2 layouts, reminder and a special friend!

And a happy Tuesday to you!

I had a great w-end! Fun, creative and relaxing!
Went cropping at the store for the Ultra pampered crop with Loulou and other ladies and had a total blast! Before I forget Cindy W last week said that my pages and projects to her were total Bling, pop and wow! I totally forgot to mention it earlier but that really made me smile!

These are the 2 pages made over the w-end, first one using lots of the Flower Patch collection of Magali and me. Love the colors and they are perfect for black and white pictures! i love how I overlapped the part of the title "remember" with the fabric tag.

The second one is of Sebastiano - my nephew. My first page of him. I guess it was the right moment... I was ready emotionally to scrap him. My sister is living with her little family in Italy and gave birth on November 1st to our first little one in the family and it makes it hard I think for all of us here to not be present in their day to day activities and to see him grow. I hope you will see this one Kiki and that you will love it. Je t'aime et j'espère que Seby va bien - ps j'ai eu ta lettre hier - bisous Xox

Love all the buttons - he is so cute smiling wile sleeping!

And to go with the layout I made a few weeks ago with the symbol of the butterfly, this time I used the little mirror bird.... Hoping to jump on his wings and be there in a flash! Also added a few bird feathers, the perfect soft touch! I used a few recycle items, the back of a paper pack and part of the packaging of the Making Memories Noteworthy Alpha's!

And to complete my post today, I wanted to share a pic of me and Loulou (Louise), what a wonderful person she is. I am truly happy to have meet her through the store during one of my classes and our growing friendship is quite amazing. Thanks for the long talk at the crop and for your valuable insights on life. Merci grande soeur, je l'apprécie!

Thanks Paula for the pics.... Louise and me will have fun scrapping them!

Have a great day and soon I will post the Safari Album - retaking the pictures tonight!
And also I took a contract of doing a wedding Album for Sophy and I have a few pages to share tomorrow!
Hugs

Oh please do a whole album of your nephew! That LO should be published somewhere.
A contract for an album? It's starting for you bella! Not long and you will be quiting your day job and following your creative path! I can feel it!
Oh and I FINALLY got to see the article that was published about your scrapbook quilt in the Scrapbook Trends mag. I can't begin to tell you how happy for you and how proud I am of you. I know we have just been friends a short time but I am blessed to know such a creative soul and call you friend!!

See the above comment! Follow your passion and listen to your heart...
Thanks so much for the kind comments. I really enjoyed the crop, I will go back, it is very stimulating. Also, creating next to you was a lot of fun, but a bit intimidating! I loved the sharing and the complicity.
Those 2 layouts are gorgeous. Love the title you added to Sebastiano's LO. It creates the perfect balance. It is stunning and full of sensitivity. My heart melts when I look at it.

p.s. Loïc a fait un dessin d'un dinosaure avec une barbe... c'est pour ça qu'il l'a destiné à Stephane question de ressemblance!

Oooh, great photo of you and Louise! I'm so glad to have met her in the store on the weekend. Nice to know that people come by my blog to read, even when I think I don't have much interesting to say. lol

Hey, I love all your projects!

Oh, and did you see that Rhonna left you a message on her blog?! Yes, THE Rhonna, the shabby goddess herself. lol
