«Petit Homme»... What a Little Wine and Paper Can Do to You...

What better way to spend a Saturday evening without kids or men, than to open a bottle of wine and do a little scrappin`? I know, spending Sunday afternoon with another glass of wine, some friends and some more paper! What a wonderful creative weekend it has been! Here is the double-page I made on Saturday:

 (Once again I'm sorry for the orientation of my pic but Blogger still doesn't have a simple solution for rotating them... )

(There's really nothing to understand as to why one pic is uploaded this way and the other that way...)

My paper flowers are handmade with SU cardstock and ink...

 The paper is from: Forever in Time «Bear Essentials»; Basic Grey «Life of the party»; It's the Little Things «Spring Fever»; Beach Bum «Boardwalk» and Bazzill cardstock.

For the title I used Maya Road chipboard letters which I inked with SU craft ink and embossed to add a little shine :)

So that's it for now.. If ever anyone has a SIMPLE solution for my picture orientation problem PLEASE leave a comment :) Thanx again for encouraging my madness!

«Yé où Bouboulle?»

Now that her birthday is passed, I can finally share the card I made for  the lovely Sara-Eve who just turned 2.

I still have to find a solution for better lighting when I take my pictures... Sorry about the quality...

This little critter is «Patience» from Mo Manning's Digital stamp collection which is available here: Patience. I colored her with my prismacolor pencils.

The embellishments I used are all from Forever in Time.

The paper I used is from an 8.5 by 8.5 pad from K&Company: Itsy Bitsy. In addition to Stampin' Up cardstock and Bazill embossed paper.

Hopefully, I will have more time to create this week... I finally got around to putting all my 550 pictures in an album so they will surely be more inspirational this way!

Have a great week and thanks for visiting :)

«Neuseke» or Little Nose

«Neuseke, neuseke, neuseke!» a special moment between baby Jake and his Grandfather from the other side of the ocean...

I based this page on the wonderful sketch number 147 provided by Friday Sketchers:

sketch - Page 017

And I must admit, this is the first project that I am satisfied with... I guess we are all our worst critics :)

Oh! and before I forget, I have to mention: There’s a new challenge blog in town with articles, swaps, interviews, videos, challenges, great prizes and MORE! Check out Lily Pad Cards! [Link:] The contest rules are quite simple and the prizes are absolutely AWESOME!!

Fot the curious:
I used SU cardstock as well as the «So Cute» stamp set for my bunny background.
The patterned paper,the paper flowers, pearls and cut-out were all bought at my corner dollar store and the little silver hearts are silver Liquid Pearls (which I adore).

Thanks so much for encouraging my madness :)

The Pumpkin Patch Kid

When I first saw «Pat in the pumpkin patch» from Mo Manning's digi collection I was totally inspired! Obviously, the link between the stamp and my pic was very easy to make.

The sketch I used is by The Sweet Stop Challenge Blog: SSS102 (

for some reason Blogger won't upload this pic in the right orientation... but I prefer its color and light....

«Pat in the Pumpkin Patch» by Mo Manning is mounted in 3d... and colored in Crayola crayons :) I still love the smell of wax crayons! I just can't stop myself from using them... the trick is to iron the image once your done (put a paper napkin between the image and the iron) this fixes the wax onto the paper.
All the embellishments are from Forever in Time as well as the cardstock and the colored paper which is from their Animal Frolic collection. The orange textured paper is from American Crafts.

And now for the challenges I just couldn't resist entering (in no particular order):
Stamp Something's «April Digi Day» challenge:
Charisma Cardz' «Bling and Sparkles» challenge:
Crafty Emma's «For the Children» challenge:
and finally...
The Sweet Stop's  «SSS102» sketch challenge:

Thanks again for visiting and encouraging my madness!
