This one is for the Product Spotlight of Bella blvd.

I used the Bella blvd Illustrated Faith line , You are loved.
Also i used a few of the awesome free cut files from Paper Issues.

A photo of our youngest daughter, Astrid, learning skating.
I love to see every new thing she learn and to see her grow in her self-esteem.

Paper Issues - Take 5 Tuesday


I have played along with one of Paper Issues monthly challenges , Take 5 Tuesday.

Again I have had some fun with my new papers from Simple Stories line, Faith, I have been used both the 6x8 pad and some stickers.

From the Take 5 Tuesday list i have used:
Mint green, Peach, Cardstock, Stiching, Stickers, 2 or more photos, Feather ( one of the patterned papers), Patterned paper, Circles (stiched under the photos), a title with 3 or more words.

Also this page is a scraplift of one of Cassie Box's layouts.
Kat Benjamin, one of the talented PI Dt-ladies, encouraged us to lift Cassie's page, as she herself did, in one of the PI-posts.
And I gave it a try :)

Photos of our youngest son, Arvid, building with his train track.
Suddenly he cries, "Look, a circle " , so that is the title but in swedish.
Titta en cirkel :)

Many thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day my dear friends!

Hot Mess - PI Spring Crop


Today is a happy day here in Edsbyn where I live :)
Our bandy team here i Edsbyn won SM-gold today which means they are the very best team i Sweden right now, YAY!!

But now some scrappy talk...
I will show you another page for the PI Spring Crop.

This is my take on "Freaky Friday"
Criteria:  use, for example, holiday papers for a non holiday photo.

And so I did!
I have used Bella blvd Illustrated Faith line "Christmas" for an ordinary-day-with my-kiddos photo...

Our lovely son found his sisters beads and.. well you can see the mess.. :)
He was so satisfied.

Thanks for the visit here today my dear friend!

Take care!

Rocka Sockorna - PI Spring Crop


Hope you don't get bored because here's another layout for the Spring Crop over at Paper Issues.
I love them and yet they are pretty much different between each other I think :)

This one calls "All the pretty flowers" and the criteria is to using a floral paper background.
THAT is pretty challenging for me because I usually use just plain white cardstock as a background.
But what is a challenge without challenging parts :)
Out of my comfort zone, YAY!!

Papers from Dear Lizzy's lovely line Documentary and loads of white gesso (smeared out with my fingers, PRETTY FUN acctually)
The title says "Rocka Sockorna" wich means "Rock the Socks" in english.
At least here in sweden march 21 is the day of "Rock the Socks"and we do it to give tribute to peoples equal value.

Thats all for now!

Thanks for coming and have a great day where you are!

Hugs Anna :)

Just awesome - PI Spring Crop


Idag bjuder jag på en layout om en stolt gosse, vår yngste son Arvid.
Han övervann sin rädsla och vågade klättra högt (i en fyraårings ögon).
Senare fixad han också att hoppa ner i den mjuka madrassen :)

Jag har gjort den här layouten till en av utmaningarna i Paper Issues Spring Crop, The color of spring.

Today I will show you a page of a proud little boy, our youngest son Arvid.
He conquered his fear and dared to climbe high ( in a four-year-old kids eyes )
Later on he even managed to jump down into the soft mattress :)

I have made this page for one of the Spring Crop challenges over at Paper Issues, The color of spring.

Har använt två gratis skärfiler från Paper Issues och papper från Crate Paper och Bella blvd.

I have used two of the Free cut files from Paper Issues and some papers from Crate Paper and Bella blvd.

Tusen tack för att du kikade in, du gör mig så glad!

Thanks heaps for visiting me here today, you make me so happy!

Hugs Anna :)

Be daring


If you don't use swedish please use the translate tool at the right column :)

I dag tänker jag testa något nytt, vi får se hur det utvecklar sig...
Jag tänker FÖRSÖKA skriva på både svenska och engelska här i bloggen då många av mina scrapvänner därute är engelsspråkiga.
Det KANSKE slutar med att det blir endast engelska....
Sååå, vänligt men bestämt, språkpoliser undanbedes!
Jag är en enkel amatör och gör så gott jag kan, HAHA !! <3

Jag fortsätter med mina bidrag till Paper Issues Spring Crop.
Den här gången heter utmaningen "Spaced Out" och går ut på att du ska lämna 2/3 av din sida ren eller så kallat white space/negativespace.

I Keep going on with the Spring Crop Challenges over at Paper Issues.
This time with a challenge called "Spaced Out".
You need to leave 2/3 of your page pretty clean or white space/negative space.

Ett foto på vår vackra dotter Beatrice (vår nummer tre <3 )
Ännu ett Instafoto..:)
Jag har använt en ljuvlig skärfil från Paper Issues och underbara papper från Bella blvd, She Blooms.

A photo of our beautiful daughter Beatrice ( our no 3 <3 )
Even this pic from Instagram :)
I have used a lovely free cut file from Paper Issues and backed those flowers with gorgeous papers from Bella blvd, She Blooms.

Tack för att du hälsade på här idag!

Veckans Skiss #145


If you don't use swedish please use the translate tool at the right column :)

Välkommen härliga tisdag, trots att du bjuder på rejält snöväder här hemma i Edsbyn :(
Dess då trevligare då att pigga upp med en ny fräsch skiss av Sofi hos Veckans Skiss.

Hoppas du gör oss sällskap och tolkar !

Jag har använt några år gamla skolfoton från förskolan på Astrid.
Skissen vred jag på en aning och jag valde två foton.
Papper från Citrus Twist Kits och så har jag kompletterat med några chipboard stickers från Me and My Big Memories.
Stänkte med en guldfärgad mist också.

Gillar skissen jättemycket men jag fick kämpa lite ändå för att få ihop den här...
Vet inte varför det blir så ibland trots att man tokgillar skissen....

Vad glad jag blir att du hälsade på här idag!!
Lämna gärna en liten hälsning, om du vill, så jag ser att du varit här :)

Kram Anna :)

Loved - PI Spring Crop


If you don't use swedish please use the translate tool at the right column :)

Det pågår en Spring Crop hos Paper Issues.
En hel massa utmaningar finns det för dig som är sugen och deadline är den 26 mars.

 Jag började med Sketchy Sketch som ju som ni anar är en skissutmaning.

Ett foto på vår äldsta dotter Martha som jag ( som vanligt nu för tiden då hon bor ca 460 km hemifrån i Umeå) lånat från hennes Instagram.
Det är lite mörkt och suddigt men det bor så mycket glädje i det fotot tycker jag så jag vill absolut scrappa det <3
Papper från Citrus Twist Kits (mars).
En Free cut file från Paper Issues i bakgrunden och några stänk av mist.


Kelly Feldmans foto.

Tack snälla du för att du tog dig tid att kika in hos mig idag!

Ha det gott där du är!

Kram Anna :)
