OK, promissed you a step by step of my LO in progress, so here it is:
This is where I started:

Then I created a journaling spot by painting a cake "thingy" (sorry, no idea what they are called) brown and stamped a journaling cirkel on it:

I decided that the background was to "dull" and changed it for corded cardboard:
Added some buttons to the flowers:
Wrote my journaling on the journaling spot using a white pen and thought it would be nice to ad a little strip of paper on the left site of the picture and use a stamp on the upper left corner.
Was a little nervous about that because I was afraid the stamp would work out differently on the paper and the picutere. But then I thought, well... the worst thing that can happen is that I will have to print out my picture again, so I just tried and liked the result:
Added thread to the flowers and buttons and adhered them on the LO using glue dots (they are the best for adhering flowers and buttons!!!):
Decided which letters to use for my title and painted them white:
Finally I distressed the edges of the cardboard:
And this is the final result:
BTW The title "een nieuw petje" means "a new hat"
Don't you just love these Prima supplies??? I do!!
Yesterday evenig at my crop I made this LO for OLW. Actually it was not done when the crop was but I was not tired at all and my head was still full of scrapbooking so I kept scrapping untill the LO was finished, which was at 0.45 a.m. ....and then I still couldn't sleep. But hey, my LO was done! :)
The word this week is Create: To cause to exist; bring into being; To give rise to; produce; To invest with an office or title; To produce through artistic or imaginative effort.
The title of my LO is: "Your smile creates love in my heart"
Wish I had the time to play along every time! Love these challenges!
Thanks again for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the step by step!
It's almost weekend, have a nice one!!
