  • I cut out the big swirl from the backside of the paper and placed it vertically....
  • The rest of the paper was used for the right side of the layout....

  • The two cute resins designed by Ingvild Bolme were colored in with Copic Markers.
  • Coloring in the resins with Copic Markers work perfectly for me. It`s easy, handy and quickly!
  • "Say it in Crystals Swirls" were cut into small ones and used to decorate the flowers all over the page.

  • The photo of my daughter was taken last Summer on her 5th birthday. The dress she`s wearing inspired me to to create this layout :-))))

Well,  to finish this post I`d love to share a few photos I chose randomly from a great event that took place in Ghent, Belgium last weekend (5-6-7 October) - The Scraptastic Event. I went there for three days and I had a great time. And Yes I met some great people :-)
  • This is the place where all the fun took place - Flanders Expo
  • Me, giving Make & Takes on Saturday.....playing with Donna Downey`s Canvas ATCs
  • And of course hubby joined me and we went sightseeing in Ghent on Sunday. It was a great sunny day and we even scored ;-) a photo of us.... both ;-)

Hope you enjoyed today`s post!
Have a great day & as always -----> Thank you for visiting me !!!
