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!

Flower girl and Maid of Honor gift boxes #212

Hi everyone,

The new Challenge at Scrapping4funChallenges is live. The theme is Anything Goes.
My daughter is getting married on the 11th of June and I created a lot of wedding decor. Here are two boxes that I created for the Maid of Honor and the flower girl. My daughter will place some nice gifts in the boxes. I also have two boxes for the Bridesmaids, I will post them in another post.  

Normally I create my own boxes from scratch but I was so busy and then I got sick (you know with what)! At this moment I had an infected right ear and the nerve in my ear got damaged. I am on high cortisone and will be going for a small Operation on the 9th of May 2022. I really hope my ear will be ok because we are flying to South Africa on the 4th of June for the wedding.

Here are the gift boxes.

Art Journal Cover - Bible Art Journal- #208

Hello everyone,

I am wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, and creative 2022. I hope and pray this year that this madness in the world will stop.

We are starting off this year with a Challenge from Scrapping4funChallenges. All Scrapping4funChallenges for 2022 will be monthly Challenges. 

Challenge 208 theme is 
Use a Song, Poem, or Quote on your creation.
(You do not have to use the whole Song, Poem, or Quote).

I have created a Bible Art Journal for 2022. This is the Cover.
I used music notes with the beautiful song Amazing Grace for the background behind the door.
The Bible Verse Isaiah 45: 2-8 I place at the back of the cover.

I have created a video and used different mediums on my Bible Art Journal cover.
I placed a little doggy in the Window.
I am so excited for this year we are receiving our little puppy in February and we can not wait. After 16 years without a housepet, my husband and I can not wait.
His name will be Milo and he is a Shih TZU.
I will place pictures as soon as we receive Milo.

Milo will be 3 months in February then we can go and fetch him at the lady who is breeding with the Chi Tzu puppies. She is sending weekly pictures and videos for us. So sweet. Here is a picture of Milo at this moment.
