My Creative Sketch: OCT 27th 03

That most awaited, anticipated, longed for moment: first baby scan, first encounter…
I will always remember the day I received the email with this picture attached. I was right in the middle of moving houses, I stopped everything to just stare at it… and print it !

Title is: October 27th 03
(You guessed it: the date the picture was taken!)

The above is my  layout inspired by this lovely sketch by Liz Chidester. You can find it on My Creative Sketch website here:

STUCK!? sketch : CBS BEST (mine too)

Welcome back creative minds ! I made another layout about my trip to New York in September of 2013. The epicurean that I am had to taste a piece of New York cheesecake while I was there, so I did a research on the web and found an article of CBS voted best New York cheesecake.
Looking at the different addresses, I found this little place not to far from the Metropolitan museum where we had planned to go as well: Two Little Red Hens.
It delivered what was promised
Yummy sweet fluffy cheesecake… if you ever go to New York: try it out !

Here is my layout : CBS BEST

Stuck!? February 1st challenge: Rébi cachée (derrière ses soeurs)

This picture was taken on May 18th 2006, some 12 hours before my brave and strong sister gave birth to twin girls. Her older daughter (Rébi) cuddled against her on the sofa, it almost seemed as if she was hiding behind her sisters... Therefore the title: "Rébi cachée"

Here is my layout: Rébi cachée

And here is the beautifull sketch which (finally) gave me the spark to use this picture, from Stuck!?Sketch February 1st. Go check out the new challenge and amazing prices they drae each month.

LGS Jan week 3 sketch: a star is born

Happy Wednesday (hump day) to all creative minds! 
January is almost over… already !?! Going back to work didn't give as much time to scrap as I did during the Holidays but I couldn't resist this sketch : January Week 3 LGS Sketch Challenge which was created by Bev Code
What drew me immediately to it were those rick-rack elements… I love how they frame the pictures and I had this turquoise ribbon which was perfect !  I dug out pictures taken in 2004 when my goddaughter was born, and made this sweet layout using prima flowers and LilyBee design papers and sticker, letters were originally white (American craft) but I used a black sharpie to change the colour.

Thank you very much Paper Issues and Stuck!?

In december 2013, I was one of the super lucky winner of a drawing on the Stuck!?Sketch blog  December 1st 2013 challenge:

The first sponsor was Paper issues  who offered a $20.00 gift certificate to their store!
I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I saw my name as the winner, and immediately contacted the Stuck! enthusiastic team and went browsing.

Here is what I purchased and received today, in a beautiful wrapping (top left picture) with a personalized note  (bottom right picture) 

Thank you so much Paper Issues and Stuck!
