WHY?

Is the question I ask myself every time a Swap deadline is coming up. WHY did I enter this one??? Once the panic scrapping is done and the stuff is mailed out (in time - but just barely) I know the answer and instead I ask myself WHY??? Why do I wait until the last freakin minute????? Next time, I promise myself, next time I'll do it right away. Yeah right! Today I'm in the panic mode. Need to get 8 ATC mailed out tomorrow. 6 down, 2 to go. Why the panic one might ask. There is a whole day to go. Well, not quite, I'm visiting my parents. 4,5 hours away from my scraproom.

We have had a wonderful weekend so far. I've helped my mum out with some paper crafting related projects. With her limited vision she needs help with the precision part. So we're in kind of a joint venture. We've made recipies (for a swap - yeah, she is as into it as I am... lol), a birthday card and a canvas. Pretty productive!
The canvas is a case/lift of one of my old layouts. She's decided everything, layout, pics, papers, embellies... and I've done most of it.
To be a one hour project done by two women with strong will, it's ok. LOL! Last time I was here, I did a graduation card which I haven't blogged just yet. Only to share something that is actually my doing all together.
Besides scrapbooking we've been enjoying beautiful Swedish summer. EARLY (and I mean EARLY) yesterday morning, me, my dad and dear son went down to the sea to fish. Well, we didn't get much, but the morning at the harbour was out of this world. Fantastic!!! I miss living here. Soooo much!

Wish you all a wonderful Sunday!!!

I love that Ringo layout! Amazing work of art :) The little butterflies really make it all mesh for some reason, maybe the striking colour contrast? Love it!

Hejsan! Wow vad du har varit produktiv på sistone! Gillar Ringo lo:n och kortet är oxå så fint, du är så duktig Tesa och din mor oxå, hälsa henne det! :-) Hoppas hon mår bättre nu!
Älskar de kort du gjort i de senaste inläggen oxå, de är helt underbara!

Vad mysigt och gå upp tidigt för att fiska! Det viktigaste är inte hur mycket fisk man lyckas få utan det viktigaste är att man får kvalitetstid tillsammans och trivs och det tycks ni ha fått. :-)

Ha en underbar måndag!
Kramis Susanne!

PS: Imorrn åker mina receptkort iväg till dig då de äntligen blev färdiga idag. DS
