The Color Room

YAY! Another week at The Color Room! I LOVE that site! LOL

This is the palette..

The palette this week is so soft and gorgeous and I had a blast creating!

Here is my layout..

My first time playing with buttons!! and I love the effect it has here. Also I love the Websters pages netting. I am not a big flower person, so the netting is perfect for me to layer and create even more dimension in a page. AND the background paper is from the jaw dropping `Spring Market` line from Websters pages. I am very happy with how this layout turned out. 

There is still a GREAT sale going on at, so go take your chance while there is still the 25% off coupon code this week! check out the yourscrapbookstash blog to continu the blog hop we are having untill tuesday feb. 1st. I will be back tomorrow with another chance on winning a $10 dollar gift certificate!

The Color Room

This is palette 42 at the color room. It is absolutely gorgeous and these colors I would have NEVER stucked together on a layout, so thats why I love it even more. I am enjoying myself by playing along with the color room and color combos galore every week. They sure are stretching limits!

Here is the page I completed using the above color scheme:

Its called "blossom, grow, bloom"

I will be back tomorrow with a cute Valentines Tagbook I made!

The Color Room

I created this layout using the color palette from The Color room. The palette this week was fun, bright, girly and well.. absolutely beautiful!!

I am doing it...

yes I am! I am just going to be persistent. 
My word for 2011 is GROW. 

One of the things I need, I want, to grow in is accepting myself. Accepting the way I look, the way I do things, the way people look at me. I want to stop being SO insecure and thats why I decided to join in, not only with project 52, which I will be scrapping every week, but also with project 365.

1 photo a day. A photo of me, of my life. Because I know that I will grow in skills, in creativity and in perseverance during this journey. The most rewarding thing however will be that I can look at myself and accept myself the way I am. I want to stop hiding, I want to stop worrying if people will like me or not. I want to stop looking at myself with such negativity. 
So here is to another fun journey this year. 
I found a HUGE inspiration for me on flickr here:
and although I LOVE the creativity side in this project 365, I am planning on using her poses and ideas for the start since I feel way to uncomfortable doing this LOL. (Although of-course my photos will be nowhere near as gorgeous as hers are, I will definitely be happy doing this with my P&S Sony camera.)

I am starting today; Friday, January the 14th, and will continue to post my photos everyday until  January the 14th in 2012. 

I will leave you with my first photo.

Project 52 - week 1 & 2

I decided to jump in on Project 52 and make a self portrait every week. Yes yes, I know I said that I wouldn't do all these projects that are going on, but I just can't seem to focus on the one little word enough to be satisfied. So, this is a nice thing to follow along with.. it's weekly, so low pressure.. AND I received my gorgeous products from YourScrapbookStash that I really wanted to work with right away. 

Here are my first 2 layouts using my first 2 self portraits.

week 1:
 I used Love Nest from Glitz Designs, pleated ribbon and chipboard postage frame from Maya Road, bird and white cardstock from Artemio (Dutch brand)

week 2:
I used Love Nest from Glitz Designs, stickers from Lovey dovey from Bella BLVD, creme tag (YSS) transparant doilies by Maya Road.

I am excited for this as it feels like all the thought I had in my head to create an art journal/one little word album can perfectly be combined with this Project 52 - weekly portraits.

Color Combo Galore #174

Hello all!

I created my first page of the year! Well, I did create it a week ago, but I am finally able to share it!

Your Scrapbook Stash is sponsoring Color combos Galore this month and of course I had to play! These challenges give me so much inspiration! 

Because of their beautiful bright and girly color palette this month I created the front for my One Little Word / Art Journal.

The designers challenge was to use a special butterfly in your layout so I created this butterfly from a magazine cutout with the word `notes` on it, which of course reflects to whats going to be inside. 

To create this page I used a Sweetness rub on from Pink Paislee on the white cardstock and I stapled the gorgeous netting from Websters Pages on my layout. A photo of some beautiful pink flowers, a polaroid stamp from Crafty Secrets and rub ons from 7gypsies are on the right side. To stick it all together I used white fabric tape and a little word strip I made saying `my heart´. To finish it off I added a folded paper piece on top using the basics collection Manilla from Basic Grey and of course the magazine cut out butterfly.

My word of 2011 : GROW

I have been thinking about my word for 2011. I had a list of 3 words I finally had to choose from and this word is probably fitting best what I want for me in 2011. Grow.

To grow personally on so many levels. I can't wait to start my One Little Word journey.
Now I just have to wait for my album to arrive and to have the time to create with my thoughts, experiences and feelings.

I am ready.

Happy 1-1-2011

Yay! A new year, new chances, new beginnings, new wonders and new memories to be documented every day for the year 2011.

I am excited for this! I am excited for a lot of things that will happen in 2011.
First off I have some excited news to share!
