Layouts to share | The Daily Digi

I wanted to put in a plug for The Daily Digi since it’s the last day to purchase The [May] Digi Files. If you want to learn more you can check out The Digi Game for options for subscriptions and more; so you’ll never miss another set of files.

I’ve already blogged about some of the layouts I made for The Daily Digi this month (here (bottom half of the post) and here). And here are the rest of them:

[warming up for the new] Football Season

Finally. A big boy. Last year he had to hear the other guys talk about how fun it was to be at the football cup. This year he got to join in. He counted the days the last week and couldn’t be happier about the play. No worries if they lost or won, as far as he got to run, tackle and shoot the ball it was more than enough. And the fact that we had to stay over at the hotel for the night made his smile even bigger. A hotel with a huge swimming pool I might add. Pure bliss. Next year we’re staying an extra night and mama are not going to plan so badly that she has to drive back home for work early Sunday morning, mama is staying put next year. Or so is the plan.

[hopefully] first of many

[Today I spotted a beaver hive and lots of trees chewed down, to build their home in the river. I can’t wait to bring MT with me later this week to explore further.]

Last summer I walked down by the river at least twice a week. I filled my ears with favorite podcasts (mostly of the Paperclipping kind) and just put one foot in front of the other. Enjoying both days with sunshine and days with rain – and all those in between. So good to be outside, having the river as a background noise, looking at the nature around me and moving my body.

But then fall came and it got too cold. I stopped my walks. I’ve missed it, though, and now spring is here again and I’m happily back on track. Walking, not running, an hour or more. Taking it all in; the nature, the time alone, the movement, the words and laughter on my podcast. I love it. And now that the weather is a little bit warmer I’m ready to do it more often. Can hardly wait to go out there again.

Pearls of Life

Each year I tell our church’s youths about these pearls, we make wreaths with them and start to learn their meanings both for remembering the stories of Jesus and for helping us in our prayers . I love that it is a colorful wreath that gives me something to hold on to.

My favorite pearl is the blue pearl , the pearl of joy and peace; letting things go & leave it to God to take the lead.

I really had lots of fun playing with these kits and since I’m on the team I try to do at least 3 layouts with them; this month I made five. At our place (Norway) we have only 22 minutes left for the new month to start; hoping it’ll be a good one!

Wish you all the best for June!


Hipstamatic Photos

I’ve been kind of into taking photos with my phone again. I guess the light days and evenings helps, and with far more activity outdoors it’s easy to capture the moments with the camera I (almost) always have with me. Here are a few from the last weekends, taken using the Hipstamatic app.

My favorite! Love the colors and the peaceful feeling. Really screams summer to me πŸ™‚

Fishing in the Tiny Lake

Fishing in the Big Lake
Just love this one. The colors. The action. The framing.

So glad to be inside my car when the rain hit.


Playing Cards | UNO
A favorite card game in our house right now. MT is on a winning streak. And I’m not going easy on him. We have rematches scheduled for the entire summer πŸ˜‰

Thanks for looking at my HAPPY moments from the last week. There have been a lot of other things going on in our life as well, not so fun stuff as well. Just wanted to give the happy feeling some room. That’s the moments I want to remember!

** Ops. Fell asleep in the chair yesterday and forgot this wasn’t published. πŸ˜‰ Now it is.**


Digital Scrapbook Pages to Share

This past weeks have been so busy. But good as well. At least if you not count yesterday. I was sick and I don’t like that very much. In fact not at all. So to cheer me up here is a couple of digital scrapbook pages made with photos and memories that makes me happy. I’m so grateful for the moments I get to spend with my son, just me and him, the little family of us.

A few moments from a Saturday in May. We had some minutes to spend together outside. In between all the hustle & bustle of a normal Saturday at home happiness were found.

Read a little more about the day here.


Lake Splash

For as long as I have known him, he has loved to throw rocks (and sticks) in the water. So this afternoon after we’ve eaten the pizza we bought (it was a looong day at work, couldn’t handle the cooking) while sitting at a table down by the lake, he was more than happy to spend a few (many) minutes throwing and splashing. Got me thinking about all our trips down to the fjord when he was a little boy. Glad somethings stays the same. [10. April 2011]

I’ll be back with more pages and stories in a few days. Thanks for looking πŸ˜€

Have a sweet nice weekend!
