New challenge at Scrappassion!

Can you believe it is December already? Where has 2010 gone? Today is the 1st of December and it is my 40th birthday! It seems time goes faster the older I get ... or am I really showing my age now? LOL ...

Anyway ... a new month also means a new challenge at Scrappassion. From January 2011 the Scrappassion blog will go international and I cannot wait to see gorgeous work coming in from all over the world! But .. .for this month the challenge for all the Dutch and Belgian girls out there is this:

Make something for your home; your project can be anything but a layout or card.

How easy is that! This is the clock I made for our daughter Emma. She loves bright and bold colours just like me!


This is what the other girls have made...

Where are the layouts for the Scrappassion Challenge for this month?

It is the 23rd of November and we have only received FOUR entries this month at the Scrappassion Challenge Blog. We'd love to see some more gorgeous layouts coming in! All you have to do is scrap a photo of yourself and describe ten things about you! Come on ... you got until the end of the month!

'Butterfly'; a card inspired by my trip to Paris ...

I just spend a few days in Paris with an Australian friend of mine, who surprised me with a visit for my 40th birthday! Those surprises are the best! I hadn't seen her since we moved to Europe in June 2009, so there was a lot of catching up to do!

Paris is just wonderful and I surely loved wondering the streets whilst chatting to my friend. Most papers from Graphic 45 have a French feel and therefore I just had to make a card featuring one of those vintage images! Click HERE to see step-by-step instructions and photos!

Photo Shoot with Ria !

On Monday I went to a glamour photo shoot with a beautiful friend of mine, Ria. She is just beautiful inside and out! We had a wonderful day together. I went home with a dozen wonderful photos, which I wanted to scrap straight away! Last weekend I made a sketch and I decided to create a layout using my own sketch:

New month new challenge at Scrappassion!

It is the first day of a new month and therefore I would like to announce the new challenge at Scrappassion! This time it was my turn to come up with the challenge and this is what you have to do:

Create a layout about yourself. You have to use a picture of yourself and '10 things about you'.
Instead of thinking of 10 things myself, I actually asked my Facebook friends to describe me in one word. I got quite a few responses and I promised I would use all of them on my layout. Using Wordle I created the mix of words as shown on the layout below. So ... this is me according to my Facebook friends:

The challenge is open for all Dutch and Belgian girls. From January 1, 2011 the challenges will be open to everyone, because Scrappassion is starting an international challenge blog too! If you are interested in the international blog, make sure you become a follower. You will find the international blog HERE. We are still looking for Design Team members, so make sure you check the blog for all the details.
