I couldn't post lately as I was in hospital for surgery. I'm back home now since 2 days but I still need to rest a lot. I'm not online a lot but just wanted to let you know that I'm ok.

A hybrid challenge at SSS

There are some changes at Scrap and Stamp Saturday from this week on. Once a month there will be a tutorial. It will go with the challenge of that week. I hope you all come over to learn some new stuff and create a fantastic layout. We love to see all your wonderful designs.

This week challenge is to use a digital element on your traditional paper layout. I had never done that before so it was a real challenge for me. You can see my take on the challenge at the end of this post.

The sponsor of this week is Stamping Dragon Designs. She has some awesome digital kits and stamps in her shop. Have a look here ->

The winner of this week will receive a $ 10 gift certificate to use at Stamping Dragon Designs.

This is my layout using the elephant stamp. If you want to see what the other members of the DT created, go to ->

Enjoy your Sunday!

Another layout

When we are travelling, we love to take the local taxi. It's a fantastic way to meet locals and see the country from another view.
