Toiletpaperroll-card :)

I'm not sure if that's the correct word in English, but hopefully it is!
I had fun making this card that I've noticed other scrapper's have made recently. It was very easy. I've used leftover patterned paper and some bling-bling and a clear stamp from Inkadinkado. The tag is bought in a crafts store called Panduro, I've distressed and put a stamp from Inkadinkado on it. The ribbon is from Bo Bunny.
Hope you all have a nice May 1st! I'm also having a day off on Friday, so I'm having quite a vacation with my husband and son traveling to the grandparents on the West Coast of Norway.
I'm sure I'm gonna miss them, but I've planned to do a lot of scrapbooking, besides from a party on Saturday evening. Friday I'm meeting a good friend for scrapbooking! :)

2 birthday cards!

These two cards were made these last evenings. I'm going to send them away, even though I'm pleased with the result and really would like to keep them :). The boy in the card is a Magnolia-stamp image. I like it! The wall is also a stamped image from Magnolia. I bought those stamps this last weekend.
Hope you like my cards also! Have a nice evening. I'm going to the park after picking up my son. To play with a friends daughter.

This page was made after a challenge on Mammanett. I'm not very pleased with it, but it's OK. I've basically used leftovers in my box. Hope you all had a nice weekend. :)

Nancys challenge!

Here's my card, Nancy! Sorry for the bad picture. ;) I had some trouble finding patterned paper that was nice together, but besides from that problem the challenge was really nice.
I've used to small clear buttons, that were almost alike. One is slightly bigger than the other.
It was fun to sew without thread, think I'll try that again.
I really liked the challenge! Thanks Nancy for giving away tricks to make nice-looking cards.
I used some patterned papers (left overs), a newspaper for making the flowers (the flowers are Quickutz dies) and a pin and a safety pin.


This weekend (tomorrow) I'm going with some friends of mine to a place outside of Oslo, called Lillestrøm. There will be stands with lots of scrapbookingstores! Really looking forward to do some shopping! :-D

New page!

I made this layout last evening after I had worked with my exam. I'm quite pleased with it. The picture is from last Spring and I really love the picture of myself and my son together.

The weather is still beautiful!

Hi everyone!
Because of great weather outside, I haven't been doing any scrapbooking lately. Last evening my little family went to IKEA and we bought a bookshelf/toy shelf for our son. We also bought a TRIPP-TRAPP from Stokke (which is a children high chair). And we bought a new baby seat for the car, since we left our other car seat at my husbands parents who live in the west coast of Norway.

Anyway. The shopping was ok, because everybody else were outside in the nice weather.
Hope to do some scrapbooking tonight, though. Maybe try to do the challenge on a card that Nancy made.

Enjoying the sun!

This last weekend has been superb when it comes to the weather! Both Saturday and Sunday has been perfect! Not a cloud on the sky.

Saturday I had to work on my account exam. It's not very much to do, but I don't want to sit to the last minute like last time. So this time I worked a lot on the exam Friday, and some hours on Saturday. After working with the exam, me and to friends went to a scrapbooking store, outside of Oslo. I didn't spend a lot of money, because I'm going to the StempelScrap-messa Saturday.

After shopping with my friends one of my friends and I went to a cafe and had an early dinner with my husband and son. My husband left for a party and my friend and I played (I played and she sat looking...) with my son.

Sunday was beautiful! After my friend left, about noon, I hook up with my husband in the park. We had a pizza outside (at a cafe). Lovely. Then we walked around with our son, enjoying the sun and beautiful weather!

Today the weather is as beautiful as ever! :) Hope you all have a nice week!

3 new layouts!

I've made these tree pages these last days and for the first time I've made two "12x6" layouts! I think it's fun to make pages in differendt sizes.

The one to the left is called Focus, I think my son has a good expression on his face ;).
The nr 2 from the left is called "oops", and it's a funny story behind that picture. My son was playing in the kitchen when I was making dinner. Suddenly he had removed some kitchen utensils and had climbed into one of the drawers...
The third page is a with a picture from a traintrip made in April 2007. A clean and simple layout, but I kinda like it!

Hope you like 'em too. Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Sleepover :)

Today my nephew almost 13 years old came for a sleepover. He's playing a lot with Peder, which is fun (mostly for Peder). He really likes to play with his cousin, even though Peder doesn't talk much.
It's sweet to see them together.

I've made a couple of layouts lately, one is done for a competition, so I can't post it yet. The other is a 12x6 layout. It's cool to make pages in different formats (sizes).

My husbands out watching football tonight, he promised to be home before midnight.

Hope you all have a nice weekend!

4 days

This picture is of our son when he was newborn. He was only 4 days old on this picture. Beautiful? I think so. :)
He looks so peaceful and content.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a nice weekend! :)

Sleep (sove)

This page is with a picture from our Vietnam holiday. We had a really hard and long trip from Norway, via Shipol (Amsterdam), via Singapore, to Saigon. Finally when we arrived the hotel in Saigon, Peder fell asleep. The next morning, he slept long, almost mid day.

Bloom where you are planted

This page is done with a transparent overlay, which I've never used before. It was something I think I'll try again. I cut the transparent overlay (which was "12x12") and covered my picture and the bottom of the page with the flowers.

Hope you enjoy it! The picture is from our vacation in Vietnam this February.

Thank you for looking! :) Have a nice evening.

JULEN (Christmas)

This page I started on a couple of days ago and finished yesterday. The picture is from Christmas 2007.
I'm not very good at making xmas-pages and I don't really like to do them eighter. But, it's necessary to have one or two of them in the album, I think ;).

Tanks for visiting my blog. Please do leave a message if you'd like. :)
