Here is my LO for week #98 over at CCG. I used a picture of myself holding my ab fave Starbucks cup, I just love it!!! Thank you Bigsiss (I know bigsis:)). She gave it to me as a B-day pressie. The reason I used this picture is that I took this summer is because it fitted perfectly as an illustration for the theme of the LO I wanted to make. As soon as I got the combo from Janet/CCG I just knew I wanted to make an LO to honour one of my greatest “discoveries” and “loves” of life......COFFEE!!! I went all crazy with a brown stamp pad to make my cardstock the right shade of brown. And I used a Starbucks paper bag as the mane pp and photo mat. And the “energy” inspiration is from this weeks OLW:)

I had my very first cup of coffee when I was four years old. It was mandatory at my grandmothers house that one had coffee and toast for breakfast. There was no discussion about it. It was just the way it was. As a young child one was aloud to have milk/cream and sugar in the coffee. But she didn’t really like that we did it in that way, or as she used to put it ”yes of course you can have milk/cream and sugar in your coffee.......If you want to ruin it”.

PLS NOTE; this was back in the day, ages ago and when I was a young girl and coffee wasn’t as bad for you as it is nowadays :). And she was a fantastic grandmother!

Sorry for the bad pic, will take a new one when I have time and the sun is out.
Note To Self; the sun will be back in june 2009.

...about how............Eeeeeekkkkkk!!!! I am so tierd today but I have to post this. Hope my text makes sense :) Here is my LO for week #97 over at Color Combos Galore. Journaling reads; I sat patiently in my pj’s with the camera in my hand like a paparazzi and waited. I wanted to take a picture of you when you came back home, after going out in the cold in the middle of the night just to buy us ice cream. You took on this great task all by yourself simply because I had a deadline and was working late and needed some encouragement, and for the most important reason of them all “ we where just dying for some old fashion vanilla flavour ice cream to go with the leftover apple pie that we made the day before”. The LO was supposed to be a two pic one. But the picture of Bob aka Mr Moustache was a bit dark in the colours, it didn’t go with this weeks combo so I decided to only use the picture of the apple pie and ice cream on it instead :) Have a great week!!!

Used this weeks OLW word "Listen" in my title. Journaling on the back of the LO.
And I am really sorry for the bad Q of my pic.....no sun here, at all!!! :(

...about how this is my Lo for week#96 over at Color Combos Galore. The combo this week was really difficult and a real challenge for me, not all of the colours and I get along. The combination of green and purple is not my cup of tea and to be honest purple and I don’t get along at all. We are not friends at all. But when we meet up among friends like green, white and (one of my all times fave) grey we get along quite nicely. So I am pleased that I took on the challenge and used as much purple as possible and did my best even if I had some problems with the “gang” at first........as my mum always say “just try your best and see what happens, you might surprise your self” So I did, really who wants to argue with a mum:)

is “Free at last; free at last; thank God Almighty we are free at last.”

The title will do the talking in this post, okay (since I reused an LO I did a while
back, but it is all about the same thing).

Oh happy day!!!!!!

The only thing that clouds my happy sky is that my dad is not here on with us to see this. But I know he and Grandma Obama are in charge of the party commission upstairs....I can see the clouds moving :)

...about us being crazy in love.....or are we just a crazy looking couple in love.....or a crazy couple in love(?).
The pictures of me and Bob aka Mr Moustache where taken by my lillsiss (I know, lilsis) while we where having dinner at mums house a while back. My lillsiss (I know, lilsis)took a lot of pictures of us and after every single click she said – let me just take one more....you both look a bit crazy in this one....

Then she showed us and was all like –whatyathink,amIright,crazylooking,yathink,crazyright? (she talks a bit to fast at times).

Anyhooooo I just loved this weeks combo (once again)!!! I wanted to use B/W pics and I decided to use the grey as my primary colour and use the sienna, chartreuse and straw for the embellishments and parts of the title. I used dark brow stickers for the “LOVE” in the title even if that colour isn’t in this weeks combo, I was all out of big grey stickers and I wanted to have the word prominent on the LO:) I tried to keep the design of the layout simple, with no visible journaling or doodling. I wanted to let the pictures do the talking. Hope it worked:) You can often spot crazy miles away, What am I on about......I am rambling.....once again......like I am “CRAZY in LOVE”:)
