My nephew had his confirmation, and hubbys granddad celebrated his 85th bday. In other words, the weekend was filled with lots and lots of (way too) great food ;)
I had to work some – that is, creating cards and stuff for these celebrations – but am only able to share this one now though, as the two others are part of future tutorials. I have to say I love this paper from 3ndypapir – totally perfect for youths. It’s so colorful and funky, so it’s not really “necessary” to add a lot to it – just add a label (I used Kitschy Digitals’ Kawaii labels – this card was for mother-in-law who gave him a full fruitbasket) and you’re pretty much done. Letters from Fancy Pants Designs.
Here’s the inside – I made room for a giftcard plus a pad to write on. I sort of felt bad for the card being so simple (but really, it didn’t need much more methinks), so I sewed on the journalpad and punched funky edges w/my fiskars edgepuncher. And notice the cute button? It’s from Pink Paislee – had to use something to keep the giftcard in the card. The lined paper is from Crate Paper by the way.
Speaking of mother in law, she made a 60 metre long song for the celebration of the confirmed. It started on one end and ended on another – namely where Amalie sat. All the guests were to sing the part that came along the paper – while it was moving around. It was pretty amusing and actually worked out well :)And for the celebration of the granddad, he brought all of us to the VilVite-senteret, a very popular interactive science centre where people can experiment scientific stuff themselves for a day of knowledge activities and food at their restaurant by the end of the stay. And uh, here’s the restroom – I’m sorry but I just HAD to snap a picture or two inside there – look at the bright, funky doors! Amalie was thrilled and picked the pink one (ahwell :p).
Here’s me cycling this bike around the circle :p (it’s very funny until you’re stopped mid-air hanging upside down for a sec :p). They film you too, you know, your face while you’re biking – I opted to say “no thank you” to having the movie of myself downloadable on the web :p (to enter this centre we get our personal cards we’re able to swipe at the different attractions, to be able to access our own data later on the web)
And here’s the kids and their cousin experiencing various grades of windstrengths.
Wrapping this post with a layout I made for Crate Paper, using their School Spirit-papers and some Hambly Screenprint-rubons. I’ve noticed I like to try put down some thoughts and reflections on layouts lately..like, instead of using an art journal I guess. Whatever works for me, I guess.
Oh, almost forgot. A street art piece from the University-area. Do you find it peculiar? I’ve written down my thoughts about this one on my other (Norwegian) blog. The artist is N-Joy (thanks Eli, wasn’t entirely sure how it was signed – could just make out the word “joy” with something in front :p).
