What a week...

This has been a week full of worries, and unfortunately, things did not exactly turn out the way we wanted them this week. So, today, when all is said and done, I feel like a balloon that lost all of the air inside... I guess you all know that feeling. Well, one can put it like this: our weekend just opened up, and we decided to do the best with it, so tomorrow we are taking the kids out for some adventure... They will hopefully be really pleased with their old boring parents for once, because this summer has not been much fun for them, poor little ones. P and I have been so busy, and it was all going to come to an end today, but that didn't happen.

Anyway, here's a balloon that didn't lose air. It's made with the brand new yummylicious Steampunk Debutante collection from Graphic 45. Can you not love this? The colors, the patterns, everything about this collection is just so gorgeous!!! And I'm so lucky to be on the Graphic 45 DT and actually have these papers in hand, not just drooling over them on the screen, like I have so many times before.
See those gears and stuff? Sometimes having a 7-year-old boy that collects stuff can come in pretty handy, because I bribed him into give me some of his stash. LOL.

And then there is Hallowe'en in Wonderland... another must-have. It's already in shops, so what are you waiting for? Go buy!
I made a pop-up card with these papers. The little playing cards come from one of the papers in the 8X8" paper pad, and they are so darn cute! I love it that these papers come in both 12X12" and 8X8", because the smaller ones are perfect for cards. You can also see a few items from the Staples collection - the new line of G45 embellishments - the flowers, the trims and the TEA letters. Gorgeous, aren't they?
Here's the inside of the card where I've used a mix of cut-out designs and tags:

So, that's it for today. It's way past bedtime here, and it will be a busy day tomorrow. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hej! Tusen tack för din kommentar om oss och reportaget i Lantliv, och kul att du hittade till min blogg! Vad fin scrapblog du har, jag har försökt mig på scrap en del men jag har inte haft tid att hålla på med det så mkt jag velat. Men det är en hobby jag gärna skulle vilja ha, och jag suktar alltid efter fina papper och tittar ofta på fina alster som andra gör!

Hoppas du kan få lite inspiration till huset hos mig. Är det något specifikt du vill veta så är det bara att fråga på mail så svarar jag.

Ha det så bra och kul att hitta dig på nätet! :-)

Dina idéer undrar jag verkligen vart du får ifrån, härliga saker som en sjuåring måste gilla sååå himla mycket. Pop-uppkorten är en egen historia, hur du lyckas få till. härligt papper, synd att jag har köpstopp nu!

your hot air balloons are fantastic- I have been toying with the idea of constructing one out of wire and fabric and stumbled upon your beautiful creations!
