TCR # 50 Daddy Can - March 2011 - TOOOOOT TOOT! I WAS FEATURED!!
This week marks The Color Room's 50th palette and they have a MASSIVE blog hop! It took me a whole day to go through all the blogs and leave a comment for each and every one. Holy cow what an inspirational hop it is!!
To my utter utter amazement and complete surprise, my layout was featured! You could have knocked me over with a feather. I was soooo over the moon with joy!!
This is my dad, one of my fave photos of him. The silent, rough guy from the Finnish Lapland who loved to potter around in his garage forever dressed in his checkered flannel shirt and blue work overalls. In his pockets he always had a rumpled and stained notebook, a pencil stump, a piece of string, some coins and flakes of tobacco. A hammer or a screwdriver in hand and his toolbox close at hand, rough hands and clothes always full of paint stains and oil splotches.
The journalling tells how he always told me not to cry when something had broken as my daddy could fix everything. Pps are BG Marjolaine. Lots of inspiration from the blog hop though the signs of it might not be big and bold; circles Emma Stafrace, mini-lasso+painted circles+buttons Leeann Pearce, white space and blown splatter from Julie Winks, chunky layers from Lene/Nabon, modelling paste/Gesso/white paint Lydell Quinn and Heidi Kelly, inked white leaves + stitching+distressing+mini cluster at the top a mix from here and there. Thank you beautiful Sylvia Mellander for the wonderful handmade denim bloom! TFL! xx
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!
