Watch your f*ing language!!

Ok, the ladies over at the CSD blog, have never ever said they were average or like everyone else. When this challenge ended up in my mailbox I laughed out loud - and got an insane idea!!

The Challenge was:

This "Watch Your Language!" Challenge will change your whole outlook on Paper Crafting, I assure you!
Just how so? Well, I'm going to have you all dig deep down and let her out. We're all women, I want to hear some roaring!

"WTF!" "OMG!" We're all a little guilty and have let it slip, most of the time without even realizing it. I know I have with all these damn computer problems lately. LOL So, what's wrong with putting it down on paper? Nothing! Bad words exist.

I'm going to start you off with a little test to see where you are all at "mind-wise" for this.

I'm thinking of a word that starts with F- and ends in -UCK. There are two obvious answers to this. For those of you who thought of a "Fire-Truck" we have a little bit of preparing to do. But if I'm right, the larger percentage of you thought of a different answer. Now am I right or am I right?

Yes, this may be a little iffy BUT....yes, the BIG BUT....that is what a "challenge" is all about! Are you up for it? If so, challenge yourself and think up something you can create in this Paper Crafting realm and use those naughty words!

Keep in mind that you don't need to over-do it. You can use the word "a$$" or "I3!tch" or the s-word, b-word or any other x-word for that matter without sounding too hostile.

If you have little ones and need to be appropriate for their sake feel free to use "symbols" or the word "beep" in place of the bad word. Use your imagination and go away at it! Most of all....have FUN!


This is what I did....









It is a mini-album, dedicated to the people that I sometimes need to describe in bad ways.... Nasty consultants or other people that just does NOT work with me! ;)

Ok, you didn't think I wouldn't challenge you now.... Time for you too ladies!!

These are the rules (as a addition to the challenge I described above!)



Our Sketch Artist, Anam Stubbington, has created this Exclusive Sketch for us here at C.S.D. However, you DON'T need to use it if you have something else in mind.

You DO need to include at least 1 cuss word (or your substitute).

You DON'T need to create a Scrapbooking Layout, any Paper Creation will do.

You DO need to make sure it's linked up with Mr. Linky with "Watch Your Language!" as your post title so that it's easier for the Lollipop Girls to locate it when voting.

You DON'T need to play specifically for the prize if your here just for fun but keep in mind that the winner will be responsible for their own s&h.

You DO need to make sure your Paper Creation is linked up by the DUE DATE which is: Monday, October 26, 2009 if you are playing for the Blog Candy. Otherwise, feel free to share your creations anytime and we may just add it to the Eye Candy gallery at some point.


The WINNER of this challenge will be voted for by the Lollipop Girls of C.S.D. and announced on the blog on Wednesday, October 28, 2009. The WINNER will win a 309 Piece Collection Kit by Sassafras Lass called "Starry Night" from the Life is Beautiful Line.



The blog candy is sponsored by the LOVELY Jill Coody at Memorable Seasons!! Thanks ever so, and check the goodies out - me wants!!!!


Thats it for now ladies - over to CSD to check the challenges and give some lovin to the Lollipop Girls and their creations!!!

Xmas is coming.....

.....or perhaps not yet, but you HAVE to check THIS out!

*in deep and true awe here* I knew Zarah was goooooood, but this is awesome! And also, take the time and run through the webshop connected to that blog - they have great deals, and good value when it comes to shipping etc!

Even if you are The Grinch you will love this! *promises*

Geek-alert!

Ok, I have never made any secret of the fact that I am a geek. A nerd-ling in disguise, a geek in mind and body. You see, I have a little saying, I don't know where I read it first so I can't really quote it properly, but guys... Geeks will inherit the earth! Yeeha!

Anywho... drifting off the subject again...

You know the amazing blog I talk to you about from time to time..? It is time to get back there and check their new challenge out...

Look here, it has my name written ALL over it, as usual :)

Geek is the new Black, the alpha and omega, the sun on the sky and all the chocolate-covered macadamias in the new Ben&jerry ice cream!
(Drifting again, I went to B&J icecream bar in Stockholm yesterday - but that is a whole other story!!!)


