2 Rest & Dream

Hello Friends!

I'm back with a bright and summery page today.
This one I made for the Scrap Lift Sunday at Paper Issues.  You are to lift a lovely happy page of talented Mary-Ann Maldonado.

I got out of my comfort zone again and used bright blues, and toghether with some mint and yellow I kind of liked it.
Those papers worked good with my photo of our oldest son enjoying the sun in lovely, sunny California.
Love this pic of him <3

My big boy <3
Love you so much!

Here's Mary-Ann's lovely page..
( There's still time to participate,  deadline May 2nd )

Sweet Moments


Just thought I would swing by from a snowy, sunny and than snowy again, Fjällnäs, and share another colorful layout with you.

This one I made for a crop over at Engströms the past weekend.
I used some lovely papers and stickers from the Simple Stories line, Faith, and combined it with a few gorgeous free cut files from Paper Issues.

Acctually I grabed the 2nd price with this one, woot woot!! :)

I love this photo of our oldest daughter; Martha, and our small ones having a cozy morning together.
A really Sweet Moment<3

Thanks for stopping by lovelies!

Mix it Up - Paper Issues


Today I will show you a happy colorful page I made for the Mix it Up challenge over at Paper Issues.

I have used some papers and stickers from Pink Fresh Studios, Dream on.
I love the fresh, bright colors in that line.

For my background I used some different color mists and sprinkled some ordinary salt over and just let it dry before rubbing it of.
(It has to be completely dry before you rubb it of)
You can have some more information about this technique at the Mix it Up challenge.

Here's my take..

Our little girl at her favourite spot in Corona, the fountain at "The Crossings" shoping area.
That was the first thing she asked for after saying hello to the Marestaings :)
Therefore the text sticker at the bottom of the page fits perfect - Very little is needed to make a happy life -

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care <3

Some precious photos of my DH and oldest son at Corona del Mar in lovely California.
We had two amazing weeks overthere visiting our lovely friends, family Marestaing, THANKS !!<3

Hello lovelies!

Today I will share a soft , girlie layout with you. 
I have made it for the April Roll the Dice challenge over at Paper Issues.

This time the dice said, two tags and six stickers.
I will be honest, I have been cheated and used three tags (eeeekkk) ;)

For this page I have used two lovely Crate Paper lines, Maggie Holmes "Gather" and "Chasing Dreams".

This page is about our youngest daughter, Astrid, and her joy of playing her violin.
She is learning to play the violin at Kindergarten and I'm so impressed how much she already have learned. This weekend she found my BIG violin at home and just grabed it and played as she always have used it. (She usually use a small one at school.)

Thanks for stopping by !

Take care !

Hugs Anna :)

The photo is of our youngest kids playing together at the beach, Corona del Mar, in California.
Love this pic <3
