Lily Bee-LOVE

Hi all.

I'm in LOVE!
Yes, that's right - oh, no, no new boyfriend!! NO WORRIES!
But a new PAPER-LOVE.
The papers they design are SO awesome! (and they work super-fab along with 3ndypapir too! :) look HERE )
Lily Bee recently had a awesome minialbum contest over at their blog. SO inspiring!
The theme for the contest is "Just be ME".
I created this little minialbum with the awesome Lily Bee "French couture" and "three little birds" die cut frames and patternd paper. I really had a blast making this minialbum - and when I look at it it makes me happy.
Most of the embellishments are handmade, wollen, felted, chrocheted.... I LOVE to create and make stuff so this mini is really a part of what I think it is to be ME right now.
The pictures are of me - things and people that means the world to me - a little window into what it is like to " be just me" right now - may 2009.

Reflect

This week it is Lynns word up over at One little word - and the word is a really good one, after having a wonderful party, we are now REFLECTING on our blessings.
Here is my take on the word - a little mini-album - reflecting on 2009, our family, our kids, our love.
I'll fill this album with pictures and little memories from this year - and plan on giving it as a birthday-gift to somebody in our family. ;)

Allmost all papers (except the MME inside-cover and the Basic-grey birdies) used for this mini are 3ndypapir.no design Lene solhaug and Gudrun Loennecken

So, please come over to the One Little Word blog and join our REFLECTIONS and get a chance to win a super beautiful prize from LilyBeedesign.

It was a great party

It was a great party over at OLW this month celebrating OLWs 2nd birthday. It was totally fun with SO many participants and SO many comments. 390 comments to go trough!! And all the wonderful work of art all the wordsters shared with us. Thank you!!

Scrapping across the universe

It's all about FRIENDS over at scrapping across the Universe-blog this month. So run over and check it out. Great challenge and great prizes.
The challenge is:
"can you scrap about a great time you had "just hanging" with your buds."
I had a blast scrapping this LO about my family hanging out with our favourite friends in Sjøvegen.
We love to enjoy the outdoor-activities, having a campfire, let the kids play, laugh, talk and relax. :) What would life be like without friends?? for me friends are SO important - they make my life bright and fun and filled with happy memories. :)

sunday blogging

Had a really busy sunday today. First off to the vikingship-museum with my 11 yo and his class at school. Had a wonderful day, looking at the old ships, playing viking-games outside, eating viking-food and watching all the activities.
Then off to another gathering listening to my oldest son playing the trumpet.
Wonderful, but busy.

Finally got home and had some time to play with my papers and scrapbooking-stuff.
I have really tried to have a little spring-clean in my scrapbooking-stuff this weekend. It is alot left to clean - but anyhow - it feels SO good. Wanted to just start creating right away! :)

This LO was made inspired by this months prompt over at the "creative type"-blog. Totally loved the prompt this time! "hand job".
I wrote all my journaling by hand on the back-paper in the prima-package. Love the turqouse and the cute edges. :) (can't throw it away - LOL) Also made my title by hand. used my black amC-pen and filled in with a green-silver gelrol pen. :)


And this weekend it was my turn up over at Lotus paperie. Please come over and say hello!!

mSB-blogHOP

If you've just happened upon on my blog today, you'll want to see what the myStamp BOX Blog Hop, this National Scrapbooking Day, is all about; check out the myStamp BOX blog at 5 pm EST, to start on this fun journey and a chance to win some fun new stamps! And post a link back to the mSB blog. And make sure to post a comment here on my blog too :) :)



I can tell you, this time, the awesome mSB design-team decided to share some of their sketches with you. So here is my sketch. I've used it for fast and simple bithday-cards.



Spring is time for lots and lots of birtdays in our family, and everybody loves to recieve a handmade card. So my solution has been to make a sketch based on the cool and versatile set "Happy Word Jumble" and use the words as a "centerpiece" on my card. here are two cards I made using my sketch in two different ways (and as inspiration. )







If you are one of those happy blog-hoppers this is the last blog on the journey, and next you are up to is to go straight back to the my Stamp BOX-blog.


Hope you've had a fun journey with us today.


Happy national Scrapbooking day!
