Bloggparty and a card

I’ve done my second challenge for the big Bloggparty going on until October 4th. This challenge is held by Alexandra, and you are supposed to lift one of her layouts. Loads of beautiful pages are to be found on her blog. But since I LOVE black backgrounds, Basic Grey papers, scalloped boarders and those little mini alphabet stickers from MM this one was an obvious choice.

Alexandra’s page:Alexandras layout

My lift:Hur står det till...Recipe: Papers; Bazzill, Basic Grey. Letters; Basic Grey and Making Memories. Flowers and swirl; Prima. Buttons; MME. Pearls: Kaiser Kraft. Brads; American Crafts. MS Edge Punch, Provo craft die cut.

I have no idea how to translate the title “Hur står det till med bordsskicket???”, but the content is a question about how they behave when having dinner. The photos are from a family dinner at a restaurant and the three sweeties under the table are my son and his tow cousins. Got to be proud of your children, right?!Hur står det till... detalj

I woke up kind of early this morning. When I first opened my eyes it was 4.45 am, 15 minutes later I gave up. It’s a good thing… I’ve had several hours this morning by my scrap table. One CAN NOT start cleaning the house while people are still asleep, right! so after this layout was done, I made a card. I started out with an idea I’ve had since I got my new stamps “Happiness” from Artistic Outpost. I masked and colored and cut them out. But then what? Went up and found the new sketch challenge released at Caardvarks. The rest was piece of cake!

The sketch (#2):Sketch_THREE_DRSI flipped it but followed it pretty close otherwise.

ThankfulRecipe: Papers; Bazzill, MME, Basic Grey. Stamps: Artistic Outpost, sentiment from PTI. Flowers: Prima. Charm. Tools: QK, MS Edge Punch.

I also incorporated a little charm, a dragonfly, to fit the 365 cards challenge today.

I guess I can’t hold back the cleaning business any more. Have a lovely Saturday!
