MScraps iDSD 2012 bloghop I Love Craft

  I Love Craft

Welcome to my stop of the MScraps iNSD Blog / Facebook Train. The theme is is our love for crafts, be it sewing, knitting or needlework. It is perfect to showcase the items we make or maybe if your kids are into crafts, to scrap the photos of them and the crafty things they create, like I did with my DD. And even if you and the kids aren't into this, the colors are just sweet and fun.
Anyway, I hope you are enjoying the ride. :)

I have made a quickpage with some of the goodies in the blogtrain. I sure hope you like it and I would love it if you let me know!

This is my finished page with my DD sewing a bag for her dolls.



And this is the quickpage:

You can download it here

On to the next stop:
You should have come here from Jen at Jens Cre8tivity
And now it's time to continue the ride over to Laitha of Laitha's Designs
If you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of stops at the MScraps Forum

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon !!

MScraps Summer Fun

I have seriously neglected this poor old blog, I am so sorry. I also have to admit I have neglected project 52 as well, I think I am still in May somewhere.... Thankfully I am on vacation for another week, I will endevour to catch up!

But the reason I am here is to invite everyone to the MScraps summer games:

The prizes are amazing and I am sadly not allowed to compete, being on the CT. I can seriously tell you me and other members have contemplated resigning just for this month to get our hands on some of those goodies (like the Wacom tablet....). And the prizes also include stuff from MScraps designers so there is much to be had.

You can follow this link to MScraps and be very welcome! 

See you there

Bella

I had these beautiful photos of my little one in her Belle dress that I wanted to scrap for her album. I just couldn't find a kit with yellow roses I liked as I wanted fresh and pretty ones. Debi of WeeFaerie was kind enough to help me out! So thank you, Debi!


And based on that I made this quickpage for  you.
The wordart used in my own page is part of the (free!) kit. You can download Bella here at WeeFaerie Ring Designs

You can download the quickpage
or here

I hope you enjoy the quickpage and the beautiful kit and I would love any feedback.
You can find my other quickpages under the 'freebie' label.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon !!

MScraps iNSD Blog/Facebook train 2012

 Hello Sunshine

Welcome to my stop of the MScraps iNSD Blog / Facebook Train. The theme is "Hello Sunshine" , for my part of the world probably to compensate for the extreme lack of warm weather and to make up for all the rain. At least with these colors you can sit back and dream of better days to come.
Anyway, I hope you are enjoying the ride. :)

I have made a quickpage with some of the goodies in the blogtrain. I sure hope you like it and I would love it if you let me know!

This is my finished page with my DD in the beautiful Menorcan sun.


And this is the quickpage:
You can download it here
or here.
On to the next stop:
You should have come here from Jen's place
And now it's time to continue the ride over to Karen at Aichaku Creates.
If you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of stops at the MScraps forum.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon !!

A Mother's Song
