CSI # 20 No Worries

Running so late with everything this week, work took off almost the sec I came to the office on Monday and hasn't slowed down since. Things are starting to gear up for Midsummer, which marks the start of the Swedish summer vacation/hols period.

This post will be short and sweet, only photos and the journalling.

First the #20 case file:

and the wonderful printable coordinates created by our very own Michele Sing

Here is my take, I've called it "No worries - Be Happy"

All papers except the yellow/white gingham matting that is K&Co, are from Jolee's Design's new scrummy collection called French General.

Isn't the little creepy crawley ever so beautiful! I found the photo on a Finnish gardening site.

And when you've turned over, you find this communiqué from the little fellow, click on the photo and it'll come up bigger.

Tomorrow is our 12th wedding anniversary and the pink champagne is already in the fridge. Not much else than drinking the bubblies and having a scrummy dinner at home happening as far as I know, which is an absolutely perfect ending to a working day.

With wedding bells in mind, I would like to start the count-down to the nuptials of my team mate Sylvia Mellander over at CSI. She will tie the knot with her Ulf on Saturday, 26 May. As for all brides-to-be, I know these last few days leading up to W day are nerve wrecking for her. Wishing you all the happiness in the world guys!!

And to you lovely peeps, have a fab end to the week!

Cheers! xoxox Eila
