first layout in ages ..

.. yesterday, while hoping from one blog to another it hit me ..– +geez, haven’t made a layout in quite a while+ .. that’s when I grabbed one of my favorite photos from my Mexico trip and decided to work with it 🙂

I used the cool sketch provided by My Mind’s Eye for their current challenge and the inspirational photo from PaperSmoochesSparks challenge made me finish my layout 🙂 every PP is by MME (I love the paper with the clouds and stars – it’s from the Lime Twist – Fly a Kite collection) and the cute little stars are free PaperSmooches digital stamps 🙂

As you can see I went crazy with distressing the edges and my sewing machine 😀 aahhh how I loved creating this page 🙂 I really like how it looks even though it’s rather monochromatic 🙂

Challenges:
My Mind’s Eye – Sketch
PaperSmoochesSparks – Picture Perfect
CardsGalore – Anything Goes
TheStudioChallenges – Layers

6×6

there’s a cool challenge over at Sandy’s  blog – create a layout by using 6″x6″ paper 🙂
fortunately,  I only have three 6×6 paper pads = I didn’t take me hours to chose the right paper ;P
it has been ages since I made my last layout +sigh+ .. alrighty .. well 
here are my paper pads 
that’s the layout

and of course .. I used a loooot of stickles bling bling mist

Here’s my creation for this challenge – it’s all about MY little word of 2011 – PERSEVERE

clean & simple

let’s start this years first challenge with and easy task – clean and simple. Over at Challenge Up Your Life we’d love to see your creations following this topic 🙂

In 2011 we still have great sponsors and this weeks price is provided by scrapbookheaven. The lucky winner will receive a 15Euro voucher – how fabulous is that?!

Here’s my layout and two cards for this weeks challenge – as you can see I love the color combo green, purple and turqoise 😉 I colored the images (Whipper Snapper and Greeting Farm) with Prismacolor pencils and Twinklings H2O – I love the glimmer 😀

Happy 2011

Hope you all had a fabulous New Year‘s Eve 🙂

I didn’t go out to celebrate but still had a nice night watching movies 🙂

as already said, I totally think that 2011 is going to be a fabulous year 🙂 I finally got the opportunity to study abroad 🙂 in August I will leave for Tennessee and I’m so looking forward to it! Unfortunately, 8 more months but there’s still so much to do until then – in January and February I have a lot of exams and a few papers to hand in (maybe I should start writing them .. Oo), I need to earn some money so I can spend it in the States, need to figure out a date for my TOEFL, have to call the embassy for an appointment to get my visa .. stuff like that – I hope everything works out fine 🙂

I also have a layout to share – the journaling is hidden behind the photo – I worked with my favorite papers, DeLovely from Cosmo Cricket, those colors reflect me and my personalty in all respects 🙂

photo inspiration

time 🙂 that’s right – for our next challenge over at Challenge Up Your Life you need to get inspired by the picture we posted plus there should be at least 3 buttons on your creations as well 🙂

I made this layout with pictures we took 2 years ago in Atlantic City, New Jersey, when my parents visited me in Philly. That was a great day and it’s actually a pretty nice picture due to the fact that everyone looks quite „normal“ 😀

Now you might think „awwwww what a cute octupus“, right? Well that’s a digistamp by Meljen’s Designs because for this current challenge – you apperently have 4 weeks for this one, until Jan 14th – we got sponsored by Meljen’s Designs and the winner will reiceive 4 digistamps of their own choice 😀
