CSI Case File #149- Family Ski Wishes

Oooh Lots of Winter Fun inspiration over at the CSI challenge blog.
Loving the hints of Blues with a touch of Yellow and Green in this color combo and to top it off, another Page Drafts sketch by the Nifty Pixel.
My take on this challenge:
On this page I used Fiber paste & Gelatos on my background, but to color my woode snowflakes I used Silks color #3-720 Azurite. It really gives a nice shimmer, unfortunatly I can't show it on the picture, but if you like some shine to your work, I recommend you try the Silks paints, they are wonderful to play with.
So my page is with a picture of my boys with my husband, during one of our ski excursions of last year. We ski at least 10 times per year, and it truly is a great Family activity. We are blessed that our boys still want to follow us, and we enjoy every moment.
My evidence for this page:
Plaid & Striped papers
Polka dot Mixed Media with Gelatos background
Silks painted woodgrain snowflakes
My Testimony:
Family Ski Wishes:
1-Warm Sunny days
2-Time with my family
3-Lots of smiles
4-Hot cocoa
5- Many many snowy days
Here is the Case file if you want to play along:

Challenge YOUrself challenge #13

Hi everyone, this is my first page on the Design Team for Challenge YOUrself.
If you are new to Challenge YOUrself, one of the most important part of the challenge is that it has to be a picture of Yourself ! 
Challenge number 13 is: Traditions
What are some of your traditions for the upcoming holiday season?
Well we have many at our house, from the Elfs to buying a Christmas ornament on every vacation to making the tree as a family. But one of my favorite traditions are the games that we play like Guessing the Gift. I have to say, my husband is the master at keeping me guessing every year. So this is the topic I chose for my page:

Also, I was inspired by my friend Emma's sketchs over at Page Drafts.

Here is an older sketch by Page Drafts that was presented for a challenge at Let's Capture Our Memories.

Have a great day !


CSI case 148

If you know me, you know I am not a pastel color type of gal, I love my bright colors and my friend Marie-France would say that it's my signature style. A few weeks ago, i found this beautiful watercolor look Blue Fern paper collection, I could not resist and bought it not knowing when I would use it, but I just couldn't resist (yes, I am a scrapaholic impulsive addict)... Well the CSI team have created a beautiful color combo challenge that was just perfect to use with my new papers. Whohoo moment !
So here is my take on the challenge:

I just love this old picture of my boys, I miss that age, hard to believe they are 15 & 17 now, oh how time flies...

My evidence for this page: Tags, staples, string, penwork, birds, clouds, book page and a speach bubble.
Here is a copy of the file if you want to try it out:

Update of the day: My page made it to the Watch list for this challenge. Thanks CSI team !


CSI Most Wanted for CF147

Well, what can I say other than Thanks CSI team for choosing my page in the Most Wanted list. I had struggled with the color combo on this one, the blues were not my standard selection of colors so it makes it double the fun to have been chosen. 

What a nice way to start a vacation day ! Now off to my craft room for some crafty play time !


Art Journal challenge

Ok so I do have many of them in my Art Journal, so the challenge of making little houses was an easy one for me. I did a Christmas canvas recently, but decided to make one in my journal too... So here is my Art Journal page for a challenge at Scrap aux Puces.
So today is a 'Me Day' and guess what I have planned for most of the day !!!
Yup, some crafty time... 
Whoopeee !


CSI challenge #147

Another nice challenge over at CSI. I did struggle with the color combo, not the hues of blue that I work with usually.
I tried to respect the Page Drafts sketch.



Challenge YOUrself Design Team

So what's new? well, I was up for a new challenge and I have just accepted a 6 month DT project with the Challenge YOUrself team. I hope you come and play along in the next months.



Mixed-Media Class Christmas Canvas

Looking for something to do next thursday November 27th? Why not join me and the girls for my Mixed-Media Christmas canvas class at Passion Collimagination in LaPrairie Qc.

For this class, I wanted to make a night background, I had fun playing with my Dina Wakley paints, they have the best texture and the mix of her colors is just perfect for this background. 

The canvas is a 12 x 16 

Also, I know that all the students will have the houses according to their choice in Christmas papers, but there will be one common thing in the class, and that is the Tim Holtz Snowman. I Just love this stamp and die set it is my favorite.

Here is another close-up picture, I just love the stickers words that came with my paper collection.

OOOh can't wait to hang this one up when we get the Christmas decorations going.

