Creative Easter

I hope everybody had a great easter! We hadn´t very much dates so I relaxed a lot (which I sooo needed) and scrapped. *woohoo*

I started with two LOs. Both were for challenges at Scraplove.

The first challenge was to scrap about yourself. Ok, I´m doing that often so that wasn´t a big challenge for me.

I used my new elements grungeboard for the first time and also my crackle paint and I love both! I´m sure I´ll use them more often now. Here´s a close-up so you could see the crackles better:

The second challenge was to use bling. Well another thing that´s not so hard to me! *lol* But I did a LO I wanted to do for a while now. It´s about a stamping-convention in germny last year. The most visit shop there was Magnolia from Sweden. I *needed* to buy something there too!

I knew I wanted to use one of their cute stamps on the page too. I was a little afraid to use a stamp image on a LO but it was fun and I´m happy I did it! I´m sure I´ll do it again! And I already have an idea in mind! :o)

Another project I did is this album. It was the Creating Keepsakes-Kit of the month in January. I fell in love the moment I saw it. And I was lucky enough to get one! I also did the Big Picture-class that was offered for this kit. Aren´t the papers and the embellishments awesome? And look at that cool tinbox!

It´s an album telling our love-story so far. I journaled a lot on the papges to tell our story and it was really fun. And the best of it is that Andi journaled too! Yes, he wrote his view on our story on some of the pages too. Isn´t that something special? And believe me: he did an AWESOME job!!!

Ok, we need to do our love-songs-cd and put it in here but the album´s done and I´m really happy I did this! It was so much fun and I think it´s a great memory! And I still have two more pages and some papers left to add something to the album! And I think this one is ok for another challenge at Scraplove: use someone else´s handwriting. ;o)

Have a great day! - Coni

You have found a great guy that wants to do some of the journaling. I have one of those guys too :D

Thanks for sharing! The album looks great.

Where do you buy these packages? I like them too, but they always seem to be out.

@Katarina: I bought it from Lisa Bearsons webside. But these kits of the month are always sold out really fast!