Ok so the challenge.... here are the rules:

-The base of your Paper Creation should be BLACK. It doesn't have to be all black or even plain black, but black. With that said, you don't have to create a layout. It can be any kind of Paper Creation (a layout, a card, a mini album, an altered item, etc.).
-The title/journaling on your Paper Creation (should you choose to add one) should be WHITE.
-You must include a PLAID, CHECKERED or ARGYLE PRINT and
-You must include an APPLE. It doesn't matter how many.

Already created a Paper Creation that fits into these rules? Awesome! Go ahead and enter it into the Challenge! They don't need to be new.

Due Date: Midnight (est) Monday, October 10, 2009

Wanna se my take on it?


And have you seen the prize?? The lovely ladies over at E.A.D has donated the price!!! It is an awesome kit of vinyl rubon things!! Well drool-worthy!

So are you really still here....? Off to the scrapping table with you....!!

A Photoshop tribute....

....to an AMAZING PS-editor!

This blog notice is going to be just a boasting about my lovely friend who has helped me with tons of pictures!

Quite a few of you have asked me about my photos on my layouts and how I have made them to look that great. Newflash darlings, I am a "PS illiterate" and don't know anything but how to adjust levels and resize. On a good day I might even be able to make a photo black and white, but that is really pushing it.

That is when I call in
the Heavy Artillery... She is an amazingly talented PS editor, and I am in awe about how great she is. At live scrap events I praise her ability to make average looking photos into masterpieces! Are you curious yet...?


It is of course
the darling Zarah - she is the woman I can thank for all these amazing pictures, and also a bit of a rescuing angel when it came to wedding pictures taken by my parent-in-laws!


If you look closer on all my layouts, you can see the intricate details on the photos and the extra frames and things. I am SO GRATEFUL Zarah helps me with this, and have the patience to do so even when she has tons to do herself!

Thank you darling - you are the best!

Shoes can be....

....used in a number of different ways. This is Stina's sons way of using his shoes..... Apparently these shoes now stinks from being soaked in the water! J on the other hand was dead chuffed about his smart idea!


Material list:

Red and white cs from Bazzill
Patterned paper from October Afternoon
Journaling label from October Afternoon
Thickers "Subway" from American Crafts
My own handwriting

Isn't he soooo cute? :)

Stay tuned for more scrapping things - I'm on my way to Tettiz for another few days of sister-company, and if I am a good girl during the days and write, I will get to scrap like crazy during the evenings :)

Tataaaaa!

A real darling...

...and her son is on this next layout.
My darling friend Stina let me scrap a few of her pictures during our scrapping weekend in Kolbäck. I don't know what it is, but I usually enjoy scrapping another person's photos sometimes - probably because they are different, and not the same old same old that I scrap myself...

Anywho... this layout is the result of a photo from Stina, and a sketch from Wildärtan. It was a challenge that Karlssons Scrapperi was hosting during the crop.


Material list:

White and black cardstock from Bazzill
Patterned paper from October Afternoon
Flowers ad leaves from Petaloo and Prima
Buttons from the never-ending-button-bag
Black Scrappers Floss
Bling from KARS (can be found in Stampeezee's webstore!)
Black blingswirl from The Nook monthly kit

Thats it for now my darlings!
Tata!!

My darling little rascal.... ;)

For those of you who don't know it... Tettiz's daughter Kajsa is my "niece" (Well, it is perfectly logical seeing Tettiz is my "sister"!)! She is a little sunshine, with lots of personality and adorability (new word - live with it...).

When I was in Kolbäck for the scrapping crop last weekend I got a photo of Kajsa to scrap. Me and Tettiz had both got a bit stuck and we needed to get going. There is nothing that gets the two of us going as a 30-minute challenge. You get 30 minutes to do a layout, which means there is not much time to sit and think. Just do it, like they say at Nike...

