January Winner and a challenge for you to join..

Hi everyone,

Sorry I am a little behind in posting the January stash winner..

This past weekend we decided to go camping...It's a spur of the moment thing.

We went camping at a national park, It was very quiet and very wooded. I've never seen so many stars.
The kids had fun but I got sick with a cold. Me and the outdoors don't get along very well...every time we go camping, I get sick.

I think they enjoy burning marshmallows more than anything. We went through a whole bag just watching it burn.

What did you do this weekend?

I hope you also had great time!

Now... let's go to the winner of my January prize!
But first, thank you all for the comments and adding the photo prize on your blog. And thank you for following my blog.

Not very much of a blogger lately but I will keep giving prizes away every month. 

The winner of January prize is....

Want to win? Come back later today ok?

Another challenge for February from Berry71bleu

'White Space'

by Anupama

WhiteSpace is defined as

 the portion of a page left unmarked or blank in visual arts. 
I love using whitespace (or negative space as some may call it) 
in my design as it adds an edge to the page composition! 
I am a trained interior designer and have always been impressed by stark minimalism. I guess that the same design sensibilities have spilt over into my scrapbook pages. 
So here is a chance to come out of your comfort zone!
Go ahead and play with space...
You would be surprised by the results -

Our Sponsor for this month's challenge is UHK Gallery
The winner of our February Challenge will win this My Dear Watson paper collection.

along with 2 other collections - Queen of Hearts & Love is in the Air

We are a team of creative women who cannot imagine their world without paper, glue and creative process. Scrapbooking is our passion. And we love to share our passion with other scrapbookers. For this reason, 7 Dots Studio exists.
Quality of our products is our priority. Each of our collections is made of highest quality materials - thick scrapbooking paper (250gsm), acid-free, lignin-free, archival and highest quality matt stickers. We use materials from leading manufacturers in the paper industry.

Queen of Hearts

Love is in the Air

The 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive the Dreamer Collection from 7 Dots Studio.

Here's what I made with Marivic's gorgeous tag and the 'whitespace' theme -

Marivic's Vintage tag set the mood of the page and I chose to scrap a picture of my mom from the early 1960s when she was a young teen growing up in India.

To balance the ornate tag, I applied glimmermist on the other side with a paint brush and a mask. Script stamps and butterfly washi tape complement the stenciling.  

Instead of treating the chipboard with wet media, I opted for washi tape and chalk edgers to cover the frame.

I can't wait to see what you create!

Not to forget Zeus and Zoe challenge as well

This one is hosted by Gayle Price

Hi every one, Gayle here to present the February Challenge. As if you  didn't already know, it is the month of love.
I am also admitting to you that my birthday falls on February 14th. Yes, I am a Valentines Day baby, made with love.
So, my challenge choice is to create a project about LOVE.................
That gives you lots of different options and interpretations to choose from.
The only stipulation is that the WORD "LOVE" must be obvious on your project. 
It could be Valentined themed or marriage, children, home, animals, food, music, sports,, shoes, chocolate. Whatever your heart tells you to express that is all about LOVE.

In my Zeus and Zoe kit , Marivic included this chipboard house. Oh, what do I do with it !
Well, I think love begins at home. Home is where the heart is, and home is where every one should feel safe and loved, so I have very lovingly decorated this little house and included some family members peeking out through the windows. There is also a doll peeking out the window and her name is Mary, I have had her all my life and I love her too.

Winners Prize

This sweet winners prize consists of:
 Apricot paper and lace roses
Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Worn Lipstick
Kaisercraft 6" paper pad- Secret Admirer
Magnolia paper blooms and a
