a faith scrap – from the bible; psalm 17:8
credits: paper and element from unconditional love by late night scrap
Bea is one of our good friends from back where we used to live 1.5 years ago, she is also one of MT’s godparents. We don’t see her as often as we wish, but this weekend we spend a few days together. And, off course, I had to take a few photos of her and MT together. The favorite got scrapped:

Journal: This weekend our good friend Bea came to stay with us. It was so nice to catch up, celebrate birthdays, drink coffee and just hang out together. I shot a few photos of Bea and MT, this one is my favorite. I love MT’s half smile and the way Bea looks at him. So much humor and love there!
As you can see, I’m testing my own block/boxy templates. Head over to my lime scrapped if you want a template freebie (available in a couple of days…).
I had big plans for this day:
- shoving snow
- clearing and boxing the Christmas decoration (yes, I know, been a while since I started doing this – got to get it finished already)
- making a 2009 calendar for a few family members (ahem, a really late Christmas gift…)
- clean and clear!!
- do some laundry
- run the dishwasher. Hey! I did that; the machine is running right now. Yay.
- make a fabulous and easy dinner (not going to happen )
- be ready to ski with my boy for ski carousel (I’m going to go there with him at least – he’ll be the one skiing, though!)
But I got so slow – almost like I-can’t-move-out-of-the-couch kind of feeling. So I stayed on it with the computer in front of me. Reading, smiling, downloading and getting inspired to scrap. Sadly the sun is soon leaving my backyard, and it would be nice to be outside feeling the sun on my face – but I just needed this hours of rest to come to grip with myself.
I’m still hoping to do some of the things on my list; but surely not all!!
Enjoy life – take time to rest and regroup
I’ve had some fun trying out new techniques on my scrap page this weekend. I also found some old photos from November 2006. I love these where MT is outside catching soap bubbles. The bubbles in the air is extracted from another photo, though, wish I had one where the bubbles had blue sky behind them originally…..
Anyhow; here it is:
alpha (recolored) by Britt-ish design; all else from Babyyaks
I LOOOOOOOOVE the colors and that beautiful blended face!
BLOWING BUBBLES As long as I’ve known him, MT has loved to blow bubbles. I love his smiles of joy and curiosity from this bright November day.
Jess is out with another kit at her sunshine studio scraps store. I got to be among the first ones scrapping with it. So fun, and also a challenge since pink isn’t really my color – but there is lots of other colors too
If you pop over to the store you can see that she also has quick pages made, leafs to go with the flowers and even some printables. Lots of GOOD stuff!!
This kit is perfect for Valentines day and for scraps of your loved ones – and, as you can see, it even works for BOYS and firework!!!
Here is my second go, a bit simpler approach! The above took me more or less all weekend to finish – this one below took a couple of hours
This is a cross-post from lime scrapped
We got home late from the birthday yesterday, so today has been a day to recover and get ready for the everyday life starting tomorrow. It came some snow last night, so MT had fun playing in it and I got my exercise showing it out of our way. I also got some more wood in to the wood fire that we have got going all day; it’s so cold at our place – tonight closer to 20 degrees below zero than ever before this winter. Brrr. Almost wished I could stay at home tomorrow and keep the house warm, it gets cold so easily!
Anyhow, wanted to show you what I did scrapping today and then I’d better get to bed – tomorrow is an early morning(!)
Here is our Christmas Tree, a tiny bit crocked – but we like it!
