A little reminder
: I haven't seen any responses to my template challenge. If you have made a LO and just forgot to tell me please place a comment in this post. In a couple of days the template will not be available, so download now if you like it. :) (You can download the template by clicking the image two posts below.....)

We've had such great warm summer weather lately. I love it :) Right now I'm blogging to you from our veranda - with the bugs zooming around me and the neighbor cutting grass on the field. Nice!! I wanted to show you a few of my latest scrap pages and some other stuff too. So here we go.

1. CT-stuff; Pretty Scrappy

- a new collab kit is soon in the store, look out for blog train freebies on July 1st.

- June assignment
I have done three out of four LOs this month (the last one i coming soon - just didn't turn out like I wanted at first so I had to start from scratch....)

The Ferry Ride - I love this photo of my nephew and niece. Glad I finally got to scrap it!!

It was so exciting! My FAVORITE nephew and niece were visiting me at my home by the fjord. We were FERRY RIDING for their first time. They loved it - although it was a new feeling - and I LOVED having them there with me showing them everything that
was my everyday life.
s.a.f.e - I love this gorgeous eye! Can't wait to see all of her in our vacation in July (and her sisters too!) ;)

I promised my self to make more faith scraps (like Jess of Scrapbook Ideas do). It's about time I made some!! The scripture is from Psalm 17:8. I hope to do some more soon!!

2. The Spraground

I've been a fan of Jessica Sprague for a while and did a great FREE class with her last fall. This week she's celebrating 2 years in business with freebies and challenges.

So far I've only got time to enter one challenge - but for that I made 2 scraps(!) The above shown faith scrap and this strawberry one below. It took me some time to get it together, but I love the result. Come back for updates on this one; hopefully I get to scrap about him actually EATING the strawberries too ;)

Bloom On

Strawberries are MT’s favorite berries. In the garden we have a few plants planted by the previous owner.I was thinking about removing them, but MT wanted them to stay and to care for them. This spring he has gone to look at them almost everyday. Some days he even remembered to give them some water. Although, the last weeks he seems to have forgotten them completely. I told him to go look today - and he was so surprised.

wow. they have gotten so big!! when can I eat them??!! I reckon there will be a some days before they are big enough.I'm only glad to see something in my garden are eatable...
Jessica is hosting a new FREE class in July - as long as you sign on by midninght Sunday EST. Click image below to join.

3. An apple layout

I found this kit called apple apple by luck browsing through the after 5 store. I love it and it has a lot of apples in it ;) Here is my first go scrapping with it. From our everyday life.

MT is enjoying a mouthful of delicious apple. 12. mai 2009
Kiddo have been telling me to finish this up and come join him for a bike ride - for a while. So I'll better go on a little journey with him before he'll head to bed. Tomorrow the plan is to go swimming somewhere. Summer life is good!! (I'll try to come back later and add a few more designer links in the credits...) DONE!

Wishing you all a nice and blessed weekend. Thanks for reading!!

recent LO's + reminder

A little reminder
: only one day left of the template challenge. If you haven't already, jump to this post, download the template and join in the challenge. There will be a price of $3 for the winning layout!! :) (You can download the template by clicking the image two posts below.....)

Just a couple of recent layouts to show you. I try to scrap one LO each day, but this week I haven't been much productive. But I made this from MT's first bath of the season. It was so cold - but he was super happy for it still; what is it with children and water?!? ;)

Anyhow it was made for the Copycat challenge at Oscraps - the challenge runs to the end of the month, so lots of time for you to join in on the fun ;)

For credits, journal and a chance to leave me some love: click the image!

Then there is this simple, but heart felt LO, I made last week with photo from our trip to North Norway a couple of weeks ago (we had such a great time there will be several layouts with photos from that short vacation - in the last post I used a few in the LO's of Tuesday and Saturday). This is also in answer to a challenge, this time at Catscrap.

Thanks for looking - now go and join in my challenge and get that template scrapped in your unique way!! I look forward to see what you'll make! :D

simply perfect + reminder

A little reminder
: only a couple of days left of the template challenge. If you haven't already, jump to this post, download the template and join in the challenge. There will be a price of $3 for the winning layout!! :)

I wanted to show the layouts I made last week joining in on the Sue Cummings spotlight challenge Simply Perfect at Oscraps. It was so much fun - and so many talented scrappers attending - and I'm so happy for being able to make a new LO for 6 of the 7 days the challenge lasted. I got nominated for layout of the day on 5 of the 6 LO's and on Sunday I won the price. I was so happy and proud and couldn't believe how lucky I was - and now I have $25 to use in Sue's shop. Yay!!

Here are the LO's:
for credits, journaling - and to leave me some love please click the images.

Tuesday - perfect spring day at the beach

Wednesday - cup o' coffee

Thursday - in a Pink Cadillac

Friday - the PERFECT new bike

Saturday - perfect SMILE

Sunday - the most PERFECT day

It was a PERFECT week
I've joined in on a few of these spotlights at Oscarps and they are always fun. This week I had so little time for the challenge (and even less time to dig out some older photos - even though it would be fun) - but hoping to attend next week / spotlight. Come join me?! ;)

project 365 - january month scrapped

I got a bit frustrated with me not being able to get the project-365 photos edited and scrapped. So I made a template for a whole month full of photos. That did the trick. I got inspired again. And I LOVE how the month of January came out:

My plan is to use the same kit (I love this kit, perfect for project 365 and so beautiful!!) for all the months - as well as the template I made - only to use different background pages and move the month name around a bit.... We'll see how it works ;)

If you want the template - let me know! :D
I'm thinking of making it a freebie.....

May CT layouts

I've been busy with work, vacation and scrapping lately. My house is suffering, but in a couple of weeks my summer vacation will start - so then I have all day to clean. LOL. I guess I'm going to scrap and take photos all day long.... Ahem. Anyway.

I want to show off the last two LO's I did as a CT at Pretty Scrappy (May assignment):

The first one I did with creations by Rachael's kit My Little Artist. I love the feel of this kit and the alpha is one of my favorites.

I used my own template (I'm still in a boxy mood) and photos I've been dying to scrap for so long.

Click image for credits :)

From Scrappy Shannon I got a Christmas kit to work on; Let us Adore Him.

Although it's not in season at the moment it's a cute and sweet kit. I especially loved all the manger images (or how to put it in English).

I have a bunch of photos from past Christmases to scrap, but I opted for the tree (once again). I love how it shines and for me it's hard to celebrate the season without it (not impossible, though). I guess it has something to do with the time of year where it's so little light during the day, we go out of the door while it's still dark outside and when we are back home it's dark again.....

Click the image for credits.

And then I'll better start working on the assignment for June!!! :D

If you love to scrap and would like to be a CT I believe that there still is an opening at Pretty Scrappy, just follow this link and see if there is room for one more.

Fun in the Sun

Oh, I'm such a bad blogger. But I have been scrapping a bit lately so over the next few days I've got stuff to show off :D

But first let me tell you that the June collab from Pretty Scrappy is out (have been out for a while, ahem) - Fun in the Sun. It's a happy and fun summer kit, filled with vibrant colors. And this is how it looks like:

- and here is where to go to buy it. Please use coupon code SunnyFun for $2.00 off (good until June 30, 2009). With the kit you'll also get these quickpages for free.

I've made this page with it:
