~~ Springtime! ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, March 26, 2007


Ahh...the sun is shining, the skies are blue and the air is chill and crisp with a hint of warmer seasons - oh yes - it's springtime!

At 04.50pm yesterday I decided that hmm, the picture and papers I had would make a good layout for the sketch-contest at papirhylla.no which ended at 6pm. Right. I just needed two more pictures - so I speedied up and edited two more pictures & started painting (spilled paint on my desk, papers AND pants! grr1!), cutting and sewing. As it was afternoon still Amalie kept bugging me but I *had* to finish this layout in time, so I bribed her with some chocolate...bad mommy bad!! (to my defense...I was stressed!! *blush*). At 5.35ish I finished the layout after 45minutes give or take - and started to scan it. Noticed that the title didn't seem right (why do I always notice such stuff AFTER I've scanned stuff?), and after a confirmation from a friend at MSN I decided to change the title - thank god that MM stickers are so easy to remove/reposition! Scanned and stressed even more and at 5.50pmish I finally mailed this layout. Two hours later I got a message that I won! Woho. Haha. (okok, there were only 6-7 other layouts in that contest so :p)

What I learned?
1. Don't suddenly decide to join a contest an hour before while the kids are awake.
2. Don't scrap a 12x12 layout if you actually decide to scrap the contest afterall. TAKES TOO FIGGIN' LONG TIME TO SCAN!

Anyways. My sis & niece. Yes. That's a santa-hat she's wearing. It was taken a few days before Christmas. :p I love these papers by the way. Melissa Frances and Creative Imaginations Narratives (and Fancy Pants). Yummy. So perfect for those tender moments.

Monday means a brand new Em challenge! Wohoo! This weeks prompt was "I believe..." Well. I believe that things will be fine eventually..but I've never said that out loud - I'm too afraid to jinx that!! Hope I didn't jinx myself bigtime when deciding to scrap it o.O

Ohwell. New week, new possibilities. Have a nice week y'all :)

Ok! Et godt tips; Ikke bestem dere for å bli med på en konkurranse en time før fristen går ut!! ("det er jo bare så deg" fikk jeg høre..men! jeg mener det! denne gangen så! :p).

Altså; klokka ti på fem igår kikket jeg litt på bildet og de to papirene jeg hadde funnet frem til bildet og tenkte...hmm....dette hadde kanskje passet litt til Papirhyllas skissekonkurranse....som jeg tidligere egentlig hadde forkasta fordi jeg ikke ble komfortabel med skissen (blush). Men. Joda. Trengte to bilder til, så hurtigredigerte to bilder i samme serie, skrev de ut, fant et tredje papir, klippet til, malte på bildene (hvit kant - malinga ble sølt utover bordet/buksa...hva gjorde jeg? Malte bildekantene rett fra bordet...istedetfor å tørke opp...*stress* *blush*), kjørte frem symaskinen mens malinga tørka, funderte på åssen i huleste jeg skulle få sirklene på skissa til å passe pent inn i LO'en, fant frem coasterne jeg hadde liggende fra Imagination Project, stemplet og fiksa tittel. Klokka fem over halv seks ca - etter 45 minutter - begynte jeg på scanninga - men fant ut at tittelen bare ble helt feil (den skurret....:p), sjekka med Gyda/Katta på msn og joda, burde nok ha en ny tittel, fikk hjelp til den og bytta på tittelen og scanna på nytt igjen (takk gud for at MM stickersene er så lette å fjerne/flytte på). Ti minutter før fristen ble mailen sendt inn.

To timer senere fikk jeg beskjed om at LO'en vant - wohoo!! Var "bare" 6-7 andre LO'er som kom til den konken, men allikevel. Heh.

Ellers: Mandag betyr ny ukesutfordring fra Emily; denne gangen skulle vi skrive noe om "I believe..." Vel. Egentlig tror jeg ting ordner seg....tilslutt. Jeg tør bare ikke si det. Langt mindre tenke det høyt. Ja. Jeg er vel litt overtroisk akkurat der - tenker jeg det for høyt eller "selvsikkert" så ødelegger jeg bare for meg selv, ting vil ikke ordne seg da just because. Så. Håper jeg ikke har ødelagt for meg bigtime nå da, ved å SCRAPPE tanken...!! *yikes* :)

Ha en riktig fin våruke!! :)

Ps. Nå skal jeg lage bursdagskort til kompisen til Adrian. Traff på ham igår da jeg skulle hente Adrian hos farmoren og han utbrøt med en gang; "Har du klippet håret ditt? Jeg synes du så skikkelig fin ut nå!". Aww bless! Seks år og så veloppdragen og storsjarmør allerede! ;) Tror kortet han skal få skal bli litt fint jeg *smile* - Adrian skal i bursdagsbesøk hos ham idag :p
(Og nei, jeg tror ikke han var beregnende..han er jo bare seks..og han gjorde store øyne og utbrøt det spontant med en gang han så meg med et stort smil. *fnis*)

    He, he...akkurat som å lese om meg selv Ania...ang deltagelsen i konkurransen altså. Jeg har også en tendens til "plutselig" rett før frister finne ut at..joda..jeg skal delta. Og som du skriver ender det ofte med litt ekstra tull.. ;O)
    Gratulerer med seieren forresten!!! Nydelig layout!!!!

    Gratulere med seieren.... :-)
    LO'en er kjempeflott, men jeg må flire litt av hvordan den ble til... Du er en mester til å snuse opp og delta i konkuranser...

    Tror ikke jeg hadde klart å bearbeide og printe u t bilder, scrappe en layout og scanne den inn på 1 time...., og i tilegg VINNE..... Du er virkelig noe for deg selv.... Dyktig er du.... :-)

    VERY COOL card! I LOVE it! I love the color combination, the polka dots with the swilrs and the killer way you wrote your belief around the circle in the center. Great job!
