It´s time to update some projects..

I have been focusing on work lately, so the blog has been part neglected… I´m so sorry about that…

Today Im going to share some of the work Ive done this past month that I only linked up to from eighter FB or here on my blog… so today will be a picture heavy post :))

Lets start right away with some My Scrapbook Nook work.. This have been such a hard assignment this month since its the absolutely last kit to work with since the kit club is closing sept 31st.

An interesting day…

Today has been the mental meltdown day in my house… and I made the black belt in Meltdowns….

Well let me put it like this…. I expect flowers chocolate a good wine and a beautiful neclace and a candle light dinner tomorrow….  No I dont expect this after every nuclear meltdown in this household… just tomorrow…

Why? Bec me and my husband Celebrate 11 yrs as married tomorrow.. and 15 as a couple….

well… to get back on track.. after the meltdown I thought of a saying I read somewhere on the web a couple of days ago… “If you are feeling blue.. try paint yourself in another color”

Love paint… a colleague of mine suggested bodypaint… naaah not my style… (getting on the wrong track again)…
Well.. I started painting.. and let me tell you that kind of painting was some time since the last time… I actually painted stamped Images.
There was a Time when I did it all the time… Thats how I ended up with scrapbooking. it feels like about a million years ago.. but I actually started my DT career as an International Designer for the Magnolia Rubberstamps.
bla bla bla.. Will she ever get to the point??……
Well I took out some colourpencils and started painting.. and I actually taped the entire process… and YES!!! I did a Video Tutorial about it..
The thought was to make something for my digital training programme we are having at work.. but as with alot today.. I sort of sidestepped myself and ended up with something else than I had in mind when I started…
so…
you want to check it out?
sorry about the audio.. Im not that great at talking in my videos yet….

Ive used the Carta Bella from The Aug kit from My scrapbook Nook for the card shown at the end of the video…

OUCH!!!

When we where in Thailand, our youngest got a bugbite at the poolsite, we dont know what kind of bug that bit her, but the foot swelled, and we went to the local pharmacy and got help with a cure of penicillin.

for this page Ive used the beautiful july kit from My Scrapbook Nook

MME- Indie Chic

Jillibean soup

Adhesive -Heidi Swapp

.:The pool:.

There have been some time since I scrapped, more than three weeks actually, and it´s because me and the family went away for a small trip, to Thailand. :)

We have been enjoying ourselves, lots of good food, lots of sunbathing and of course a lot of playing by the pool..

We had the pool almost the entire time by ourselves, and the kids loved it .. so the first LO after the vacation had to be about our lovely pool :)

Materials used: June kit My scrapbook Nook, stamps- Wow Embossing and Tim Holtz, Twine from The Twinery, Adhesive Heidi Swapp

keep the fun going… Nook June kit

I love this kit.. it really keeps the scrapper happy…

and today Im going to share a LO  I did the other day….

Its a page with my darling daughter… I love the sparkles in her eyes.. and this pic is really a favourite..

I took it the other day when we where visiting the local airfield, looking at those ultra light airplanes they have there.. and my daughter took the chance of get a ride in one of the planes…

that was really something.. I guess I will have one more familymember besides daddy getting an airplane licence one day…

Playing with the gorgeous nook kit :)

Lets just face it.. The Simple Stories collection is just amazing.. love playing with it :)

How about some gift tags? Just add twine and they are done :)
