Good morning peeps!
Stockholm has woken up to a cloudy Wednesday. Yesterday the sun suddenly disappeared and we had rain and hail coming down in sheets! It's been a miserable summer so far in most parts of our country, harvests are rotting away and our legs have none of the longed-for summer tan. No wonder all the travel agencies have sold out on all the trips to southern Europe!
Have to bring out some imaginative sun and fun in my scrappy nook instead!
CSI case file # 28 was released last Friday. It being the National Ice Cream Month in the US, we continue with the theme. Here's the case file for you;
Beautiful printable coordinates created by our Michele Singh to match;
Rather old papers from Theresa Collins.
My husband is an incurable hoarder and has a BIG box with his stash of old toys from his childhood. His absolute faves are his robots. Not the ones in the photo, they only serve as a visual reminder of the little boy that is hiding inside my man and who comes out when anything remotely technical pops up anywhere.
Here the papers used are from Echo Park.
Even if the photos are of Miss T, the daughter of my DH's youngest cousin, they actually represent me.
I absolutely LOVE roller coasters and any kind of swirling, rolling, swinging attractions found in an amusement park. It's me and the kids riding, DH stands at the entrance and holds my handbag. I can do it over and over again without getting woozy or feeling sick.
This page is all about how silly girls of a certain age can be about
anything. No adult understands what makes them tick or what sends them
off into hysterical giggles. Miss T's mother told me how she and her bestie found a visit to the Museum of Natural Science mighty amusing,
especially when seeing eeky stuff in glass jars.
The papers used on this page are G45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe which have
really quirky and odd details. Just like the eeky stuff in the museum,
catching the curiosity of tweenies.
Ahhh satisfaction achieved - flowers!
Brads are from BG Curio.
Washed everything with diluted cream acrylic paint and a sponge to tone down the rather sharp amber hue.
My stepdaughter Emelie, who works as a camera man for Swedish television, has some time off today from the production she's currently working on. Wants to spend her precious time off with her old nana (MIL) and us, isn't that so sweet of her. As nana didn't get to meet her only grandchild on her birthday last weekend, we're splashing out on another lunch followed by coffee and cake of course. Taking them to a really fabulous café in town, very quirky eclectic furnishing and THE yummiest pastry! no scrunching on the whipped cream, chocolate or fillings ...
Hope the sun is shining on you wherever you may be, have a wonderful rest of the week! Thank you for all your wonderful comment, really really appreciate you taking the time to come for a visit! Mwah!
Cheers! xoxo Eila
