TCR # 52 Bygone Happiness - April 2011 - PRIMA IS SPONSOR
Just about made it in time, boy has this week been all about unexpected changes of plans! Plus the palette was extremely hard. It wasn't until I spotted these smouldering hot off the press Swedish papers with the slate blue as dominant colour that I actually got down to putting anything together.
This is FIL's parents on their wedding day in the very early 1920's. The journalling is at the back and the title "Svunnen Lycka" roughly translates into Bygone Happiness. As I haven't distressed the pps much at all, it is not easy to see that there are actually 6 layers + all the elements on my layout.
Anyhow, pps are by Swedish Pion Design, and distressed with 3 different chalks and Gesso. The letter "S" stands for our surname, Sandberg. Lace from my stash and Prima blooms from this week's featured line. The text at the bottom says: "We live as long as we are remembered".
Thanks a mill for looking at my page!! I treasure any comment you may want to leave. 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!
