It's high time to blog!


Spring is a dangerous thing. Too many evenings I chose running instead of scrapping. And if I didn't run, I chose to spend those precious childfree hours with my husband. Didn't feel like scrappin' and I didn't want to push it. But now I am really getting worried about my dear Mr. Mojo. I had to try to get back in touch with him before he gives up on me :-) So... this is what we have accomplished together... Mr. Mojo and I...

The first one is about Linnea's wet (but yet dry) joy. She loves jumping and playing in rain puddles. Huge puddle = huge happiness :-) Wish I had as good rain clothes as she does!

I made the next one for Skrotboken. Just one of many beautiful memories from our honeymoon - red earth of Africa.

Both layouts are made using My Scrapbook Nook's April kit featuring Echo Park "For the Record". Isn't it pretty? I love, love, love the colors!

I hope that few of you can still find your way to my silent blog. I'll try to blow some life into this place again. Cause... you know... it did feel grate to scrap again :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

I carry your Heart

This is not good. I need to start creating more often. It seems like I can't handle more than one hobby at the time. I have started to work-out again (yey!) and somehow it automatically started to take from my scrapbooking. Balance. Balance. Balance. How hard can it be?

I've had this layout in my head for a while now. Man, it felt good to make a reality of it! This is how it turned out:

I'm still into this wedding-theme :-) I wanted to make a layout with this beautiful poem by E.E. Cummings. My lovely sister read it on our wedding and I could start crying just thinking about how beautiful it was. This is how it goes:

i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
    I fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant 
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart) 

And here are some close-ups:

Hope you are feeling better than I am. I got a cold again, had a high fever last night... stayed at home today... but a good thing - I got some time to scrap :-) Time to pick up Linnea now. Happy scrapping!

Thanks for stopping by!

April guest for Skrotboken

Hej alla glada! Hoppas ni har haft en skön helg! Min har varit alldeles för kort...

Jag har roliga nyheter. För ett tag sedan blev jag tillfrågad om jag ville gästa Skrotboken under april. Det var väl klart jag ville det! :-) Mitt första bidrag var till temat "Mobilfoto". Jag tar väldigt många bilder på Linnea med min mobil, mest för att kunna skicka dem till min familj som bor i Värmland. Nu MMS:ar vi inte riktigt lika frekvent som förr. När Linnea var liten blev det nog minst ett MMS om dan...

Till utmaningen valde jag att scrappa en bild på Linnea som säger allt om vad hon brukade tycka om att åka vagn. Nä... det blev aldrig nån större hit... Det var som att gå omkring med en tickande liten bomb som vilken sekund som helst skulle kunna börja gallskrika. Mysigt? Nä... inte speciellt...

I while ago, I was asked to guest a Swedish inspiration blog called Skrotboken. I was more than happy to accept :-) My first layout for Skrotboken was for the theme "Mobile photo". I chose to scrap a photo I took when Linnea was a little baby. The photo is from one of our (screaming) walks. No, she was never really a fan of her buggy... Crate's Emma's Shoppe was just perfect for this theme.

Papprena är Crate's Emma's Shoppe. Tyckte den kollektionen var helt perfekt, med den stora chipboard vagnen och allt :-)

Tror det kommer att bli tidig sänggång idag. Är hur trött som helst... Ett glas vin framför TV:n först kanske... Tack för titten och ha det fint!

It's only 8 pm, but I already feel like going to bed. So tired... A glass of wine in front of the TV first... maybe... Thanks for peeking in!
