Scrap africa: Moodboard

Good Evening all, 

At scrap africa today we have a lovely moodboard for your inspiration. 


I made a card for this moodboard. Inspired by planes, the states and some of the colors. 
This is my card:

I used a project life card that i found in my stash and pin pointed one of my favorite 
cities in the world, New York. 

This card is layered up in 6 layers.  In the picture above and below you can see the details. 


Love, love, love this city. I have been in every single season and it's lovely in everyone off 
them but i most likely loved the winter / christmas season.  


have a look at the Scrap africa site, all the lovely ladies have made several projects for you inspiration. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Time flies............. Scrap africa

Hello to all, 

Hope you are all well! I am back in town or should i say i am trying to be. I have been out of the scrap scene for the last 7 months. My life has changed 360 with the birth of our beautiful baby boy. Ah well baby?? it goes so fast soon enough he will go to college. After mastering to be a mother, or a mother in training so many new things come my way on a daily basis. I have passed the sleepless nights.....you get used to it and suddenly it changes. He sleeps from 9pm onwards and now i have all this time on hand. I will not lie not every night is the same, sometimes he sleeps trough sometimes he will wake up every hour. Comes with the job, i will not complain it is the most beautiful gift that god has given us and i thank him everyday. 

So here is my page for Scrap africa, its a sketch challenge.


So scrapbooking? do i know what it means................as trends change so fast i made this page without looking anywhere for inspiration. I let my imagination go on its own. I have to get my groove on again but i have to say that it is lovely to have that "little me time"again. Who cares if its at 2 am at night, piece and quiet together with some sprays, paint, paper and embellishments. I will pass by all of you scrappy friends!
 its been too long but i am back

The Sketch:



These pictures were taken when i was 8 1/2 months pregnant. T
he nursery was ready and we thought lets take some funny pictures.
 

Loved most of my pregnancy time. At the beginning it was just awful, the toilet bowl and i were the best of friends. And finally i got that diet that i always wanted but never succeeded until now. 


Well i am getting my groove back. It was lovely to play around again with my sprays etc...
We all know the drill you have two weeks to upload your project and this weeks sponsor is:


Have a good day!

Frosted designs: non traditional holiday layout.

Good morning all, 

It's Channa here to host the Friday challenge this week. 
It's the happy holidays month and it's the month full of happiness. 

The challenge is : Make a holiday layout, that can be a Christmas layout, Hannukah or what you may celebrate this month without using the colors Red or Green. So you are not allowed to use these colors. 

I made a layout using blue and white:


I created this layout using paper from the 7 dots, cold country collection. I used a picture of our christmas tree. I love this time of the year!! All the lovely decorations that make our homes so cosy and warm. 


On the close up pictures you can see all the little details on my layout and the embellishments that i used. 



thank you all for stopping by and enjoy your weekend, 
Channa
