I love pink

I created this layout for a DT search over at Create my keepsake. I didn't make it to the next round but it was fun to try out!

Journaling says: I love the colour of pink! Whenever I go shopping for clothes or scrapbook stuff I always stop at the pink section. My eyes catches the pink stuff right away.

When I got married my sister and my parents had planned a big surprise for us. They had contacted a friend theirs who has old cars so we were picked up by this beautiful pink car!

Materials used CS Artic frog, PP Danyeela patterned paper, Sassa Fras lass, My minds eye, Creative imaginations, Journal tag Making memories, Brads Craft Market and ? ?. Hearts Craft market, Ribbon Value Craft, Alpha ?, Rubon Heidi Grace.

Ravenea's Rockin' Challenge NKOTB

This challenge by SIStv was all about music and how it has affected you.

Hehehee NKOTB has touched my soul :). When I was young I was a HUGE NKOTB fan. My room was full of posters and I listened to them 24/7. Me and my best friend danced and sang to their music every day and we also have a tape (both video and cassette) where we sing and dance :). Whenever I hear a NKOTB song I think back on my happy childhood and all the fun we had. Now I listen to my old mixed tapes when I do spring and winter cleaning :) makes even cleaning fun *LOL*

Materials used: Pink Martini, Scenic route, Bazzill, Love Elsie

I've picked these 5 techniques:
*Doodling under the title and over the scalloped paper.
* framing the photo
* hybrid printed out the hot tag on white paper

Lost in this moment (STM challenge)

I really loved this weeks challenge at STM and I really really wanted to do a wedding photo. As I already told you I don't have my wedding photos here right now. I'll get them end of June when we go back to visit Hamburg. I do have some photos over at an old online photo album but the size of the photos are so small the quality gets bad when you try to print them. I took this photo from that album because it's my favorite photo of all time. I even have a bigger version of it framed on my wall but of course that frame is also still in Hamburg . I have been playing around with the photo in photoshop to minimize the bad quality. I made it a bit greenish to go with the color combo that I've chosen. It's hard to see that one this photo.

I've chosen to make a very bright layout and used not so traditional wedding colors. The journaling part is taken from the lyrics. In real life it's even brighter than this photo shows.

Materials used: CS Bazzill, PP Rhonna Farrer, Catter box, Danyeela patterned paper, Grungeboard, American crafts, Bo Bunny, Creative imaginations.

Photos from Öckerö

This weekend has been amazing! We are having such a great weather. Today we have over 30 degrees Celsius which is very warm for June here in Sweden. Yesterday we spent the whole day on the island Öckerö. It's only about 20-30 minutes car drive from here and then you take a ferry over to the island. Here some photos I took yesterday. The two photos with the boats are taken a few weeks ago when we also were on Öckerö.
