It`s Bellaidea today but we will focus on our fanatstic GD this week, Eila Sandberg. I am very proud to call her my friend and admire her style for a long time!
Firstly, thank you so much for having me as GDT! It is such an honour and pleasure!
My name is Eila Sandberg. My hometown is Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, where I live with my small family; my husband and our 3 cats – Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter.
I love papers and flowers, cannot scrap without them! My pages are all lumpy and bumpy with lots of layers and quite often with lots of texture and plenty of little detail as well. I am a very slow scrapper as I fiddle for ages before I stick down my embellies. My pages also always have a story to them and I have to put my journaling at the back as I get rather lengthy in my ramblings.
My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful. London is my favourite city in the whole world.
I devour English crime novels and love BBC TV series and milk chocolate. Saturday evenings when Downton Abbey is aired and Wednesdays when I get to meet the handsome Mr Jane in The Mentalist, are sacred! If I don't get a big mug of coffee with milk in the morning I get very cranky.
I have the privilege of being a DT member of the Australian challenge site Once Upon A … Sketch(OUAS), as well as of CSI Color..Stories..Inspiration(CSI) and Blue Fern Studios in the US. I am also a re-visiting Guest Designer at the Australian challenge site Meg’s Garden.
I have been DT of Australian The Color Room, GDT of French Les Papers de Pandore, American Berry71Bleu, Polish firstname.lastname@example.org and Studio75.pl, South African Scrap for Help and Malaysian Scrap-it-Lah.
