GDT for Cute Card Thursday

This week Rick is sponsoring a challenge at Cute Card Thursday and I have made a GDT project for that challenge, using the Ballerina Princess Bear rubber stamp. The image is coloured with distress markers and lots and lots of glitter glue. I adore this stamp, and it is even possible to get as a set with six different - but equally cute - bears so that you can make correlating projects. The set is called Bears set #1

Scrap och Ting - syskrin

Hejsan
dags igen att blogga för Scrap och Ting och jag har idag gjort ett syskrin. Mallen till det köpte jag här.

Jag använde de fantastiska papperen från Maja Design, rosor och några brads. Bradsen hade fel färg men det gjorde inget för jag tryckte dem mot en embossingdyna och doppade sedan i embossingpulver så hade jag löst det problemet :)

Som grund för skrinet använde jag vit cardstock, bra och stabilt papper att arbeta med.

Blogging today for Scrap och Ting and I made a sewing kit box kinda thingy :). Template on link above.

The silver linings of teaching!

Today we had presentations about USA in class 8B and what a wonderful experience that was!
Well prepared students with interesting topics and the fluncy in this group is amazing!!! On a scale from 1-5 I rated all students 4 or 5. A sheer joy to enjoy and today I'm a very, very proud old teacher.

And one can only bow to the geniousness of serving the audience marshmallows-covered cupcakes to represent the junk-food consumption of Florida...

Allsorts - make a gift

Morning,
today is a scheduled post since I'm at chorus practise with Snowflakes the entire weekend, the Christmas concert is just around the corner and it's going to be amazing!

So, for Allsorts this week the challenge is to make a gift, very suitable this time of the year :) I made a gift box with tea lights, a match box and a tag, cause all the lights is what I love most about the winter (well, that and Christmas is basically the only thing I like about winter, and don't say it - I know I've chosen the most illfitting place in the world to live, I have no defense...)

Anyhow, we are sponsored by Passion for stamps and the Craft barn so hop on over to our challenge blog to join the fun!

SFTW - Fall colours

I'm hosting the current challenge at Stampin for the Weekend and the theme is Fall colours. And since there are so many warm and wonderful colours in the fall, it should be pleasant to hop around and check out the contributions!
I made a bottle tag with home-made roses, punched edge, distressed music sheet and a tag with an image from our sponsor Bugaboo.
The tag has already been given to a wonderful friend, but not blogged until now :).
