True Love

Here's a short post for you today with a layout I made for KiAs Butik.
The very precious motif is my sweet sister Anna and her partner Totte. Aren't they just adorable together?

So, have a nice Friday everyone. Mine has just started, and I will be spending it digging into LGR11, the curriculum we base our teaching on. It will be fun! Yeah, right... But absolutely necessary.

Dreams of France

I've been to France, once. It was ages ago, but nevertheless, it was magical. I was in Paris, and I spent a wonderful week in Provence. When I got some papers and embellishments from Prima's En Francais line, I started looking through the photos from that journey, and I started longing to go back there. I might, pretty soon, because the beauty of Provence in May really took my breath away back then, and looking at the photos, it all came back to me.

All the supplies for these layouts are from Scraplagret, and guess what? They are have cyber crop coming up in a couple of weeks! Read all about it here.

A lament to the old Volvo

As you might remember, our Volvo died. It was such a sad event (or not), which you can read more about here, if you'd like to know what happened. Of course I had to make a layout about it. The title says: Rest in peace, oh suicidal old Volvo.
Sure, it was a rather crappy old car, and we were thinking of getting a new one either way, but we weren't quite prepared to see it go just like that.
The layout was made for a challenge at En Liten Butik. The challenge was to use stamps, banners and color splashes. I've splashed Glimmer mist and white acrylic paint, and I've used a ledger stamp, from Unity Stamps.
So, now that the old car died, of course we had to get another one, right? After three Volvos in a row, we decided to go in another direction and choose something a bit different. When P first mentioned that he might like a Kia, I was a little bit sceptical, but we started asking around, and spoke to quite a few Kia owners. As it turned out, everyone was more than pleased with their cars. So I caved in. And here it is. A lovely red Kia Cee'd. Well, it isn't ours just yet, but we're waiting anxiously to go pick it up. I can tell you, there's a lot of anticipation going on in our house at the moment. I'm dying to get the car and go for a loooong ride!

It seems I'm starting to come out of that troublesome scrapblock I've been in since long before Christmas. I've got some well-needed vitamin injections in the shape of some of Prima's lovely new collections, and thus I feel like I'm back on track again! Lovely! So, I'll be getting some scrapping on tonight, I think!
Have a great Sunday night everyone!
