Home sweet home! :)


Nå er sommeren snart over, rekordvarme dager, sol og mye reising frem og tilbake til Lofoten... Og forrige uke var jo opp og ned, Lofoten, Bodø, Tromsø og tilbake siden mamma hadde netthinneløsning på et øye og måtte opereres ~ det gikk kjempefint! Og innimellom fikk jeg jo shoppet litt også ;) Er bare SÅ deilig å endelig være hjemme igjen, og kunne kose meg ordntlig på scrapperommet mitt, og pakke ut nye herligheter... [skal legge ut et bilde av allt stæsjet her!]

Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #46. er sponset av OddBall Art Stamps, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er å bruke 'tekstur'. Utfordringen varer i 14dager, så her er tid nok å være med :)

"Next time you think of beautiful things, don't forget to think about yourself!"

SO good to be back home! After staying in Lofoten almost all summer long, and travelling back and forth, it's sweet to relax and enjoy my scraprooms treasures again :) Got my inks and stampmotifs with me when I'm away, but inspiration to create (and all the stuff to do so with) is in my scraproom ofcourse.. would be difficult to carry all that ~ they joke that I got more supplies than a whole store.. which probably is true! *lol*

This weeks challenge #46. at Creative Fingers (will run for 2 weeks) is sponsored by OddBall Art Stamps, and the Theme is as always Anything Goes, with an optional twist this week of using 'Texture' on your project. You are most welcome to join in! :)
