Sweet and colorful

Today, I would like to introduce to you...Mirjam Hendriks from The Netherlands! I "met" Mirjam through the Scrapping Out Loud challenge blog 6 months ago. She was a regular participant and I really enjoyed her creations. This super sweet gal was also the first blog friend to send me some happy mail! :) She, by the way, makes the cutest things with fimo clay so make friends with her! (wink ;) *LOL*...this lucky gal has such a lovely scrap space all to herself...she must have a lot of goodies in those drawers!:) She does have a surprise for ONE of you...:)

I picked some of her creative projects to show you...

 I love that her projects are always so lively and colourful!:)

 "When Yvonne asked me to be her guest blogger I felt so honored, because I love her work... I think she's the queen of card making!!! (because of her I started with card-making too). 

Well what would I tell you?...wake up Mirjam... about your love for crafts and especially scrapping of course!!! Since my childhood I'm a huge crafts lover, I alway's collected cute stickers,papers and cut out pictures from magazines to make my own little books...so as a child I also did some scrapping without knowing that:):)Before I started with scrapping I played alot with fimo clay and felt and I've always had a passion for photography.

When I was surfing on the internet two years ago I found the blog of the Dutch scrapper/photographer Corinne Delis( www.corinne-delis.typepad.com ) ...and that was the day I fell in love with scrapbooking!
My perfect scrapping time looks like this.....a pot of tea (without chocolate since I'm on a diet:( ...an incense stick, my fave music and of course my snoring cats around me...and then I can scrap and let all my stress melt away...

It's been a year since I started blogging ( www.sweetandcolorful.blogspot.com ) and WOW...I love it...it's so much FUN to 'meet' people around the whole world with the same passion for scrapbooking!!! And it makes my day when I receive lovely comments!!! I really get inspired by the work I see on other scrapblogs...so before I start scrapping, I visit my fave blogs and then I have inspiration enough to make my own pages!!! Also I get inspired by things around me, like nature, colors, beautiful advertisements in magazines and music!

Though I find it hard to journal on my LOs, I started last week with Marit's ( www.maritscrapworld.com ) art journal workshop...and WOW I made my very first art journal pages with a lot of journaling....it's so much FUN!!! Yes...scrapping is a part of my life that I can't imagine my life without it!!! "
Mirjam has offered this lovely RAK for one lucky winner! 

This is the inspiration piece by Mirjam...

Feel free to make a card or layout or any creative project inspired by Mirjam's creation. I hope at least one of you plays along (pretty please...:). Leave your project links in this post by next Tuesday, 16 February 2010.

I will share my inspired project in my next post...:)
