scrapbooking, the farm

Scrapbooking | Jan 2015

As a member of the team at I get to scrap with the digi files early. This fall I’ve been so slow to scrap and have very few pages to show for myself, hoping this new year will be filled with stories scrapped and told. Below is what I made with the January files:

My words was written in Norwegian, here is what they say:

It was with a lot of emotions we left your first homeland to fly to your new home. A few days earlier we had become a family of two. I was excited and happy (and a little bit scared as all mothers are). It’s hard to fathom that it’s now 9 years ago we sat on that plane together, but looking at the photos it’s easy to see. You have grown so much, we’ve moved from West Norway and now we live on our farm. We are a little family tightly bound. I’m so glad it was you that was to be my son. I’m proud to see what a great young man you are on the verge to become. I guess the next 9 years also will move fast, I’m curious to see what they will contain, but mostly I’m looking forward to follow along as you grow.

This too was written in Norwegian, I tend to do that when I want to express myself more freely, this is what it says, more or less:

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed of taking over the farm back home, dreamed about grain and vegetables, about fields and animals, about woods and houses, about what I most want to do: run an ecological farm taking care of both nature and people. Never did I think it should be so hard to find the right balance, not having enough strength to do as I wish, with so many tasks that just wait for me to start. I’m still dreaming about running the farm, getting both people and animal to thrive here, but it won’t happen over night. I’m practice being patient and brave, soon I’m the farmer, so then my dad finally can get some rest and enjoy his senior-farmer days.

As always: THANKS for stopping by!

The Daily Digi | July Layout #2

Every month I get to scrap with some of the most gorgeous kits from various designers in the digi community. I love being a part of The Daily Digi Team – and most of the pages I do for them ends up becomming some of my all time favorites. Below is a look at the second one I did for the July edition of The Digi Files, using a kit from Crisdam Designs.

It was an unbelievable beautiful day down by the fjord. The water shone in blue and emerald green, it was spring in the air. We went for a walk and went the usual path; first toward the old school, then by the church and then we went over the creek and made a stop by the water edge. You wanted to run on the gras this time. (5. june 2006)

We are enjoying our vacation in the western part of our country. The fjord smells just as lovely as ever and spending time with our dear friends are just as precious. MT even got to go down to the fjord and throw a few rocks the other day. He never gets too old for that!! I love living close to our family and the farm – but a part of me will always wish that I still lived here.

As I started this page I planned on using far more Hot Pink that I ended up using. I will still post it for Shimelle’s Hot Pink Challenge, because it was there it started 😀

I love the mood of this photo of a place I lived for a couple of years (almost ten years ago now), the photo is not sharp by any means but it has a fairytale quality. At least to me. It’s taken late in the evening, the sunset is giving everything a tint of pink. I love how the road gives my eyes a path to travel; to the timber house where I used to live for a few years ten or so years ago.

Made with papers and embellishments from recent Studio Calico kits.

I have one more layout to share. Look for a new post soon!
