First layout of the year!

After my first mini-album, here's my first layout for 2009! I love this picture of my 2 smiling kids in sunny and flowery Figeac, they look quite happy! When I first started to put this layout together, I wasn't too sure that i was going to like the result, because I gave "mixing papers from different manufacturers" a try and it wasn't easy. I used Sassafras Lass (background), My minds Eye, Hambly and Daisybucket for this, plus We R memory keepers for the photo mat. But I admit that I actually quite like the result, it looks so sunny! Cf. the title Soleil !, which means sun! in English.I guess I needed a little sunshine, we do have sunshine actually but it is soooo cold. Some stamps (autumn leaves and Hero Arts), flowers (Prima, who else?), letters (American Craft Thickers) and a journaling spot from Heidi Swapp.

Today's blog challenge on TwoPeas is

Challenge for today~ I love the weekends because......

Easy one! I love the weekends because during the weekend, you can do whatever you feel like! Like now, it is 1.30 pm, the kids are still in their pyjamas,simply because they like it, I blog, because I like that, I just organized my scrapcorner, which I always do just after finishing a layout, because I actually enjoy organizing my scrapcorner. I'll probably play monopoly with the kids (Junior edition!), which I enjoy (and they too), then I'll go out a little to take some pictures, as I'm learning how to use my camera and also have to have a picture for POTD, my son might come with me on his bike. Well, to make a long story short, I love the weekend because that's the little time we have for doing things we WANT to do. Tomorrow, work starts again, after 10 days holidays.....

Thanks for looking and please don't hesitate to leave a comment, I love comments!!

That layout is so pretty - love the colors!
The challenge is a great one. I love the weekends because you are right - we can do what we want. Today is sunday and I'm just laying on the couch, with my computer, fireplace going, tree lights on and watching a great movie. And not feeling guilty! Maybe a nap is in order too!

I love the ways this turned out! You did a fabulous job combing different manufacturers'!

That's gorgeous. I love the way you seamlessly blended the background design and the photo. It's hard to tell where one starts and the other ends.
