Florence at night - Tourist trap challenge at DDR

And another challenge... we were told to scrap a night photo... Well, I don't have that many, but I found a beautiful one, taken by my husband in Florence in 2006. I am pretty satisfied with the way the layout turned out ;-)

My golden boy - Brushes challenge at Pickleberrypop

Hey-ho, I've been pretty diligent lately, I am now entering a new challenge, this time with an older layout that I made with my very first kit (Fall Harmony) and that I now improved a little bit. I just felt like doing this because of the nice brushes that I used...

Winter splendour - Scraplift Challenge at DDR

Here is the page that we were supposed to lift: Serenity.

And here is my page, of which I must say in all modesty that I am very proud :-))

The picture was taken by Bogdan on our 2004 winter holiday in the Romanian mountains (Sinaia, cota 2000) and I still find it breathtakingly beautiful.

Color and template challenges on DDR ;-)

As I said, I started to enjoy participating in some of the challenges on Digidesign Resort. Here are two layouts for the January color and the template challenges. I made them with the lovely kit FROZEN by Thaliris (one of my favourite designers) and used two photos of David of last winter. Oh my God, how time flies!

I like your smile by Mamrotka and Cali Designs

Time for some new CT layouts. I chose a gorgeous new collab kit by Mamrotka and Cali Designs, called I like your smile.

For my first layout I chose sweet adorable Mia, the daughter of a good friend of mine. Thanks a lot, Claudi, for letting me use this beautiful photo!
