ScrapEvent of Scandinavia

This weekend I´m going to Helsinborg in Sweden to participate in a big scrap Event. It take place on a hotel, but I will stay at my parent, who live 10 minutes away from the hotel.
I’m going to join 7 classes over the weekend.
A BaicGrey minialbum class, Daisy D class, Ki Memories class and a Karen Foster class…all classes with Swedish teachers.
I´m also join a Rusty Pickle class where the owner himself is going to teach us, a Bazzill class where Joey a previous scrapbook store owner is teaching and a QK class with Gary Chipman himself.
I have meet Gary Chipman before and he is just so funny.

I’m so excited and can’t wait.

I made it through to next round in the “Design like a star” contest at Scrapbooks Chalet. I made this layout to chalenge #3 which is a scraplift challenge. We are going to scraplift a layout made by my good cuber friend Jeanne.

The title and the flowers are draw by hand , colored with watercolours pencil, then cut out and put together with foam tape to create dimension

The journaling is a poem my friend Anette aka Netti wrote to me in my CJ about friendship. It´s very difficult to translate the rhymes....but it goes something like this:

My best friend, which I call scrap nuts
You easily loose your breath and get dizzy
She lives on a island with a lot of people
(when she came here I almost had to use a translator)
Once a year we visit each other
We scrap, talk a lot and laugh
She is always ready with a shoulder and a ear
And tell you what to do
Once a week we whit the keyboard talks
Tell each other about our scrap troubles.
She is a wonderful person, so delightful and fine
I glad she a friend of mine
Her name, can you guess it
Yes she is Lisette.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hej Lisette.
Jeg håber og ved at du vil få en fantastisk weekend. Vi må ikke håbe at de svenske lærer bruger for mange tal LOL.

Jeg er Så misundelig over at du skal afsted men på den anden side også glad for at jeg ikke skal da jeg har haft alt for travlt på det sidste.
Rigtig god weekend - jeg glæder mig til at høre om den.

Hilsen
Anette
