About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

~~ Thank You Telehor ~~

My jack of Gen's layout for ScrapJack

The whine
Gaah!
Two nights ago we lost our connection to the net. As that happened around midnight I figured that was a cue for me to go to bed and didn't think much about it - I was sure the connection would be back & running the next day. And sure enough - the net was back again the next morning - just in an altered state. A much much much slower state. The 0.5kb/sec kind of state. Joy! I might tend to be a lil nostalgic every now and then but I do not really want to actually go back to the days of the 2400baud modems (my very first modem!) and stuff (neither 14.4 nor 28.8 and stuff).
Anyhoo.....calling Telehor they confirmed that indeed, there was something wrong with our connection and yeah, they would fix that within monday evening, true story and all. Now, they might fix the connection any time now but considering it's Telehor I somehow have my doubts and eek the thought of enduring browsing and stuff with this kind of connection all through the weekend is...scary!! o.O

Ohwell. I'm still pretty addicted forcing myself to browse around multitasking (I can't help it! Need at least 4 diff. tabs up and running in Firefox!) yawning growing tired of waiting for anything between 10seconds to 20 minutes for a page to load. *sigh*

Look what I got!
Anyways! Over to funnier stuff!!
Today was a GREAT mailday! No, I didn't get anything new in the mail really - no big parcels or anything -- but I got this gorgeous, most amazing card from Kine!!! Oh. My. Gosh. Kine, you really really made my day!! I won a pair of beautiful lace-angels from her blog the other day, and she sent them along with this amazing card and a number of large flowers attached! *huge hugs* - you sure have mad cardmaking skillz (along with being an amazing scrapper) - no doubt why Magnolia snatched you to their DT-team!! The card is sitting on my shelf right above my corner so I can watch it all the time & soak in the details. Jeez. I mean, just check out the glitter crown and wings.. the cute little rubonbird on the swirl...I could go on and on and on.... :)

The layout
The flowers in her mail inspired me aswell to add flowers as the last touch to this layout for the DareJack #3 - jacking Gen (the big, yellow flower behind the happiness card was from her too). Her use of small pictures inspired me to make this photobroder last night cause I coudln't find anything on the net (that I didn't have to pay for :P And with my slow-ass connection I coudln't bother search for long). Just let me know if you'd like this photoborder for yourself, I made it in .psd so it's available for those w/photoshop at least.

Don't forget!
Today's the first Patrol Day at Bad Girls! If we catch you using our blinkie on the net (2peas, WillowTrade, scrapbook.com etc & even your own blog) - you might very well be the winner of our RAK :)

Gaaah!! Telehor altså! Linjehastigheten vår har droppet ned til 0.5kb/sec - joy joy! Telehor lovet at dette skulle bli fikset innen mandag kveld...uhm right.... en hel helg med en slowass connection? Dette blir gøy gitt! Heldigvis funker MSN ganske så bra - men skal jeg sjekke nettsider og sånn så tar det alt fra 10 sekunder til 20 minutter til aldri å laste ned sidene......*sukk* Har fortsatt et bittelite håp om at linjen kanskje fikses i løpet av idag - men klokka er nå snart tre og ingenting har skjedd enda sååååååååå håpet er litt vel svinnende...:(

Jaja. Slow connection = mer tid til å scrappe..eller...? Kanskje....:p
Lagde denne LO'en til DareJack #3 - fant ingen gratis filmstripe på nett (litt vanskelig å søke med denne hastigheten også gitt ;p) så utålmodig som jeg var lagde jeg meg min egen fra noen rammer jeg hadde liggende her. Den er i .psd fomat så om du har photoshop og lyst på en filmstripe du også så bare gi meg et lite pip :)

Og så fikk jeg en utrolig hyggelig overraskelse i posten idag -- var så heldig å vinne noen søte små englevinger hos Kine, og ikke bare sendte hun englevingene, men også en del store, tøffe blomster (den gule på LO'en er fra henne) og det utrolig superflotte kortet!!!! Seriøst, holdt på å dåne, så flott er det!! Ikke så rart at Magnolia kapret henne til DT'et sitt gitt!! :D

    Så bra du likte det! Og kult at du fikk brukt noe av det right away! Digger layouten, freshe farger og kult med filmstripen!
    Lykke til med Telehor, jeg kunne sikkert skrevet en bok om hvor dårlig service de gir. Vi var uten nett i nesten 2 mnd i fjor fordi de aldri klarte å sende oss nytt modem. Grrr.

    Kjempekul jack!
    Jeg kommer ikke inn på bloggen til Kine jeg, og var sikker på at det var noe feil, men jeg skjønner jo at jeg går glipp av ting her!
