The Sketchbook NZ

Thanks to my friend Megan who started The Sketchbook NZ, I have got some more LO's done! Her challenges are pushing all the right buttons for me!!


Here's my LO for the first challenge in the Sketchbook Olympics. The criteria was to use polka dot paper and circles. I am very happy about how the LO came out! For you non - Swedes; here's a little translation for you... :)

The title says "Big Girl". The journalling says "I thought it would be much longer before this day was here, but here it is. You're a Big Girl now!" The home made tickets says "Wonderful child" and "You have my heart".

And then my LO for the lates Friday challenge, also at Sketchbook. You had to use chipboard, stars and some sort of list. A very simple LO, but I like it!

Tonight there's a new challenge posted for the Sketcbook Olympics. Can't wait!!!                 

I've been scrappin'!!

Yep, you read it right, I have been creating! Two layouts in the last couple of days, all thanks to challenges over at The Sketch Book. They are not exactly masterpeices, but a girl needs to start slowly, right?

I decided I needed to scrap some photos that have been lying around for a while, before I start on my travel photos.

The first LO is for a sketch challenge. The second LO had to have a photo of me in it, so I used a photo I have used before. Never mind...

Thanks for letting me know you have visited!!!

Wooooooooo hoooooooot!!!

We're home!!! And that is my number ONE on my Woo hoot Wednesday list!!! (Hi
Janine!)  It's so wonderful being back with my DH again...

It's been almost 9 GREAT but long weeks since we took off to Sweden. It was fantastic seeing all my family and friends again. The best part (if you don't count the lovely summery weather that we had most of the time) was that I had time to get QUALITY time with most of my family and friends. On a short visit, you just don't. This time I got to see almost everyone at least twice!!! And Tova had a blast. She had so much fun playing with her cousins, and my friends kids. And boy has she grown during this trip... Both physically and mentally. She's not a baby anymore, that's for sure, and she's speaking Swedish like a true Swede!!!

Number two on my woo hoot list is all the new babies that have arrived around me. Congratulations all, you know who you are! I wish my own pregnancy was woo hoot only, but it's a bit of a struggle... I'm week 17 now, and I wonder if it is going to be this hard the whole time, just like when I was pregnant with Tova. I know I can manage, but with a 23 month tantrum girl in the house, I need some cheering on, and a lot of good advice to survive!!!

Number three on my list is the fact that I can feel a bit of inspiration coming back... I haven't had mojo for MONTHS, but catching up with Megan R in the weekend and watching her creating away gave me an inkling of hope. I might be able to sit down and scrap soon!!! With about 400 photos from our trip, there should be enough to get inspired from one should think...

Well, number four on my list have to be about indulgence.... I have missed the dunkin' donuts so much! I have only had two since I came back, but MAN are they good!!! Lov'em!! (They don't have them in Sweden...)

Right. That will have to be all for today, I'm finding it hard to get back in blog-mode. Leaving you with the LO's I made for Scrap with V (July and August kits) before I left. Hopefully there will be new creations coming up here soon!!!
