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:

Creative Scrappers #280

It's grey outside, our leaves are falling and I miss the summer weather, so just felt like capturing a good memory of our trip to Riviera Maya on paper today. A beautiful sketch by Creative Scrappers was the inspiration. Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

Have a great weekend !

Bravo to the CSI team for this challenge !


CSI case 142

Oooh just love the bright colors of this case at CSI #142.

Here is my take on it:

A very old picture, making this layout took me back in time. The boys were 3-4 on this... They are 15 & 16 now... A great picture taken when we visited family. Hope you enjoy my page, and here is the case file if you want to join in on the fun.

Crop Lucky 7 Factory- Last call

So it is with great sadness thatthe Lucky 7 Factory will be officially closing at the end of the year. Again we are losing one of the independant local business for Scrapbooking supplies. I have been lucky to have been part of the Design Team for the last 2 years. Yesterday we had our last crop in St-Jean sur Richelieu with a few friends. 

I did a few pieces, but I want to share 2 of them with you today.

1st was the Scraplift challenge of a page done byAudrey De Grand Maison. I loved her sketch and respected it, I mainly played on a change of the colors. 

2nd we were given a 30 minute challenge to create a page with adding an element that was given randomly. I received the camera image that I had to incorporate. I used this picture of my husband during our Mexican vacation, cut up some tags from a page and love how it finished.

The challenges are on-line for you to join in on the fun, so go visit the Lucky 7 Factory blog and come play with us.

Have a great day!
