“Teeny weeny”

I got my gift from Lou in the mail yesterday. She called it “teeny weeny”, but although it’s not a very big object, I consider it a BIG gift! I’m very happy with it! Take a look!

She made me a small box, with my name on it and some sweet flowers. I love the colours!









Back of the box.










It is filled with lots of little buttons in pastel colours. Pink, blue, mint green, yellow…. toooo sweet, and very useful! Thanks Lou, for this wonderful gift! 







In return, I made her this little book. (More pictures of this can be found in my gallery, here.)









The next lay out I made using two challenges.

This was the Scrapping out Loud! challenge:
“This week our challenge to you all is to Mix it UP! by using 3 different patterned papers on you layout!

And “Scrapping the music” choose the song “Dream On”by Aero Smith to work with.

(I showed you where my inspiration for this lay out came from in the former post – so take a look over there again and see if you can tell what parts/ideas I used in this lay out…)
So here’s what I made:

Dream until your dreams come true

Isn’t that the cutest photo?
(Yes, it’s me!)







I cut advertisements out of a very old magazine (1950!) and coloured them with watercolour pencils.








“Use 3 different patterned papers”
I used a lot more (the little butterflies are made out of different patterned paper too!)

And I used some buttons Lou send me right away!




Hand Stitched sentence
(Lyrics “Dream On”)
