I am so lucky to be aunt to two beautiful girls and a little boy.
The two girls are just like me, they love to make things,stamp and colour. Yesterday my oldest niece Sofie who is 12 came over because she wanted to make me a bookmark. She was so happy because I have made bookmarks to all of them, but then she realized that I had not made any to myself!
She's an amazing girl and I just love her very much!
Check out what she made me! :
She chose the Nurse Gillian image from Prairie Fairy design for my bookmark, since I'm a nurse and my summervacation is over and I'm back to work!
The lo and design is all by her, and of course she did colour the image by herself (with my copics!) and I must say she did a terrific job!

Flowers from my Prima and Petaloo, free digi download "just for you" from Lynne, rubon from 7Gypsies and pearls and papers from my scrapstash :)

The back with her signature!

And this is my princess in action:

I'm sure she will love to read the comments, so please leave her a note if you have the time :)

She's entering her bookmark here:

To my sisters

I am so lucky to have three sisters that I love very much.
After the terrible happenings here in Norway this friday, I made them a bookmark, just to tell them that they are really important to me and that
I love them.
Not a big thing, but I think they will appreciate it.

3 different bookmarks, to 3 different girls :)

I have used my alltime favorite Teddy Bo image, Three little piggies, that you can buy here

My deepest thought goes to those who have lost one
 in this senceless tragedy
Take good care of yourself and the ones you love
Big hugs

My first TeePee card

I just had to try one of those after seeing a teepee card on my sweet DT friend Colette's blog.
I was going to colour in the new one of Teddy Bea and Olifant "Summer swing", but my sweet (not always...) daughter had painted the nails on Olifants toes pink, so I tok "Your wish will come true" instead...
Here is my teepee:
Designpapers from Basic grey and Prima.
Flowers..hmmm sometimes I don't know when to stop, just keep glueing on..
But they are from WOC, Petaloo, and Kort og Godt

This is one of the sides with my personal stamp on.
This is the other side with a place to leave a message
When you fold it out, it looks like this. I used a small magnet under the dp to keep the teepee closed when it's standing, works perfect!
The rub on is MF and the birthdaytext is a free download from a blog and I'm so sorry that I can't remember the name! Sorry!! If anyone knows I will be so glad to know!

Enter my card here:

Hi my sweet friends
It's tuesday again and in my world of crafting that means Teddy Bo tuesday!
Every tuesday it's a new release of graphics over at Teddy Bo and I always have a hard time choosing, but today I picked out this lovely couple:
I love the way this card came out.
Coloured with my copics, distessed with Frayed burlap from Ranger around the image.

The beautiful papers are from Poppy design (by Vibece Spigseth) and they are so shiny and beautiful in real life.
Charms from hjerteboden, flowers from Prima, Kort og Godt and Papirdesign.
Old lace and pearls and a swirl from TH.
The letters are new and bought at Bikuben, sooo nice.. ;)

Aaahhhh, they are sooo cute :)

Head over to the shop to check the new images closer, but here they are
I'm sure you will love them as much as me!

I just want to show you some pictures of Gabriella and me from her birthday. Over at The Beary Scrap they have a challenge going on and it's about finding inspiration in your closet. The most in my closet has the colours light pink, blue and brown, maybe not the best pictures to show but it was the best I had! So my card is my enter to the challenge there :)
I would also love to enter Copic creations where they ask you to show your pastel colours and at Scrapalicious they want to see bears on your project, so I gave them two! At Simon Says Stamp they are having anything goes,  and finally, one of my nowegian favorit blogs  Anonyme scrappere wants  to see flower power.

Bye, bye :)
