Double huzzah!

If you send enough nagging thoughts out there, the universe will eventually listen…that’s right, we got snow!




Unfortunately, when I got up Sunday morning with big plans of building a snow dog in the yard, most of the snow had already disappeared…and now it’s raining like mad and there’s a flood warning. Aah, such is life in the Northwest. At least we had the perfect backdrop for putting up our tree :)

As for the second huzzah…on Saturday we opened Scrappedugnad, the first Norwegian challenge blog! The blog was originally the brainchild of Christine and Mari, and then they gave Ania and me an offer we couldn’t refuse! ;) We needed a good Norwegian name for the blog, so I jokingly suggested dugnad. The name stuck and it ended up being the perfect fit for a challenge blog; it was voted the Norwegian national word and means voluntary communal work :D

Our first guest challenger is Kerry Lynn Yeary, an amazing scrapbooker the four of us got to meet in Stavanger at Papirfest. Here’s my take on her challenge:


I melted the sides of the transparency so it curled up (you can’t really see it here; I had to take this photo after dark) – originally I had made a Christmas bow from the Hambly but it was humongous and caught fire when I tried to melt the edges (lol), so I had to go with something simple instead.

    Snø! Wow! Pyntet juletre! Wow og *dåne litt*.
    Huset deres ser kjempekoselig ut, i hvert fall inngangspartiet, og snø + kveldslys er jo ikke akkurat noe “ukoselig” da *fnis*
    Håper regnet gir seg og snøen kommer tilbake og da må du love og lage snow dog OG ta bilde av den lol.
    Klem, Monica

    What cool pictures! Your house is lovely. I wish I had been around my house when the snow was falling, but I was at my craft fair the entire weekend. Maybe next time.

    Your LO of Bobby is great! I really need to scrap more of Sedona. Hey, they should get together and play one of these days! Sedona may be big, but she’s very gentle with smaller dogs!!