The result is shown below and I am pretty pleased :D

The text says:
"You are aunties beloved rascal! This picture is taken in April 2009 when you were given rice to eat. Well, most of the rice got stuck to you face and hair, but anyway....!"
Then the title is a word-game that is not easy to translate or explain - you just have to take my word for it when I say I was being funny :D


Material list:
  • CS from Bazzill (white and black)
  • Patterned paper from Basic Grey "Indian Summer"
  • Flower and bling from Prima and Kaiser Craft
  • Thickers from American craft (Daiquiri and Patchwork)
  • Round alphabet stickers from Jenni Bowlin
  • My own handwriting and Fluid Chalk (Chestnut roan)

The Maid and Matron of Honour....

At our wedding Tettiz thought it was a bit silly to be called a "maid" seeing she is married and have a daughter. Adam's mother then told her, that it is called a matron of honour if that is the case! We thought this was rather funny, and it has become a bit of an in-joke with us after that!

I haven't really been scrapping a lot of the wedding pictures yet, mainly because I am scared I will scrap them and then get very disappointed with it, seeing wedding pictures are so precious and need a certain "feeling" to it. Well, I have put that fear aside now, and started scrapping them. It is so much fun, and brings out so many memories!

This is one of my favourite pictures of my sister and Tettiz as they are walking into the church with me and my dad!


This is made after a sketch of AlienBling - Thanks hun for the inspiration!!

Material list:
(Lots of it from Scrapbook Nook monthly kit!)

Cardstock (White & cream) from Bazzill
Patterned paper from Pink Paislee
Flowers, swirl, pearls, and centre piece (in one flower) from Prima Marketing
Bling from Kaiser Craft
Black chipboard alpha from Pink Paislee
Black and white mini alphabet stickers from Making Memories
My own handwriting

Tata for now lovvies!

More than one year ago....

....we were standing in the church, promising each other to be forever together. I can still remeber the whole ting, the song sung by my cousins, how you looked and how I felt! We had a day we will remeber forever, and we see that as a beginning of our life together!

I was thinking about how quickly this year has passed, when I was making this layout! It is already more than a year ago!! Amazing, and insane!! I made this when I was away last weekend, and I used mainly the Scrapbook Nook Kit again - the colours are warm and suitable for these pictures! I like!


Material list:
Cardstock Bazzill
Patterned paper from Pink Paislee
Pearl swirl and pearls from Prima Marketing
My own hand writing
Thickers from American Crafts (Mirror Mirror)
Rubons from Pink Paislee
See-through Sticker from Pink Paislee
Circle Mini alphabet stickers from Jenni Bowlin

I still have to pinch myself, that I got HIM. My darling husband, who loves me unconditionally, and that is ok with me being all over the place, travelling around to different scrapping conventions and that has a mind that is all over the place. I do love him, more than anything else! A true blessing!!!

Tata for now dolls!

Missing.....

....my husband!


Right now I'm torn. I do enjoy being in Sweden, being close to friends and family and being able to enjoy the Swedish nature and things again. But I don't feel completely happy, when I can't share it with the one person that makes me whole. There is so many things I miss from England, apart from "Him indoors".... My kitty cats, my bed, Starbucks, my desk and all things I take for granted when I am there. I am trying to think about what a great experience this is for me, I'm learning so much in the hospital and the working environment is so much better than in England, but still, no Husband..


Well at least countdown is initiated... In less than two weeks I will be standing close to the bridge between Sweden and Denmark, waiting for The Knight on his White Horse... or more like pearl gray Jag, but nevermind ;)

Miss you bunsy, sooo much!

Sorry for the ranting and sulky blog post, but I just needed to get it off my chest I think!
Tataaa for now!!

Autumn is here...

I got my last Scrapbook Nook Kit and I love it - the colours are amazing, and I have already made a few things with it!

This is a good-to-have-card that I can take if I need to send someone a card for some reason! I love the colours here too, and I have to say that the Ladies over at the Nook know their stuff!


