Mini Me

Hello dear friends near and far!

Aren't you just the sweetest ever, thank you so much for all the well wishes for speedy recovery that you're sending me! Really wish I could say this nasty flu has gone away, but it hasn't. Drinking so much fluids that it's almost spouting from my ears! :)

Late, late again with my posting the # 127 The Color Room that I've called Mini Me.

Still loving to create with paper layers and a minimal amount of mixed media, but I know that'll change any time when I have a sudden urge to do something more arty. These papers are from one of Norwegian Tilda's recently released Christmas collections. The dotted kraft envelope is Melissa Frances.

Have a question for you: does anyone have a tip on where to find this Prima Bretton vine?! it seems to be sold out everywhere.

My mother's handwriting at the back of the photo says I was 4 years old at the time.

I wore my long and very blond hair in a pony tail until I was in my mid 20's when I had it cut off entirely. Been regretting it since, would so have loved to wear it in an elegant chignon at the nape of my neck now. Well, good thing is my current hairdo doesn't take long to fix in the morning.

Before I say bye for now, I'll give you a peek of the second palette of the September OUAS and CSI joint challenge to be released on Friday American eastern standard time/Saturday morning Australian eastern standard time.

It is going to be every bit as stunning as the first one was! Stay tuned for some serious gorgeousness!

Thank you darlings for popping by! I will be visiting you as soon as I can, that's a promise.

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila

    P/s: Would you consider turning off word verification? I have mine turned off and don't have a problem with spam. Blogger makes it very hard to read the words..and I usually give up after 3 tries!

  8. Hope you will feel better soon :) I like you playful and paper layer style LOs. They Are so cheerful and are allways so spiced up with little cute details.
    The Prima flower you are looking for I have seen at BIKUBEN a Norwegian netstore. When I was in Norway this summer I did some flower shopping there online. Try this link and see if it works:
