Down by the Sea 

The picture is on of our handsome son on the beach {back in 2010} building a sandcastle for mom & dad to live in. When he is concentrating on something he always sticks his thong out of his mouth just like his mom lol.... I had a blast working on this layout.

A Layout & Card for ** Imaginarium Designs** + a little treat for all of you who comment :-)))

Hi everyone,
Are you having a fun day??? For me Thursday is the longest day in the week because I work from 9 in the morning till 9 in the evening but hey I'm not complaining ;-)  
Today I would like to share a layout & card I made for the wonderful Imaginarium Design.....

I really love the new designed words by Imaginarium Designs it looks like they are handwritten which I totally think is awesome. They also designed some uber cute doilies. 
I recently was asked to be on the Tresors de Luxe first blog Design Team so you would see more lace on my work than before.

Enjoy This Moment:

For this layout I used the gorgeous new "Coffee in the Arbour" collection by Maja Designs and some amazing lace and flowers from Tresors de Luxe.
This picture was taken in Spain where we went on holiday in 2010 I love old buildings (castles).
The doily I painted and embossed and I layered some papers on top of for the tittle work I just painted it gold.

 code: IDA0009 RRP
code: IDA0010 RRP
I also used some new releases.
And now for my card: 

Thank You:

For this card I used the gorgeous "Botanical Tea" collection by Graphic 45 still love that collection so much!
This was a card I didn't finish jet last month and it was laying around asking me to finish it hihih well yes paper collections talk to me **grin** 

 I inked all the pieces with some green, white and gold ink and the words I embossed! 

code: IDDD0011
 code: IDS0031 RRP
 code: IDW0015 RRP
code: IDDD0003 RRP

I hope you all enjoyed my post today....
I have a little TREAT for the ones who comment on the ID post six Imaginarium Design pieces ready to use (I had a birthday giveaway in April but nobody claimed their prize up to 3 times) I will announce the winner here on my blog on the 10th of July!

Embellishments Suitcase for BoBunny!

Happy Wednesday,
Today I would like to share a Off The Page project I made for the magnificent BoBunny...
My teammie Solange Marques and I had the same idea we both made a suitcase all with the gorgeous 
**Somewhere In Time** collection....

 This is what I made:

I finally had a purpose for a suitcase I had in my stash for a while now, I was waiting for the right collection.
I bought this suitcase at a flea market for 2 euro's (it was so ugly *grin*) My husband changed the handle for me which I bought at a hardware store just for this suitcase.

First I used gesso for the whole suitcase to give it a softer look, then I tore all the paper in little pieces and just randomly stuck it on there with Glue N' Seal (matte finish). When is was all dry I finished it off with a little more gesso. The backside is just with the torn paper as I will use this laying down anyways.

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Somewhere In Time, Antiquity, Beauty, Chrononaut, Balloons, Elegance
/Somewhere In Time
Double Dot Paper: Shadow Vintage
Buttons: Somewhere In Time
Brads: Somewhere In Time
Jewels: Somewhere In Time
Noteworthy: Somewhere In Time
Kraft Wood: Mustaches, Gears
Kraft Gift Bag: Quatrefoil
Stamps: Wall To Wall Textures, Stitches

I really loved working on this suitcase hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday.