Material List:

Cardstock: Bazzill normal, and swiss dotted brown cardstock
Patterend Paper from Pink Paislee
Rectangle with "Autumn Wishes" from Pink Paislee
Flowers and Leaves from Prima Marketing

Thanks for looking everyone - I really do apprechiate you coming over and checking my site out!

Tata for now!

I made this layout when I was visiting said Malin, and I really liked how it turned out!

I have been...

....very busy, and that is the reason to why this blog gets sadly forgotten inbetween updates!

But on the bright side... I have also been very busy scrapping and cardmaking!!

First I went to Tettiz for a long weekend of girly fun! Her Husband was away and we were bumming around, scrapping, watching TV, eating jummy food and playing with Tettiz daughter Kajsa! (My "niece")

During my time in Stockholm I made tons of things, and I will show you a bit at the time :D

The weekend after that, which is the weekend that just passed, I went to Lillpiga and visited her in her new house A.K.A castle! We had a really nice time, and on saturday we met up with 20 other scrapping crazy ladies and had a crop over 12 hours. I was insanely productive there as well. However, I created layouts with other people's photos so I didn't get so many things with me home, seeing I gave the layout to the owner of the picture! (Hopefully I will get some pictures anyway so that I can show you!)

But now, lets start with a layout I did last weekend :) It was a challenge from Tettiz and it was to create something using BLACK, WHITE and PINK only! Here is my layout:



Material list:
Cardstock: Bazzill Black and White
Pink diecut-paper from Basic Grey (Lemonade series)
Buttons and Ribbon form a monthly kit from Paper Poisies
Mini alfabet stickers from Making Memories
White Thickers (Daiquiri)
Flower (mini roses and bigger flowers) from Prima Marketing


That was it for now - you just have to stay tuned for more jummyness in the blog! I promise you I will give my blog some more loving from now on!

Tata!!

Pheeew

Ok, so I have been home in Sweden for a week now and I am absolutely exhausted!

First it was an interesting trip home, seeing I ended up in the check-in-desk from Hell. I had 2 kilograms too much in my bag and my handluggage was on the limit to what was allowed. The snooty lady told me I HAD to unpack some things because it was too heavy. Well ok, then but I have never ever experienced that they have argued over 2 kilograms before... Never mind. Luckily Adam was with me so that he could take some stuff out of the bag and then into a box and ship it over with the post instead. BUT the response when I went back to the checkin was priceless...
"Well I hope you haven't put the things in you hand luggage now, because it was almost too heavy as well. Do I need to weigh your hand luggage again....?"
I almost had a hizzy fit on the spot... Luckily Adam calmed me down and bought me a Latte from Starbucks at the airport.

I arrived in Sweden on the sunday, and was picked up at the airport by my mother. We drove home, had some dinner and aimed to get an early night. I was up a bit too late, but finally got to bed and had a decent nights sleep!

On monday morning I reported to the administrative person at the Medicine ward at the hospital. She had sorted a lot of things out for me and I got logins for the computers, a bleeper and some other important papers. After that it was the morning meeting at 8.00 and then off to the ward to start working. The first day was rather busy and I had tons to learn and take in. Exhausted in the evening and crashed rather early.

Tuesday to friday went by extremly quickly. Every day I got more and more confident and by the end of the week I was having my own rounds, doing all the examinations, talking to the patient, planning management etc. I even got to have my own discharge talk with a patient and her relatives! It feels really good to be trusted and not having to ALWAYS run to your supervisor to ask for permission. Of course I wouldn't do anything I wasn't allowed, but you catch my drift!

I was absolutely shattered when the weekend arrived and I fell asleep before ten on friday. I didn't get up until 11 on satudray and went down shopping for clothes around lunchtime on saturday. In the evening I went to my dad and had crayfish and jummy omelette and then watched a movie! Really nice, and very tired when I got home...

