So much to tell !!

Well for once I have something else than Violette to show this week! But since I know a lot of friends and family just check the blog for the pictures of Violette, here is the 15 week update, and because I didn't know which one to pick, this week you get two pictures!

She is smiling in the second one, promise, this isn't a cry!

But now for the scrpabooking. I was lucky enough to spend the day at our local crop on Saturday and I had a really productive day! First we made a page with the lovely Lisa at Artfull Scrapbooking. I always love what Lisa does but it takes me a while to like what I do when I follow her instructions. But this time, I loved it straight away. The page didn't take half an hour to finish which is super quick for me. It is bright, funky, messy, I love it.

The second page I made, didn't quite turn out how I wanted it to be. But still I like it. Clean, simple and girlie.

Now, the third page I made, took a lot longer to finish. I wanted to follow a sketch I found at   Creative Scrapper

I knew I wanted to paint my circle and found the perfect colour thanks to my lovely friend Rosemary but then, I don't know, it just didn't work. I had painted in on a white cardstock, that another friend had kindly given me, but I wasn't happy with it. I continue my page on Sunday, well, in fact started all over, with the kids around painting too. It got really messy and we had to use kitchen roll to clean everything and that's when I got another idea, and somehow, I just looovve this page, Grungy, very yellow and definitely messy!

This page also links to the Scrap friends challenge that encourage you to use this colour palette:

So what do you think, three very different pages but which one is your favourite?! have a good week.




  1. Wonderful smile! Makes me smiling too! Have a great day!!

  2. Violette is so stinkin' cute! That smiling picture made me laugh. All the layouts are so fun, but I think I like the 3rd one the best. Love the grunginess and what you did with the paper towel, and the journaling is super sweet.

  3. I love the yellow messy page! really gorgeous! thanks for playing along with us at ScrapFriends!!

  4. Glad you linked up to us at Scrap Friends...really like your circle work on this page:):)
