My giveaway:  HERE!

It must be my favourite day of the week! All my laundry is done, my lessons are prepared and I can enjoy my boys and work a bit in the garden which is what I am going to do today! October will mark our third year in our new build and there is still so much to do. The garden is big and needs a lot of landscaping and we wanted to do it all by ourself which means it is taking longer than I expected. So today you won't find me in my scraproom but in the garden. 
Today I wanted to show you a layout I made for my last class at My Scrapbook nook. I decided to use Pinterest as inspiration and found this piece.
Mon jour préfére: le dimanche. En ce dimanche vous me trouverez dans mon jardin!! Mais j'ai aussi une page à montrer faite pour mon dernier class sur My Scrapbook Nook. Un cours basé sur une inspiration Pinterest! 
Et puis pour terminer un petit tuto pour faire des embellissements structurés.

And here is my layout:

 Today I also have a little tutorial up on the SGD blog. It is about making little layered embellishments.

I'll be back tomorrow with a 40 minute layout!

SwissGirl blog hop open until Sunday here.
My big giveaway .... here.

I sometimes feel I can't create any more. No more ideas, nothing! I still yearn to make something but need  a kick boost. Yesterday was such an evening. So .... I took out a kit (September main kit from SC) and gave myself an hour and no more and this is what I made. I am not 100% satisfied but it was a fun process. 
Un petit coup de blues sur le front créatif hier, pourtant l'envie était là. Je me suis lancée un petit défi. J'ai pris le kit de Septembre de SC et je me suis donnée une heure et voici le résultat. 


The end ... (and a PRIZE!)

SwissGirl blog hop is still open here.

My Scrapbook Nook will be gone in a few days. It is so hard to let go of this amazing place. Saturday I'll be posting my last class on the forum and the blog and I have made something a bit different. I'll see you on Saturday for a final tribute. 
I did make another layout using the September kit. I love they way it turned out and I even love the flowers and I am so not a "flower on layout" girl. 
Voici une petite page faite avec le dernier kit de My Scrapbook Nook. Je posterai mon dernier "class" ce samedi.

If you haven't noticed I am getting close to 300 followers. So ... I am having a giveaway. I'll be sending a big pizza box filled with scrap goodies to a lucky girl. All you need to do is become a follower here and on my facebook page and leave a comment at the bottom of this post by next week Thursday. The products I'll be sending you are all products I LOVE but that I will never be able to use because I have so many of them. Anyone can enter!
Mon blog a presque 300 followers. Pour fêter ceci, j'ai décidé de faire un petit "giveaway". Une boîte à pizza remplie de produits scrap que j'adore mais dont je possède des doubles même parfois des triples exemplaires. Tout ce que vous devenez faire c'est de me suive (mon blog et ma page facebook). Je tirai une gagnante au sort la semaine prochaine!

SwissGirl Blog hop ................... click here

I just LOVE their products and I am beyond thrilled to be on their team for another year. Two layouts (with my spotlight) were featured on their blog on Friday! I used one of my favourite collections: Dear Lizzy. Both have lots of layers, something I really love at the moment. I had so much fun making these and they are now part of my treasured memories.
Aujourd'hui je vous montre deux pages faites pour mon introduction sur le blog de American Crafts. Je me réjouis de travailler avec eux cette année. Deux pages presque 100% Dear Lizzy!

I don't have the time for the inlinkz links this time but you can find all Dear Lizzy products on the American Crafts website here.

Lilith (that is ME!)

Leave a comment here by September 30th and you might win an awesome stamp set. 

Here is a little card I made using one of SGD stamp sets. I love the tiny texts! I use them for journalling but they are also fabulous sentiment stamps for cards as well. This one comes from the Cars and Balloons set:

See you tomorrow with some American Crafts projects!
Happy Sunday

You anchor me back down ...

22 September 2012

These are words from the song ANCHOR by Mindy Gledhill. I ADORE her music and her style. She is such a winderful artist and her music is enchanting and inspirational. Here is the song in question. It's one of those songs I listen to at least 10 times a day and this one is so special because I was touched by the lyrics.
Les paroles d'une chanson qui m'a touchée! J'adore cette artiste!

When all the world is spinning around
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down 

I am nearly world renowned
As a restless soul who always skips town
But I look for you to come around
And anchor me back down 

There are those who think that I am strange
They would box me up and tell me to change
But you hold me close and softly say
That you wouldn't have me any other way 

When people pin me as a clown
You behave as though I am wearing a crown
When I am lost I feel so very found
When you anchor me back down 

When all the world is spinning around
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down 

My children, husband and friends are my anchors and I am grateful I have them. If you have some time just click play and enjoy!

Here is one of my anchors. My sweet Elouan. It was his birthday on Thursday and I just can't believe how fast time has gone. He will always be my little one.

His smile make my heart burst with happiness and when I see it I know I am complete. My kids have made me who I am and I love how they teach me to be a better person. Here is a layout I made about his smile. I think I have lots of layouts about my kids' smiles but they are such a happy bunch so why not make lots of layouts about their gorgeous grins ;)
