Our garden..

As i have told you before, i am not a garden girl, i do not have any green fingers what so ever, but that doesnt mean i dont like the beauty of a garden! I did walk around in our garden yesterday and took some shots of some pretty flowers and some other stuff. Think mostly its weeds but they look rather beautiful to me!

We have a pond with lots of water-lilys (wich isnt in bloom right now) and some other things floating around..and that fountain looks rather old and needs some work i think.

and because we have a pond we have a garden full of these little creatures...they are tiny, not larger than my thumbnail! One morning when i got up and went out to go to the bus, the garden was full of them, i couldnt put my feet down anywhere without the risk of slatering a frog! Must have been the moment they decided to move away from home! We still have a lot of them though, if you stay still and watch out over the grass you will see them jumping here and there!

I also managed to pick 1,9 kg of these babies (redcurrants) yesterday...they look so yummy but i really dont know what to do with them...so i put them in the freezer until i might have some more berrys and fruits so i can make me some lemonade or jam or something. Any suggestions?

This is actually one of the flowers that is supposed to be in the garden (i think *lol*)

This little guy (bigger than the frogs) is packing up his lunch, i got to vitness when he caught and killed a bug and then he started to roll it in to his web until he had a nice little lunchbox ready!

weeds again...

we have these big big ferns on the side of the house...gorgeous when they are green...hiddius when they starts to wither! Dont know if we should keep them or not.

we also found this little guy...and i had to go google him, its a Limax maxius (or panthersnail(slug?) in swedish, dont know the english word for it...looks more like leopard than panther to me though). Apparently its good to have him in the garden! So he can stay!

My favorite weed...dandelion

just so beautiful!

The blackberrys are coming along quite nicely! Not gonna have as much as last year though cuz i have cut a lot of them down cuz they are taking over the garden!

And finally i took a shot off the field "next door"...they look so beautiful!

and Bella took one as well...you can feel the movement in this shot, she is good with the camera my little girl!

ok, hope you enjoyed the little garden tour.....and i hope you all are having a wonderful time where ever you are!

Having the best time

Yay...my sister is home and we are having a fab time! Its so nice to see her again after almost a year. Our kids are getting along just great, Bella and Freya has developed their own little language a mix between english and swedish, but really...its sounds like, ha ha ha i cant even describe it...like the swedish chef in the muppetshow or something! And Kian has become so big, he was just a baby the last time i saw him...and now he can count to 10...geez, the time flies!

We had a lovely midsummer and i have lots of pics to show later on (not in my camera) but i will show you our girls, they were running around like snow white chasing our brothers boy, cuz he is of course the prince...and they actually stopped so we can get a photo of them..a rare moment, standing still! These three are just a few days apart...so fun to see them play together! I promise more pics later on, maybe even one of my sis and me! ;)

In the middle of all of this, the designers at CatScrap released a Catwalk collection with some amazing colors, it is so fun to mix and match all these yummy products (btw, there is a challenge on the CatScrap blog right now, were you can win a gc for $10 to the CatScrap store, just by mixing and matching some of these fab stuff from the Catwalk!)

Here are some of the pages i have done, for credits go to my gallery (have not posted all yet)

I am off work today so we (me and Bella) will soon meet up with the cousins and head for the beach, we have really lovely weather and who knows, maybe i will even jump in the water? Brrrr...or not! LOL! Have a great day/week ya all!

A new designer..

Here are some scrapping news...we have a new designer over @ CatScrap! Our very own CT member Peppermint has shifted side, she is now a CatScrap Designer "One Little Bird" and her stuff is just beautiful! Here is one layout I did with her "In the moment" kit, this is for our CT Spotlight this month...we are lifting the very talanted Crystalbella77...so if you feel like it, please come and join!

FruitLoOp Sally has a new kit out as well, "Milk and Honey"...this is a very soft and beautiful kit and was so fun to play with, here are two pages I made:

And Dawn Inskip have a collab with Kaye Winiecki, "Zodiac", fun fun fun!!

And Creashens has a very pink kit called "Razzle", and if you want to you can head over to After 5 Designs and get K Studios Dazzle, and voila...you have RazzleDazzle!!

This is my scrapping news for now. On another note I have joined the 365project, but since I know myself I am doing it weekly...so that it may not be a picture a day but it sure is pictures from that week! And I am soo lucky to have got a new camera...a Canon 450D..with EF-S 18-55/3,5-5,6 IS and EF-S 55-250/4-5,6 IS and a Speedlite 270 EX...my gosh....I hardly dare to touch it! I soo need to learn how this works so I can start shoting some gorgeous photos!!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
C ya soon!

A new year and a...

new blog. Had to do some refreshing after seeing my sisters new and oh so cute blog! The new year has started out cold! Its been a long time since it was this cold in a winter in our parts of sweden.
Just thought that I should show you some photos of Bella from Christmas eve, she has a new look...her tounge is out as soon as she see the camera!

And the new year started the same...with her tounge out! LOL! Oh well...I am not to happy about having my picture taken either so I understand her!

But she can be quite cute when she doesnt notice that I have my camera on.

Since its been so cold we had to find stuff to do inside, she has given me a show with her hand puppets...nothing wrong with her imagination!

But of course, we have been outside playing in the snow as well, she loves it!

We had to take care of our little birds in the garden as well...they are really trying hard to find something to eat and was so so happy when we gave them some food...think we got some friends for life!

I have been doing some scrapping and here are some of my pages:

Hope you all had a wonderful christmas and new year and that you all are feeling just fine. I have seen that many of you are doing the Project 365 and it is so fun to see all your beautiful photos, I think I will do the Project 52 instead...lol...feels more like I am going to be able to finish that one!
Have a great week, "talk" to you soon!
