I lost my mojo for making LO's a bit...
This is my first LO since July and I'm not to happy about it. But than again, I started, so that's something.
This is my Grandma, on her birthday, a year before she past away.
I used the awesome Swirlydoos November kit and the design is by Begahuna.
These are my DN and his girlfriend photographed by my DH.
The pp's I used are from Paper Studio, 7 Gypsies, & BG.
The texture fades and the flower die are from TH, the tag is from Tattered Angels, the pearl swirl and the little flowers are from Prima.
This is my entry for "I'm a litte vintage" challenge @Swirlydoos
The photo was taken by my DD, he was the most wonderful father, but he didn't know how to make photo's... LOL
On the photo you can see my DS and me @our home.
The LO was based on my DS LO "Christine". Thank you Sis for the inspiration!
My dad always called me 'little monkey' (Dutch translation: apie), so that's the title.
The LO is a lift from GabrielleP's 'Style Baby'.
I used the TH stack 'Retro Grunge' and some TH texture fades and the Elegant Flourishes die. The metal is from Ten Seconds. The borderpunches are from Martha Stewart and Fiskars.
As some of you might know, I'm a huge Tim Holtz fan!
On his site he added some photo's of the most awesome workshop he thought in Scotsdale.
It's called Artful Curio (check it out: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/05/index.html)
It's SO INSPIRING I just had to make my own. So I took a wooden box and his awesome new pp's and just 'enjoyed the journey'..
This is the result.
I used my new TH texture fades, FUN FUN FUN! (Thanks Bonnie for send them over so quickly!!)
The butterflies I used are from Cuttlebug, the pp's are from this month Autebellum Beauty kit from Swirlysdoos.
And do you notice?? No flowers this time!! LOL
This is a photo of my DS Daryl and his girlfriend Emma.
The two of them taking photo's underwater in my DS swimingpool!
This is my enty for the SGC Round Robin Challenge @ Swirlydoos.
It's an easy design, but I tried to add a couple of nice techniques.
I used the new TH pp's and most of the embellies are from Swirlydoos.
The embossing plates are from Cuttlebug, the ink I used is Broken China (TH), the stamps are from various brands.
Always when I'm not that inspired I go to her site ( http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.com) and I always find a LO of hers that inspires me 'to the max'. This time I lifted her gorgeous LO 'Natural'.
Thanks Gaby for sharing your work!
The photo is made by my DH in March this year.
It's my DN Stephanie, wearing her first Armani.
I made this LO for my Sisters Challenge SGC May Use your scraps @ Swirlydoos. The challenge was to make a background pp using only scraps.
The vine is from Prima and the flowers are handmade.
The stamps and ink (broken China) are from Tim Holtz, the mask and glimmermist (Caribbean Blue) are from Tattered Angels.I painted the gost letters with the colour lagoon (Making Memories).

The BG pp came with the Swirlydoos Park Avenue kit. The other pp's are scraps.
The metal pieces are embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing plates and in the corner I used some texture gel which I painted with 3 different colours (Making Memories).
The small metal tags are little projects I did when I was visiting my sister (playing with metal, alcohol ink, texture past & perfect pearls).
The metal butterfly (Michaels) I painted with the colour 'lagoon' from making memories.

I made this LO for MandaK's challenge @Swirlydoos. I started with white cardstock and went a bit 'over the top' stamping, masking, inking, painting and misting ... LOL
I used a lot of my new Tim Holtz stamps, masks, Distress Ink pads and crackle paint. Also some Tattered Angels Glimmer mists and got all dirty! Yipee!!
This is my 5th LO with the gorgeous Swirlydoos kit From Venice with Love.
This photo of my sister was taken by my DH last spring.

The chipboard ornament is from Creative Imaginations (from Venice, with Love embellies kit).
The mask is Tim Holtz's as the letters, stamps and spinners.

My DH took the photo (don't tell anyone, it's 'bad' for his image...LOL)and my sis and my loved it so much, that we needed a print to scrap it.
This is my third LO with the wonderful Swirlydoos With Love from Venice kit. A very simple design, but the pp's and the embellies are so beautiful, that I don't think it need anything more (for a change LOL)
This is my 4th LO with the gorgeous Swirlydoos Winter Wonderland kit. The photo is of my sweet little niece Anne.
The pp's in this kit are so beautiful, that they don't need much except a good pic.
The handmade roses are made with the stamps from Wendy Vecchi, the other purple flower I embossed with purple ink and holographic embossing powder. The borderpunch is Martha Stewart's and the quote stamp is from Tim Holtz.
My third LO made with the beautiful Swirlydoos Winter Wonderland kit.

This is my dog Marcus, he is the sweetest dog EVER!
My DH made this photo a couple of weeks ago when it started snowing here in Holland.
I saved this photo for my new Swirlydoos kit to arrive.
Yesterday the kit arrived and I coudn't wait to get started with this awesome kit!
Ok, I know the design is very simple, but the pp's are so beautiful, that I thought it didn't need much more than this. So check out the swirlydoos site for more info about the kit (www.swirlydoos.com).
