My lucky day!!

The crop at Scrapadilly was so fun and inspirational! The games and challenges were fun to do, not to mention the friendly bantering between the contestants!

I was lucky enough to win the second prize and i tote-ally love it!

One of the challenges was to "scraplift from someone in the gallery" and another was to create a shaped card! I did the reindeer card at a crop at The Scrapping Bug!

I love taking part in crops as they tend to take me beyond the "norm" of scrapbooking!

Summer Weddings!

Ever since i developed a passion for scrapbooking my other crafts have taken a seat at the back of the bus! I was so grateful when my friend asked me to create a bouquet for her daughters wedding! I added the yellow flower to symbolize friendship! In any relationship friendship is important! I wish Tammy a day filled with all the blessings love can hold!

Glue with a twist!

Have you hugged your glue today??? lol !! My UHU Glue n Twist ( http://www.saunders-usa.com/uhu/ saved the day for me!

I was asked to make some treats that would fit in with a Canada Day special celebration!

Bobbi-lynn from Scrap Central ( http://www.scrapcentral.ca/ ) and her hubby Derek renewed their vows for their 13th Canada Day celebration!

I needed something that would hold the treats and a plain old box wouldn't do, so i crimped some cardboard to cover the sides and needed some sturdy glue to hold it all together!

UHU GLUE n TWIST to the rescue! A twist of the cap and you can spread a path of glue or twist back and you can apply a fine line or a dot! The pinwheels and flowers were applied with a dot of glue!

I made the cute little hearts with white bells in the center! I also made red mapleleafs, white maple leafs and chocolate mapleleafs and stacked them in little cello bags! i also made chocolate blossoms and twisted them with waxed candy wrap, and they resembled a Kiss or a Hug! i made them a chocolate greeting card as well! My chocolate factory is closed for the summer now! It's way to hot to create chocolate treats!
Wishing you all a Happy Summer! Any special plans?
