An LO for a Rainy Day + first published article in Scrap365 + winners of my bloganniversary give-aways

Hello beautiful friends!

May is progressing at rapid speed, now it's only a week left to the multi artistic exhibition in which I will participate together with 4 other people. The private viewing takes place in a gallery in the Old Town of Stockholm next Saturday.

My GDT spot with Prima in June is also only less than 3 weeks away. Feeling super thrilled thinking about that, but first I'd like to share a page that I created for the spring issue of the PaperHaus Magazine. As it sadly closed down shortly before its release, the page hasn't been shown before.

It was made for the gallery theme "Spring/Rain", so here goes;

Our cats often sit and look out the window when it’s raining. 
Dreaming, completely lost in their own thoughts. 
When they were kittens, they used to press their little noses onto 
the window and chase the raindrops from the inside.

This photo is not my own though, I found it on internet.
