It's been a while

Nothing scrappy to show you yet.. everything is drying now so I will try to make pictures during the weekend.

Last week I worked at the crea weekend in Rijswijk (a scrapbooking and crafts convention). Friday was soooo cold that Anne and I actually used our heatguns to warm ourselves!!! Sunday was bussy and warm! It was so much fun talking and seeing so many people and the workshops that we gave were a hit aswell!

Here are some pictures!

Nothing much has come out of my hands since the weekend as I'm completely nackered and have had a migraine for three days. I did finish some christmas stuff though which I will be posting over the weekend!

Elburg 08

Finally some time for a lay out...

I did a ton of distressing on this lo! I stamped, embossed, snowed, distressed, pearled, crackled.. (it took a while...;))
I've been wanting to do some lacing on a lo, so I finally did it on this one..

The flower at the bottom is a regular flower, on which I smeared some Aleens real snow.

Some details..

Thanks for looking!

mini canvas

I made this cute little mini canvas album for the Scrapangels workshops. I just love that velvet paper! It makes me want to pet the album all day!! :lol:

I keep wanting to do a lay out, but I've been bussy cutting the workshops for the crea weekend in Rijswijk next week ( a pretty big scrapbooking convention). Anne and I will be teaching three different workshops during three fun filled days for Scrapangels. I'm so looking foreward to it, but it's also a ton of work!
Hoping to get a lay out done during the weekend!

Have a great weekend!

We made this calenderbook (agenda) for next year.. 40 people took this workshop class, so now that we're finished teaching it, I can finally show it a bit more.

I'll add pictures to the pages as the year goes along, so I'll always have recent pictures of the boys..

Thanks for looking,

An award!

I'm so excited my bloggie friend (and kiwi in excile... ) Ruth a.k.a. altered geisha gave me the Artey Pico award! Ruth makes wonderful lay outs and altered projects (check out her advent calender..) >

The RULES for presenting this sought after Award are:

1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog.
3. Each award winner (upon acceptance) should show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award.
4. Link to the Arte y pico blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5. Show these rules.

The five winners I have chosen are:

1) Paulien (paulienvandenbosch), she makes amazing cards and is a true inspiration.
2) Tracey (running with scissors) tracey makes gorgeous lay outs at a speedy pace, so there's always something new to look for.
3) Beate (beatesverden) I always love to visit her blog and find some new inspiration
4) Ingvild (spinnvild) she just makes jaw dropping gorgeous lay outs.
5) Irene (scrapperlicious), I think Irene is a ranger pioneer!! She gives wonderful tutorials and makes gorgeous lay outs using beautiful techniques. (it's because of her that I now actually use my distress inks...)

So check out these wonderful artists at there blogs... I don't think that I ever succeeded in using links in my blog so if there are no links please check out my fave blogs and you will find them all there!
