12 tags of 2013 ~ January

He did it again! His royal craftyness, Tim Holtz, has started another round of 12 tags, one each month. Check out his gorgeous tag for january!

Of course, nothing I make can match Tim Holtz, but I keep on trying.. lol! I love the inspiration I get from his monthly tags, and here's mine for January:

I want to say a big Thank You to Tim for bringing us amazing inspiration every month (or even more often!) - you rock! xx

Thanks for stopping by my place!

SGC #60 ~ Thank you kindly

This fortnight's challenge over at the Southern Girls is all about being thankful. After all the yummy unexpected gifts you may have received over the last month from crafty friends, family and friends we want you to create a project that says "thanks".

This is my thankful contribution...

 I used a gorgeous digital stamp from A Day for Daisies, called Flowers In My Garden in my project.
I decided to make something different this time, and landed on making a painting. It's about 15 x 25 cm, printed on watercolour paper and painted with watercolours.
I made some flowers using the Marianne Design creatables xl die Flowers and Leaf (LR0196).

I hope you'll join our thankful challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

After my house burned down...

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope it's been good to you so far. 
Here's my first journal page this year. It's about looking forward and beyond and moving on when sh%# happens to you..

I've used a lot of different Dylusions stamps, stencils and inks to make this double spread. 
I absolutely LOVE all those gorgeous products!!  
(..I suddenly had a feeling I'm repeating myself here..)


So here's to a fantastic 2013, leave the sh%# from 2012 behind and move on in the new year!
