Sweetpea 2:nd anniversary bloghop and candy






















Hello and welcome to sweetpea's 2:nd anniversary bloghop. Can you believe it's already been two years? I've been on board from the start and I'm so proud to be on this team. You rock Lynette and thanks for having me.
If you have come from Ellen's blog, then you're on the right track, if not, go back to the sweetpea blog and start from there.

Today we have a trio of gorgeous images to share with you! These debut images include our newest artist Rebecca Sinz, ching-chou kuik and Nikki Burnette. Aren't they wonderful?


What better project than a calendar to celebrate sweetpea's anniversary? I have used my bind-it-all to make it, beautiful double sided papers from prima and a bunch of my favourite ching chou kuik images. The image I have used for the front is called exotic october and it's the top left seen above.
I am going to use this calendar to put down the excersise classes I've been taking so I know what and how often I've been doing it. At the back of the caledar I've added some white pages for notes like; which instructors I liked, measurements etc. With a pretty calendar like this who needs motivation!
As this is an excersise calendar I have written "take no prisoners" on the front page. I think it works beautifully with the image and the theme.

























For your chance to win some free sweetpea stamps, leave a comment under this post (one per person please)  and I will draw a winner on sunday may 1:st.

Next on the hop is Lisa

Katarina, what a wonderful calendar you have made here. All Sweet Pea Stamp Addicts would love this. I have to admit to only finding these stamps a year ago - but what a year it has been. Love the looks of the new stamps. Hope they hurry over here to the UK. Thanks for the Blog Hop. Off for more looking. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Christine - Cndn Stamper said...

This is gorgeous. I think it would defeat the purpose for me though. It is so beautiful, I wouldn't exercise so I wouldn't have to write and mess up the calendar.

Becky Dunham said...

Wow Katarina - this is beautiful! i love the idea of your exercise calendar - maybe if i tried this i might start to look like one of these girls on the stamps :) I really love this new stamp - one of my favorites!
