Enjoying Summer...

What can be more beautiful than old fashioned roses, like this Rosa Alba "Minette", a french rose that came to Sweden around 1819. It still is fairly common as it copes so well with the Swedish climate. A tough little rosebush with a wonderful fragrance! Grows in my neighbours garden but also hangs into mine, fortunately...




What more to enjoy this summer? Well, waffles with whipped cream and strawberry jam of course! At our local cafe they make delicious one's and you can sit outside in the sun enjoying the beautiful scenery of Göta Canal (our Swedish canal running from Gothenburg to Stockholm, built between 1810 and 1832.

 
 

And when it's raining, like yesterday, there's always some PL work to be done:)
Here's a new page...


 
 



Wishing you all a Beautiful summer:)

More Project Life...

I've haven't done much, creatively speaking, for a long while but finally I've managed to make some Project Life pages. Hopefully there will be more soon:)



 
 
 

 
 
I've looked around on the Internet for some inspiration and also for material to buy even though I'd like to do most of it myself. I can really recommend a visit to Geralyn's blog In a Creative Bubble. She's so talented and also got a blog shop with a lot of good stuff, like journaling cards. The card with the "Delicious" headline I've used here comes from her collection.
 
I can  also recommend an app for Ipad I've used a lot recently called Paper by FiftyThree. I've used it mostly as a diary where I can write and draw/paint. It's a lot of fun actually... like this sketch below I made the other day. You can also see that I used one of these diary notes for the birthday cake above.
