Sneak peak Closet

I'm taking a small break from scrapbooking today and starting to pimp my closet. It's going to be red so I'm only done the "pre painting". I have a small problem. The closet has 4 ugly keyhole locks in a really ugly color and I'm not quite sure what to do with them. I can't take them out. What do you think should I paint them red too? Any ideas are welcome!

Right now the color of the locks are "goldish". It still needs one more coat of white and after that I hope it needs only 2 coats of red color. Photo quality is not that good as the light is very bad. I haven't done anything to the locks yet. They are covered with scotch.

Love boat

When I was younger we used to go a lot on cruises between Sweden and Finland. We mostly went on 24 hour cruises as the 36 hour cruises were a bit tooo much partying *LOL* You go on board at 6-7 in the evening and start partying and then you party the whole night through. If you are fit for fight you can go off the boat a few hours in Finland but you have to be back in time when the boat leaves back to Sweden. I have called this LO for Love boat as usually there are a lot of flirting going on one these cruises :)

This photo is taken 1998

Happy Birthday Tanja!!!!

Today is Tanjas birthday. I hope you have a wonderful day today with full of Joy. I did a little Birthday LO to you.


I got tagged by Mirija and it's all about music so here it goes..

1. Wie heißt Dein momentanes Lieblingslied und von wem ist es?
What's my favorite song at the moment.

Hmm I have many favorite songs at the moment so it's a difficult question. But a really nice song that I like is by Bon Jovi. Til we ain't strangers anymore.

But I also like Surrender by Billy Talent.

2. Von welchem Lied kannst du den Text in und auswendig und wieso?
To which song do you know the text by heart and why?

Ooh that's a lot of songs :). But well one for sure is From this moment by Shania Twain because it was our first dance as husband and wife :).

But as I am a HUGE The Rasmus Fan I must confess I do know almost all their text by heart ;)

3. Welche CD hast Du Dir zuletzt gekauft?
What CD did you buy most recently?

Hmm that would be Billy Talent II.

Who do I tag... well let's see

Workshop, sneak peak and LO

First week of Dani's 6 week workshop is done and it has been soo much fun doing this album. Me and Tommie went to Djerba in 2004. I decided to put as much of my photos as I can in this album so that I have them all in one place.

Here is my take on the Make and Take workshop.

Here is a little sneak peak :)

And a LO about my curly hair that I had when I was young.

Journaling: When I was young it was really hip to have curly hair. As my hair was straight by nature I always went to the hairdresser to get it permed. These photos are taken with many years apart so I really liked it that way. Now I would never wear my hair like that and I am very happy that it isn't hip anymore.

Karen Russell Workshop

I have finally scanned my Layouts from the Karen Russell workshop.

I've also added a few more photos to my last post. If you want to see more photos just le me know and I'll send you an invite to my photoalbum ;)

Photos from our vacation

Here are finally some photos documenting our vacation.
Our first vacation by car. Will the car make it all the way?

This photo shows how the weather has been almost all the time. We had maybe 4-5 sunny days.

Not necessarily a good photo but if you click on it and look closer you see it says Scandinavian Park. It's a border shop right before you cross the line from Germany to Denmark. Of course we had to go inside and buy some of my favorite swedish candy.

A romantic dinner in the car before we drive to the ferry taking us from Fredrikshavn to Göteborg.

On the ferry.

Photos from my hometown. Well there's not much else to show ;). It's so small you can't even call it a town.

At our summer house. Cutting the lawn, playing badminton and looking at cute frogs.

In Sundsvall visiting Tommies mother. We actually had a few sunny days there so we could go out with the boat.

I took a lot of photos of flowers just playing around a bit and trying to learn how to set up the camera for different kind of photos. Here is one of my favorite shots.
