Happy Birthday - Japan photo album - #214

 Hello everyone,

The new Challenge at Scrapping4funChallenges is live.
1st July is my Birthday and the Birthday of the Scrapping4funChallenges blog.
There will be some prizes for the July Challenge on the Scrapping4funChallenges blog.

Hope you will join in the fun! For my DT creation, I created a small photo album for a special young lady's 16th Birthday. 

We are a group of Ladies "Create Paper Trial friends". Each month we have a lady for whom we created something special. At the beginning of each year, we gave our own theme and the ladies in the group then create something for us. 

Lena's daughter turned 16th and she ask if we can create something with a Japanese theme. I have the lovely Sir Vagabond in Japan scrapbooking paper in my stash and decided to use the paper. The album turned out lovely and Lena's daughter loved it.

Here is the Album.

πŸ’  Scrapbooking paper - Stamperia - Sir Vagabond in Japan

I created this "painting" last year for a Challenge but didn't use the creation. 
I am following a Lady on Youtube and Instagram her name is Michelle the Painter. 
I love the way she teaches her classes and it is easy to follow. When she did this painting I thought I will try it out, and believe me I am not a painter AT ALL!!!
I did struggle with the Mountains. But I think you can see the lovely flowers and ocean.
Thanks, Michelle!
Thank you for your visit!

 Hello everyone,

MMMALTEREDCARDPLAY - Mixed Media Morsels Altered Card Play

We have a Theme, Technique, Add-Ons, and extra credit for our play card.


The theme is Garden

I used a free image I found on Pinterest and colored the lemon tree in.

For the technique, use watercolors

I used Zig watercolor pens to color the lemon tree.

For the add-ons

Add a security envelope and add a tag.

I stamp the little butterfly on the security envelope and cut it out. 

For the extra credit

add a fruit or vegetable. I used the Lemon tree.


I was inspired by a picture from Portugal that I took with the lovely tiles. I create the background on my computer and color the "tiles" with Distress Ink.

Some of my embellishments are cutouts from the 49 and Market - Cottage Life collection.


I will post my video later when I feel better!

Have a great week and thank you for watching!
