Arctic Circle

I did this LO for the Retrospective Challenge #5 at Scrapbook-Trends.

My grandparents used to live in Rovaniemi and we visited them every summer. The best thing I knew was when we went to visit Santa Claus in his office. Santa Claus’ Office is right near the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland and you can meet him every single day of the year except, of course on Christmas Eve and Day. The Artic Circle has at least one day a year the sun never sets and it is famous for its Northern Lights (also called Fox Flames).

Before and After

This LO is for a challenge at Challengetime.

As you can see under my eyes I didn't get much sleep the night before my wedding day. Thank god for makeup and for my dear cousin Maarit who can work wonders with the right makeup. I think I looked quite beautiful that day :).

Star Wars

This is not one of my best LO's ... There is something missing there but I can't figure out what... maybe I should have used more PP or something else. And I relly need to buy some Alpha stamps!!

Koh Samui

My newest LO is about our 3½ weeks Asia vacation that we made during February and March 2006. We staid 10 days on Koh Samui where we went out diving with Easy Divers . I did a bit different LO as I wanted it to be like an underwater scene.

Minimalistisk plus 1 Challenge

At the forum at the challenge for this month is to make a black&white LO with a little color in it. I've chosen a photo of my parents when they got married. I turned it into a black&white photo and changed back a few of the flowers in color.

Phuket Zoo

The first time I went to Thailand was in 1999 and I fell in love with the country the minute I stepped out of the airplane. The Thai people are such nice people! I love their kindness and their food. Since 1999 I've been 3 times in Thailand and I will continue to travel there as often as I can afford it.

These two pictures are taken in the Phuket Zoo
