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

Summer booklet

I have finally played with my bind-it-all for the first time. I've had it for about a year, but not played with it until today. I have been feeling like making other things that cards lately and this was the perfect project. As the weather is so beautiful here I jumped for joy when I found these papers in my stash.

The image I have used is radiant butterfly from sweetpea stamps and I have cut around it so you might have not recognized it at first. I coloured her with promarkers to match the papers. I like how I manged to align her to the background paper as it looks like there are flowers coming out of her hair. There is some glitter on the butterfly and flowers, but it doesn't show properly.

The booklet has 12 pages in these wonderful colours. I think the image is perfect as there are butterflies on some of the papers too. I thought the black would clash, but think it only accentuates the bright colours. I was thinking about decorating it more with flowers and such, but I think the front should be flat to be practical and I didn't want to overwhealm the beautiful image. I also left the top blank so whoever gets this album can add their own text.

Don't miss sweetpea's 2:nd anniversary bloghop. It's all happening on the blog and you can win some fabulous stamps. On wednesday I'll be showing you some more new releases so don't forget to stop by!
