August layout for Riddersholm Design

It's Monday today, but I had to stay at home from work with Albin, who has caught a cold. It's always like this - two weeks into the school term the bugs attack, and someone gets ill.

I have a layout to share today with the Fall Flea Market collection from Riddersholm Design. The photo is from this summer, and the days we spent in a rented beach house in Småland. The weather was perfect those days, and we spent a lot of time hanging out on the cliffs by the sea. I sometimes wish I had a house like that, on the beach, to spend warm summer days in. Actually, we do have a piece of land stretching down to the shore, and one day, I hope to be able to open up the woods out there just a little bit, and build myself a tiny cabin with a sea-view, and a path leading out to the little island that is part of our property. I know there are tons of rules and regulations that most likely will stop this from happening, but still... I might just park a litte vintage camper out there to use as a beach shack. I don't think anyone can stop me from doing that.

OK, enough with the dreaming, and let's just get back to the layout. I totally adore this sunburst paper from Riddersholm design, and the best thing is that I have it in both 12X12" and 6X6", so I can use it a lot... You will se a card with it in a few days.
Have a great day, everyone!

The European Scrap Battle

Well, as you can see, there hasn't been a whole lot of updating going om during the Summer... That is mostly because there hasn't been a whole lot of scrapping going on either. The weather has been way too great, and my mojo decided to hang out on the beach with me instead of working for me. However, I did stumble upon the registration form for the European Scrap Battle while briefly surfing the web on a Summers evening, and I decided to register for the Mixed Media, Layout and Card categories in hope of having my mojo back by now. I'm glad I did, because it turned out to be a major creativity boost. Here's what I did for battle #1 in the Card and Layout categories:

I was fortunate to move on in both categories, and yesterday the Mixed Media category also kicked off, so for now, I'm in on all three, and I'm almost ready to send in my work for battle #2. Wish me luck!
