Tuesday, wonderful Tuesday! Thicker tights and bootlets make this chick nice and cozy on her way to work. We will most likely get our first snow by next week, time to bring in the flower pots from the balcony in other words. Bye bye flowers, sleep tight till spring comes!
So happy for you guys in the southern hemisphere who've got summer around the corner! enjoy warmer breezes and days in the sun.
Last week the gallery over at CSI was positively dreamy with the soft pretty
colors and gorgeous pages that the members had been adding! The new Case File released on Friday brought a bolder palette.

Here's my take - "All You Need". I'm really sorry for the poor photo quality, it's been cloudy over here for several days so I had to lighten up the photo quite a bit in PS.
I used card stock in kraft as base and then went about adding texture to it.
The evidence I have used are circles (the embossed pattern you can see here), modeling paste, flowers and polka dots.
My journalling is at the back of the page and was sparked off by the inspirational word "small". I could of course have written a list of 12 things that I cannot be without but there are actually just 2, both will be revealed at the end of this post.
The things I cannot be without are not big or ostentacious. On the contrary, it's the very small things that are most important.
Waking up before the alarm and seeing my husband still peacefully asleep.
Feeling little paws climbing over me in our bed and seeing their darling little faces checking if I'm awake.
Seeing that I am, hearing them purring contently when they curl up on my pillow.
Tasting the very first sip of the very first cup of coffee in the morning and seeing the sky over Stockholm get ligther with the rising sun.
Hearing the patting of my husband's feet when he comes into the kitchen with sleep-tousled hair and hearing the cats' hungry miaows.
Knowing it's Saturday/Sunday and we have a whole day together to look forward to.
Seeing the smile in his eyes when he looks at me and the tenderness with which he wraps me in a fleece blanket because he knows my feet are cold.
Coming home from a long day in the office knowing that I have a warm home waiting for me.
Putting up my feet and being allowed to catch my breath before we cook dinner together.
All you need is actually love and, some chocolate! Talking of which, I think I'll go and see if hubbs has emptied the choc box we got yesterday. That man has a mean sweet tooth but not a cavity in sight!
Thanks for your lovely visit and have a fab rest of the week!
Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
