I’m drooling over..

And some very cute projects at The Hybrid Chick too! I’m in love with these little mini albums by Mari Koegelenberg!!

Another Contest

I got through week 1 of the CT contest at ScrapOrchard, but when I saw the kit for Week 2 I got worried because it’s not my style of choice.. But I gave it a try and I’m SO glad I did: I love the page I did – totally my style! πŸ˜‰
This page came together in no time: I downloaded the kit and started working on the LO last night before bedtime, and finished it this morning during breakfast! πŸ˜‰

So, I really hope I make it to week 3: we’ll see! The didn’t cut too many people last week (we went from 130 to 99) so I’m expecting more cuts this week, since it’s a 4-week contest and we’re almost half-way through..
I’d love to stay in till the end, because I’m having much more fun than I anticipated!!

A Speed Scrap and 2 My Story Matters LOs

My mom left yesterday and I’m back to my usual routine. We all really enjoyed her stay very much and we’re sad she left.. πŸ™

I have some pages to show from these past few days.
This page I did for the daily Speed Scrap on Monday and I love how it turned out. These were the instructions:

  1. Go to your favorites folder and find a layout to scraplift. It doesn’t have to be an absolute scraplift, though. You could be inspired by photo placement, photo subject matter, element placement, color scheme, title work, etc. Don’t forget which layout you’ve chosen because I’ll want you to link us up in your credits so the rest of us can see what inspired you.
  2. Picture time!! You have to use a picture (or pictures) that you have taken this month. The month of June. The year 2009. πŸ™‚
  3. Use at least 3 papers.
  4. Since this isn’t supposed to be an exact match scraplift, I can be a little bossy about embellishments, right? Put in some ribbon, some string, and some button(s).
  5. For your title, use an alpha only. NO fonts in the title.
  6. Journaling – be creative. Put your text on a path, on little strips, around the border of your page, etc.
  7. Creativity again – Date your LO, but no boring dates just typed on the page in Century Gothic (what I do almost all the time lol). Add shadows and any other finishing touches.

I lifted a page by Denise, and actually used her template based on that page! πŸ˜‰
