Mes coups de Coeur 2013

Difficile de croire que 2013 se termine, mais je dois vous avouer qu'elle fut une année marquante pour moi. Cette année j'ai perdue mon père et j'avoue que ce fut très inattendu et difficile. Je suis chanceuse, le scrap et le mixed media m'ont permis de relaxer durant cette grosse année. Voici mes projets préférés de l'année.
We are about to finish the year, and on my part, I have to say that 2013 was a challenging one. I lost my father this year, it was unexpected and way too soon. Luckily, my passion for Scrapbooking and Mixed Media really let me relieve my stress during the year. Here is a recap of my favorite pages and projects.

Mixed Media:


Alors... j'en profites pour vous souhaiter une Bonne Année 2014 ! Santé, Bonheur et Amour... Profitez de chaque moment, vivez vos passions et entourez-vous de gens qui vous aiment.

I wish you all Happy New Year, Lots of Love, Health and Hapiness in 2014. May you be surrounded by loved ones and take the time to enjoy every moment. Also, remember to Love your Passion !

Just for the fun of Winter

Ah le plaisir de s'amuser avec mes Pan Pastels cet hiver. Un beau petit pingouin et un bonhomme de neige.
How can I resist? A snowman and a penguin... Having fun with my Pan Pastels during my vacation.

Je souhaite que vous profiter de cette belle température pour jouer dehors un peu? Nous sommes allé au ski et les garçons ont fait l'essaie de planches à neige...
I hope you are enjoying the fantastic weather and the snow? We went skiing and the boys are trying Snowboarding ...

CSI case 102- X-Mas Moment

Oh once again, had the chance to play with Emma's fabulous sketchs during the 102 challenge at CSI. This one was not the easiest since I wanted to include as manny of the evidence and testimony requirements as possible.
Doodling, Journaling, lots of hand made work on this page, from the heart and dots boder to the leaves. It was fun to get creative. Again, I was challenged with the journaling, but quite pleased with the results. hope you enjoy my page.
Encore une fois, je me suis amusée avec les croquis de mon amie Emma Stafrace. Ce défi fut mon plus difficile, car j'ai souhaité respecter le croquis le plus possible, tout en incluant les éléments artistiques demandés.
Beaucoup d'attention dans le doodling fait à la main, de la bordure en cœur, en point aux feuilles et au journaling. Je souhaite que vous allez aimer cette page.

CSI My interview / mon entrevue

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration


Lucky 7 Guest Detective - France Ringuette

Hi, I am a Lucky girl who moved from New-Brunswick to Montreal for work many years ago. I've been blessed with a fantastic husband and two gorgeous teen sons. My passion for crafts started when I was young, but I fell in Love with Scrapbooking when I needed a stress relief from the busy life of managing work and family. Scrapbooking is my psychotherapy, my release from a hectic world. I can`t say that I have a specific style other than I like to challenge myself. At the moment, I am enjoying the Mixed-media world and hope you will enjoy my work, come over to my blog and say Hi!
What is your favorite color(s) to work with? That`s easy, anything bright. I just love vibrant colors, my favorites are Turquoise, Lime Green and Red
What would you say is your 'fingerprint' on your scrapbook pages? Ooooh that`s a tough one, not sure I have a signature mark other than my choice in bold colors. I play around in many styles, so I can`t say that I have a brand specific to myself.
What is your favorite part about CSI--the colors, the stories, or the inspiration?  The colors are my favorite part because I often find that CSI chooses combinations that I had not considered and I always love to see each member`s interpretation of the color scheme.
Confession time. Okay, fess up! What secret do you not want to admit but are willing to confess here? I'd love to teach scrapbooking and mixed-media classes around the world one day, that would be an ultimate dream of conbining my two passions for art and traveling.

It's a Happy Day !

My December page for Lucky 7 Factory papers... and yes, I am still scrapping our Mexican vacation pictures, guess it makes me feel like I am still there. Here is a fabulous picture of Gabriel with a small lizard... Enjoy!
