Portraits Everyday

 Hello and lovely to see you my sweet blog friends!!
I am actually very happy that some of you still find your way here even though I rarely update this poor neglected blog. LOL!
I was hoping to update before Christmas Eve, but on top of arranging a family Christmas here at home I have had the flue since Dec 23 so things have been a little out of hand here. With the help of my lovely daughters though we managed to arrange a warm and cozy Christmas to the enjoyment of young and old. I hope the holidays were warm and precious for those of you that celebrate and that all the rest of you  can take part in the enjoyment of the 'cozyness' of the season! I am still not feeling well, I have a terrible cold and spend most of my time underneath a blanket on the couch. I won't even name some of the awful re-runs I have been watching on the telly!!
But I am slowly getting there!

This is my latest lo made for Les Papiers de Pandore. I have used the lovely collections "Little Winter Circus" and "Everyday Portraits". 
The two collections are of course quite different but the colours marry very well as you can see.

This sweet portrait  is one I took of Beatrice on our recent trip to Stockholm. We had  lovely time doing only what we felt like at the moment. Last time we went there we visited almost ALL the museums and sights,...(and I really mean ALL...) - so this time we just did a lot of shopping and eating. -Of course we had 'fika' with sweet Eila,too. This picture is a lucky shot while we were 
waiting for the bus to take us to the towncenter.

 Just look at all the yummy flowers here. I love flowers!(..surprise...LOL!)
They are a mixture of Prima and Manorhouse Creations.The yellow and pink largeish paperflowers came in my warehouse box from MHF a while back.

The butterflies are from my stash. Last Summer in Norway I borrowed my sisters Martha Stewart punch as I don't have this one myself. It is one of my favourites actually!

I prepared the background of my page with two different masks by Prima Marketing with gesso and two colours mists. The vines were cut using a Cheery Lynn die and the lace circle is made with a Spellbinders die.I added some glitter to the vines to give the lo a more festive feel.

Now I should really get off that couch and at least start a page,...there are deadlines to be met!!
I know that if I can just start I will not be able to put it away until  I finish!!

I wish you all the best!!
