Lindy's Stamp Gang December challenge

Oh my, what a very inspirational moodboard for the December Lindy's challenge this month. Oh how it makes me wish my boys were that young again.

I was inspired by the colors and a recent picture that I had taken with my December favorite starbucks coffee. Bliss... It truly is bliss when I enjoy this Praline cup. I played around with a new app on my iphone and developped the picture in a funny way, here is a closer look:
And a closer look at my elements:
On my page I used embossing and stains, here are the links:
Midnight Gold Embossing powder
Rudolph's Nose Red
Frosty Forest Green
Silent night silver

December More than Words entry

I's begining to look like Christmas !
Time for the December challenge at More than Words blog
Word Inspiration - TRADITIONS
Creative Challenge - HANDMADE
My tradition is simple, every year, I add a new ornament to my tree. It is either purchased during a trip, one of the hand painted yearly ornaments from Pier One Imports or handmade by my kids, myself or a friend. Over the years many ornaments have been added and buidling my tree every year just takes me back to the special moments that we've had as a family.
Fo the handmade part of my page, I added many layers of stucture to my paper for the background and embossed all my chipboards.
On this page, I modified my picture with an app on my i-phone, here is a closer look at the picture.
In my tree, many ornaments are hand made. Here is one that I love made by my friend Renee:
And one of my yearly hand painte ornaments  that I purchase at Pier one Imports:
On my page you will find the badges that my good friend Caroline from Cuts2Luv makes. I love adding her badges to my work:

Ahhh I am starting to craft my album from our trip to Portugal, what a beautiful place, I can't wait to start sharing my pages with you. For this page, another picture from Lisbon, a beautiful October sunset in downtown Lisbon. I was inspired by the color conbo at Lindy's stamp gang.

Always & Forever - More than Words blog challenge

On this day, 20 years ago under the warm Jamaican sun, I said I do...
I do to a wonderful man, that has been very loving, supportive, funny and charming and I am so looking forward to the many years to come at his side.
Here is my take on the ''Something Blue'' component of the challenge.
I made my background by layering a coat of Gesso, then added with a paintbrush some touches of my lindy's sprays.
I just love cluering flowers. And since we got married in Jamaica, I added a few seashells with my beautiful Cuts2Luv flair button.

Here is the lovely moodboard and you can join in on the fun here: November MTW challenge
This was truly a fun page to do, hope you enjoy it.

Good day everyone, it's fall here in Canada, so days are getting shorter and it's getting dark early, what a wonderful way to forget the fall by being inspired by the bright colors of the beautiful moodboard for the november challenge at Dusty Attic.

Products used on this page are the chipboards from Dusty Attic, badges from Cuts2Luv, flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, DYIandcie diecut, the new papers from KarineCazenave & word stickers from 123Scrap.
Two of my favorite product used are my wonderful Lindy's Stamp gang sprays and my brand new embossing dabber from Ranger:
