Hi everyone,
I had a little time to scrap this weekend so I decided to use this wonderful sketch at sketchy thursdays. Their sketches make me feel soooooo creative. I'm always looking forward to their next sketch.
This is the sketch: And that is what I made:

(my page leans a bit to a site but it's normal when you see it IRL :-D)

My scraproom

During my Easter holidays I painted my scraproom. I wanted some warm blue and I really love it. Then I bought a cupboard at Ikea to arrange my stuff. You can see it on the pic underneath this.

Do you like my new scraproom?

New Challenge at SSS

This week we have a fabulous sponsor, Gauche Alchemy! Know if you haven't seen there kits you really need to go check them out. They put together fun kits with all sorts of goodies in them, from little toys to book pages and anything else you can probably think of. So head over to the Gauche Alchemy store. They also post some cool tutorials and such on their blog.

Someone will win a Wholey Sheet kit. This photo is just some of what comes in it.
The challenge this week is to use a non-traditional scrap item on your pages. Which basicly means anything that you didn't buy in the scrap section...lol. It can be aluminum foil, coffee filter, tissue paper, wall paper, tree bark, anything at all. As long as it isn't something that you would normally use on a page. It can be a little or alot . What can your imagination come up with? Now if you are worried about things not being acid free you can use archival spray or don't let it touch your pictures. I know this will be more of a challenge for some than others, but that's what it is all about right?
And remember your layout must contain at least one stamp.
Gauche Alchemy sent the design team some goodies to play with as well. Please take a moment and check out every ones layouts.

A sporty challenge at SSS

Hi everyone,
It's a new week so that means a new challenge at http://scrapandstampsaturday.blogspot.com/

This week we are really into sports. So, all you have to do is create a layout about sports. Mine is about ballet. I was in a ballet group for almost 14 years. In the year 2000 we were invited in Japan to dance. If you know that I live in Belgium, you must understand how 'big' this was. I had a wonderful time with my friends there.

The sponsor of this week is Stamp and Create (check it out at http://www.stampandcreate.com/)

One lucky participant will win a 12x12 Basic Grey Origins paper pack and a Wags n' Whiskers "lets play" stamp of their choice! Wow! What a prize!!

I just ask that you let me know as soon as possible if you are going to miss. You will also need to submit one tutorial during your term.

You will also need to leave some love to those who play along with us. We all love comments so we like to spread the love!
You will be working with your own supplies mostly. I am sorry that I can not offer you supplies each month but occasionally our sponsors do offer some fabulous goodies for the design team to play with.

All you need to do is send the following to me at scrapandstampsaturday@gmail.com with DT CALL in the subject line by April 17th. I will be announcing the new members the following week!
