Hey there! Are you ready for some PL pages?

Hey peeps! If you could hear me now it would´t sound nice - I promise! Constantly coughing and sneezing, but I promised you an update so here it is.

Last Sunday I was at a little scrapbook meeting with friends and I actually got some done for a change! It was such a good feeling since I felt so uninspired for a while but hopefully I´m back on track again.



For once I had more things to add to a week so I got to use my inserts:





I can honestly say I don´t keep track on where everything I used came from, but here are some of it:
  • 5th and frolic Core kit - BH/Dear Lizzy
  • Plus one mini kit - Amy Tangerine/BH
  • Strawberry Core kit - BH
  • Dymo label maker
  • Stickers from Me & My Big Ideas
  • Embies from Heidi Swapp, Pink Paislee, Studio Calico, SimpleStories and some more...
I don´t think I´m finished with my last page though. It needs som things added to get some more life in it. 

Now I only hope that I can recover so much so I can attend the fun "Falköpings Scrapmara" which is a BIG scrap event around here. I´m so thankful for meds, tissues and cough drops (and some nice whisky in the evening).....

That´s it for now! Take care <3 div="">

Hoping to be back tomorrow with some Pocket Scrapbooking posting.
Take care

Thank you Pinterest!

Like many others I like to hang out on Pinterest and pinning all kind of stuff. One of my boards is about photography which I wish I could do really good one day.

The other day I stumble across a pin about another happy amateur who used mainly three lenses (one of them was the kit lens) and I realized I actually had one of them that she spoke warmly about - a 50mm 1:1.8D lens. So instead of just pinning for later I went ahead and grabbed my real camera- a read Nikon D3200 - and mounted the lens on it and just fired away!
I had forgotten how much fun it is to shoot with a real camera and not just only with your phone...

Here are some of my practicing results:











This lens is called a Portrait lens but as you can see it works excellent for all kinds of stuff!
Since this is a prime lens you can´t zoom with it but on the other hand the low F-number means the aperture is bigger = it lets in a lot of light so it get great pictures under darker conditions without a flash!
 If you´re into photography I can highly recommend it! You can find similar lenses for all larger camera brands.

So right now I´m hoping for better weather here. The last days have been really raining and today we actually got SNOW! Yikes!

Have it great!

Yay! I got my stamps!

This Friday I got my stamps that I´ve ordered from Stampotique and I´m over the moon about them!
Here are all of them:


I was really eager to play with them so I took out my water colors and got to work. Here they are - all finished and ready to be added to a project:


I gotta confess and say that two of the images have already been made into cards, but I can´t put them here before next week since I made them for my blog day over at Pysseldags.
