My agenda...

...is increasingly stuffed!

Luckily, I still have soooome time (and mojo) for scrapping!
The following LO is actually one of my own recent faves. The photos were snapped by DH, and have been edited slightly by me. They're taken in Skåne, and specifically at Mossbystrand beach. Beautiful, and so super Swedish, it makes my breath sorta stumble.

I love this country.
I love the firs, the twinflowers, the otters and all the winding stone walls of Småland; the green expanses of Värmland; the pulse, all the whispers of history and the plentyful of oasises in Stockholm; the southern tempo, the adorable dialect, my beloved inlaw-relatives, the rolling rapeseed-yellow landscape and the blossoming apple trees of Skåne; Öland's rough juniperhills and it's amazing fairytale forests, seemingly lost camels and ostriches plus their bugridden meadows...

(Not saying that I'm not crushing on Greece, France, Germany... But that's another story.)

Yep, no matter which way you face it - I don't think there's another country in this entire world where I'd rather have been born, than up here, in North of the world.
Thus; this layout, that can be (and is meant) as a declaration of love.

Sweden: I ♥ U!

Materials used:
Bazzill, patterned paper from Pink Paislee (365º Degrees), flowers & bling from Petaloo's Flora Doodles Paper n Glitter, sequins from Petaloo, thickers-alpha, home made mini alpha, staplers plus Crackle Accents
