…that I was the DT’s choice this week over at the fantastic sketch blog “Veckans Skiss“? Funnily enough I was NOT happy with this LO, but since I had made the LO after their sketch, I sent it in… Here it is:

…I SCRAPPED! Sunday afternoon I decided to take an hour to shuffle some stuff around in my scrap studio – and I ended up doing THREE LO’s! After two weeks of nothing – boom! They might not be the most complicated or amazing LO’s I’ve ever done, but I’m creating again, and my girls like them. And THAT has to be the most important thing!

As I am one to scrap recent photos more happily than old photos, I’m trying to challenge myself to do a little of both at the moment. So that’s what I did. I scrapped one old photo, one not so old photo,and one almost brand new photo. 🙂 For the first two LO’s I’ve used Little Yellow Bicycle papers & embellies. I seem to always go back to BRIGHT colours when I’ve been in a creative rut!

And for this next LO I used Echo Park “Victoria Gardens” and some LOOOVELY resin embellies from Halo Scrapbooking. You need to check that site out if you haven’t already!

I’m so happy to be scrapping again. Long may it last!

Coming back to life…

Posted by swewi on September 18, 2011

…after the flu of all flu’s. Gosh I’ve been so sick. Finally I am feeling better though, and will go to work tomorrow. Feels weird, after spending almost 2 weeks on the couch!

This has of course meant NO CREATING what so ever. Strange feeling it is, to not have the urge or slightest need to create. Anyway. I still have a LO to show you, for the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge! It’s a BOM challenge this time, go check it out!

I’ve used Echo Park “Country Drive” on this LO. Loooooove Echo Park as you know!

I’m hoping to get back into my scrap studio soon. I’m starting to miss it… Thanks for stopping by today!

I almost NEVER use green on my projects. It’s just not “my” colour. But now I have! 🙂 I used the latest kit from Studio Calico – “Boardwalk” and created the LO below for a sketch challenge. I quite like it. Probably because the green matches Elsa’s clothes, and because there’s red in there. I love red… 🙂 What colour do you almost NEVER use in your projects??

Stuff for Mollys

Posted by swewi on September 2, 2011

Just a quick post to share two LO’s that I have recently done for Mollys Scrapbooking! One with Sassafrass Lass products, and one with October Afternoon products. On both LO’s I have used OLDER photos, and it’s such a great feeling! I tend to scrap the latest and greastet photos, so it’s cool to have scrapped a couple that has been waiting to be dealt with for a while!


Also, my LO for the latest challenge over at Challenge Me Happy – a recipe this time!



Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
