Her har jeg laget en side basert på forrige ukes søndagsskisse hos Studio Calico. Tittelen skulle egentlig være en annen, men jeg falt litt for denne ferdigtrykte fra Crate. Bildene er fra forrige innlegg, og tittelen beskriver min store hobby :=) (Ble i grunnen ganske fornøyd med denne)

Her er noen kort jeg laget til 2 kollegaer som har fått guttebabyer. Nå viste det seg at den ene guttebabyen egentlig var en jentebaby, men pytt sann, lyseblått er jo lekkert til små jentebabyer også, ikke sant?
Noen nærgående detaljer med det flotte tastaturet mitt i bakgrunnen...

Her er mitt bidrag til Skissedilla nr. 107. Alt jeg har brukt (bortsett fra en knapp og litt blingeling) er fra premien jeg fikk i posten på fredag for å være månedsvinner i februar.
Og her er premien i sin helhet:
Det er første gang jeg har vunnet noe med premie, og det var kjempegøy, syns jeg!!

Her er en side jeg laget etter skisse nr. 3 i kurset "Sketchbook 3". Det viser oss 3 høner i flokken. Elise elsker denne typen solbriller, men de har den ulempen at fotografen alltid kommer med på bildet (uten sammenheng forøvrig med tittelen...)
Har brukt bare de nye Stella & Rose arkene som er så fine at det gjør nesten vondt å skjære i dem!

Jeg er blitt fullstendig besatt av å lage kort for tiden. Etter at jeg begynte med å lage "på lur" kort, er det mye morsommere å holde på med. Tidligere, når jeg måtte lage kort på en halvtimes varsel, ble det rimelig stressbetont, men nå har jeg mye bedre tid til å prøve og feile! Her er litt av det jeg har på lur nå:
Her er noen søte små kort i 10x10 cm, med pynt utenpå og inni!
God helg til alle som er innom! Have a nice weekend!

Denne siden laget jeg til palett nr. 52 hos "The Color Room". Ikke mine farger i det hele tatt, derfor endte nok min side opp ikke helt riktig i forhold til paletten. Eller, kanskje ikke så borte vekke allikevel når jeg får tenkt meg om..
Dette er i hvert fall fargepaletten og skissen:
Ble ikke sånn superfornøyd med denne siden, men jeg har i hvert fall pyntet opp lit med glitter og stas!

The summer of 1986 we took out on a long and winding road trip in Europe. Much more long and winding than our old and tired car was designed for. We even brought a small tent that we used on several occasions.
We started out with the ship across the ocean to Newcastle. The first day in England we spent the night in the small and very boring town of Grantham. This was the home town of Margaret Thatcher we later found out, and that certainly must have marked her for life...
After a few days on the south coast (Brighton and Weymouth) a new ferry transported us to Jersey. Very, very lovely iceland with nice beaches and marvelous food!
Another ferry took us to France where we stayed at a Chateau Camping and visited Arromanche where the allied forces landed on the D-day.
The next destination was Paris where we had planned to meet some friends for a few days. We met beneath the "Arc de Triomphe" on the same time that there was a happening of some sorts with thousands (probably) people. The stay in Paris was filled with strange experiences; The hotel was the worst that I have ever seen.. we moved out the next day, found a new hotel with a norwegian woman working in the reception; it was impossible to change money so we ended up with MacDonalds for dinner. After this we were rather exhausted, and sent the car by train to Marseilles. We took the TGV.
This is a little book that contains the whole story.
We had some days at the French Riviera where we camped some nights in Bandol and some nights in Cavalaire sur Mer. Having been very good and saved a lot of money, we wanted to treat ourselves with two nights at a hotel on the Italian side of the border. Someone had told us that everything was cheaper in Italy. This turned out very wrong for us...
We chose the wrong hotel (for us) - our old wreck (on the French side we had a punctuation and had to buy a new wheel) looked quite misplaced next to the Jaguars and Mercedeses on the parking lot. The next morning we went for a quick trip into town just to get some money, but ended up spending the whole day and a serious amount of money at a garage to fix the car (the exhaust pipe fell off..) When we came back the hotel took the rest of our money for washing a small bag of clothes.
After that we decided that the best thing to do was to drive home as fast as possible to avoid any more trouble. (It was not over - we had to drive through Switzerland and the Swiss sure knows how to suck the money out of you...) Also visited Jeanette and Roland in Weil on the way.
The next trip we took was in 1987 when we bought a charter trip for the first time (to Greece). At least we didn't have to bring the old wreck of a car. The holiday was wonderful except for the temperature that didn't drop below 40 deg C, day or night, for a week. Living in a hotel with no air conditioning forced some creative thinking to be able to sleep at night.
The also took a trip to Turkey where we visited Ephesus, an old Roman city. Great, but hot experience.

Today I got a pleasant surprise at the post office..
This is my Metropolitan kit (december?) together with all the sales items from black friday.
I was waiting patiently for my kit to arrive before Christmas, but all my trips to the mail box was in total vain. I thought this may be connected with very busy times at the postoffice with all the Christmas presents, so I didn't pursue the matter further.
On Dec. 28 we went on a two week holiday in Florida, and during this time I received a notification from the post office, a 2nd notice they claimed. Because it was a second notice, they gave me only 4 days to pick up the package, and being in Florida, this was of course impossible. Therefore, all my scrappy goodness was returned, and the SC box has no return address on it...
However, miraculously, the kit appeared at SC's office a few week's ago, and here it is, 3 times across the Atlantic Ocean:
Quite overwhelming, I have no idea where to put it all...
