petite Sophie

We finally got some picture from my sister.
Here's my favorite one... the one that got my heart.

Je t'aime coccinelle... J'ai hate de te rencontrer au mois de mai.
I love you ladybug, can't wait to meet you in May. (Nick name that my sister is using for her)

Almost all the pictures are out of focus, lighting not so good...I had to play with Picasa to make this one softer. More to follow with batch #2.

All about me class for February - My Bucket List

Inspired from the layout posted a few days ago that was created as a gift for Kim (twin member of the "All About Me" scrapping group) I wanted to recreate a double page layout with this fabulous collection from Basic Grey "Origins" to host the February theme "My Bucket list". Even if you don't want to scrap your list, this could be a wonderful class for you! Dreams come true, take time to write a few down and let's see if they get transformed in reality and get accomplished!

I know there is a few spots left, if you want to join us please call 613.745.2215

When: Wednesday Feb 3rd at 6pm
Cost: $30/$27 for members

40% of my list is scrap related... I wonder why!
A special pic of Kim and I from our get together of last week - she is moving from Ottawa to start a new journey ~ Hope you come and visit us soon,
We... I... will miss you xx, !

Have a great Wednesday
Hugs Stéphanie xx

It's a baby girl, sharing a layout and a beautiful weekend with friends!

Special announcement: My sister Karoline gave birth yesterday (1:40pm Italy time) to her baby girl Sophie and I will be the godmother and my bother the godfather. Both are doing well and once I have photos to share, I will make sure to post them.

Here's a 8" x 8" that I made this last weekend during the crops for a special friend with the new Origins from Basic Grey. LOVE, Love LoVe this collection! I think my favorite so far. They have fun new elements to go with their lines such as fabric flowers, die cut shapes, canvas tags, etc.

A fun weekend with friends....3 days - 2 crops. Friday and Saturday I was trying to work hard with the energy I had (* starting a cold*) on my upcoming Printer's Tray class in February for the store. I will share it Wednesday after it being release in Jenn's newsletter. For the lucky ladies at the crop they were able to have a sneak peek! It was fun to have so many friends there and what a cheerful time it was. Katie lodged at the S&S hotel suites and Stephane had prepped the bed folding the sheets open for her, really sweet. He even offered to cook us French Toast for breakfast, but we were eager to start our day at the crop! Thanks Loulou for the additional chat at the end of the crop. xx

Sunday I had a get together with Mellisa, well worth it, it's has been so long. 4+ hours at the Works (new location Hunt Club Albion - yeahhhh kinda close to work!) to chat, laugh, have a few tears, basically reconnect. Love you Mell and next thing on the list a crop day to get you girls back on track!

Tonight working on my all about me layouts "Bucket list", it's all in my brain so I can't wait to get it done!

Rest of the week will be full of activities and next Saturday it's my My Minds Eye Chipboard Album, I know we have a few spots left, if you wish to attend please call the store 613-745-2215!
Have a happy week

Ending a fabulous week!

I was back at work last Monday after 2 weeks on vacations, I taught my first 2010 class on Wednesday the "all about me series" with a fabulous group of ladies. We became so close the "core group" (Louise, Kim, Heather, Kathleen, Sylvie, Liz, Kathy, Susan......) with new returning member since a few month like Stephanie B. This week we also had Jacqueline and Shauna with us. it's always fun to have new comers to this class, we really created a smashing dynamic; is really amazing! We started this series at the store in April with One Goal: Scrapping really about you, your life.... what makes YOU as a person.

Here's what we did so far:
April - photo's of you age group of 0 to 5 years
May - age group 6 to 12
June - Your Teen age years
July - Your favorite trip / vacation
August - Take me back to the prom
September - Me & my pets
October - My family Tree
November - Christmas past
December - Christmas 2009
January 2010 - My resolutions
February - My bucket list!
A fabulous series that you can join when ever you want is the subject and design touches you and it will probably continue for a long time!

Tonight and tomorrow - it's CROP time at the box. A full house both days! Many of my close friends and peps are going to be there, it's so great! Planning to do my Feb classes in the next couple of days and some valentine's stuff for my Etsy store.

What else is new with my wold, enjoyed watching a good movie yesterday coming back from Montreal Julie & Julia (we were my MIL, 3 fabulous cousins of Stephane Sylvie, Chantal, Louise and us 2 in a van) Stephane was our chauffeur and we enjoyed the movie to change our minds after a ruff afternoon attending a funeral.

I have some really exiting news to share when I have the green flag.... I will make sure to tell you all about it! It's all about Dreams and they can happen....
Have a fabulous weekend,

twenty ten

I finally made my decision.... for my word for 2010.... 6 letters.... 1 big word....


The state of being active, carrying out a task, something done and accomplished.

here's the thing....
  • I love doing lists - but 1/2 of it is really accomplished....
  • I'm a queen of procrastination for certain things, then others are done right away...
  • I have goals, but often lake of energy, organization, balance and time they are not obtained...
  • I want to take action on my dreams and placing Actions to make them happen: being a house, maintaining my Etsy store, designing for a Scrapbooking company, etc...
  • I want to realistic with my goals in setting them, to be proud of what I have accomplished, it's easy to fail went you set your bar to high....
  • I do have a busy life - don't we all! I would like also to be a little bit more Active (motion of action) - "physically" not in the numbers of activities or stuff I have planned in 1 single week but taking care of the body that my soul reside in!
  • Going forward - is something else that comes to mind - when I think of Action. I think I need to let go of some things from the past - to take good Actions to go ahead... to have the head hold up high when my Actions are taken.

To a beautiful year filled up with ACTIONS!

Some layouts to share

This past weekend was a good one scrapping wise!
I enjoyed an afternoon at the Scrapbox with Katie and created 2 of the following layouts of me and Stephane of our Xmas photo 2009.

And yesterday I also enjoyed some scrapping time at home in PJ's and created the one with the butterfly that I had started the background at the store. (I am looking at it know and it needs a little bit of stitching at the top... and at the bottom left side, will pull out the sewing machine to complete it tonight.)
