Pencil Lines sketch #231

I had so much fun yesterday evening playing with the beautiful Emma shoppe line from Crate paper. I love it !!!!! I used Pencil Lines sketch #231.

My titles are almost always in icelandic but I had to use these gorgeous chipboards as a title for this lo. I adore these pics of my DD taken in January.

Supplies: Emma shoppe Crate paper, bazzill and EK success.

It's been a hard week

The last 10 days or so have been so hard on us. It all started with my little Silja getting really sick. She was so sick that she was admitted to the childrens hospital for several days. She had a really bad case of Respiratory Syncytial Virus. She is doing so much better now but I'm so tired that I haven't be able to do anything else than taking care of her and Sunneva. Hopefully that is about to change. I miss scrapping. This weekend I really wanted to do two things. I want to do my Project 12 lo for febuary and I want to do the Pencil lines sketch. I really love the sketch for this week. I did not have enough time to do both things and to tell you the truth I don't feel that inspired these days. But I did Project 12. I loved the sketch but I don't love how it turned out. I don't know where my mojo is but the lo lacks layering and details. It's way to plain. The journaling is about how much I dislike Febuary. Strange since I got married Febuary 22 the year 2003. Febuary this year was all about cakes and parties. We celebrated all kinds of things in Febuary. Silja was babtized and we celebrated our 8 year weeding anniversary. DH and Sunneva were sick to name few things from the journaling.

On track - two new lo's

I'm pretty happy with myself today because I'm on track with Silja's month album. Ok, I know she is only 4 1/2 months old but I'm still glad. I got the pics I took on her 3 and 4 months "birthdays" 2 days ago and I did both the lo's yesterday (well I finished them today).
My good friend Ása Lára gave me these awesome month cards from Little yellow bicycle before Sila was born and I have used them on her lo's so far. I was glad to see the the 3 months die cut was green. This page may look like a boy page but I love to be able to do a green lo's for her.
Title: 3 months
Supplies: Basic grey (some old paper), Bazzil, Maya Road, Stickles, MME, Prima, American Crafts, Little yellow bicycle and MLS.

And here is the 4 months lo for her album. I was saying to my hubby that I wish I had done this for Sunneva also. I have created lo's over the years using pics taken on her birthday and I have written a long text about how she is at each age but I don't have lo's with journaling about the first months in her life. I have 12 pics taken 17th of each month the first year but no journaling. I kept a diary for her at the time. Maybe I could use that one for journaling ???? Well I'm not sure what to do.

Title: 4 months. Supplies: Bazzil, MME, EK success, Teresa Collins, Making memories, Little yellow bicycle, Basicy grey, Tim Holtx and bazzil.

Listening: To the radio
Eating: Nothing
Drinking: Coffee
Wearing: T-shirt and skirt
Feeling: Happy
Weather: Gorgeous snow and sun
Wanting: Silja not to be sick anymore
Need: to do some grocery shopping
Thinking: Nothing special
Enjoying: Some me time
Wondering: how long Silja will sleep
Planning: What to do for the rest of the day

Pencil Lines sketch #229

Slipe "N" slide was a total hit here last Summer. This is my first LO using pics of Sunneva and her friends sliding. I used a Pencil Lines sketch #229 as a base.

Title: ...and slide
Supplies: Basic grey, Bazzil, Little Yellow Bicycle, Queen&Co, American Crafts, Imaginisce, Tim Holtz, EK success and Studio Calico.

I used for the very first time a Huey's Color Mist from Studio Calico. You can you see it on the pink Basic grey paper (the background paper) and the sky stamp. I love it. I have been so afraid to try it out but I think I may be hooked.

No my diary list today...feeling to tired.

A fantastic day

This day was the best. I woke up with the girls and spent some quality time with them until noon. Then I had a crop date with my darling scrapgirls. It was so great to get out of the house for few hours. The girl who hosted the crop is also my neighbor so it only took me 3 minutes to walk to my house to breastfeed Silja. I had so much fun just scrapping and talking. One in the group wasn't able to come and we missed her but hopefully we'll be doing this again soon.

I did 2 one page lo's and 1 two pager.

This one I did using Pencil lines sketch #228. Great sketch for these pics of Sunneva in her Christmas Dress 2010.

Title: The Dress. Supplies: Bazzill (it's a white background, sorry for the bad scan), gorgeous christmas line from 3ndypapir.no (I love it !), American Crafts, Cricut, MME and EK success.

I love how the American crafts flower ribbon matches 100% with the roses on the dress.

I'm in love with all the lines from Echo Park. I think I have bought all lines from them except two. I can't wait to buy their latest one called Playground. It's so perfect for scrappers with kids. Anyhow this one I did using a pic of Silja when she is 6 weeks old. So cute. The title Cutie. Supplies: Coredinations ColorCore, Bazzill, Echo Park, Maya Road, Marvy Uchida and Jewel Tone Scrapbooking (the felt stickers).

I did not finish the 2-pager so I'll be uploading it later on.

In other news I can tell you that I fell of the wagon. Yes, I went on a little shopping spree and bought the Emma Shoppe line from Crate paper. I just HAD to have it and since I had fallen in the first place I HAD to buy few other supplies too. You can judge me ! What I'm thinking is that I can fall once of the wagon but only once. I know I'm hopeless.

Listening: To nothing
Eating: Nothing
Drinking: Water
Wearing: My pajamas
Feeling: Great, had such a good day
Weather: Beautiful winter weather. Snow.
Wanting: To have my wish come true (not hopefull though)
Need: To go to sleep soon
Thinking: That I should go straight to bed when I finish this
Enjoying: A good day's work
Wondering: If I will go to the gym tomorrow
Planning: To eat healthy tomorrow

Monday Song - Tori Amos Winter

The Monday song is one of my all time fav song. I love Tori Amos. When I was given birth to Sunneva in 2003 I had her CD little earthquakes on for few hours. I'm a big fan of good lyrics and this one is fantastic.

Anyhow I bought this cute and adorable book called Moomin's Little book of Numbers for Silja the other day. I LOVE the Moomins. This book has the most beautiful color combos. So I'm putting it on my bucket list of scrapbooking. I'm going to create Lo's using these pages as color inspiration.

Talking about gorgeous colors. This is a lo I finished today. I love the colors in this LO.
