Bye bye for now...

Yup... bye bye for now.... we'll be leaving for our US vacation tomorrow! I'm so excited... we'll be starting in Las Vegas and we'll be traveling all around Nevada,California,Arizona & Utah. I'll try to update my blog as much as I can during our trip...I promiss.. hehe..

I'll leave you all with a set of mini-cards that I've created for Buzz&Bloom by using their awesome NEW mini series (I've also used some scraps from the layout in my previous post):
Here's a closer look at the cards:

I've painted all chipboard shapes with acrylic paint.

Then I've covered them with some Diamond Glaze for a shiny look

While the Diamond Glaze was still wet I've also pushed some rhinestones into it

But it's also fun to cover the whole shapes with rhinestones huh? Don't forget to check out the Buzz&Bloom BLOG to see what the rest of the DT has created!!

Well, gotta run.. still need to prepare so many things! I hope to be able to update again soon... otherwise I'll be back in about 3 weeks!

Thanks for stopping by again!

We have a winner...and a layout...

Due to circumstances I wasn't able to teach at the amazing Scrap-A-Licous event yesterday. Such a bummer.. I was sooo looking forward to it! Happily Corinne Delis and Dina Wakley were able to take over my class (thanks girls). I bet the weekend is going to be so much fun.. I wish I had more time to stop by in Veghel today or tomorrow to see all the girls and to shop till I drop.. haha (since there will also be a LOT of stores present at the event).

In the meantime I've randomly picked a winner from all entries for my little workshop! Thank you so much for playing along! I was so happy to see all of your cards popping up here! So much inspiration!!!!! Aaaanddddd.... the winner issssss........ NADINE!!! Congrats girl, send me your addy and I'll send you your RAK asap!!!

I've also been playing with the cute Mini Series by Buzz and Bloom!! For this project I decided to hightlight all fun things from our Mexico vacation back in 2007. We were there for only 1 week, but it was amazing!

Here's a better look at it...

For my title I've used the CB TMS: Distracted Schoolgirl chipboard alphabet which I've painted pink with acrylic paint. Then I've covered the letters with diamond glaze to give it a shiny look. While the diamond glaze was still wet I've pushed some rhinestones into it.
Wishing you all a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Both cards are created with some scraps from My little Yellow Bicycle:

2 peas...and a cutie patootie.....

Yeah.. I'm still alive.. don't worry.. hehe.. We've spent a few days in France (in Nancy) to visit my grand parents overthere.... so good to see them again after 6 months!! On our way to France I got a text message from Revlie (thanks hun) telling me that I had been chosen as POTD (Pea of the Day) at 2peas... (unfortunately I had to miss all of the fun and all sweet message since I had no internet connection in France..) I'm so excited.. just can't believe that 'little' me has been chosen as POTD!!!!

There's also a fun new challenge up at the wijDUS blog!!! It's all about friendship.. (don't forget to check out te blog to see what the other girls have created as well.. so much inspiration) Anyways.. here's my take on it... I've used a picture of me and my sweet friend Peggy here.. (patterned paper: Pink Paislee)

Here's a better look at it:

Oh.. and I totally forgot to share these fun pictures of my little Niece Demi with you (which I took a few weeks ago)... .she's getting used to the fact to see her auntie showing up in front of her with that HUGE camera.... hahahahaha..
BTW.. I'd like to give a HUGE shout out to my sweet friend Revlie as well.. she's been chosen as this month's Guest Garden Girl at 2Peas!! WOOHOO! YAY sweetie! I'm so happy for you!!!

Have a great week!
