Room No44

My friend and I went on a little road trip in Spain way back in 1993 :) Among other things we went to the city of Cuenca, famous for it's hanging houses. We stayed at an old monestary which had been converted into a hotel in 1983. When we were there it still had a lot of character and we loved our stay there, the thich stone walls, heavy wooden doors - and the deep dents in the stairs from centuries of use :)I did this for Studio Gypsy's special playday at Scrapbook Graphics. Lisa is sadly retiring from designing - and her whole store is 60% off. Most everything is by Studio Gypsy, except the lace which is from a couple of kits from Christina Renee. The layout is linked for a full credit list.

Self Portrait

Lovisa Lin took this self portrait of herself and her little sister the other day. I found it when I uploaded the photos from her camera to my computer - and I found it totally funny :) Lovisa has her "photo-model-pout" face, while Matthildur has her ecstatic "I can't believe she is holding me and including me in her activities" face LOL
I used Thaty Borges' fabulous new collection of goodies, My Sweet Garden Collection and Studio Basic's amazing new templates Just Another One IV.


Matthildur Inga went to a birthday party next door last weekend. She went there dressed in her best clothes and wearing her best shoes. On her way home, she ran so fast that the heel on her left shoe tore off the skin on the inside of her right leg, leaving lots of bleeding cuts, some deep. But she just shook her head, and proudly wore her army of band-aids around the house :)I used Biograffiti's fab new kit, Crush, and the alphas are from Molly's Happy Camper kit (recolored) ~ available at OScraps. The stitches are by Anna Aspnes.

Bad Day

Lovisa Lin one day back in September, when she didn't want to go on a walk with the rest of us, but she didn't want to stay home either, didn't know what she wanted really, so she kept saying "I don't want to go - WAIT, wait for me, don't go ahead of me". She is really at an age when some days, the whole world and her grandma is against her LOL Normally she is her sweet smiling self - but then there are these days :)
I used Dawn Inskip's wonderful new collection of goodies at Scrapbook Graphics. It's called Sticks & Stones, and even though it's a beautiful and versatile general kit - it's FANTASTIC to record the not-so-smiley moments in your life.
I also used a template from the Grow With Love Kid's Edition by Crystal Livesay & Sara Gleason.

According to Lovisa Lin, cool shoes are a necessity in life - and apparently, my shoes are categorized as cool in her book LOL She loves to wear them, claims they fit her perfectly, and amazingly enough doesn't fall down while walking around on them :)I did this for the Studio Collectives Playday at Scrapbook Graphics - all the collectives are 40% off this week!! I used the Studio Girls' Impression of Simplicity and the alpha is from Impression of Enchantment.
