A little update!

The past few days... I rested and relaxed. I feel better.
Last Saturday I was invited to join a great group of ladies Lynn, Janet and Laurie. We had a blast and it was really a great evening. Yummy super and desert, thanks Lynn for the Gelato experience, it's was fabulous! Thanks for the amazing evening. Here is what I was working on during the crop and since then, trying to complete the layout... Since for ever I wanted to create a page for my sweetheart Stephane. I played with lots of cool stuff and if your wondering about that yellow ticket is actually from 1963, it's a train pass for the Great Northern Railway. Pretty cool what can you find looking for vintage elements!
Have a great Wednesday!
Make sure to see the tips on picture #4!

I was inspired watching a TV show with Stephane Saturday morning on wood crafting. For this wood die cut word, I used chalk inks to "stain" the natural wood look and then used my Cristal Lacker to give the glazed look to the wood! Love it!

Autumn delight

Here's the layout i made Sunday evening. I wanted to focus on the picture and was happy to find the green swirl "applique", that I had for years and was the perfect touch to add because of the Mallard duck!
Happy Tuesday,
Hugs xx

Good weekend and "scrap-cubes"

It was a great w-end!

Saturday we went to Syracuse NY for the day, last minute decision to go and lots of stops.
We decided to take my car instead of the truck to save on gas... however Stephane still doesn't know to drive standard... so I drove all day from 9am to almost 1am... 16 hours later...! We found cool figurines to add to his Star Wars collection and cool scrapbook stuff! Ac Mores had a sale on lots of products and the clear stamps are so much cheaper in the States!

Sunday it was the final Blackburn crop! 9 to 9, but Mell and I arrived around 11. Prior to the crop we enjoyed breakfast, a stop and Micheals and M & M. It was really great to spend the full day with you Mell... it's been so long ago that we had the chance to be just the 2 of us!

These are the cubes that I created for the Scrapbox during the crop. Love playing with the line of Senic Route. Even if it was part of the valentine line, it's a perfect one to express Love in general! A mix of all my favorites photos of Stephane and me! It's a small dimension to use (3½ x 3 ½) but they were really fun to do!

Have a great week
