Hi my friends.
Just wanted to pop in and say happy, happy summer!
I'm ready for vacation. Ready for our big journey and adventure to Los Angeles, California.

I have created this travel journal. Inspired by the "on the road" minialbum by Ali edwards.
I will try to keep my little notes and memories in this book, and add my thoughts and capture the moments along the way.
this is just a few of the pages in the book I wanted to share with you.

Now big hugs you all!!

This has been a beautiful day here in oslo.
the weather was good and I celebrated my day at my mothers house.
My kids and my mom made delicious food and the girls made me their special crunchy chocolate cake.
We had a great time outdoor in the sun.
it was all good.
Thank you mom, Edvin, Iver, eirun, sol.

When we arrived home Edvin and Eirik had arranged a wonderful surprise for me:
I found this romantic, beautiful, new bench in my garden, along with a basket full of yummy strawberries.
It just couldn't be any better!
And, at last I got some cozy, wonderful scrappy time - just for me

in the spotlight

Hi friends.
I'm so happy and honored to be in the spotlight over at the Cosmo Cricket blog this weekend.
You can se more of my projects, with the brand new "odds and ends" collection, and learn more about me if you visit todays blogpost at the Cosmo blog.
See you there!

The layout above is made using the new "odds and ends" line. LOVE the colors and the beautiful patterns.
The layout is all about my mothers birthday. Our family gave her a new bike. She really love to ride her bike around the little city where she lives...and we found she needed a new one. The kids were SO happy to give her this gift. The girls decorated the cycle-basket with flowers before we gave it to her.

Thanks for popping by.
Happy weekend!

My sunshine :)

Hi friends.
Hope you are all fine.
Days are crazy and busy around my house.
As you know I'm working on my kitchen.
Right now I'm here with 4 kids, no stove, the fridge in front of the sofa in the living room, all the kitchen utensils in boxes around the house, no running water ( except in the bathroom ).
Yea, Life is good, isn't it!  :p
Now well
it eventually will be good
I just have to work on it 
I have now sanded the kitchen floor with a huge sanding machine, and I'm working on the coating with a special oil coating.
The carpenter is working on the kitchen cupboards and will finish them in time.
It will all be good!
:) :) :)

Now on to this weeks sketch challenge over at the 
Sketch 241 is up with special guest Sarah Jane - and sposored by her company Little Musings.
I had a lot of fun playing with these super cute digital stamps.
My layout is all about my little sunshine - the happy, creative, wonderful girl in my life.
She brings me so much joy.
And she LOVEs to write.
She writes little books, little stories and little love notes for all of us in the family. :)

This layout was made today.
LOVE this picture of  these fun, happy, wonderful boys.
I'm sure they will be something big one day.
One actor - one musician

This layout will probably be the foundation for a class I will teach in Austria in september :) :) :)
