DOC: So this is christmas...

Hi there friends and followers! 

Firstly I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you whom still visits and even takes the time to send me some words. I really appreciate it! Im soooooo sorry I dont seem to get the time to visit you back, pls know I REALLY want to! Hopefully I will learn a little time management and get to be a pro at doing all the things I want although Im a mother of two. I cant wait til the new wall is finally up in our house, that will mean Ella gets her own room and I will be able to create and do my bloghoping during the evenings again. Ella sleeps in our bedroom atm and that increases my alone time - a lot ;) So cross your fingers it will be ready soon! 


Already time for me to tell you all about the new fortnightly challenge with us over at Deep Ocean. Its a very nice and easy one me thinks - at least this time of year ;) The theme is "So this is christmas". Create like anything christmassy and youre in! YAY! 
     Now, let me tell you a little about my contribution. I bought a silhouette Cameo back in june and it arrived from the Netherlands in july. I had just given birth then so it wasnt really good time to learn something new. In august I finally plugged it in and gave it a try and Im NOT kidding you! I could get it to work for me! I tried everything, followed the instructions to the dot (or at least I though ;)) and I tried it over and over and after some time I gave up thinking it must be broken??? Im a member of a little swedish scrapbooking society, we get together every once in a while to create and I noticed another member had written about her silhouette. Great I though and asked her to show me how she manages hers when the next meeting was. She said yes and Im so thankful! I brought everything and dearest Petra helped me out! Im still on a learning curve of course but I have gone from HATING it to really LOVING it in like 30 minutes! The reason Im telling you all this is I cut the shape of this card on the silhouette! Its gorge, isnt it? ;) 
     Tilda is colored with di´s on 300 g watercolor paper and she was released as a part of the A Christmas story collection. She is so cute :) The grey dp is from Magnolia and the blue one is from Prima. The sentiment is part of a lovely little set I bought from Mikaelas Scrap in. Its from Amy R stamps. Never heard of them before but my Im in love with them too ;) 

Now, before you head off, pls take a little friendly advice and head on over to the Deep Ocean Challenge blog and take a look at all the beautiful creations made by my teamies, the are truly STUNNING!! We would love to see you join us. 

Have a great evening and hopefully I will see you soon! 
Love, Louise
