Last time I was home in Norway I had a wonderful evening scrapping with my good friend Trude. Scrappejungelen had recently received the New Websters pages papers and I got to play with them for some LO's for the store in Stavanger. I love Websters, they are SO beautiful, and gets my creative juices flowing every time ;-)
"Syden" is a Norwegian term used for the Mediterranean area. It is what the kids call where-ever we have been on holiday, whether it's Spain, Greece or Turkey. The picture is from a house we rented in Spain last year. We absolutely loved it, and are going back in a week (I can hardly wait!).
A close up of my daughter minutes before her 7th birthday party. She can hardly wait!
Ella from our vacation to the cabin in 2007, holding a crab her daddy caught for her. The little summer memories that are so precious.
My daddy is super-strong!
From the same vacation, with my husband carrying the kids. I love this picture :-)
I love the Tracy Chevalier books. It started with Girl With a Pearl Earring, and I have read all of them (as far as I know) since then. So when Remarkable Creatures came last fall, I had to get it right away. The setting is from Lyme Regis. Which was the first thing to spark my interest. Lyme Regis on the South Western coast of the UK is known for fossils. I thought it would be interesting for the kids as well. They learnt about rocks and fossils in their nursery in Norway. Anyways, we took a daytrip there in May and it was really special and beautiful! We are sure to go back :-)
