Graphic 45 fun

*waves* yes I am still alive. Somehow since  coming back from the holiday my life continues to be a bit? upside down. And I am still playing catch up… Since my last post I’ve been either working like a mad thing or been sick as in bed, tummy bugs, colds, coughing- throwing up-  sniffling and more- I’ve done it all. I’m sick of being sick! Gosh it feels good to feel almost human again;p
Now I just need some more energy and time to catch up with everyone’s blogs.

But enough whining, I also had some funtimes, especially when I was scrapping with the cool stuff from NZScrapbook shop. The yummy paperline is called graphic45, vintagey and doublesided it has lots of potential uses.

And I am so loving all the photos we took from when Ronja was here, wonderful to have such a beautiful girl to scrap! I wish she was here always!!!
Must say looking at the LO’s all together it’s a bit of a ‘style’ mix. and who am I today?;p Freestyler or Minimal or what;p Guess that’s me, a bit of whatever mood I’m in at the time.

Beach combing at a local beach…

Oopsie Rainer forgot to his journaling, well once it comes back from the shop! I was thrilled with the serene title embroidery, especially since I’d handwritten it, and well you should know by now how messy my normal handwriting is… forgotten? just look below;p

Ronja was determined to go all the way up to the topfloor on the skytower even though she’s afraid of heights. She loved the view, preferably from a safe distance to the windows, and it took Rainer quite a bit of coaxing and a leap of faith and the belief in the safety of Dads arm for her to get that close to the window. Loved those moments between Dad and his little girl.

The one below was inspired by some dolls I saw in some magazine somewhere. Thought the vintagey paper could handle a bit of country-fying;p

I did quite a bit of embroidery on a few LO’s but forgot to take detail shots 😦 The one below I love. Already have a few ideas that spin of that one.

Yesterday I hiked up to NZScrapbook Shop to drop off my stuff and to shop a little. I knew they had a lot of new stuff in but OMG I was blown away by all the new stuff on the shelves. Ask Ann she can attest how I dashed about saying Oh yes Oh how cute Oh I love this and that and oh Look! Oh I want this. LOL. All the ranges from BG, gorgeous papers from SEI, DCVW- sparkle goodness, to die for Prima stamps, amazing Kaiser stuff, felt like half the shop was new stock! Check out the NZScrapbook blog . I was in heaven. And Ann is such an Angel she stayed on after work to spend some time with me, thank you Ann, love how we just click and enjoy our meet ups!

Wah 23.19 already and I have another early start tomorrow, better dash!
TFL and have a great week and  I hope to catch up to your blogs during the week.
