Grandpa etc.

I have two layouts to share with you today. Both of them are made with kits from my monthly kit switch with Zima. The first one is made with July's kit and it’s made for a challenge at Molly’s Scrapbooking. The challenge is to create something with banners on – and it must be more than one banner. This is what I came up with:
There are some special journaling on this one and it’s written on some of the banners. It is two stories about how much DD loves her grandpa. One says that one night when she was going to bed she told us that she has three best friends – two of them are her girlfriends from kindergarten and the third one are grandpa! :)
The second story says that, at kindergarten they asked all the 3-year-olds what they like most and they answered things like eating pancakes or playing with some favorite toy. DD answered playing with grandpa as he’s so cheerful! :)
(I love my father just as much and I was so happy to hear this).
All banners are cut out of patterned paper and some of them are doodled. The frame is doodled and cut out. The cool “net pattern” is cut with Zima’s Cameo. As I’m into a doodling period I had to doodle on them too ;).
The hearts are also cut with Zima’s Cameo and colored with some acrylic paint. That is, by the way, what I used to decorate the background too. :)
The second layout I’m sharing today is made from May's kit that had a sewing theme. The picture is taken when all the parents were at DD’s kindergarten one day to help fixing things. (I was making princess clothes).

I thought this picture went so well with the sewing theme but I wasn’t really satisfied with the outcome… I don’t know why, because it looks the way I wanted it to… But, I guess, all pages can’t be favorites… :) Here’s a close up:
That was all for today. (And a little bit too much, I guess!) I hope you enjoyed looking anyway!!! Take care!

  9. Ååååh! Du har gjort två fantastiskt fina layouter av kiten! Så himla roligt att se! Jag gillar ju verkligen det du skapar och det är nästan ännu mer intressant att se vad du skapar med grejerna du får i kiten. Du kommer alltid på så finurliga och fina idéer och lösningar. Och använder materialet på andra sätt än vad jag någonsin skulle komma på! Så inspirerande!!!

    Den första layouten är jättefin med sina banners! Och det blev snyggt med journalingen, liksom att det var fint att du doodlade dom där bitarna under fotot. Och vilka härliga minnen att få ner!

    Den andra layouten är vacker! Underbart med alla lager av kladd, papper, band och härligt syiga dekorationer! Och att du sytt med symaskinen på layouten förhöjer känslan. Tråkigt att du själv inte är så nöjd med layouten men det är som du säger, ibland gillar man inte en layouten sådär jättemycket fast det egentligen inte är något fel på den. Men jag gillar den! :)

    Kram Maria

  10. Men hallå!!! Så himla snyggt! Älskar dina vimplar och detaljer! =)
