My name is Ann-Christin, but most of my scrapping friends just call me Lula:) Norway is my home, born, raised, found love, got married, had two kids and are HAPPY! 
When I first started scrapping back in 2007, I almost just did kraft. And then I found this cool blog and you have so many different challenges! 

I love how the kraft brings out the colors and the pictures at the same time. 

When I got the December challenge, the title just pop up in my head. 
It was the song "All I want for christmas is YOU!" Me and my husband has been married for 11 years, and I think its important to maintain the magic and the romance in a relationship!

Lula's Blog:


I´m Maja from Sweden. Mum to 5 wonderfrul kids, wife, teacher, "horsegirl" and addicted to scrapbooking. I found this wonderful world of papers in 2008 when I was home with my youngest son.

I have always been creative in some way  but with scrapbooking I can combine several of my interests. I love to sew, take photos, play with colours, patterns and flowers. 

I don´t have any significant style. I go with the flow, where the creativity leads me! I love to make all from CS pages to layerd pages with lots of everything ;)

Maja's Blog:


Heading towards Christmas, I would like to see a layout about what YOU want for Christmas.  Now this doesnt necessarily mean presents, it could mean want you want to experience with your family or where you might like to go etc...

* When you are loading your entries this month please remember to put your country as well as your name, you have until 11.59pm December 31st to link your entry.
