U & Me = .......

For quite some time I've been watching the GotMojo blog, these girls rock! Really very talented and very nice challenges. Why I never participated before..... no clue, but this one.... yeah, I had to do it!

We wanted to do something special for Valentines Day. Give you some inspo to get those loved ones scrapped. It's hard not to come up with the same old thing for V-day...So here is something maybe you havent tried yet. Our challenge to you is to scrap a love equation. You+me=happily ever after...Dog+cat= Not meant to be...You get the idea. Something very fun and very easy. We wanna see some creative ones please! Oh the other thing you have to do is use RED. Yes the color. Red just goes with Valentines Day am I right?


So here's what I did, I made a heart out of paper strips, with RED in it (BG Scarlet's Letter) used Prima's and little brads to hold the black wire, thickers for U & Me = and the equation is done with the Dymo and says 20 Years of Marriage! In the corners MM foamstamps and the edges are inked gold but that's hard to see on the picture.

I loved this challenges and you really have to check out their blog, so much fun!


Something else...... I got a very nice award from Elly! Thanks so much girl, I love it, and..... You've made my day with this!! This award has to be passed on to 10 other bloggers.... but the problem is..... I like each and every one of you, so much inspiration, so much creativity... I have to think about this, or... if you like it, just take it and consider yourself nominated!

Hi Marjolein,
Ik heb je 'ontdekt' via Elly haar blog! Hoe is het leven daar in Canada ? Ook winter of is het al zomer ?
Je blog is erg leuk! Zelf kan ik niet scrappen, maar ik sta altijd weer versteld van Elly haar kunstwerkjes :-)

Really gorgeous page, love how you have made the heart.
I am struggling to get back into any crafting especially since AAE has gone. I will have to do paper08 next week & do the two together unless I buck up Sunday. Ive made a few cards for challenges as they are easy & of course they sell to buy more stash! I have over 100 photos to edit of the weekend so I can make a minibook.
