I love............

I love many things.............my husband, my family, crafting, shopping, shoes, flowers, etc.... etc...
but one of the big things that i love is......traveling.

From the beautiful beaches in Greece, shopping in New York, Bike riding in Hawaii
driving limousines in San Francisco,Climbing glaciers in Alaska and visiting temples in Thailand. 
I have been blessed with many opportunities to travel while working on a cruise ship 
but there so many places that i have not visited yet. 

I could not put all my put all my pictures on a LO that's why i made the little movie. 

Here is my LO for get creative


Origami heart from a chinese note

 Ribbon rosette
Painted chipboard heart


I used different things for this LO, coins, chipboard ( present from sfragidomania), 
ribbon rosettes, a suitcase stamp, brads and several pictures. 

Enjoy your sunday.........



3 Girlfriends.......


This picture was taken May, 2010, i went with my two friends to beautiful Prague. 
It was hard to get a picture with the three of us, and this was my first attempt. 
We had so much fun..........walking around in the city, 
enjoying some grog ( 1 shot of rum, 1 teaspoon sugar, Lime juice, Cinnamon and boiling water) to keep us warm,  enjoying the beautiful buildings. 

Around the picture i embossed some words that reminded me of that trip.
You can't really see it on the picture but it says....
Crazy, Awesome, Fantastic, Fun, Extraordinarily, Wild, Loving and Amazing..

3 Girlfriends in Prague, May 2010

 I also put some ribbon rosettes, i tried to make them and this is what came out of it.
 It was a struggle in the beginning but as soon as you get the hang of it.........it turns out very nice. 

This will be my entry for the get creative sketch challenge.
