LGS Jan week 3 sketch: a star is born

Happy Wednesday (hump day) to all creative minds! 
January is almost over… already !?! Going back to work didn't give as much time to scrap as I did during the Holidays but I couldn't resist this sketch : January Week 3 LGS Sketch Challenge which was created by Bev Code
What drew me immediately to it were those rick-rack elements… I love how they frame the pictures and I had this turquoise ribbon which was perfect !  I dug out pictures taken in 2004 when my goddaughter was born, and made this sweet layout using prima flowers and LilyBee design papers and sticker, letters were originally white (American craft) but I used a black sharpie to change the colour.
My layout: a star is born

Thank you very much Paper Issues and Stuck!?

In december 2013, I was one of the super lucky winner of a drawing on the Stuck!?Sketch blog  December 1st 2013 challenge:

The first sponsor was Paper issues  who offered a $20.00 gift certificate to their store!
I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I saw my name as the winner, and immediately contacted the Stuck! enthusiastic team and went browsing.

Here is what I purchased and received today, in a beautiful wrapping (top left picture) with a personalized note  (bottom right picture) 

Thank you so much Paper Issues and Stuck!

L7F défi B de Décembre: Alice Trottine

I had fun with the December challenge B from Lucky 7 Factory : using sequins ! They seem to be everywhere these days and I must say they add quite a nice touch to layouts. I used Bazzil cardstock and 2 brands of patterned paper for this layout: Lucky 7 Factory “Automne en folie” and American Crafts Dear Lizzy . Amongst the embellies, you can see two  sequins companies : Prima and ArtMinds.

Here is the page I made : Alice Trottine

This picture was taken in 2007 and I stumbled on it while cleaning up some of my scrapbook papers… I like when that happens, don’t you ?
