{Walk with me} + some photos!

First: some photos! The first one is from yesterday. My son was playing football with his dad. He loves playing football! Look at his smile!
The second photo is from today. I took an extra day off, because
of the beautiful weather here in Oslo. Took my son to the beach at Bygdøy (Hukodden). He enjoyed the nice weather, the sand and the water.

This layout is with a photo from Crete. I just loved the photo. Especially in b/w. Used Prima pattern paper (I love this paper), some kind of jewellery to decorate tables with (I bought it for NOK 30). Other supplies: Prima, button, floss, bling-bling, liquid pearls, tag from Panduro, pebbles from MM and gromlet from MM.

Sunbathing and a swim in the sea!

Today we went together with a friend of mine and her almost 10 year old daughter to an island right in the Oslo-fjord. It's called Hovedøya (The Main Island).

We ate fresh spring rolls that my friend made and brought along, and chicken salad that I brought along. The food was good, but because of the heat, nobody was actually very hungry.

I have to say, the beaches in these islands sucks! There is no good sand, and when you bring along kids, you need good sand. So I think, next time we'll go to Bygdøy instead.

Ok, some photos from today:

I think the kids were very sweet, Peder took her hand, and they walked together. Peder liked her a lot. :)

The Oslo-fjord is beautiful on a sunny summer day:

AVREISE destination Crete!

New one! This one is with photos of Peder and his dad on the airport, before leaving for Crete. Peder was in his pyjamas, because it was so early, didn't have time to change. ;) They were laughing and having a good time, even though it was only about 6 a.m....

Used some old pattern paper of a map... from Karen Foster, and MM tiny alfa stickers, a gromlet from WeAre memory keepers, heart bling!, and stamps from Maya Road, bling and raindrops. Mesh and white paint around the edges of the photos. And ink! of course.

Details: (sorry for the picture, was dark outside, and didn't want the flash!

{Små ting teller}

Yes! I'm back, scrapbooking all day! So nice to have quiet and time to scrapbook! But this is the last day off, so from now on, only scrapbooking in evenings...

This was kind of fun and easy to make. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey. Finally found something to use this nice pattern paper for. :)

Used a lot of Prima and buttons this time, and Heidi Swapp heart and clock. Also some thread and floss. The stars are Queen & Co. Also used a key from Panduro. The little stamp is Maya Road, and the letters are... hmmm.. don't remember. Also used my Dymo (again). And ink!

{Summer love}

New one, made today! I just love the pattern paper from Autumn Leaves (Rhonna Farrer). The other pattern paper (Postcard) is from MM.

After beeing inspired by Xtina, I used som liquid pearls on the pattern paper. Nice. :) Thanks Xtina, for the idea. Also did som embossing (on the small butterflies).

{You make my day}

This was made last evening/night. Quite pleased with it!
Used a white cardstock from Bazzil, which I've painted with Crackle paint, it's so fun! Also used some brown ink on the cardstock. The edges are distressed and inked with Ranger vintage photo. Used only a few embellishments this time. The edges of the photos are inked with white paint. The photos are from our holiday in Spain in June. Peder was watching a boy playing in the pool, and was pointing and laughing - it was such a funny day!

If you doubleclick on the images you'll get larger images.

A new layout, made this evening. Peder was exhausted and was put to bed at 19.15 p.m. First day in daycare (kindergarden) was though! :)

The photos are from our holiday in Crete. Peder loved to play at the childrens play area. There was a swing, play houses and a big, big boat in wood. I used blue cardstock, and pattern paper from Rhonna Farrer, thickers, and Crackle paint and also embellishment: mesh, Maya Road and other things I can't remember the name of.

Quiet {moments}

Made this layout today, my first since returning from vacation. Quite pleased with it, in the end. The photo was taken in Spain this summer. My son was so quiet, after a long day in the sun and playing in the pool.

I had put on a dvd (Elias) and he lay on the sofa, and he was so beautiful.

A new day!

Waking up at 7 a.m. - looking out the window. The sky is blue, with only a few clouds. Think this will be a very nice day!

So today, I'll start 3 more days of vacation, at home. Will be scrapbooking and enjoying myself.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

More photos from the vacation!

My husband took this photo yesterday, our last day at Kiani Beach Resort! They had this play houses, small, for children, and Peder loved to play with/inside them. They had windows to open! What a smile! :)
This is a photo I'll scrapbook!

My husband and Peder opening a fortune cookie on a restaurant in Chania.

Throwing a rock into the sea!

Eating dinner, BBQ-night!

And last, but not least: a photo of myself, drinking red wine in a restaurant in Kalives. Mmmm....

What a beautiful girl!

Okay, I know it's a bit strange for me to put this photo here!
Look at this girl! She is sooo beautiful! And here smile... ah! Well, she smiled, and smiled! All the time! No wonder I was so impressed. She worked all day at Kiani Beach Resort. In the Beach Bar and in the Restaurant in the evening. And then back in the Beach Bar in the evenings... But she smiled. Even when she wasn't attending a costumer, she smiled.
So I had to take a photo of her, she was very shy. But I got one kiss on each cheek when we left last night. Told her, we'll probably come back next year. Maybe. Probably only one week. We'll have to se!

She's sooo beautiful.

Back home!

Yes, now I'm back! Don't think I'll be scrapbooking today, though. Too tired. Didn't get much sleep at the plane back home, and was at our appartment by 0530 this morning. Peder slept about 4 hours at the plane, he fell asleep right before take-off.

Slept about 5 hours this morning, before I woke up, and my dear husband didn't sleep more than 3 or 4 hours. So when Peder will have his nap, so will we :).

Looking forward to pick up some new photos from our vacation. I sent some photos online to during my holiday.

Hope to make something brand new tomorrow when I'm still having some days off, and Peder is going to daycare.

Still on vacation!

I'm stille here, on Crete! A beautiful island in the Mediterranian sea.
The greek salad is lovely with the greek feta-cheese. The people is friendly and serviceminded. We love the sea and the weather is beautiful. Every day! The last days are coming up. Returning back to Norway early Sunday morning. The plane leaves 0055 a.m. Sunday.

Okay, gotta go! Hope you all enjoy your holidays wherever you are!

Wednesday, July 9, 2008


Okay, I'm on holiday now, so there will be no scrapping for me, here. That's okay. I enjoy the sun, the sea and everything here. I thought I would get really sick, for not being able to scrapbook, but it's been no time for any scrapbooking!

Hope you all enjoy your summer, with or without scrapbooking. I've been visiting a few of your blogs, but I don't have the time to write. So I'll be postponing that 'till I get home!

June competition on MN

The rules were: one was supposed to use something one normally don't think about as scrapbooking supplies. I used a label from the clothing company Exit in the title (Exit light, enter night) and some light blue "ribbon" from a clothing. One was also supposed to use stamp(s). I used a swirl stamp from Automn leaves which I stamped on white cardstock, cut out and glued on. And one was supposed to use two different pattern papers! Thanks for your votes!

I've made a cute photo album with my Bind-It-All Machine, for the grandparents of Peder. They really love Peder, so it's always nice to send photos to them. My mother in law always calls to thank me the day she receives the gifts (photoalbums) I send. I think the album got quite nice.
