haasteluonnosta scraproomista. Siihen on vielä pari päivää aikaa osallistua.
Eeeeeeeeeeek! I scrapped! Super good! :) I had already been thinking about just quitting scrapping or taking a break from it as it has been too stressful for a long time. But I am happy I made this page. I just kept working on it slowly, trying not to get too anxious. I used a new photo and also, a new kit. This is a simple stories scrap-room kit from this month. I also used a sketch from scrap-room.

Well, it is Christmas week! I thought I'd better put my wishes here already so that I won't forget as it is kind of difficult to remember it is Christmas here. I need snow! :) I received some loooovely Christmas cards today. They made me so happy! So, with this card, I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas time! I hope you will get to relax, eat lovely goodies and of course, like on the card, have some happy carol singing time with the reindeer. smile.
P.S: Minä ja ihana Hippu aiotaan pitää ensi vuonna ruuanlaitto-leipomishaaste. Kaikki ovat hirmuisen tervetulleita ottamaan osaa!!! Siihen ei tarvitse tehdä muuta kuin laittaa joku itsevalitsema, tietyllä kirjaimella alkava resepti parin viikon välein! :)
P.S: My lovely friend Hippu and I are going to do a cooking/baking challenge next year. Everyone is more than welcome to take part in it!!! All you need to do is to bake/cook one recipe every fortnight. And you can even pick the recipe yourself! :)

Yaaaay! Strawberries! It was so nice to go out to the backyard to water the plants and find three pretty red strawberries there. Usually the birds have eaten them away before they get to this stage! We also have lots of flowers in the tomato bush. I wonder how many tomatoes we will get this summer. Exciting! :) Talking about food... I don't know if you have noticed on the right a link to my cooking blog. I have been updating that quite a bit lately. My cooking project is going so well. Have a look sometime! :)

Another layout! Yay! That title just looks really dumb. :( Sigh. But I do like this layout otherwise! I used here last month's Little Yellow Bicycle kit. One of the papers had a big tree with leaves.. I just cut out the tree trunk and used it here without the leaves. I like it how it looks like I am sitting in the shadow of the tree. :)

*giggles* Finally some wedding photos scrapping! :) Of course, I had to preserve our wedding shoes as a layout. Our wedding fashion was awesome! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!! The kit this time was Studio Calico - Memoir (scrap-room, October 2011), other than the chipboard flower which was from that Sassafras kit that I managed to kill.
Oh wow, a double! :) *smile* This poor layout had been waiting for weeks to be finished. Just didn't quite know what else to add. Well, it can be ready now. Too tired to spend any more time thinking about it. I'd rather just scrap new layouts instead. :) Well, I couldn't wait to make a layout with these photos. Whenever my mom visits, we always ask her to make a huuuuuuge batch of these Finnish donuts which are called munkki in Finnish. They are so yummy. We love having the freezer full of them. Yum! yum! I so wished we had some when I was making this layout and looking at those photos. sigh. The kit I used was American Crafts - Amy Tangerine (September 2011).

Yesterday I went scrapping at a local crop. Had really good time. Yay! We even had a lovely christmas lunch outside. I made three layouts and as per usual, I still need to add journaling to those. I managed to kill a kit by making this layout. Fantastic! I only had a bit of pp, half a sheet of sticker borders and some chipboard flowers. Well enough to make a layout. smile. I always feel so good when I manage to kill a kit. I wish I could do that more often! There is always so much material for quite a few layouts. Eeek! :)