Today I slept til 11.30 (!?!?!?! Wtf....) and after that I have been busy doing tons of things. I took mom for a walk, went and did the weekly shopping, cleaned the car, including vacuming it inside, and then I defrosted mom's freezer. Oh my god that was well needed. It hadn't been done in ages and I had to throw quite a bit away seeing it was mainly dried out and gone so to speak. During that I also prepared some snacks bags for the week, with nuts, dried fruit and pumpkin seeds. Good to keep with you when you get hungry in between meals. Better than eating jummy swedish chocolate, that's for sure!

Tonight I will try to get an earlyish night, but have some studying to do as well. I hope mom will make some dinner so that I can focus on my studying. Need to make a bit of a plan for the week as well. I was hoping I would be able to go and get some exercise done, but not sure where at the minute. I dont't think I want to pay for 2 months at the nice gym, seeing I will not be using it that much. I might check out Friskis&Svettis here in town and go to that. Usually very good and not too expensive!

Ok, I have to get going now, otherwise I will not get done, I know me ;) Tata for now!! :)

onsdag 2 september 2009

I had to strip....

Ok, it is not any where NEAR as dirty as you thought *smiles*

One of our challenges for CandyShoppeDesigns was to "Strip". The instructions were to strip something and use on a layout. After a bit of soul searching and thinking I decided to strip my chocolate box, inside and out, and use as strips on my layout! The result is seen below but it doesn't end there....



Over at our favourite blog the Striptease 101 Challenge has started! Head over and check it out and join as well.

The more strip-ing the merrier...? :D

OH.....MY......GODNESS....ME!!!!!

I have been in absolute shock for a few weeks and now I can FINALLY tell you guys!!

I sent a Design Team application to this amazing lady, called Lynnette, a few weeks ago. Zarah sent me a link to this really nice blog and told me that I should apply there, because it seemed to be something I would like, and was she right or WHAT?

Lynnette, who is the owner of the blog, mailed me and told me I was elected to be on the design team as a Lollipop Girl and I have been walking around dieing to tell you about this ever since!!

The blog is now launched and there are tons of challenges, and goodies and giveaways and...and.....and.... a whole lot of talent! The other Lollipop Girls are amazing artists and I am soooooo happy I made the team!! If you don't recognize me, I can be found as Pink Cocoa/Coffee bean (the Judges are still out on the final name ;) )



So, are you actually still here???? Aren't you supposed to surf to the site to check all the good stuff out?? :) And hey, do what I did - swtart following the blog - then You won't miss a thing!

For all of you that want a challenge!!

On the Nook Forum there was a thread started by Zarischka, about perhaps having a little crop/challenge/sketch this weekend. She is very lucky though, she is having scrapbookingcompany ALL weekend from Knin and Hattifnatt!! I am guessing her crafts room will be VERY well used!!

So this is my challenge to you - I have made a sketch (seen below) and I want you to scrap, make a card or alter or a canvas from that. The only other rule is that you need to use more than THREE patterned papers!



The challenge will close on Monday the 20th of July at 9.00 GMT.

When you have finished you post a comment to this post, and link to your created masterpiece!

I will give away a little prize to someone that I will randomly generate from your comments number!

So, are you still here?? Off you go to the scrapping table!!

Jag vet att jag suuuuuuuger.....

Det jag däremot har gjort i helgen är att jag pysslat en del med Tettiz som är här och hälsar på. I äkta DrAnnika-och-Tettiz-anda har jag även rensat lite bland mina pysselsaker. Det borde vara förbjudet att vara en sådan hamster som jag är!!!

Jag har därför satt igång att rensa bland mina QK alfabet. Jag har ALLDELES för många som ligger och samlar damm då jag, liksom många andra pysslare, ser charmen med de nya sakerna och vill ha dem istället!

Men kolla in detta!



Pyssloteket är helt galna!
Det ger bort ett bamsigt pysselpaket till någon som DU kan vara med och välja! Gå in på denna länk och nominera!

Jättemysigt initiativ och MERA SÅDANT!! Vi måste ta hand om varandra och kom ihåg vad Stefan Einhorn menade i sin bok "Konsten att vara snäll"... Om vi alltid strävar efter att vara snälla mot varandra, blir kontentan att andra även är snälla tillbaka!
