Got MoJo#11 and Paper Aventure'08


The Got Mojo Girls continued their Dr. Seuss theme and this time you had to use one of the quotes they have on their site and you could use one of the bookcovers as sketch or inspiration for you layout. I think everybody liked one of the quotes so much, you see it almost everywhere and yes.... so did I!

If I've used one of the book covers, no clue, I just sat down and did something I liked,..... so, maybe I'm disqualified now.... I don't mind, I had fun! The picture is old (2006) the papers are old (BG Lollipop), but I still like those, so why not use them! Picture is really silly, the journaling explains it!


Photobucket

I also used some felt flowers and blingbling I got from 2 friends in Holland and finally one of the journaling spots I bought a while ago, great stuff that is!

SPRING is the new Paper'08 operation for this week! Elise would like for us to share our opinions about spring, well, that wasn't so hard!

I started with a ribbon flower for which I read the tutorial in the newsletter of Lifetime Moments I got in the mail this morning! That was fun to do, and if you use wider and shorter length of ribbon you will get a more pleated look. The size I used was about 17" and about half an inch wide, so this flower is kind of bulky, but I really like how it came out!

I actually start to like it, had my doubts last week, but I got such nice comments from all of you,... that gave me a sort of "support" to go on with it. It's becoming kind of a weekly diary with my thoughts about a certain topic.

***

At the moment I don't post that often, that has to do with the fact that I'm pretty busy painting. Anouk and I decided to change rooms, so my scraproom is going to be larger and she's closer to the livingroom, which she likes better! I wanted pink... so I bought pink... and it's really, really PINK...... I think I'm scrappin' in Candy Town in a couple of days (if DH is willing to change all the shelves and stuff and leave the bathroom downstairs alone for a bit he, he!) Yesterday night he was such a dear and painted the last wall that desperately needed a second layer, so now I'm going to clean things up there. There's still a desk in the room, that has to go to the basement for a while, and as I'm "home alone" that has to wait till tonight! So, it might be that I'm not online for a day..... or two..... hopefully not, but then you'll know where I am!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Second time....But that's ok.
I just love your ribbon flower! And the photo might be "old'just as the BG, but it is a GREAT LO!
Just a wonderful job!
I believe in fashion: just with clothes....All the "old"things will come back and will get HIP again!
I just LOVE the roses! Also an ol'BG???
Never saw it anywhere!
LOVELY, though!

Really great page, love the paper.
I have so lost my way on the paper 08. Had planned to catch up this weekend but I am suffering with eye strain & it has caused me no end of problems. I did get my commissions completed by staying off the computer & I have also nearly completed 3 layouts I needed a change!!
I spent all alst week off chalenges so i could rest & enjoy my birthday.

Inderdaad een leuke quote. Mooie LO en dat BG Lollipop vind ik ook nog steeds mooi (beter dan wat ze nu maken als je het mij vraagt...). Dat boekje wordt ook leuk en die bloem... moet ik toch ook eens gaan proberen, zo leuk!

eliane said...

wat een leuke dingen maak je weer. Die Lo en die leuke bloem op je PA08.
Laat je ook foto's zien van je nieuwe candyshop ....ehhhh room ???

lauren said...

i'm always excited to see other ppl using my "old faves"--i LOVE pretty much alllllll of basic grey, but lollipop shoppe is particularly cool and SO versatile...as i think you have amply proved here! :)

LOVE your PA page...yet again...i think the way you have set such narrow limits is brilliant. a whole year to focus on your thoughts and your writing? awesome! (you realize of course that someday your girls are going to FIGHT over who gets this?! but...you know...in a GOOD way! lol)
