This is for Denmark

This week has been all about the Eurovision Song Contest in our house. The kids and I love the whole thing, and we have been listening through the songs over and over again. Our initial favourites were Hungary (a bit of a surprise, there) and Iceland. Eh, well, Agnes has been crazy about the Finnish Bridezilla since she heard that song for the first time, but of course, that song would be right up a seven-year-old girl's alley.

We loved Denmark's song too, of course. Who wouldn't? It's amazing. We're extremely thrilled that Denmark won the ESC, and I think it's hilarious that the contest next will be held only 20 minutes away from where it was yesterday. The fact that Emmelie is half Swedish doesn't hurt either. WTG, Denmark, and congratulations, dear neighbors.

What way would be better to celebrate this occasion onm the blog than with a couple of things from the amazing Danish manufacurer, the design team of which I am a little bit extra proud of belonging to today, Riddersholm Design. So here's a layout and a card for you today.
 The layout is made with the fabulous Chantilly Dawn collection.
The card has papers from the Bello Pastello collection.
Once again, congratulations Denmark, and I can't wait to see the show on the other side of the bridge in a year!

Mr Grumpy-face

Here's a layout I made with a sketch from Skissedilla.
Yup, that is Mr Grumpy-face. Luckily, we don't see him that often, but when we do, it's most likely because we won't let him use the computer, or something like that. Lucky for him, he's adorable even if he's grumpy.

A different take on the same sketch

As it turns out, Berry71bleu has a challenge this month in collaboration with OUAS, using the same sketch. So, I made another layout based on it. The journaling is on the back of the tag under the photo. I really wanted it hidden, and the tag is double sided, which suited me perfect.
Berry71bleu also had a rule to use chipboard on the layout, and a few of the pennants under the photo are chipboard ones.

Also, it's really a perfect day to add this layout to the blog, because today is that little man's 10th birthday! Happy, happy birtday, my bright, sweet, amazing boy. I love you 4ever!

OUAS May challenge


I have a layout for you today, which I made for the May sketch at Once Upon A... Sketch. The theme was numbers, and the title reads: 10 little fingers. I also put on some washi tape with numbers, that I had left on my desk after using it on another project.
Of course, the ten little fingers belong to my nephew Samuel, and I have some hidden journaling tucked away behind the photo.

Have a nice day!
