A letter from Marivic Clifton

Hello friends! This is Marivic. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me. I would like to thank you for all your support and for sharing all your beautiful creations with us month after month.

I am very thankful to my good friend, Tusia for managing the blog while I was gone. I am also grateful for our coordinators, Marie and Denise for all their hard work in keeping the monthly challenges and guest designers scheduled each month. Thank you to all our DT members for keeping us inspired every month with their amazing projects. And of course, I am forever grateful to our sponsors for helping us with prizes to keep the challenges going. And mostly thankful to you, my friends, for sharing with us your talent and creativity. I'm so amazed at how magnificent you all are!

Unfortunately, at this time, I am putting the blog on a pause. We had built a new home, which it has taken a year and a half to finish. I still need to organize things at home and hopefully be able to get back in my old routine.  I've decided that we will take a break from the challenges until I can get things situated.

Hopefully, when I get back, we can resume with our monthly challenges seamlessly.  We will also be doing a Design Team and coordinators call as well.

Please be patient with us during this time. I don't want to completely close the blog, we've been doing this monthly challenges for so many years and I just can't give up on all the hard work and commitment to make this blog happen. The best thing at the moment is to take a break and come back when things settle down.

Thank you for your understanding, your loyalty, and your friendship. I will see you all soon.

Love,

Marivic

We have a super treat for you today. We have a super Guest Designer today, to share her inspiration with us. A warm welcome to Elli A. Elli was our previous months winner.

Hi there! :-)

I'm Elli and I'm very happy to be a guest designer here at Berry71Bleu Challenges. I’m a stay-at-home mother of two lovely children. And I have a wonderful husband, who supports me in all my adventures.
Been through many hobbies, but since I discovered scrapbooking and especially mixed media, they turned into a real passion. In my projects I love trying out new techniques and designs and adore playing with textures, layers, colors, stamps, splashing and flowers!
For the current challenge "Summer is here" I created a Mixed Media Wedding Guest Book I want to share with you. Hope you like it!

Hugs,

Magic treasure

Hello mixed media lovers,


Today it is my turn to show you my mixed media frame made with inspiration 
from this months moodboard. With the gorgeous colors Purple and Blue 
beach theme.


The first thought was to make an underwater world with a beautiful sea horse. That's why I decided to altered it and this is the outcome of it. So let me show you some close-ups of my underwater world with seaweed, shells, starfish, water flowers and of course some bubbles.
