Nephew's birthday


My nephew Robin turned eight the other day and since I did a sign for Max I thought I'd better make signs for the rest of the cousins too.
Robin is really in to superheroes and spiderman is one of his absolute favorites. I want him to be able to use the sign as he gets older so I didn't use any images of spiderman. Instead I used Tim Holtz mask with the web and a ribbon that looks like web. The letters are from a box I bought in Estonia, the R is embossed from a foam stamp from Heidi Swap, more Tim Holtz grungeboard. :) Robin said that he liked it and I believe him.

Old photos of me...


This time I have used some old photos of me. My father liked to experiment with his camera and I often ended up being the model for his experiments. The camp was in the beginning of summer but the red and orange gjve an autumn feeling.
A friend who looked at my blogg wants me to show the process of making an LO. I have given this some thought and I think I will try it. The LO I've started now is of my daughter and I guess I could try to take som pics of how I get to the finish line.
The red and orange one is from a camp I attended every year and I always stayed in my friend Sabine's orange tent.

Landstoken

Today they arrived! The stuff I sent for from Landstoken. There was the spiderweb mask, the chipboardalfabet, the clear stamp, the samll letters, and a suprise! A stamp from their own collection. :) Always nice to get something extra. So now I can make the picture for my nephew. But not today :( The boys are away to a soccer match and I am taking care of my daughter.

Shopping

So I went shopping with my sister last Friday but I didn't find what I was looking for. :( The Tim Holtz mask with the spiderweb was sold out everywhere! When I got home I ordered it online so I hope it gets here in the next couple of days so I have time to finish the gift for my nephew.

I really enjoyed showing my sister the world of scrapbooking. I have thought that it would make a great hobby for her but I have tried not to nag about it too much and now she has found it out for her self. I think we are close but not the way where we constanly call each other and hang out all the time. I enjoy her company and we have a great time when we do things together, and it is even better if our brothers are there too. I feel lucky! :)

What's happening?

Not much... I'm going shopping tomorrow to find stuff so I can make a name-plate for my other nephew (he turns 8 next week). I'm really excited about this because my sister will come along. She wants help finding stuff for an album she started about her baby boy Teodor.

I'm waiting for my first number of Creating Keepsakes. They have great offers if you want to subscribe.

I borrowed some books on origami at the library. Unfortunately I had to return them before I got to write about them here. I think you can get a lot of tips from them though so check your local library for books about origami. :)

I hope I can get som scrapbooking done this evening. I'm going to put som things together for my sister too. I will not get anything done this weekend, that's for sure. Busy, busy, busy!!

A wedding, a christening and great grandparents

I never seem to get my pictures the way I want them here ...











Saturday I went to the wedding of a childhood friend. It was so beautiful! She looked just lika a princess and they really had the princess wedding!! I made a card for them and the gift was a.... scrapbook album of course! The bride said that she will start scrapbooking after the wedding so I thougt it would be a great gift.

Sunday my nephew got bapticed (a rough weekend). I was going to make a card to go with the frame I bought but I ended up making a picture/name plate in stead. I really like it. :)

I get inspiration from scrapping with my friends and this LO of my father's grandparents has influences from both Ammi and Anna. I know, the E could have been placed further up but... something is always crucked in the things I do.
