I feel happy...

My mother have made this beautiful silver necklace for me - and I got it yesterday.
Some of you might know how much work it is to make a necklace like this. She actually made all the little silver rings and bound it all together to create this heavy, beautiful chain.
I can't believe how much time and love she really put into this.
Thank you mom!! You are the best.
Love you!

Summer projects

Hi my friends.
First week of summer break here in Oslo. The weather is wonderful, the sun is shining and the kids love the carefree days.
I have made some summer projects with the wonderful summery fresh DeLovely papers by Cosmo Cricket.
Used some Helmar 3D squares to pop-dot all the pp-panels on this layout. Used some old glass pebbels and "raindrops" to add a more summery feel. :)

I actually made this bag for my mother on mothers day. I think she have used the bag almost every day after she got it. She proudly shows the pictures of her grand-children wherever she goes - and that makes me totally happy :) :)

I made the "picture-quilt" using a 12x12 inch page protector. I machine stitched all the squares and then stitched the protector to the bag.

On another note I'm SO happy and delighted to find one of my layouts in this issue of Creating Keepsakes in the "teen" section. I'm all smiles! :) :) :)

Have a great week - and enjoy summer!

This summer-greeting card (above) "wishing you sunshine"
And some little teachers gifts.
Shool is out tomorrow here in Norway, and we are all looking forward to summer vacation.
And what better idea than giving the teachers we love a little sweet present for the summer. Simple folded cards with yummy heartshaped chocolate inside. :)

Happy summer!!

happy 4

Nothing can make me happier than seeing my kids happy together.
I'm so lucky to have these 4 little persons in my household - they bring me so much joy. Just needed to put it down on a layout :)
I'll look at this layout and make sure I never forget the happy little faces and all the love they share .
Used Couture Cardstock and Cosmo Cricket "material girl" on this LO.

Hi my friends.
Long time no see... :)
I have enjoyed the nice summer weather here in Oslo this week. It has been busy, busy days with lots of stuff going on before school is out for summer next week.
Guess some of you have noticed my "Inspiration mondays" have already taken a summer break. Hopfully I'll continue this project in august when kids are back in school. But for now I'll enjoy the garden, the outdoor, the sun, the summer....
But no worries, i have no plans on shutting down my blog for the summer....LOL
I created the layout above for this weeks Color combo over at The Color Room. LOVE this weeks colors and the sketch. :)
ere are some close-ups too :)
On another note we'll have a fun Blog Hop over at my Stamp BOX on June 17th.
Make sure you join the fun!!

That's all for now.

Have a great day.
