Vegas absoluta favoritfika, -frukost, -kvällssmörgås är en rosa mugg med mjölk och en kall (dvs fryst), rund smörgås med leverpastej. Det här började hon med när hon var kring tre år (2010), och fortfarande kan hon be om samma fika även om det inte är lika ofta nu som förr.
Vegas favouritedish of all kinds: one pink cup of milk and one frozen, round sandwich with spread. A common habit that now is fading out!

CC hos Designat

Designat har cybercrop den här veckan, och jag har givit mig på färgutmaningen. Malena hade en bild på sin tvätt i härliga färger, som man skulle använda i sin layout, och det roliga var att jag också har en bild på tvätt - i samma färger! Jag har velat scrappa den ett tag, men inte vetat riktigt hur jag vill göra. Nu lossnade det! :)

Texten lyder:
Ibland ser man faktiskt skönheten i detaljerna.
Vi hade badat i poolen alla fem den här kvällen, med mycket plask och skratt.Vi var lediga. Det var varmt ända till sena kvällen.
Vardagsvackert en sommarkväll:
t.o.m. handdukarna på sina stänger lyste klart och skönt.

Sometimes you really see the beauty in the details.
We were bathing in the pool all five of us this evening, with lots of splashes and laughter. We had the day off. The air was warm until late night.
Everyday beauty a summer evening:
even the towels on their rack were shining.

En vecka 2011

Last week I participated in Ali Edwards week in the life-project. This was the first time for me, and I was very much unsure if I could do it at all. I'm kind of tired out this summer, for a lot of reasons, and I didn't want to take on more than I could finish.
BUT, as always I'm so tempted by this kinds of projects: to capture a bit of everyday-life and to make a nice album of it in the end. So I decided to give it a try. I also decided not to blog about it every day, and not to participate in the week in the life-forum at BPC, just to make things easier. (I am a member at the forum, and read a little, but I don't write.)
Now, I just want to share a few favorite photos from the week, which I started at Sunday 24 and ended at Friday 29, as it happend to be.
Sunday, reading books in the sofa, together.

Monday, summerlunch.

Tuesday. We have an all time high in cherries this year, and a lot of time has been spent on harvest.Wednesday. Our tiny, tiny laundryroom, that works so well, and that we like so much.

Thursday. Waking up together on a summermorning.

Thursday. Friends visiting and intense playing= lot of stuff on the floor.

Thursday, three lovely kids!

Friday and the three lovely kids has left the building. We are celebrating our 16th anniversary all on our own.

15 år

Förra sommaren firade vi 15-årig bröllopsdag. Det var verkligen ett ganska lågmält firande =) men vi bad i alla fall mellansonen att ta några kort på oss. De flesta blev suddiga, skakiga (mycket beroende på att hans syskon skuttade runt honom...) och väldigt autentiska. Så här ser vårt liv ut just nu!
Ömsom kraftpapper och ömsom skira spetsar, kan man säga, och en liten aning glitter sprejat över alltihop.

Last summer we had our 15th anniversary. It was a very quiet celebration, really, but we asked our middle son to take our picture. Most of them were blurry (thanks to his siblings dancing around him) and they were also very authentic! This is our life, right now!
It's both kraft paper and delicate laces, so to speak. And also a pint of glitter spritzed over it all!

Journaling goes:
15 years ago, when we took the step and said yes to each other, for the rest of our lives, we had already shed off the romanticism. What was left was a rock solid: this is going to be so fun!
On the 15th anniversary we have been through quite a lot, been discussing one thing and another, solved a few questions. And what is clear, above everything else is that: it is so fun! to share this life.

Ett försök till att scrappa många bilder i samma layout, vilket jag tycker är svårt! Jag gjorde en vänstersida med ett foto och mer dekorationer och en högersida med resten av fotona. Tyvärr blev det lite för mycket text på vänstersidan; jag skriver nästan alltid för hand av bl.a. ren lathet, och då tar texten ibland för mycket plats. Temat är våra utflykter till biblioteket, som vi har hållit på med i några år och som har en egen ritual med fika och högar av böcker.

Text heavy!! I like my handwriting, and I never type, out of lazyness, but sometimes I think I should! :D Another attempt to scrap many photos in the same LO, with one decorated single-photo left page and a photocollage on the right.
It's a LO about our frequent trips tp the library, comparing photos from 2007 and 2010.

My husband loves electronic devises, and calls himself a geek. When I wanted to take his picture, this is how he posed (at first), as he knows that I think that he looks to much at his smart phone... I haven't wrote anything yet, and I'm not sure that all I want to say will fit in on those small papers! =)

My eldest son were going to a costume party at school, and all family helped him to put the costume together. He was so happy with it, and he also won a chocolate bar for "best costume". A completely magical evening! :)
