April challenge

It's time for the monthly challenge at the Hobby Farm blog. This is what I created with the sketch of this month ...

My boys - just before their first ride in the sidecar, April '96.

I created another layout and rotated the sketch for this one. A beautiful b/w picture I got from my mom showing my brothers and me in the summer of 1969.

Maybe you like the challenge to create a layout based on the sketch and send it in before April 30 to hobbyfarm@pandora.be. You might win a coupon of € 20,00 euro which can be spend in the store of Hobby Farm.

There's more news at the Hobby Farm blog like the Scraptastic 2010 event. You will find all the information here.

Thanks again for visiting and wish you all a good week.


Sadly ...

I didn't made the Design Team of Graphic 45, but it's OK though. To the girls who did I want to say lots of success.

This is what I created for the final round. An altered canvas with all the items on it that are my favourite techniques and stuff to work with. So you will find flowers, buttons, bling, ribbon, lace, stitching, distress and spray ink on this hanger. However a picture of me is very unusual.

From Ira I got the Ms Bright Side award. She's also a great fan of Graphic 45 papers and creates the most beautiful projects. Hop over to her blog and take a look. Thanks for this nice gesture Ira, you really surprised me with this.

To pass it on I have to mention 10 things that make me happy, 5 personal facts and also pick 5 bloggers that inspire me a lot. So here I go!

What really makes me smile ...
1. My three men
2. The new house we're building
3. That finally spring is here, I'm not a wintry type at all

6. Scrapbooking; creating layouts, mini's and altered items
7. My work
