Winter LO on sketch 232

Hi everyone!
I can´t believe how often i posted lately. But don´t "worry", i will be very lazy for the next 3 weeks instead, i will be on vacation, so not too many posts from me.
Anyway, yesterday i was in the mood for a LO, so i made one with the pictures that i took this winter, i still have, so i thought i should use them, despite the fact that spring and Easter are coming. You will...forgive me for that, huh :-)?
I made a card too 2 days ago, but first the LO. With this one i will take part in the actual challenge at Pencil Lines, it´s my first time with them :):
I love the glittered flowers at the bottom :).
And some close-ups:
Did you notice the glittery title? And the journaling? It says like this "The winter of 2011 was very snowy. We all love snow until we have to shovel it away" - true, hey :D?
And here is the sketch:
I used patterned paper from Dovecraft, fabric alphabet stickers white and glittered, cardstock for the flowers and that would be all i guess. 
I know i did not 100% respect the sketch, but i like the result anyway, it has so much dimension given by the flowers, i love it (the modesty in me :))).
Anyway, let´s have a great weekend! 
I have such lovely time ahead, can´t wait to get home :).

A scrapbook tote for my lovely niece

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday :)!
Hope you had a nice week and the weekend will be fantastic ;). Here it's been an interesting week but something very nice and long expected lies in front of us: a 3-weeks Easter vacation home in Romania. I can not wait!!! To take as many photos as possible and fill my lungs and soul with the fresh springy air and the blooming trees and flowers. Can not wait!!!
To celebrate this i felt i should create something sweet for my 7 years old niece, a very delicate girl who likes delicate things, of course ;). So i made this lovely tote, hope she will like it.
From the side, to better see how it looks ;):
And the other side:
Hope she will love it and that you will like it ;).
So everyone, i wish you a great time and take care!

My very first vintage Easter cards

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! 
How are you, hope you had a great time. It's April's Fools today, take care ;)! We might play a trick to one or 2 of our friends, let's see :P.
The weather is grey, yesterday it poured all day long and today seems to be the same, actually. They promised nicer weather in the weekend, like 11-15 degrees, poor us :D.
Anyway, it seems that despite the weather - or maybe just because of it - i have been in the mood to create some Easter cards, some....vintage easter cards ;). They are my first ones and im quite with the result :). Today i will make some more. The images are taken from the internet, of course. Here there are:

The papers i used are from the Bloom&Grow collection of My Mind's Eye and of course cardstock. Except this, some stamps, embossing powder, distress inks, and some pearls&rhinestones.
I have a hard time in choosing between these 2, i like them equally much :). 
I actually made 3 but i did not like how the picture looked for 1 of them, so i will get back later, with the next lot ;). 
Until then, i wish you a lovely time and a great weekend!!! 
And...don't get fooled today ;).
