Team Orange

This is my take on the #73 TCR, the sun room :D The photos I used were taken this summer at our yearly family gathering at our summer cabin, a true family fun day! Everyone plays and competes in all kinds of odd and funny competitions. The biggest trophies do not necessary produce the biggest smiles or greatest laughters. This year our team "Team Orange" only won two trophies, two TINY ones. and it was my MIL and FIL who won them for extaordinary "skills" or style. :Þ I used TCR provided sketch for this lo. An unusual sketch and a little challenging to work with.

My summer vacation is over, I started working this week again. We had a great summer, I hope you all did too! :D

Frost Rose

I'm not sure if that is the correct term in english for the snowflakes, but in Iceland we call these beautiful snowflake forms frostroses. I did this layout for a purple challenge and ladies, did I need to dig deep into my stash for some purple things. I love purple, but somehow I don't have lots of stuff in that color. I used my long overdue prima paintables and painted them with Tim Holtz distress inks. MS punches and a few flowers and blings and voila.  Thank you so much for looking. 

a little detail :D

Altered tincan - brush holder

I still have some papers left from my PION papers I got for my guest design projects for

It is so simple and fun to alter cans into brush or pencil holders. I've done I few in the past for nieces and nephews who are starting school. So cute!

This paper is so elegant I thought it was perfect for brushes in a bathroom or a scraproom (they are so elegant too).

Everything is pretty basic about this. You just clean your can and decorate. One cool tip is to glue paper on the back of a clear crystal, using any type of clear glue. I used glossy accent glue, it dries so quickly :D

I am still enjoying my summer vacation. Only one week until I go back to work. It will be good to get into routine again. :D

....and then there was a card

Continuing on my design projects for Skrappoggaman. Here is a card I came up with, using some of the leftovers of the paper I got for this assignment (and I still have some left ;o) ). I used my slice for the notecard under the chipboard letters and a the bigger flowers, the smaller ones are punched. The angel is hand cut from one of the paper sheets and then I just added a little sparkle to it. I love these prima pebbles, they look so jummy :D

Have a great day everyone! :D

Ladies night

I was so lucky to be invited to a "ladies night" last night.  The hostess needed a guestbook and on a 7 hour notice I made this one for the party. I used brown paper bags and my bind-it-all machine to bind it. Some of the bags I used as pockets and put a tag in it for the ladies to leave comments and wisdom :D
