Child Care Emergency Kit

Well here it is, a one of a kind kit, the Child Care Emergency Kit collaboration. Inspired by one of the wonderful Brownie Scraps girl's who is starting her own home daycare any day now. It was such a wonderful idea and fun to work with these vivid colors and to see them forming something so special with all those different parts from all of us.

Do follow the list of mini-blog hops below for the whole Child Care Emergency Kit.
Hope you enjoy it at least half as much as we enjoyed creating it!

Sneak peak

I was browsing Colourlovers and came across this eye catching color palette and instantly thought of a kit.
The kit will be called ... most likely .... Baby Doll and it will be ideal for a fun girlie night out.

Memory lane

I took a trip down memory lane today and was browsing through old photos and came accross this picture of hubby taken back in 1999 - gosh another century! And I just knew I'd need to scrap it. For this picture I used Felty Flowers by Jacabean Designs, and despite being all flowery I thought it would suit well for a guy since the colors were this dark.

Pictures taken back in 1998. LO made with Legacy Love by Jacabean Designs.

Next week there will be a lot to look forward to as the July Blog will be awailable as of July 1st here on my blog as well as the lists of all the other stops. And a collaboration kit will also be released around that time. Check back for updates.

My first CT LO

Being that I just have been accepted as Jacabean's CT member I might just as well dive into the deep end of the pool and create my very first CT LO. And I have to admit that I am quite happy with the outcome of the LO.

The model is my 12 month old daugther who had been having a blast playing out in the backyard and aparently got hungry since she decided to taste the awailable flowers!

The title reads "Flower girl"

I have been accepted to my first creative team (CT). I am extremely thrilled about that and am very excited about starting.

I am on the CT team for Jacabean Designs with four other fantastic girls whom I all happen to know. You can find their blogs in the links to the right under Jacabean Designs CT Team.

And yeah while it is still early - Happy Independance Day to all you fellow Icelanders out there.

Name that color

Evie (flutter buy faery) told me about a fun site today where you can put in the hex code for the color and it tells you what the name is.

Thanx Evie

Round 2

I am very happy to announce that I made it into rounde 2 at The Next Best Thing at Wasn't quite expecting to the second round - though one always does hope  - as there are some wonderful designers there that have thought me a lot and I admire and feel honored to actually get to take part in the same challenge as they do!

Congratulation and good luck to you all 2nd rounders at DSI

Today is the day

Today it will be announced who will advance to round 2 in The Next Best Thing. Therefore, I will be watching out the announcement around 12 pm EST or 4 pm GMT. And despite being sure I am not advancing there is still an itty bitty ray of hope that I actually might be one of the lucky ones.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed!

I felt it was time to recreate my logo since I never was too pleased with the first one!

Who am I? 
My name is Hildur and I am a 31 year old mother of two, a 5 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. I've been married to my best friend for 10 years. I work in special ed, where I mainly work with children on the autism spectrum. I love scrapping and use it as a way to get some me time. I am currently on 4 CT teams as well as a SMG at ScrapMatters. Here you'll find my LO's, as well as what is happening with my designers and ScrapMatters community. Once in a while I'll post a freebie or some challenge I am taking part in or hosting.
