Head tilted

Simple layout... just love the pic. :)
Another one from yesterday. Doodles are from my shop.


Isn't this just the cutest pic? Huh? Mother kissing her son on the head. Love..... for BOOBIES??? WHERE is the son keeping his hands? WHAT is he doing? WHY is he touching those? Yeah... that fascination with the boobies just isn't ending... But no he is NOT going to touch MY boobies until he's 18. That's for sure! :D

Journaling in english:
Well, actually it was quite a while ago that we stopped breastfeeding. You have never stopped liking the boobies though. At totally unexpected times you will reach for them. I think it's a kind of comfort for you. I don't mind. I'm absolutely sure you will NOT be touching them all your life. Absolutely sure.

So yesterday I went to a crop. We had so much fun! This was the best crop I've ever attended. Doesn't say much perhaps... I've been to maybe 5 or 6. :D
But this was just SO nice. We had so much fun. And I love when I don't have to censor myself but can actually be just as dorky as I am! :D
AND as a big bonus I scrapped four layouts! That's not bad, huh? I usually just sit and dumbstare at the pics and embellies for hours and then decide on something else, which usually gives the result of NOTHING leaving the place. :D
And I'm LIKING all my four layouts too! What are the odds of that ever happening! AND they are finished!
Okay, only not uploaded here right now... just that one. Don't have the energy to upload the others... you will have to come back *cliffhanger*

Emma & you

This was one of those pics that had to be scrapped too.
So I made a new template for my Robo and cut out the black flowers with doodles.
Also the journalingspot is from my shop.
IN case you'd be interested, I can add it to my Etsy-shop.

Journaling in english:
Emma and you played SO much after we moved back to Sweden. Several days a week we'd spend at Emma's house. Sometimes friendships seem to just fade away. That's what happened here.

Look we can dive!

This is my daughter and her friend, many years ago.
They were so proud they could dive... or more like sticking their face in the water. :D

Everyone's talking about it so why shouldn't I get one too?
I decided the easiest way for me to sell my stuff abroad would be through Etsy. So, I got me a little shop.
Not everything is in there, but obviously I'll add stuff if you're interested in something in the store that's not there. :)
Welcome to my Etsy-shop

And today I am SOOOO tired.
I babysat last night. Slept over there, and then the little baby decided that 5:15 was a good time to wake up! :-o
I didn't, neither did the mommy who didn't get home til 1am
I didn't fall asleep til midnight, so I'm dead today. Still went to a friends house today and had some coffee (lots) and talked for a few hours. But now time is finally nearing that magical "it's okay to go to bed hour"

This is about our home. It's for the challengeblog where I'm a designer.

Flowerstems from my shop

Journaling in english:
Just think, this is our home! How cool is that? We were just gonna go to some houseshowings so we'd know what we wanted in a house. This was the first house we went to look at and on the way back home from the showing we were both convinced we did NOT want the house. Before the day had ended though, we had both changed our opinion about that and totally crazy we WON the bidding and got the house for only 2. 65 mil. It's my best, and most expensive, impulsebuy ever.
Sure we were nervous as we signed all the papers, but we've managed very well. This is our home, and we love it.

Sweet girl

I love this format! For all thos less-than-perfect pics from when Hannah was a baby. This format is perfect!
I have so many of these pics, no journaling needed. Just love how cute she was. :D

This pic has been waiting to be scrapped for the longest time. Finally managed to do something with it. Feels good.
Journalingspots I made for cutting with CR/Wishblade/Sillhouette and can be bought from my store

Journaling in english:
I don't really know where you got your blue eyes from. They sure aren't from me or daddy. But they are very special and a big part of your personality. Nobody can say no to your blue eyes.

The summer when you got big

My little Hannah got big. Just like that.

Frills from my shop, a little handdrawn bird inspired by all the birds everywhere. Title cut with CR (font Mabella), Primaflowers and brads.
Doodled frame around journaling I drew and cut with my CR.

Journaling in english:
You were almost never home this summer. Out playing with friends from early morning 'til late night. I guess that's the way it's going to be from now on. I just have to realize that my little Hannah is so big!

Right now

Here's a layout I made today. I like this pic of me, and right now it's perfect.

I used lots of acrylic paint. Dabbers from Adirondack are the BEST!
Cut out stars and painted with acrylic paint, and then added a 3D-coat. Did the same with the thickers for the title. Cut the dymo-text up into pieces to add a little mess. :D
Doodlings I have made myself and cut with my CR. Can be found in the shop as a template or cut out. And yes, sooooon I will translate the shop into english. It IS under way... takes some time though as my messy life has been taking over me and all my wants. Some bling on the photo too... thought that was needed for this mess to be complete. :D

Title reads: Life is a little messy right now
Journaling goes:
There's so much stuff upside-down in my life right now. For the first time I know what I want to do with my life, only life doesn't seem to want to do the same thing as I do. Frustrating! But it'll probably be okay...

I took a walk

After dropping Samuel off at preschool (or daycare? I forget the difference) yesterday I took a walk. Rain was hanging in the air and the light was just gorgeous. After about 15 minutes of walking and seeing all sorts of pretty things I cut the walk short and went for my camera. So I did the same walk again. Do you think the light was still there? No, of course not... But I found some pretty stuff anyways.

Here's what Sweden looks like right now. Fall came earlier than we had hoped, but hey - those colors make up for the loss of summer. Truly do.

Besides the walk I made some lingonberry-jam yesterday. YUM! So good!

This was made for the challengeblog where I'm a designer. I made it during the summer, and the topic was homemade overlays. The journalingtag is homemade. :)
Butterflies are homemade robo-templates. Flowers are retroflowers painted with distress-reinkers.
Background has been splattered with acrylic paint.

Journaling in english:
Just think you've been this small, Sofia. You and I were friends already then, Sofia. It's so special being your aunt!

Painted nails

This is about how Hannah and I always paint our nails the day before she leaves for the states every summer. Then we cannot clean the paint off until she gets home again. Worked like a charm the first year, when she was gone no more than 2½ weeks.
A little worse this year when she was gone a month!

Journalingstamps and flowerstamps from my shop.

Journaling reads:
Every summer you leave for the states and the first year already we painted our nails before you left. Then we let it stay there until you were home again, and that way we saw how long you've been gone.
This year, you were gone way too long.

Yesterday was the weirdest day. I was SO tired all day. Had to go to bed at 6.30 pm!!! I could not stay awake. I hate those kind of days. But hey, I'm wellrested now. :D
I was hoping to get some scrapping done this weekend, but now I feel I should spend some time with my kids instead.
So, I'll scrap tomorrow. :D

Well, in case you didn't, here's a link.
I just uploaded a bunch of new sketches today!

First kiss - no thanks!!!

I made this last night. Really for my shop. :D
I've used a LOT of new stuff from the shop. Fun fun! Still got plenty more to add to the store, but this will do for now. I'm going out on a photosafari with some other scrapgirls today! :)

Journalingspots, frills, ticket and doodles are from my store.

Journaling in english:
How sweet! Wilma and you were playing and suddenly Wilma felt like giving you a hug and kiss. You were NOT interested in hugs and kisses. I'm so glad I had the camera ready for these cute pics!
