Blog makeover !

This is my first post on my new and very much improved blog , all thanks to the wonderful blog designer KRISTINE DAVIDSON (someone I consider a" little sister", because of her close friendship with my mom a few years ago !!!)  can't wait to meet you Kristine !! and big thanks for making this blog such a beautiful spot for me to post my work !!!
I changed to name of my blog because I didn't think it fit my personality and Kristine thought it would be fun to create something MARILOU "ish" ( a named I've used on boards from the begining ) ( "Mari" for Marielle and "Lou" for my cat Loulou )
So what do you all think ??? I love the bright colors, the trees, those cute owls,the stitching ,the font......well everything really !! Go check out Kristine's blog, I'm sure she'd be happy to create something awesome like this for your blog ,there's even a list of other blogs she's created!!!
Big hugs !!

Swim like a fish

Hi !
I am a big MME fan, so I always try to find time to do their challenges every month. This month the challenge was to create a layout using this sketch and the summertime theme.
This is the challenge # 14 sketch by Anam Stubbington.

I used papers from the "Quite Contrary" and "So Sophie" collections. I had fun time cutting a few of the dots and a few little fishes (Cosmo Cricket) and adding them on my layout with pop dots !!

Thanks for Visiting!

Birthday girl

Hello, today I just have a quick post of a layout I made for the Pebbles inc blog. My contract ends at the end of the month :(  . It's been a great year working on this wonderful team.
For this assignment ,we were to use something to inspire us to make our layout. I was inspired by this delightful rosette ribbon by American Crafts.

I made some small rosettes with AC cardstock in my niece favorite color.
All supplies are from Pebbles and American Crafts (plus Kaisercraft pearls).

Thanks for the visit, have a great weekend !!
