We woke up to a new Sweden today. A Sweden with it’s first elected racist party in the parliament. I’m sad. And ashamed. But I know that the fight against racism and xenophobia has only started.
Over to scrapbooking. While listening to the election results all night yesterday I made a layout with some really old photos. When Dear Son quit kindergarten four years ago, he got a bag filled with photos taken during his time there. Many photos spanning from he was 1,5 – 5,5 years old. Most of them with really bad quality and with the colors the children of Welfare Sweden know all to well – washed out yellow and grey and green (why does every kindergarten, school, hospital, commune office HAVE to have these colors???? Nobody knows!)… Anyway, I have been hoarding them, wanted to make something out of them anyway, cause it’s an important part of J’s history.
This week’s Sketchy Thursday sketch is what made me finally do something with a few of the photos. The sketch is a great one!!! And as you can see, I followed it pretty close!
I’ve also started my tag making process. I love this Magnolia tag die. Simply perfect for Christmas tags! The stamps used are Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.
I’ll be back tomorrow with some of the cards I made last night – election nights are made for radio and crafting!!! LOL!
