My dream, my love


There is something about CSI and the casefile I just love, it always inspires me so much....



And this case is no exception...
My testemony is to use a item from the scene as inspiration, and the bunny was such a sassy childish bunny,
so I wanted to use a picture of my oldest, soon to be 13 (!!) lovely daughter.
You can see a bunny on my rainbow...

My evidence: rainbow, clouds, animal,arrows, enamel dots and die cuts
 Hjerteknuser is heartbreaker. Just look at here, a real cutiepie...

 She was my dream, and my boys is a bonus-dream..
I was  told by my gynecologist that I never would be able to have kids, I have PCOS , and infertility is one of the symptoms.

I think I always wanted to be a mum, I played with dolls, I loved to be a babysitter, I think I was 7 when I got to push the stroller with my newborn nighbor, I was so proud...

So to be told that I never would be able to have kids, it was tought.
When my friends told me they where pregnant, I was happy for them, I really was, but when alone I cryed my heart out. I was never me...

But...

7 years after the doctor told me that I would never get pregnant.....
I found myself in my bathroom with a stick with to lines on it...

How bout that!?!!
I was so happy and scared, and over the moon by this, FINALLY, it was my time...

I had been a mum for so many years in my heart, and now I was going to be a mum for real...

And that feeling... I wanted to hold on to it for ever. I want to document everything, even today, 13 years later I'm still there... And my kids now, if we dont have a picture of it, it did'nt happend.. hihi...

So I went to a photographer in all my 3 pregnancies, when the babies was 3-4 months old and when they where one year...

This is a picture of June when she was 1 <3 nbsp="" p="">


 I have been superlucky to beat the doctors outlook, and I now have 3 kids.
My new doctor  ones said that I had to send my old doctor a postcard with a picture of my kids and write: you where wrong.. hihi...

So.... I dont think you came over to my blog for all that, and if you didnt read the hole thing (I dont blame you ;) ) I hope you did like my take on case 224.
Have a great day

Enchanted rose

Im so excited to see the new  Beauty and the beast movie ... Emma Watson as Belle, oh wow.. I think she will make a perfect Belle..

You can see the trailer here:

And in the story you have the rose, the enchanted rose, I have always loved that rose, so beautiful but also so sad...
With the petals falling down...

So when I joined the #Beourguest collaboration I knew I had to make a rose...

I made it with foamiran (mosegummi in Norwegian)
The rose is made of:
7 petals 1.3/8 x 1.3/8 inch
5 petals 1. 5/8 x 1.5/8 inch
5  petals in glitter foamiran: 1.7/8 x 1.7/8 inch

With some fallen petals...


You find my video on how to make the rose here:

 I used some christmas-lights thats run on battery on the rose, so it has that magical enchanted glow..

The last layer of petals i used glitter-foamiran, and the some of the leafs is in glitter-foamiran...
 In life, the string from the rose is not visible...

I used:
Red foamiran
Green foamiran
Glitter foamiran
Brown bast
Tim Holtz distress crayons
Tattered angels Dazzling diamonds
Paper straw
Christmas-light
A glass vase (for you in Norway; form Nille)
A candlelight-tray (Nille)

Hope you liked my rose, and my video.
Dont forget to see all the fantastic things the other artists in this collab made, you find the playlist here: Playlist on youtube

Live life Dude

Case 223 over at CSI is a fun bright case, with MONSTERS, you know me.. I love monsters...


My take, is with my youngest little monster...
We had to go  buy dinner, and the weather was grey and sad..

And like magic, the sun came, you can see the sky is realy grey and heavy, but the sun came, and Lars just had to go back to the car and get his sunglasses.

So there we where, on the parkinglot, looking at the cold january sun together...
well, I have to tell it as it is; Lars was watching the sun, I was totally mamaratzzi...

My evidens is clouds, monsters,transparent stuff, distressing and fabric.
My testemony is the inspiration word outside


My background is made by a lot of  stamps...
And different colors stamppads..



 All the stamps is Papirdesign, exept the bubble one, who I made with my stamp machin.
I have used glimmermist and red burlap from Canvas Corp.
The monster is a puffy sticker I got at HobbyKunst

If you like to see how I made this page, I have a video here:
(And if you liked my video, I hope you will support me by likeing my video, and subscribe to my channel)

Have a great day
