1st. September and a ScrapFIT workout.....

1st. September means the first day of autumn here in Denmark, it also means another new ScrapFIT workout is ready. The theme is Salt and Pepper.

# 51 -Salt & Pepper
It is time to show some Salt & Pepper on your layout or card! By this I mean Black & White as your main colors. You may use all ranges of Black & White and only 1 other color (in as many hues as you want). Do you like a little salt or are more of a pepper fan - let us see your tastes!

Here is my take on the Salt & Pepper workout.

Sunde muffins/healthy muffins

I added blue to the black and with and created a page with some healthy muffins. We are a cake-loving family, and my DH sometimes bakes muffins with less sugar and fatty substance, and with some kinds of coarse flour and mashed bananas. I must admit "real" muffins are better, but they really are okay ;-)


I think you should give this workout a try. The September winner will receive this special FITkit

I can't wait to see your entries over at ScrapFIT.

Be inspired by a book - London snapshots....

Do you want some fantastic inspiration? Over at ScrapFIT a new workout is ready, and I can assure you it is great :-D

Workout #50- Be Inspired By A Book!
I love books, especially kids books! They are great for little minds and they can also be great to spark your crafty creativity! Use the book cover below to inspire your next layout! Use the design of the cover, the color or the vintage vibe – be creative!

As I saw the book cover I thought: LONDON... I have to create a page with some old photos from London, I just love London :-D

Some of the embellishments are from a fabulous Jet Set kit bougt from The Make and Create Shop.

Sassy Lil Sketches and Four White Men

I have made my first layout for Sassy Lil Sketches. I have been so excited but today is the day :-D

I made this page with photos of the landmark of Esbjerg - the city I live in. The statue is called The Four White Men, they are sitting at the seaside welcomming those who come to Esbjerg by seaways. I remember once I came by ship from England some English tourists found it very, very funny the were sitting looking out over the sea. Well - at least they reached Esbjerg with a smile on their faces :-D

I used some old papers from Fancy Pants, I think they matches the colors in the photo very good.

I love banners and here you see how I attached the end of it

And now on to the sketch:

It is a great sketch and I really think you should give it a try and create a layout and upload it over at Sassy Lil Sketches. You could be the lucky winner of a prize generously sponsored by

Crafty sketches......

I am a few days late, but wouldn't you like to see the August 2011-Crafty sketch? Anyway here it is :-D

I have made the sketch, and I must admit it is the first sketch for me ever. I think a simple sketch gives a lot of ways for interpretation. Here is my own take on it.....

I created this layout from a vacation in France. Caesar is laying outside out caravan on a campsite.

I made this little arrangement in the left upper corner......

and here is another close-up.......

It would make me happy if you would like to play along over at Crafty Sketches :-D
