Boba Fett

Christiane had this fun game posted so I decided to see who I truly am...

Hmm don't know what to say here.. I guess that part where it says people who mess with me should be afraid is kinda true ;). I do have a mean side too although I am mostly a shy and quiet person.

I haven't done any scrapbooking this weekend as I've been sick. I got some kind of stomach flue on friday evening at work and I've been throwing up all weekend. Today I am feeling much better though.

I miss my finnish roots

When people ask me where I come from I really don't know what to answer. It depends on where I am when they ask I guess... My parents are both from Finland but I never lived there. I only spent my summer holidays there. I have lived my whole life in Sweden. Up until 3 years ago I was finnish by passport. Now I have both a finnish and swedish passport. So.. when I am in Sweden I tell people I am finnish as I don't feel like a swede when I am there. When I am in Finland I tell people I am a swede because I don't feel finnish when I am there. When I am outside Sweden and Finland I am confused and don't know what I truly am but mostly I feel finnish ;).

Beyond Appearances had Nat as guest designer this week and she had a really great challenge that got me thinking. You were supposed to do a LO with the theme "I miss ..."

All my relatives live in Finland except for my parents and my sister who live in Sweden. Whenever I have free time or vacation I therefore always go "home" to Sweden. I don't get to see the rest of my relatives that oft.

This is my LO. Journal is hidden behind the photo.

Journaling: I don't get to visit Finland as often as I would like to. Whenever I have free time I go to Sweden as it is my "home", but what about Finland? I am finnish and my heart and roots are in Finland but when I am there I feel swedish. I am confused.

3 New LO's

I've managed to do 3 new LO's this weekend!! I had a good flow going on after I came home from the workshop that Nat, Christiane and Liz held yesterday. I had to work yesterday so I could only attend to the one that Nat held. I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about how to combine color.

I did this LO at the workshop. It's of my sister Eve (Evelina) who broke up with her BF a while ago and this LO is telling her to start fresh, start over and be positive to find someone new.

I finally got my photos that I had stored at my parents house. Now I can scrap more about ME as I didn't have any older photos here. This LO is made from the Scrapmuse kit. And it is showing me dressed up like a smurf with a red nose... hmm maybe it's a sick smurf? *LOL*

Journaling: I loved to play dress up when I was a child. This photo is taken back in 1983 when I had turned me into a smurf. I have no idea where the red nose comes from.

The third LO. Is made from a kit from Scrapfever. Photo shows my godson Emppu in Finland.

Easter Goody and photos from Berlin

Today I finally got to open my easter goody bag that I got from Mirija. It was a really nice surprise!! Look at all I got!! The foam stamps are exactly what I have been looking for and I love the buttons and flowers!! Thank you Mirija for the GREAT goody bag!!!

Now I only wish that my goody bag partner likes her gift :)

Last weekend we went to Berlin. Here is a slide show of the photos. You can also check out my flickr page.

Sneak peak revealed and other new LO's

This weekend I went to Berlin. We had a wonderful time discovering Berlin. Photos will be uploaded this week. I got the chance to meat Andrea and give her the birthday LO.

This is a LO about ME that I did for Melanie. She wanted to have Layouts from all the members in our forum.

This one I did using the material from the March Muse kit. It for a sketch challenge at Scrapmuse.

This last one is a photo swap that I did with Cia.
