The other weekend I was in Stockholm, an event called Stcokholm Scrap Class.
One of the classes I took was Finnabairs - Daydreamer class and I loved it!

And here´s my Daydreamer canvas..


A very short post this time..

Enjoy

Hi! 
 It has been so quiet here lately, sorry about that!
It is so hard to take good photos here these days, when it´s so dark.
Oh how I miss the daylight!

Anyway, here´s a layout I´ve created last week.
I made this just for fun. 
Beautiful papers are from Epiphany collection by Prima. 
Also I´ve used few Prima stamps for the background and if you look very closely you can see some Prima mask used together with modeling paste. 
Mists that I´ve used are Dylusions and Heidi Swapp.



Thank you for looking!

Hi everyone,
it´s time for a new mood board and a new challenge at Scrap Around the World


 Here you can see the gorgeous mood board!
I love those vintage colours and elements - so fun to play with!

Here´s my layout..


I was inspired by the photo at the upper right corner, all the beautiful flowers with great colours.

I´ve used beautiful papers from 7 Dots, lots of Prima flowers and embellishments. Also I´ve used some laces from my stash.
