Super Simple Scrapbooking – Challenge 13

Use wordstrips…

I often mess up when I try that approach because I find it hard to get the words in center when I cut. Today I just happened to have a small strip of cardstock in front of me so I used my handwriting. So much easier :)


He got a new bike but keeping up with the big kids is not easy.

Super Simple Scrapbooking – Challenge 12

Super Simple Scrapooking Challenge 12 -


Wish I could do that but I don`t have an eye for color so I have to settle for almost monochromatic .

I am all done With the photos from 2012 so I am back in 2011. I was not aware  of how many photos I had from 2011:) This will be a busy week if I intend to finish before Christmas:)


Stacy and Darci`s Simple Scrapbooking class is inspiring so I made a few pages yesterday after finishing the day`s Challenge. Funny – but those are also “almost monochromatic”.

She cleaned the windows with hair balsam and the mirrors with her mother`s perfume. Funny girl…


He was fishing and got his father on the hook…


Grandpa says he is the best because he plays with his train and  he is tidying up when he is done…


He was late to the party but soda pop is still the best…


Happy reunion…


Grandma should seek cover when the boys are playing with helicopter in the living room…

Very tired and very young scrapbookers ready to surprise their mother with one more layout…

Super Simple Scrapbooking – challenge 11

So fun to wake up this rainy monday morning and open challenge number 11 – use many photos, a grid and an extra page…



I am working with photos from 2011. Still in February:) so I had to jump to December to find photos I could cut down to a size I could use for a grid.

I am sure I covered this event in my December Daily album 2011 but a good thing can be documented more than once.

This moment was so much fun. The kids coming home late December 23 finding all the boxes with Christmas stash on the floor.

The little one had never done this before and he was ecstatic. Running back and forth with Santa figures and piling them all up just like he wanted them. All in one place:)




Turning the 6 x 12 page for the rest of the photos…


No more journaling needed:)

Scenes from a weekend

Last weekend…

Baby Anton was shopping with his parents when he saw someone familiar. Familiar from TV. His parents thought it would be cool to get a photo of the two of them. They did not have to sweet talk the baby because he reached out to the man like he known him forever…


Moments like this have to be documented…


This weekend grandma had music in her kitchen…


…all kinds of music…


His mother calls him “Askeladden” ( like the boy in the fairy tale that grabs everything he finds on his way because he might need it)…


His mother`s journaling:

Anton also goes under the name of Ash Lad! Jogging along with the Brio chart.  But occasionally he encounters obstacles in the form of toys and other useful things. These are picked up, studied and put into the cart, and then transported around.
Yesterday’s catch: favorite book “Peder and tractorlittle sheep baa, a train, a car, a pacifier (important to have a spare), a biscuit and some raisins! 😉
So with toys, snacks and pacifier safe, Anton Torvald Askeladd is ready for new adventures.

This one seems to have had an intense weekend…


I almost said ouch but he just look smug…


Either he won the fight or he scored the goal :)
