Marshmallow cake and canoe !!

Since it is raining outside and I will soon need a canoe to leave the house...

(And yes I know, I need to do some weeding but the chance to go outside looks remote !!), Amelie and I made a lovely chocolate and Marshmallow cake...

As you can see there is not much left ( diet will have to start tomorrow !! )

Yesterday, I had the chance to spend the whole day scrapbooking with my friends. The lovely and very talented Lisa, taught us through a messy and colourful lay out. As usual, it took me a while to get into the mood and I even had to trash my first attempt, but with perseverance and faith ( and very encouraging words from Lisa !! ) I kept at it and finished a page, very different from my usual style but ever so great ! I really love it, I love the colours and the texture. I mostly love the idea that scrapbooking isn't just about buying the newest products and embellishments but mostly about creating your own art and using plain paper. So here is my page...

I also got the chance to make a page for the Studio Challenges ( first time ! ) where you had to scrap a page using a song title. I found this cute picture of my sister feeding me when I was little and I had to use the title. We Are Family by Sister Sledge.

I love the page, I like the journaling and the colours, I hope my sister likes it too !!

Well, I shall go and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy scrapping every one.

  1. Anne, I love the page about you and Gwen! Just amazing!!! And truthful! Have a nice rest of the weekend. We are enjoying a real summer here, even it is the end of April it is so hot here.

  2. Great layouts! I love the journalling on the second one and you used a great song title! Thanks very much for joining in with us at The Studio, hope you will play again soon!

  3. Beautiful pages, I love all the ink and paint on the 1st and your journalling down the side of the page on the 2nd - great photo and I love the song choice :)

  4. Hi Anne!!! Thank you so much for your nice comment on my page, I appreciate it! Your work is excellent and I'm very glad that you like mine! You too have your way with colours!!

    PS. Thank you for reminding me about MT St Michel, you are absolutely right - I know it's a monastery but it looks like a castle so much that I keep forgetting. I think that in my dreams I'd want it to be my castle.. :)

    1. LOVE your take on this Anne. You took the LO to a whole new level : )
      Gold star!!!!
      I did text you back but not sure if you got it. I have someones green mist. Maybe I can pop over for a coffee and we'll do a swap??
