Scrapfriends and Bird is the Word

Hi peeps,

For my give-away go ====> here <====
Happy newyear,,,,,I hope 2013 will be full off luck, happiness, health and creativity for all of you!!!
For us it's another 4 and a half hours full off laughter....and then ending 2012. It was a rollercoaster ride for me I sure hope 2013 will be better. And you know "what" I know it will be!!!
Tomorrow I will share some happy mail with you... yeah.....

Yesterday I created a lo that totally is me 'being' creative *grin*
I'm a guest designer (in Januari) for an amazing "Dutch" challenge blog called Dutch Dares they are challenging us to make a lo that's based on what we "Don't" want to chance in 2013 something you want to keep the same. ( I hope it's oke that I post this tonight ).
For me that's easy that's why my lo is called *I will always cherish...my 'spirit' to create*for this lo I used different kinds of papers like (mia) from Crate Paper and the background is from My Minds Eye....I also used a stamp from Bo Bunny (the dagonfly) and a stamp from Prima Marketing. I so so so love the pretty swirl from ZVA and that pretty feather is from another amazing company "Imaginarium Designs".
The feather is painted with a pink paint and then with some crackle paint and some white glimmermist!

For this lo I'm also entering in two challenges from two amazing challenge blogs named:
Scrap Friends it's for there stunning COLOUR PALETTE CHALLENGE #8:

I thought this was so lovely......
Bird is the Word it's for there word Create and with this lovely sketch:
also very pretty.....
I really hope you like my lo.....

And again I have to tell you that the picture is not so good because of the bad weather....I hope I can take a better picture soon
Here a couple of close-ups:

Hope you enjoyed looking at my lo......have a wonderful evening you all!
I will be back with another post tomorrow xox

Love Amy

Bo Bunny's December Challenge..always love those.

Goodevening to you all,
For my give away go ====>here<=====

Today I want to share a lo I have made for the wonderful challenge at Bo Bunny's Blog for this challenge you had to use a stunning image for inspiration and then create to your heart's desire...and wow did I do just that!! This is the amazing image:
Gorgeous right??? Love those houses...
My inspiration came from those houses....it made me think about my house and my county...so I came up with the plan to scrap a gorgeous picture of where I live (Holland) in the snow...
For this lo I used the stunning "Powder Mountain" collection!
The most logical way to used this image is to look at the colors and pitched roofs was my guess! But I didn't do that at all I made it more my own.....I did a lot of stamping, sewing, painting which was so cool to do.
And I LOVE how it turned out "hope you do too".

I love the way Agnieszka made her lo and that picture is so cool...
Thank you girl for the inspiration.
For this lo I also used Gabrielle Pollacco her felt flower technic which is so beautiful thanks Gabi.

Hope you enjoy looking at my lo as much as I loved making it!!! 

Here is my take on the Bo Bunny December Challenge:

 and now my close-ups:

This lo was also based on the super gorgeous sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch where I enterd twice this month just because i loved it so much:
This is the amazing sketch by Nadia Cannizzo:

Only it turned out more of a full lo without much with space *grin*  hope                                that's oke                                                 
Thank you Bo Bunny for hosting such a great challenge..... you really get everything out of people.               
I bet it's great to be on your design team???
Hope you all have a very blessed evening.....off to bed now as it's 1.12 at night...

Love Amy
