Do people do that nowadays? Well, this lovely lady from Mo´s Digital Pencil does and at the same time sending you all a Easter greetings! We are soon having spring break at my son´s school and we will take a little trip and when we are back we will have guest for 3 weeks.

Treasure chest!

Now I have to show you one of the things I made at the Irene Tan class last weekend. This gorgeous Treasure travel chest with an acrylic mini album inside, wow, this was so much fun to make! This tiny chest is only measuring 3.5"/2.5" but we managed to fit in sooo many details.

We used a lot of inking, stamping, cutting, masking, embossing techniques. Our teacher and designer Irene is a master piece of art herself, her creativeness is amazing. We used papers from Graphic 45 and pictures from Darkroom Door.

This is the little acrylic mini book that is kept inside. If you do not know Irene, please visit her fabulous blog, Scrapperlicious, and you are in for a treat!

Mo´s NOT a square or rectangle!

Friday again! This weekend I will get to spend together with Irene Tan from Scrapperlicious, she will come to Kuala Lumpur and teach us lucky scrappers for two days! Yeah! But first I will show you my entry to Mo´s Digital Pencil challenge no 22! Not a square or rectangle, I did a circle, half on the outside and full circle when you open it. I made a little (to small!) pocket on the inside to put a little gift. I used a screw from Tim Holtz to hold it together! Now, you have a great weekend, I know I will have!
