Lucky me!!

I'm so happy! Look what I got in the snail mail today. After joining the ManiaSummer challenge over at Scrappemania, I was so lucky to be one out of 10 to be drawn for a prize.
They are just lovely! And they are quite bigger than I thought.
I'm really looking forward to use them.

Summer school

The summer school at Minneriket has come to an end. It's been a lot nice of challenges to pick from. As many as 31 challenges during the summer, all with different techniques, colors or themes. The good thing about this challenge is that you could do as many challenges as you'd like or had time to do.
I did 8 layouts and 1 card. I would have liked to do more, but I haven't found the time. But I must say I'm satisfied with the ones I managed.

Box card

For those of you who know me, I'm NOT in to cards *bummer*
But when my good friend, neighbor and fellow scrapper Lene, invited me to her birthday party, I felt committed to make a card. So instead of making a "traditional" card, I made this box and wrote directly on the inside.

Happy 35 Lene!!

I love my dog!

Isn't my dog cute? I just love my dog *lol*
And she was so happy when she got this outfit on her 5th birthday. It really made her day.
She is waiting impatiently for a real dog. Her dad has promised that we'll get our own next year after summer vacation.
I can't count the number of dogs in her room, and they all make turns when she is getting to bed in the evening.

Made this for the summerschool at Minneriket. The challenge was to make a LO using 6x12 size.

I wanted to publish this layout three days ago, but I've had problems getting in to all websites hosted by blogspot.com.
First I thought it was the host having the problem, but I soon realized it was my computer that had a problem. I was afraid I had got virus, but after using a Spybot program, it managed to fix the problem. *puh*
So most likely I had got spyware. Due to this problem I haven't been able to check around other blogs, so if you missed me, you know why *lol*

Well, anyway. Here's the LO I made for Minneriket . One of the challenges at the Summer school was to use at least 3 different fonts. I've managed to use 5.

Scrappemania OLW

Finally I've had time for some scrapping lately. *juhu*
Didn't bother to make room on my desk, so it looks like hell in my scraproom (have to do something about that in the near future *ehem*)

I "flied" this layout for the challenge at Scrappemania; using the word "Idyll" with the summerschool at Minneriket; using chabby chic technique.
I'm very pleased with the result

Just BE yourself

Getting inspired by the challenge at One Little Word, using the word BE, I made this layout of my youngest.
She is always making up faces and loves to be in the spotlight.
Here she's taking her sisters cap and sunglasses.

Creative with circles

Had really fun doing this layout for the challenge at Scrappemania. The challenge was to do something creative with circles or squares.
Used paper from Prima and Hambly. This is how it turned out:

How long was Adam in Paradise?

Not for long.....

This has not been one of my best days. My mother called me at 6 am to tell me we had to come and get my son (he got a terrible earache the day before.. went to the doctor etc)
We're talking about an 8 hour drive-one way. So I made a deal with my DH and my mother that they would meet half way. My DH got so stressed, that on the way he manged to fill the tank with petrol instead of diesel *faint*. Had to call the car rescue and get towed to the nearest car workshop. It took ages and cost at fortune.
My son came home in tears because of the pain, and because he had to leave his grandmother. Not much fun being a mother then.

This LO of him is for the summerschool challenge over at Minneriket where we should use buttons.

Kirsten was so nice to give me this award. Thank you for those kind words, and I'm really looking forward to go to Paris with you!

The rules are as follows:

1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
