free spirit

I love the brown color of that Basic Grey cappella background paper. The tree is cut out form a creative imaginations design paper (just love the way it feels!! :) ).

Add a little prima, stamps, ink bling et voila! A lay out! ;)

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Here's another one..

For this on eI used a pink paislee line called harvest hayride.The birds are kaiserkraft stamps, stamped with black puffy marker.
The flowers are from an old Rouge de Garance line. I traced over the flowers and used the puffy marker to emboss them..

Thanks for looking!

So here's the first lay out!

I found these (ancient) crate papers at my mons house. I did a lot opf distressing. and I used my new puffy marker, to stamp the bird and birdhouse (thanks Ingvild Bolme for the inspiration!).
The pin was a thriftshop find, that I also had waiting for a year now.. I painted the flowers with Glimmer glam. (I even stole a schilling from my sons piggybank!!)

The key is a sizzix die cut, I used a prima flower center to decorate it.

Thanks for looking!

Did you miss me.....did you..did you????

Just a quick message, since I've been missing in action for a while now...

Life got so bussy that scrapping took a back seat for a little (well...long ) while.

But I'm glas to say that inspiration has struck me once again and I have been scrapping. Feels good again!!

Hopelfully I'll be able to upload tomorrow when daylight graces my work (gosh I miss long summer evenings already!)

Hugs Merel!

I still owed you these...

Happy new year everybody!

I am soooo happy to be finished with my DDA!!!

I love how it came out (much thicker than I thought)and I think it'll be wonderfull to see how december 2009 was, a few years from now!

If I do one again next year, I will stop after the 26th though, those last 5 days were just too much..

Anyway... here are DDA day 29, 30 and 31... I'm not even going to attempt to turn the pictures...Blogger just won't let me...

Day 29..

Day 30..

Day 31..

So now I'm ready for some other projects! (that won't last a month!)
