10 random days in March 2011

.. is a new challenge in our Scrapbooking Forum – we have to create a cute little album where we record 10 random days through out this months. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun to scrapbook about random things – and I’m pretty excited about everyones results 🙂

Because I want to create every day differently I have not prepared any pages yet, but I tried to create a nice album cover – as you can see I used the sewing machine again and an old curtain LOL 😉 I used gift wrap which I found quite some time ago and bought it because it looks soooo pretty – pink blowballs on a azure blue background 🙂 – felt, ribbon, pearls, stickles and a cute little owl are on this cover as well 🙂

Avent-time/Christmas @ CUYL

Exactly – as we all know, Christmas is coming up soon – actually in exactly 20days 🙂

–> so this weeks challenge over at Challenge Up Your Life is all about advent and christmas 🙂
I created this christmas calender out of matchboxes and used this cute angel digi stamp and this layout – I mainly used Basic Grey – Eskimo Kisses and the christmas tree is from Robyn Fisher our this weeks sponsor as well. The lucky winner will receive 5 digistamps or 4 digistamps + 1 digipaperpack.- Awesome, right!? 🙂

Saint Nicholas @ CUYL

for the following two weeks it’s all about Saint Nicholas Day over at Challenge Up Your Life.

Saint Nicholas is actually a pretty cool tradition which takes place on the 6th of December. He is a special children’s saint and is honored throughout Austria. It is said that God rewarded Nicholas‘ generosity by allowing him to return to earth each year to bring gifts to all the good children 🙂

so here’s my creation, I found the template at creadoo and think its pretty cool and very easy 🙂 I also used this great digistamp designed by Sassy Studio Designs who is sponsoring this weeks challenge!

desk organizer

I pimped this Ikea organizer and I used purple and green – again .. because I just got some purple and green wall decor stickers and a little purple nightstand so I thought I should use matching colors 😀 btw I think purple and green are great together 😀

there’s the before and after picture 🙂 I just used acrylic pain, some purple lace and ribbon with sequins, flowers and some NON self-adhesive half pearls 🙂 haha I need to use up those pearls so I can buy new, of course, self-adhesive ones haha .. I do like this organizer it fits into my room – I like it alot 😀

Challenge Up Your Life

is having a BIRTHDAY 🙂 how awesome is that? the best challenge blog ever is already one year old – isn’t that great?

The new challenge is quite easy – they want to see some celebrations 😉 – quite a good topic I guess because I need a birthday present quite soon – so thats what I got – a card, a maze book (love it, and haven’t done one in a long time, and of course, a mirror – I love the colors 🙂 )
