Yeah, and then I kind of went a little bit over the top with some mist and ink... You see, I went to a crop Monday night, and I couldn't seem to find any inspiration at all. So I went back home and got some mists and ink, and a paintbrush, and thankfully, my mojo came back!

When we got home, I flipped through my papers from Riddersholm Design and found these from the Turqoise Hills collection. They couldn't be more perfect for this photo, could they? Just look at the colors.
I've used the sketch for the ongoing challenge at Challenge Me Happy - my new fav challenge blog (and I'm not saying that just because I happened to win their first challenge - I like the diversity of their challenges - it's not only sketches, but different things every time and so much fun)

Today I have one layout to share. It's made from Sketch 164 at Creative Scrappers. I loved this sketch, it really got me thinking outside the box as far as placement of the photos go, and also I have only used tiny scraps of patterned papers for this one.
The papers are from Inkido, and I kind of adore those wonderful butterflies that I've cut from one of the papers. They seem to have ended up on quite a few layouts I've made lately. Aren't they just beautiful? I think Inkido is one of my favourite brands just now! :)

This is my little girl, at the farmhouse, watering some plants. This is really what summer is all about, isn't it? Just relaxing, taking care of the plants once in a while, and just relaxing...
So, if you haven't checked this challenge out, do it, because there are some really nice prizes, and the sketch is just fab!
I've used the fabulous 5&Dime collection from October Afternoon, which was in the July kit from My Scrapbook Nook.

Here's a little closeup of the flowers from Petaloo, that I have misted and painted, and I also put some glitter on the edges of the white one.
That's all from me for today. Happy Sunday, everyone!

The photo is of me and my sister Anna on a midsummer's eve a long, long time ago, and these papers from Inkido are truly perfect for the occasion, aren't they?
So, tonight I'm finally online here at the farmhouse, for real. I just tried out my superspeed internet connection via iPhone, and works. YAY! We just got back from a walk, trying to sneak up on some roe deer on the meadow by the creek. We saw one, but the kids didn't manage to be quiet for very long, so it set off into the woods, barking like crazy. That's OK though, we did get to see it for a short while, and it will most likely be back tomorrow. I just love this place!
Take care, everyone, and have a great weekend! I know I will.

I'm just stopping in for a short post today, showing you a little mini book in a box that I made for Riddersholm Design. I really love the teals and browns of this collection, Turqoise Hill's.

I've used Distress ink to color the Petaloo flowers - for the all purple ones I mixed some ink with water and used a mini mister to spray the paint onto the flowers. While the flowers were still wet, I used a soft paintbrush to paint the petal edges darker with ink.
The white flowers, I just sprayed with water and then painted the edges of the petals the same way I did the purple ones.

Also, I've won Challenge #9 at Get Picky!
And I just thought I'd do some challenges just for the fun of it, and getting my creativity started, I never expected to win any. So I'm one happy little scrapper right now!
This layout is made with a photo of my kids. The journaling criteria was to write who the person on the photo is and at least one fact about them. These are my kids, and I've written about how much they fight and argue all the time, and the only thing that can bring them together and make them agree is when it's goofing around time, or being up to some sort of mischief.

Anyway, I managed to squeeze in some orange with it, and this is how my layout turned out in the end, a mishmash of Lily Bee, Echo Park and Maja Design papers. And guess what? I sorta like it!
So, here's my take on their sketch #162. Once again I've used some fabulous papers from Inkido's Forever Summer collection, this time in purple shades, which is perfect for my little girl, who suddenly grew out of the pink age and is now mad about purple instead!
