A photo of my best friend, taken in the North Dakota Badlands when we took a little roadtrip in May 1991 while we were still in college. We drove from Fargo ND to Theodore Roosevelt National Park - and it was so much fun. Driving through North Dakota was the first time in my life I had seen so much flat land LOL It was beautiful, but coming from mountainous Iceland, I just hadn't experienced before, standing on the road and not seeing even a hill (or a bump in the road LOL) in any direction :)
My daughters on their way to a yearly costume party at their school and kindergarten last March. They had long decided that they were going to go as Cleopatra and a witch. At the last minute, my younger daughter wanted to go as Justin Bieber but settled on me writing his name on her forhead LOL So she went as the Justin Bieber witch :)
...for the Christmas card - or at least the attempt at one LOL Trying to get all kids to act nice, skip the funny faces, smile - or just plain look at the camera all at the same time, is next to impossible :)
I used Julia Makotinsky's Winterful ~ available at Scrapbook Graphics.
A referral photo of my older daughter, taken in December 2003 when she was one year old. The other photo was taken on December 2, two days before her 9th birthday :)
I used a fantastic collab from Studio Basic and Dúnia Designs, called Everyday Project Bundle ~ it's amazing and perfect for any P365 or Project Life in 2012. Everything can be bought as a bundle - or as individual element/paper packs. The Everyday Project Bundle is available at Digiscrappers Brasil and MScraps.
My younger daughter after a huge blow-out. She was on her way to the Kindergarten Christmas Party, all dressed up in her best, when the Christmas stress got the better of her and she lost control of her temper LOL Afterwards, she still wanted me to take her picture in her best outfit :)
I used Dawn Inskip's AMAZING new Peace Collection available at Scrapbook Graphics. The template I used is by Little Green Frog.
We made chocolate chip cookies the other day and the girls got some milk and cookies before bedtime. Just to make Santa jealous :)
I used Dawn Inskip's fab new Festivity stuff at Scrapbook Graphics...and some of Dawn's equally fabulous, slightly older stuff. There is so much stuff that I'm just linking the layout to the gallery where you can read the creditlist - but everything is available at Scrapbook Graphics -
My husband is away for days at a time and the kids miss him a lot. I thought it would make the wait easier if we made a calendar to count down the days until he got home again. This is my younger daughter making her "daddy calendar" - which has definitely made the wait easier on her :)
I did this for the December Homemade Challenge at Catscrap. I used a lot of Catscrap stuff on there - and the layout is linked for full credit :)
My girls and I enjoyed two nights of cutting out these fabulous paper dolls, created by Berna Datema at Scrapbook Graphics. They are called Ma'am's Dolls Cutouts and the pack comes with 4 dolls and sheets and sheets of fun and funky clothes, shoes, jewellery - everything!
We have 13 rather mischievous Christmas Lads in Iceland - each one comes down from their home in the mountains with a little treat for the kids. First one comes on December 12 and the last one on December 24.
First Sunday of Advent and the lights on the Christmas trees were lit in our town today. We went - of course - and took my younger daughter's friend with. They met the first Santas of the season and were really excited :)
