The simple style
For my Sweden-trip album i decided to go with the 8.5"x11" format, and to get them all done before I retire (!) I decided to just go for SIMPLICITY. I have also decided to do them all in Swedish. Most of my LO's have been in English lately, so it's time for the Mother Tounge to be used!!
I went over to Megan's house for a bit of girl time on Friday, and got three done.
On this first one, the photos gives it all away... "Dress up time"
This is Tova and her cousin playing with water FOREVER. So much fun!
This title simply says "Summer girl".
Then I decided to make a LO for the celebrity challenge over at the Sketchbook. Not sure I met all the criteria, but another LO for the album...
Yep. I like the combo pink and brown at the moment...
Right. Smore stuff coming later in the week, 'til then!
[insert title here]
It's been a full on weekend for me. Went to a whole day crop on Saturday, and finished four LO's. Normally I would do twice as many, but I'm happy I got those done, and I like them all!!! I can't show you all of them today, but here's two of them.
This one is for the fortnightly sketch @ Sketchbook:
And then my FIRST EVER 8.5 x 11 LO. I've bought an album for our Sweden trip in that size, very exciting!!!
The LO is about Tova's first attempt to eat an apple like a "big girl". She just grew so much during our trip over there. Both physically and mentally...
Will show the other LO's in a while... :) Need to send them somewhere else first!
Then I had a pregnancy scare on Sunday night, both me and my midwife thought I had gone into prem-labour, but thank God I hadn't. I just have to live with pain until baby comes. That's OK I guess, as ling as baby waits to come out 'til he/she is readily baked!
Finally, the RAK! No - I hadn't forgotten! I asked my DH to pick a number between 1-12 (no of comments) and he picked...
As you are hanging out on the same forum as me, just PM me mith your addy, and I will send you the sparkly thickers!!
OK. Gonna have a lay down now, while my daughter is at daycare. Hubby came home with a 46" LCD last night, so a the couch and a movie seems like a good idea to me...
So... The last week or so, I've kind of celebrated this by "treating myself" with some online shopping... And please don't tell my husband, but I think I might have gone a little bit overboard... :) The last few days I have got happy mail from six different shops. Mmmm... Lots of yummy stuff!!!
Well, I figured that someone else but me should enjoy my shopping frenzy, don't you think? This is where my RAK comes in. It's not much, but I'm sure someone wants it?
Leave a comment here before Sunday 18 September, and you're in the draw for a packet of AC thickers, see photo below. Put a link to my blog on your blog, and you have two "tickets" to the draw. How does that sound?
I will post the RAK anywhere in the world!
The LO is for the fortnightly sketch over at the Sketchbook!
And then this weeks Olympic LO. The theme had to be nautical/water and it had to have clear elements on it. I used Paper Pesto's latest kit, apart from the alphas, and this is my result!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!!
2 years ago...
If you wanna see pics of her day and the cupcakes I made for her to take to daycare (my first EVER!!!) go check out my blog in Swedish!
The olympics continues...
This is my result, and I have to say I'm thrilled with it! It's not a spectacular LO in any means, but I was so happy to find this photo of me from ten years ago, and the LO pretty much came together by itself. It's harder than you think to limit yourself to 10 things to put on a LO (photo included!!!). I dare you to try it if you haven't already!
This next LO is for a challenge over at the SWV cybercrop, uploading has to be done by midnight tonight!
Now, I'm gonna put my feet up and rest 'til it's time to pcik the monkey up from daycare. My midwife says I can do NO housework, so I'll obey...
Late night creations
The first LO is for the celebrity challenge over at Sketchbook, I got it it JUST on time before midnight... The challenge was to use speech bubbles. Very cool challenge! Bad photo I'm sorry, but hopefully you can see what I have done...
The second LO is for the DT only challenge over at SWV. It's abput my amazing goddaughter Lea. I wish I could live closer to her, she is such a smart and beautiful girl, but it is what it is...
The CC is still going on, you have 'til midnight tomorrow to upload your creations. Go have a peek!!
It's Father's day on Sunday here in NZ. So the theme for this weekends cyber crop over at Scrap with V is very suitable - TYPICAL MALE. The challenges this time are all about the men in our lives, very cool!!! Go check it out!!
I set the sketch challenge this time, and this is my take on my own sketch:
I'm hoping to scrap a lot more this weekend, but since we spent the day in hospital yesterday (my dear husband has kidney stones!!!) we'll see how we go. One hour at a time...
Off to organise breakfast for the little one now, thanks for stopping by!
So, managing to do a LO for the second challenge over at Sketchbook feels like a huge accomplishment! And the fact that I'm happy with it too is a bonus! It's the first LO for my new baby's ablum. I took the photo myself actually... :)
The journalling around the swirls reads:
I still can't believe that you are in there... inside of me!!!
To be blessed again is a miracle. Someone up above must love me!
I am so excited to see who you are,
to get to know you!
I can't wait to hold you...
You are already "talking" to me,
you keep kicking and moving around all day.
Such an amazing feeling.
I love you my baby, I love you.
The photo isn't all that great, but I hope you get the picture. Now I need to buy an album to put it in!!! Have to go with a neutral colour, as we didn't find out about the sex on the last scan. Exciting...
Thanks for leaving a footprint when you've been here.... :)
