Happy Sunday!!!

Wow! What a week! What a weekend!!!

FD 1

I could get used to turning 40.

But my boy told me yesterday that it was an once in a lifetime experience and I should really make the most of it. So I did. My family and friends helped by pampering me with love, cake and presents. ♥♥♥ And I realized (once again) that my boy is not only cute, he is pretty smart too… :)

Now over to some scrappy business.

Card Patterns sketch #133 was launched yesterday.

Super fun sketch and super fun sponsor!!!

Here is my card using the lovely Daffodil Charlotte from Sparkle Creations.

CP 133

All info about the challenge and amazing inspiration from the Design Team can be found on the Card Patterns’ Blog. Hope you will play with us!

Next up is the Layout Sketch from Svensk Scrapbooking’s monthly sketch challenge.

And here is my take:


The photo is of the mansion Hennikehammar, where we held our Kick Off conference with work this year. It was such a beautiful place! Lot’s of Cocoa Daisy kit goodies on this one.

And finally – a new inspiring sketch challenge is up over at Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps

Here is my take using the Cardinal Clear Stamp Set and Die

The season

All info about the challenge can be found HERE, and it’s open until September 30th. Prickley Pear also has a DT call out. Last day to apply is September 20th! You find it HERE!

Time to get breakfast ready for my guests. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Happy, happy birthday to you, Tesa! So glad you had a wonderful birthday weekend. That son of yours is one smart boy! :)
Love all your scrappy projects. Your Prickley Pear sketch card is fabulous. I love how you used the cardinals as the diamonds in the sketch. Such a beautiful layout, too. The flowers and leaves, buttons and pearls are so, so pretty. And how adorable is that garden girl? Love it all!
