Another LO from Winter flight, Icelandic winter
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Lucky me :-)
This is my first creative team. I´ve been a guest designer 3 times but I´ve never really applied to any CT calls, both because I'm a slow scrapper and I only do about 2-4 LOs a months and some CTs requirements are that you do 3-4 LOs a month.....so I would only be doing LOs with this designers stuff....not very good for you creative mind to stick to only one designer....especially if the designer style was not my style ;-)
So I´m happy happy :-)
There won´t be much scrapping for the next days, I´m busy doing Christmas stuff and my next project will be the Christmas card !

My Christmas Calendar
Here is a close up, under each frame there is a little note tied to a nail.
I used Mindy Terasawa´s Jolly lil Friends kit and stickers, just perfect for this project.
And here is Matthildur opening the first note this morning, very happy because her best friend from playschool was coming home with her to play :-)
And here is a picture of me and Matthildur in the main newspaper in Iceland :-)

Still working on these summer pictures from Tenerife, it´s nice to do summer LOs when it´s freezing outside ;-) Still need more hours to finish everything I have to do, including scrapping. I´m good if I manage one LO a week these days ! In this LO I used Fei Fei´s different strokes brushes and they are so cool. I was so lucky to win the brushes on her blog, thank you Shaui :-)

Love this ride

After two simple LO I had the urge to do something more...."not so simple" page. The original idea came to me on the treadmill this week, watching a music videa with Dido. So you have to be awake and look at your environment to get ideas !

Tree of hearts
Friday, August 8, 2008
This month I´m a guest CT for On Designs. I just love their design and it´s such an honor for me to be on their team. This is my first LO for them, Funky. It´s totally different from my style which is usally dreamy, mystical and flowery. But it´s good to step outside the box and try something new and this kit, Flower Power is the perfect kit to step outside the box !
