Once again a very beautiful palette, but as my stash hunting began it turned out to be a tricky one despite all. The photo is of my MIL (white blouse just about to dig into a piece of cake to the far left) and her brother and two cousins one summer in the very early 1950's. The typical coffee pot (yellow enamel) can be seen in the grass at the bottom of the pic.
Craft/cream patterned cardstock is Swedish designer Maja, as is the cut out postcard serving as matting. Cream thick handmade paper with quite a lot of texture IRL. The purple squares are also cut out from pps by Maja and have the most delish names such as; "cheesecake; flowers on the table; at my place; almond cake with prunes; and the hills of Stockholm". The yellow touches are very discrete; a couple of small roses and just a sliver of yellow lace. Liquid pearls form a circle, white resin embellies from local supplier Panduro. Flowers from Prima. Thank you ever so much for looking!!
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My family is a small one; it's me and my very supportive and patient husband and our 3 cats - Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter. My friends kindly let me scrap their children if I need willing guinea pigs for a layout. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful, London is my favourite city in the whole world. I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life, I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments make me very happy!
