The last weeks has been extremely stressfull at work - don't even get me started on the reason why. It has been so bad that I haven't slept very well at nights, I haven't been social at all, and I have had no energy to scrap or do anything creative.

They say "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger", and as I am still alive and the crazyness seem to have come to an end, I must be stronger, too - how nice to know *lol*

The urge to scrap returned, and to get my mojo flowing while waiting for MyScrapbooknook's October kit to arrive, I decided to use some sketches to start with. The last two at Creative Scrappers were perfect for some photos I had.

This summer must have been the lousiest EVER! But the kids haven't minded much - as soon as it was a glimp of the sun, they went to the beach to swim. In my opinion the water was too cold, but they didn't agree and define this summer as one of the best ever. This photos of DS8 and his BFF was taken during a summer pasty at the beach, hence the title.

Got to love this bright happy colors on this Fancy Pants collection, right?


I grow vegetables in my garden, and pulling up the carrots it's always fun: you never know what you get. last year we had a boy carrot, this year we're having fourfolds :-)

For this layout I pulled out some old Cosmo Cricket papers, the ever after collection, one of my favourite papers EVER, and played with rubons and other embellies found in my big pile. Are you like me, feeling good when it comes to seeing old stuff beeing used?


TGIF and life is back to normal. I'll be busy this weekend moving anything out from my scrap room and starting the reno process. I know it's hard work, and I'll probably not be back in there next week, but I'm really looking forward to getting rid of the ugly Thomas the Tank Engin wall paper which is there.

Have a wonderful weekend! Anything exciting coming up?

Så fina layouter Hilde! Dekorationerna på den översta är helt fantastiska! Så snyggt med lager på lager och härliga färger! Grattis till fyrlingarna! =) Skoj att gräva fram lite äldre papper. Ofta köper man ju bara nytt och glömmer det man köpt innan... Ha det gott!

oj visste inte att det fanns fyrlingmorötter - du är bäst på att scrappa oväntade men ack så intressanta ting ♥ och det är alltid lika härligt att besöka din blog för att se vad du hittat på
