OK, so water melons isn't your thing...

...how about this one then? This week we want you to share a scrapbook page with a stamp on it over at For Fun Challenges We want to see fun events may be a visit to the beach, a picnic in the park etc. We are sponsored by the lovely Wee stamps this week and there is so many cute images for girls especially.

Well, since I got to boys I went a little different with my LO, (and I don't want to have their pictures on the net). I guess most people are scrapping summer, sand and beaches by now. Myself? I can't wait for the winter to come and the last one was a great one when it came to snow, so that is what my page is about. Snow! I love snow, it keeps me relaxed and I feel warm and cozy too. Do I have to ad that I really love Christmas as well? Living by the coast we don't get much of the white stuff normally but last winter was both long and white. It started already 28th of November and didn't leave until the end of March, beginning of April.

I have kept my page very simple, just as I normally do. Yes, I do my pages every now and then but I don't want my kids pictures up on the net so I never show them. I love the clean simple look with straight lines and I adore all people who can put tons of stuff on their pages without it looking cluttered. I have not mastered that art yet. This was new to me, to use a stamp and especially a digital one on my page but I love how it brought life to a very dull and dark photo. This will be done more than this time that's for sure. My DP are from Dovecraft, the letters from Sassafrasslass if I'm correct and the picture is taken from my office window. Some lace is used to ground the photo and give some dimension to the LO as well.

Oh well, I better keep quiet now and let you all get back to your crafting space. I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge. Give it a try! It doesn't have to be a big page, just a little one.

Love n hugs

I with you on simple clean lines too! And this was my first time using a stamp on a scrap page but not my last. I totally relate to your post and your page. Great page by the way and love how you did the title.

Himlans snyggt Marie!
Kul utmaning, blir sugen på att testa - har ju aldrig gjort nån riktig LO.
Det är bara det där lilla kruxet med TIDEN..:/ Fattar inte vart dagarna tar vägen!?
Blir väl lite lugnare nu när resten av familjen är iväg om dagarna.
Hoppas du får en bra dag idag!