18 Years ago

Wow, how time flies, it was 18 years ago today that I married, my loving husband. It does not feel like that long ago, but it must since my kids are now 17 & going on 16...
We got married in Jamaica, a small intimate wedding, but before that, we had a party with friends and family at our house, a pool party pre-wedding event. Of course, it was really hot that day, no shade whatsoever. Also If you knew both our families, you would know we expected that anything could happen... and it did. We were served up to a mock wedding were my brother in law acted as the priest and both Serge and I got dressed up to flavor of the moment. I was wearing a bikini, and was given my aunt Lynn's vail, it was 6 feet long, I am only 5 feet high. They also put piece of ribbon on my hands and legs, and made a Sharpie tattoo on my leg that said Foxy Lady. Serge was also well suited for the event, wearing neon spandex shorts, a tie & hat and tattooed as well. So the mock wedding was not enough, the family decided that they wanted to parade us around our street... Oh yes, I wanted to sell the house the next day. Well, I guess that was the price to pay for not inviting everyone to Jamaica.
So here is a page that I just did for a challenge on Scrap aux puce forum.

And a little close-up of me & Serge. 

Happy Anniversary honney, I Love you so...

CSI Case file s365-8 Princess

Oh it is grey outside with some spouts of rain, a perfect day to spend in my craftroom.
Looking at the challenges that CSI had, I looked at the case file s365-8 and all of a sudden, I was reminded of this old picture of myself when I was about 5 years old. I thought, wow this is the perfect picture for this challenge. I have always loved this picture, granted we had the bas hair cut of the BOWL look back then, but that was the fashion trend at the time. I Loved this red polka dot outfit that my mom had gotten. I was never a fan of dresses so pant suites I loved.
This months challenge had a wonderful color selection of white, beige, turquoise & red. How could I resist.
Hope you enjoy my take on the challenge... 
I rarely use my flowers anymore since I have been playing in the mixed-media world, but I felt they were just a perfect fit for this page. Here is a closer look:

So my evidence for this challenge: Polka dot paper & dress on the picture, chevron paper, clouds for my testimonial, mushrooms, flowers and circles.
Testimony about a childhood memory, well I focused on my character traits when I was young. 
I was: 
1- Always asking questions
2-  Liked trying new things
3- Bilingual at a young age
5-Always smiling
So if you want to join the fun, here is the case file:


Crop en ligne Scrap aux Puces

J'avoue que je suis chanceuse ces derniers temps, j'ai un peu de temps libre, et plein de belles sources d'inspiration pour mes pages de scrapbooking. Que des heures de plaisir dans mon atelier de scrap.

La gagne chez Scrap aux puces ont un crop en ligne full inspirant. Voici quelques unes de mes pages depuis dimanche.

Défi page Facebook: 
Le défi est de faire une page qui s'inspire de notre page Facebook. Pour celles qui sont amies avec moi sur Facebook, vous êtes au courant que cette dernière fin de semaine fut la marche pour la levée de fond pour le cancer du sang. C'est la 2e année que je fais la marche avec mon amie Carmen qui est survivante d'une Leucémie Myéloide aigüe. Elle est vivante grâce a une transplantation de moelle. C'est une cause qui m'est cher, car j'ai 1 autre ami qui a eu ce cancer et 1 ami d'enfance qui est décédé d'une Leucémie a 21 ans. Ma page actuelle est représentative de ma réalité ces dernières semaines. 

Défi Hashtag: 
Alors on doit mettre le # en avant de notre titre... Pourquoi pas une de nos bières coup de coeur???

Défi Google Map:

Bien rien de mieux que mon lieu de naissance, et oui, je suis une petite fille du Nouveau-Brunswick...

Avez-vous remarquer mes beaux boutons Cuts2Luv?

Je vais essayer d'en faire quelques autres d'ici le weekend... en souhaitant que j'aurai du temps.



CSI Case File No 144- Disney Magic

So yes, another Disney page, what can I say other than well... we were there again this year, and yes I have tons of beautiful pictures that still need to be memorized...
This new color challenge at CSI were just perfect for this night picture of the Magic Kingdom Castle. Over the years, we have seen many firework shows, but I have to say that my absolute favorite is this one. The light show on the castle combined with the music and the fireworks makes it so... Magical...
My evidence for this page: Watercolor background, polka dots, stripes, triangles & phrase sticker
My Testimony: We were required to use words in a question format, so my question is the following:
Is there no LIMIT to the Magical Moments at Disney?

Here is a better view of the picture:
