In August we visited the beautiful little island Fanoe. Walking around looking at the idyllic houses I saw this little apple tree. I think it was a quite new one and it had its very first apples. The woman who lives in the house is called Jytte, and she has put a plate made of wood on the fenche saying: Jytte's æbler (in Danish) - meaning that the apples belongs to Jytte.
I already had bought the Apple Cider papers from Imaginisce before we went to Fanoe, so as I saw this little apple tree I had to take a picture for the papers ;-D
It is 1st. of December which means it is Christmas, but is also means reveal of another Stuck?! sketch. As usual Sara has created a great sketch.
Last Christmas we visited the Christmas market at a mannor called Sønderskov Slot and I took some pictures of the beautiful christmastree. I decided to use one of the pictures on my interpretation of the Stuck?! sketch.

Aren't you curious to see all the fantastic layouts my Stuck?! colleaques have created? Jump over at Stuck?! Sketches and take a look.... ;-D
Inspired of some of my Stuck?! CT-colleagues I made an entry for WW1. Even if I find yellow a rather difficult color when it comes to scrapping, I am quite satisfied with the result. I like the clean look.
Caesar loves his balls, esecially the yellow one.
I made some stitching and punched out a lot of circles and a couple of butterflies
and cut out the tree.
I also used some dew drops, foam letters, buttons, brads and flowers as well as a dark yellow and black pen.
I had a lot of fun making this layout, so I don't think this is the last time I have made an entry for WW1.
Are you aware that Tidbitz In Time is having a sale on Friday, Saturday and Sunday? Each kit available will be 50% off, if coupon code Thank50 is entered upon checkout. The kits really are recommendable so why not give it a try?
I would like to share one more layout I have made with the fabulous November Tidbitz In Time kit with you.
The photos are from our visit in Ribe Vikingecenter this summer. The three musicians are playing and singing the very special Wiking music for the Danish Queen who payed the Centre a visit that day. As I saw their outfits I just had to shoot some photos for a layout, and I found the October Afternoon papers from the november kit was a perfect match.
I am so happy to be one of the guestdesigners at the fabulous Tidbitz In Time november kit, and one of the terms was to combine the kit with the two November Stuck?! Sketches, and I really found that a perfect match :-D
The 15.th November Stuck?! Sketch
This summer we visited The Japanese Garden in Aarhus, of course we took a lot of photos and I found this one of the waterlilies was great with the October Afternoon papers from the Tidbitz kit
- and here is the result ;-D
I just love the little chipboard butterflies from the kit. I misted them and put on some Liquid Pearls.
Right now I am preparing the next project, - I found the challengeblog WW1 - a blog which I didn't knew before, so I decided to give the white/yellow challenge a try.
In the fabulous Tidbitz In Time november kit there was this London citymap patterned paper from October Afternoon, and once I saw it I knew how to use it.
I dug out some old photos from a trip to London some years ago. Actually is was the first trip my husband and I took without our children. Strange feeling they were old and sensible enough to stay at home alone ;-)
I only used cardstock and pens of my own, all the rest are from the Tidbitz In Time kit - I really recommed the kit, so hurry up if you want to purchase one while it is still available.
We have spent the last days in our summerhouse, so it has been totally relaxation.
No trip to the summerhouse without my scraptrolley, so I have been working at the December Stuck?! Sketches, - as usual Sara has made som great sketches.
Anyway, I want to share one more layout I made from the Tidbitz In Time November kit with you.
Claus and a very kind Bedouin
I made this layout from our vacation in Tunesia many years ago. Here you see Claus on a very early morning - so early that it was still dark, ready to ride off into the desert. He thought it was SO COOL that he should ride on "his own" camel. I am going to create more layout from out camel trip in Sahara, - so now you are warned ;-D
I have had the great opportunity to work with the FABULOUS Tidbitz In Time november kit, and I love it, October Afternoon is one of my favorite paperlines, so it could not be much better :-D
What do you think? Isn't it great? I really can recommend the kits from Tidbitz In Time .
Of course I used the kit for the 1. November Stuck?! Sketch, and here is the result.
I only have very few photos of my fantastic parents and I just love this photo of my mother when she was young. I think the materials are perfect for the picture, so as soon as I saw the papers there were no doubt in my mind , I just had to make this layout :-D
I love the button from Jenni Bowlin and the flowers from ZVA
This time my 15th. October layout for Stuck?! Sketches was 8,5 x 11. It was the first time for me creating layout which was not 12 x 12, it was so fun trying that, but I really could use some more space :-D anyway here is what came out of it.
My son, Claus, is a playing the bass guitar in a rockband in his sparetime. Sometimes he is writing songs for the band, and he wrote this song - a beautiful rock-ballad - for his Grandma 4 years after she died. I must say that I was very touched as I heard the song for the first time. Do I need to tell that Claus and his Grandma had a very special bond?!
And here you have the 15th. October Stuck?! Sketch, why not jump over and check out the great takes from the DT-members?
It's the 1. of October and it's time for showing another one of Sara's great Stuck?! sketches.
This year I'm making monthly layouts and I used the sketch for the May layout. Well, It's late for a layout from May, but better late than never ;-D
Actually I wanted to ad some journaling, but I wasn't satisfied with the way it turned out, so I chose to make some journaling on the back of the layout.
Here in Denmark we are celebrating Mother's day on the second Sunday in May. I love stars, and this year I got this leather necklace with a star charm made of gold, and I looove it :-D
The second photos shows the cake we got at the International Scrapbooking day Crop. It's called a Brunsviger cake, and is a speciality from the part of Denmark where the shop Multiscrap is. We went to Iben's shop for a 12-hours crop, and had a great day.

I really can recommend the 1. of October Stuck?! Sketch, so I think you should give it a try :-D
I'll be off for the 11th Danish Scrapbooking Convention, 300 Danish and German scrapbookers as well as 10 Danish scrapshops....WEAHHH... I'll be back on the blog with photos in a couple of days ...
My DH on the back of a camel in the fringe of the Sahara Desert
I made this layout during the birthday celebrations over at Stuck?! sketches , I used bonus sketch # 2 but I didn't manage the deadline ;-D Anyway I want to show you the layout from a FANTASTIC camel-trip out in the Sahara desert many years ago. We rode out into the desert on a very, very early and totally dark morning to see the sunrise in Sahara. I just can say WAUW what an experience, - one of the greatest in my life - so far :-D
A little close-up
Later I'm going to create more layouts from the camel-trip, so now you are warned
It is a great sketch to work with, and I used it for this layout.
30 km from where we live you find Ribe Vikingcentre. My DH find the life of the vikings very interesting, so this summer we visited the centre. One of the attractions at the centre is the falconers on the photos.
I didn't want the layout to be too feminine with a lot of flowers and so on, so instead I made these 3 felties.
I cut out the falconers from the photos and attatched them on a couple of tags made of corrugate. Bird and branch is a StampinUp punch.
On our way to Ribe Vikingcentre we wondered why there were so many police on the roads, and the closer we came to the vikingcentre the more police. When we reached our destination we found out why.
The first thing we saw outside the centre was this car - and even more police,then we realized that a very famous woman had got the same idea as us. The car is called Crown 1 and belongs to the Queen of Denmark ;-D
This was a big surprise, and of course we took a lot of photos. She was just walking among tourists, the staff from the centre, policemen, horses, people dressed like vikings and geese ;-D
- and here you see her majesty the Queen of Denmark
The royal family - especially our fantastic crown prinsess Mary (from Tasmania) - is very, very popular, so it was quite an experience to get that close to the Queen and her husband Prins Henrik.
The sketch is great and so easy to work with, so why not give it at try?
Here is my take on the sketch.
Here is a close-up, - have you noticed the little bag of spices ? ;-D
I have made a travel layout from Tunesia. I love the special Tunesian spices and a younger and slimmer me ;-D has just bought a lot of delicious spices from this little funny spiceseller. As soon as he saw my DH was going to take some photos he turned around and gave me a big hug. I'm not sure wheater he was happy for selling a lot of spices or a funny kind of actor, actually I just think he was a wonderful, kind person making fun. I just love this photo. I have the feeling of smelling the spices when I look at it ;-D
Materials: I used papers from the BasicGrey line Marocco, letters from the same line and thickers (Honey), journaling spot from Fancy Pants, flowers from Prima, the butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch, Zig Writer - blue, twine for the stitched border, beads, buttons and a brad from a local craft store.
Are you enjoying the lovely Sunday? I am :-D Right now I'm visiting a little idyllic island called Fanø, and the weather is fantastic, almost too good to be working at a computer, but I'm sure you know how it is when you love to scrap.... LOL
Well, it is the 15th of August and it is time for showing my Stuck?! sketch layout. I love the sketch, and it was so easy to work with :-D
I used the sketch for a travel layout from France. The photo is from Eguisheim in Elsass, France, and the corner is the most photographed place in the little village. Eguisheim is the most wonderful place in the northeastern part of France, and I just love it. I'm sure I will go back there some day :-D
I used a Danish paper line Pink Vintage from Riddersholm design. I really think you should check out the beautiful papers Connie designs.
