Skissedilla sketch nbr 220 - Happy or What - and PaperHaus Magazine's DT call

So everything, well not quite everything, is back to normal again. Work has begun but still summer lingers on even if the evenings are getting a lot darker and colder.

Today is Sunday, which means release day over at Norwegian Skissedilla. 

HERE is the link to the reveal.

I have been asked if I change my style of scrapping depending on which site I scrap for. The answer is both yes and no. I do tend to use brighter and bolder colours for Skissedilla but the flowers are still there. It's nice to venture outside one's box once in a while, but shabby chic has a special place in my scrappy heart.

Here is the Dilla sketch nbr 220;

And here is my take on it - "Am I Happy Or What"

While purging my stash I of course found lots and lots of products that I had forgotten all about. Among them were some ancient Sassa Frass Lass papers and Basic Grey stickers that I decided to use on this page.

I was inspired by the grid and used 4 photos to my normal 1 or maximum 2. 
This is the daughter of my friend who passed away last winter 
on her graduation day in May. 
The hat is the typical Swedish graduation hat with 
embroidered white velvet top.

 I also found rolls upon rolls of washi long forgotten. These are MME I think.

My much treasured Corine flowers. Still got a few packs of them, 
they are among the last existing 
in the world. Boohoo! :(

Lots of things happening over at the PaperHaus Magazine!

Have you seen our DT call!

Deadline for applications is 20 August 2013.

And that's it for this post!

I will be back on Wednesday, 14th with my second take on the 
Once Upon A Sketch August challenge, 
a more free interpretation. 

Till then, thanks a million for your invaluable support! it means so much to me.

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
