You are our jar of happiness...

smallRaquelsChristmas MoodBoard

What beautiful inspiration!!
This is the Mood Board over at JOT, & it is all so soft & scrummy...just like my beautiful little grand daughter Pippi...

So I had fun playing round with H2O's, inks, my fabulous giant roller doodle, water colour, gesso, & lovely embellies & created this page....titled 'UR So Gorgeous'.
Some blingy bling & alphas from Naomi, ticket from Jane, butterfly from Karen - a wonderful stash of goodies for this lucky scrapbooker with generous friends.

And a feather....
Pippi certainly is our 'jar of happiness' - we are devoted grandies!!
Thank you for a wonderful challenge.

Christmas = lots of happy things

Here is my take on Decembers' challenge at ARTastic is a bit different than usual...
 I used a number of the words to create this page about some homemade Christmas cards I have created.
It is based on this wordle
The idea this month is to let a word or words inspire you to create your page.  You don't have to use the actual word on your project (unless you want to) but please let us know in your post which word(s) you used as inspiration and why.
Pop on over & join in this stress free Christmas challenge -
you have until 11.55pm on January 5th 2014

This challenge this time is lifting Magda Mizera's  gorgeous page

So here is my page using the dearest little poppet that is my beloved grand daughter Pippi.

I have used some lovely Kaisercraft papers from my friend Liz, a butterfly from my friend Mitzi, some bandage from the cupboard that I inks & shredded, some Prima packaging that was just waiting to be used & washi...I am really happy how this page turned out!!

This has been a lovely challenge - thanks Scrap-lifting girls!
