Summer memories!

Good morning! It feels so good to be back! Thank you so very much for all the sweet comments on the cards I posted yesterday! Christmas card maiking is just around the corner so you'll soon see more cards and Swedish stamps in the blog! Stay tuned!
Today I'm sharing three layouts that I made during my four days off from work, on my lovely scrapbooking retreat - at home! I've had "problems" falling into "the pit of monocolor" lately so when I made these layouts I concentrated on using atleast two colors and I think I did really well for once!
First is a layout with a family selfie, I think it is really funny! I love the cut outs I used, they are from a sheet of patterend paper from Teresa Collins.
Next is a beach layout with sand between my toes! Can northern Sweden really be like this?!? At the moment it feels almost surreal! I had been longing to use these products with these photos and it was so much fun. I have never used a frame like that before and I like it alot. I was a bit surprised that these chipboards were sooo thick! That wasn't necessary, in my opinion.
My hubby laughs at me when I buy or save empty glass jars. I love them and he knows it. I use them all around the house for various storage, especially in the pantry. When I first saw the paper with the jars I felt they had made it just for me! And hubby got to laugh some more. He can do that, he loves me the way I am. The title for this layout is "Books are candy for fantasy" and the photo is taken one afternoon when I had been to the library borrowing books for the kids. They flipped through all of them before dinner and I had to document it with the camera.
Yeah, it is me! But it is not monocolor! I can do it! I love it!
Have a wonderful day! Hugs!
