I had my assigned case file last week, so this is an extra page. Here is how I cracked the case - "Pancakes".

Gosh! it's not the LO that is crooked, it just photographed really so weird.

The papers are a mix of Les Papiers de Pandore, Echo Park, Swedish Maja Design and Pink Paislee.

I really do love pancakes, the Scandinavian kind, but cannot eat them because I am borderline gluten intolerant. A couple of times a year the yearning for the little golden treats gets too much and I gobble down a stack. It of course comes with a price to pay afterwards. It is sooo totally worth it!! my fave is to have fresh berries or raspberry jam with both whipped cream and vanilla icecream on top. Gluttony? naaaw, heavenly bliss! It really should be a lesson learned, but I choose to ignore it.

Looove the effect of the embossed white script stamping on the photo.

 39_Pancakes - 4
A yummo flourish from 2Crafty that I have misted in several different hues of browns and then touched up with Stickles in Turquoise.

 39_Pancakes - 5
More of the Prima script stamp.

Evidence used are leaves and Caran d'Ache crayons (the border around the whole page).

Misted splats and masked/modelling pasted dots.

My next post will be a pre-scheduled one for Tuesday when I'll share my page for The Color Room palette # 130. Here's a peek at the palette from Her Room - whitewashed and pinks!

Haven't forgotten any of you even if I'm MIA from all places at the moment. My life runs on the highest gear and my priorities are elsewhere. I'll be back as soon as I can!

Thank you for taking the time to visit me, I so appreciate it!!

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila


  1. Absolutely beautiful!!! love your work :))

  2. Beautiful page. I just love this combination and cannot wait to play along. Love your layers and mix of papers and :( that you cannot eat pancakes. I think they are one of my all time fave foods too. Next time I am eating some, I will think of you :)

  3. Oh this is such a yummy colour palette!! This layout is delicious!! I adore pancakes too, but never had the Swedish style.....I shall have to look for a recipe :0) I'm with you Eila that white embossing looks fabulous!!

  4. Stunning layout Eila... loving the colors.... loving the flowers .... and the photo is so yummy!!! hugs...xoxo

  5. Underbar =) Färgerna är hur läckra som helst.. Kanske skulle ge mig i kast med dem ;). Dina lager och detaljer är fantastiska och med tuchen av vit färg till så blir det perfekt. Gillar också det stämplade. Pannkakaor är däremot inte min favorit ;)

  6. Hei Eila:)
    Tusen takk for alle de hyggelige kommentarene du legger igjen i bloggen min. Jeg setter så utrolig stor pris på dem alle:):) Det har vært litt lite med layouter fra meg den siste tiden, men føler jeg er litt i gang nå:)

    Denne layouten din er utrolig lekker - og med de herlige fargene dine. Love it:)

  7. Yummie pancakes lovely page cool layers.

  8. Never eaten Scandinavian pancakes. Must put them on my list of things to savor before I die.
    Your page is as delish as the subject :)

  9. Wow this is absolutely beautiful, Eila. Such a pretty colour palette, and your layers & attention to detail is always.

    I have never had (or heard of) Scandinavian pancakes before...but they sure do look super yummy in your photo! What a shame that you are intolerant to them :(....but I like your attitude of getting stuck into them every once in a while & not worrying about the price that you'll pay ...go you :)

  10. I love how you layer the different elements here. So beautiful!

  11. HI.. I love your pancake layout.. I too cannot eat wheat, so I do make them using gluten free flour and lots of syrup!!

  12. I cannot resist the temptation and usually eat too many pancakes ( then I miss my lunch and dinner). gorgeous as always, many eye catching details, yummy layering and great stamping.

  13. How do you nail it every time! That's so gorgeous I could cry! (And almost did, feeling really emotional this evening :D)


  14. Yummmmmmmmm! Love this so much! Oh I so want to do a colour challenge!!! :D

  15. What a beautiful page! Love the flower cluster and the yummie pancakes!

  16. Absolutely beautiful!!!Love this so much!

  17. Beautiful Eila!! Luv the stamping & mixed meddia textures u have used XX

  18. Luckily I am not intolerant to these yummy delicacies. bea and I make them maybe once a week and cover them with delicious whipped cream and fruit or other really sinful things...LOL!
    Love the delicate layers here and the mix of papers. So much fun. And loved seeing a peek of the lovely 'Invitations' line from Pandore.
    Sorry to hear you are so swamped at the moment. I hope things will calm down soon. Actually lots going on here too, both good and bad as always!! Now I too must go to work!....As Schwartzenegger said;...I'll be back! Hugs!!

  19. Lekkert , liker så godt den hvite malingen du har å blmstene dine , embossingen , alle de små lekkre detaljene , kan se å se å aldri bli mett på den

  20. Wow feel terrible that I see I haven't visited in so long. My life is running away with me too - we are having endless alarm problems here & it's driving me crazy - it's one fault after the other keeping us up all night & delaying me for hours in the day with workmen. This layout is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I could write a book of compliments about it. Darn amazing Eila - your talent is phenomenal! I've never seen anything quite like it - the layering and attention to detail are all your own and I do hope you have time to treat us to your beautiful work as and when you can at this difficult time. I love pancakes too but hardly eat them either. Not only are they partly to blame for my enormous behind but they give me terrible heartburn too :)
