Hot, hot, hot for a Stockholmian! the mercury showed +30C in our kitchen window and +27C indoors. The cats lie flat on the floor and the floor fans run around the clock. As we haven't got the safety net installed yet, we cannot keep the balcony door open because of the cats. The horrifying incident with Elsa falling off our 4th-floor balcony last autumn is brandished in my memory and the fur babies are not allowed out there until the net is safely in place.
YAY for Friday! I'm leaving for a business trip on Sunday and won't be back home till late on Wednesday night, which means I'm going to be even more far behind with visits and commenting. Really so sorry for that.
Today I've got a TCR page and a page for the Prima May BAP to share with you.
First the news on the two new TCR DT members: fabulous NIC HOWARD and absolutely awesome CZEKOCZYNA from Poland! A super welcome to both ladies!
There is still time to send in your applications for the DT call, send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 June!
And now to the #112 TCR palette and wonderful inspo sketch by Lydell;
This is my take "Thankful";
The colourful lady in the photo is my scrappy friend Rebekah from Florida and her hunk on their wedding day, St Patrick's 2012. They had a beach wedding and I just LOVE the light in the photo and the tender look on Bekah's face when looking at her newly wed husband.
I have only used one layer of paper this time, 7Dots collection Wonderland, but I have misted extra around the borders and also inked in TH Black Soot to make the lace pattern come out better. Modelling paste/masking under the photo and matting.
At the moment I am absolutely crazy about acrylic paint in gold and have it on just about everything. The chippie grass was inked in TH Old Paper + Vintage Photo + Shabby Shutters before the gold was applied.
And then my Prima May BAP based on the En Francais collection. I called it "La Vie En Rose" to give it a whiff of Paris;
Just love that soooo typically French window!
Had myself some great fun dressing the 2 chippie flourishes! I say TA Glimmer Glam in Chandelier brings out the best in any colour! amazing stuff.
No French cuisine would be complèt without some ail!
Et voilà on et arrivé au fin!
Thank you for not thinking I'm a lazy bugger never bothering to come for a visit. You are all in my heart and on top of my list each weekend, but lately my time has not been entirely mine to own.
I so incredibly appreciate your visits and oh so kind comments!!
Have a wonderful wonderful weekend all of you! On Saturday, 26 May at 2 p.m. Swedish time I am thinking of my scrappy friend Sylvia Mellander and toasting to her and her newly wed husband Ulf. Wishing you a church full of sobbing family and friends and a helluva party afterwards!
