Sweet as an apple !

Here is the original picture of my daughter and her friends in our hot tub:

Umbrella kiss

Me and my husband at our wedding day, 27.sept 2003. Yes, it rained and was very windy but one of the best days of my life !! The door behind us is actually the door to the little church we got married in, Búðakirkja.

Located at the magnificent Snæfellsnes in Iceland, with the glacier in the background !

This LO was mostly done with the wonderful new kit by Milla design, Summer Jam. This picture of Matthildur was taken when she was 14 months old and was reading a train book, tuu tuu !

My little fairy looking to the sky. It looks like she is deep in the forrest but she is actually in our backyard with only few trees behind her.
