The Last Arty Girlz Challenge ~ 'Stamping'

The very first Arty Girlz challenge was 'Stamping' so we have chosen that as our theme to end on

This will be the last challenge on Arty Girlz for the time being, we have both LOVED setting challenges for you every Tuesday but at the moment we are very busy with real life.

This blog will not be deleted, it will remain active as there is lots of inspiration still to be had from the samplers and challenges, who knows one day we might surprise you all and start it up again but for the time being this will be the last Arty Girlz challenge.

We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making this such an enjoyable experience for us, we have made so many new friends along the way and we hope that you will continue to visit our personal blogs as we will still be posting on those.

Here's our stamping creations

Arty Girlz weekly challenge #76 SMILE with Guest Designer Anna Koziarek

This weeks Arty Girlz challenge has been set by Anna koziarek AKA Fryne who is our guest designer for this week. Fryne has choosen the theme SMILE...

As always you decide the format so you may decide to do a scrapbook layout, card, atc...anything that you like.

To join in with this challenge please post an image of your creation on your blog or website with a link to Arty Girlz and then leave a comment here with a link so that we can come and see what you have made.

So without further ado here is a short bio from Anna or as most of us know her by her nick name Fryne.

My name's Anna. I'm Polish, 32, mother of two sons (George 3,5 & Jeremy 1,2) and wife. I started scrapbooking when I was pregnant with my second baby and suddenly fell in love with it.

I tend to use one colour in my works (usually it's brown :D ) and lots of embellishments (the more the better :) ). I adore Tim Holtz's products and ornamental, baroque papers like Blue Awning by K&Company, Cavalier by Prima Marketing or BG kits. I collect stamps (especially rubber ones) but rarely use them :D I prefer making albums than LO's even if it takes much more time (I usually work about a week or two on an album).My favourite theme: my kids of course, maybe because the only photos I have are those of George and Jeremy, but most probably because they're so adorable...

My LO I prepared for this challenge shows the theme in a surprising, a little bit opposite way than expected. With those dark colours I simply wanted to show how a mother feels when she sees her child worried or thoughtful.my blog: http://frynologia.blogspot.com/

Here are Anna's wonderful creations

Thank you Anna for being our Guest Designer this week and sharing your beautiful work with us crissi & Julie xx
