A Summer LO

There are only 2 days of January left and I have done 12 LO's and 4 cards. I can't believe it since I did not have that much time this month to scrap. These 12 LO's have been created when I have 10-15 minutes to spare.

This 2-pager took me "forever" to finish. Why ? Well I haven't had that much time the last few days because of my little girl. She really needs here mom to hold her these days.

I have this huge pile of pictures of Sunneva that I need to scrap and I'm working myself through them. I took these cute pics of her last Summer. The journaling tells her to always remember to enjoy the little things in life. Like flowers.

Title: Enjoy
Supplies: Zva Creative, Cosmo Cricket, Bazzill, Collage Press, American Crafts, Martha Stewart, EK Success, Prima, Skrapp og gaman (the gorgeous pink flowers) and scrap.is (the leaves pin)

Pion Design

I got few mintues today to play with the most beautiful paper ever it's from Pion Design and I bought it from an icelandic scrapstore Skrapp og gaman. Gorgeous paper ! I love it. I thought this pic taken when Silja was only 3 days old would be perfect with this paper. The gorgeous flowers are also from Skrapp og gaman.

Supplies: Pion Design, Skrapp og gaman flowers, Prima and Bazzill.

Beautiful Doodlebug

I'm struggling with scrapping style. I feel stuck. I feel like all the LO's I create look the same and are not good enough. My problem is that I love so many differents styles. I love vintage, shabby chick, lo's filled with details, I love clean and classic etc but what is my style in all of this.

I have found out that I'm happier with my clean LO's. The one that have clean and straight line. I love details so what I'm aiming for is straight lines, clean look and details.

This is a LO I started yesterday and finished today. It's not straight and clean and guess what I'm not that happy with how it turned out.

What I love about this LO are these two Doodlebug papers I used for this LO (the red one and the one with the hearts).

These pics were taken last Summer. Sunneva got her first Inline skates and she loved them.

This year I'm going to do at least 2 challenges. I have been wanting to the first one for few years now.
The first one is to create a 2-pager using pics from each month and the journaling will be about how the month was for us. Basically all the daily stuff. When I saw this Project 12 challenge on Davinie Fiero blog I thought it would be perfect for me to stay on track and stay motivated.
Another challenge I'm going to do this year is to take one pic each month of the family. I think it will be so much fun at end of year to see how much or how little we have changed. I saw this on this blog that's hosted by Tara Whitney. We will have 12 pics of the four of us at the end of this year. It will be my 4 people 12 times challenge.
I can't wait to start !

One of each

I have two more LO's to share. It takes my several days to finish one LO because Silja takes up all of my time and I love that but a girl needs some creative time, right !

Having two girls I tend to reach out for flowers as embellies. I need some ideas what to use other then flowers. If anybody is reading this blog and has some ideas for me please share. You could link up some ides for me.

Over the next few days I'm going to be focusing on creating several cards I need to do.
