Get off the cross we need the wood

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. ♥


Piccies from yesterdays fun with Amalie! Me and Amalie had a girlie-day out hanging around McDonalds eating icecream and visiting her great-grandparents and oooh, exploring the very very cool areas around McDonalds..;) Alright. I might have evaluated the room for a perfect spot to sit & take piccies at. And I'm a sucker for cool backgrounds. Seriously. So when I spotted these containers from inside McDonalds I knew I had to drag Amalie along takin some more photos when done w/the icecream. So cool! And I made a nice discovery in RAW on how to edit those kind of outdoor-photos (basically drag brightness way up and counter with blacks and temperature, add vignetting & adjust the corresponding saturation/lumination) so they'll make a very nice foundation for the extra wrapup-punch in Photoshop :) I know. Color's so fakey...but oh, so yummy! :D Coudln't resist showing quite a number of them - sorry if they're loading slow! :)

I also have those layouts to show:

Pencillines featuring Sasha of the faithful followers of PL and such a talented her layouts, love that she's pretty much always doing the sketches and love the fact that she's our guestdesigner this week!! I used the january-kit from ScrapMuse (and a paper from an older kit from same kitclub).... cute K&Co and Making Memories papers...:)

Minnopol at Minneriket has started - first prompt was to make a layout about 10 things you didn't like. I did so - but kinda forgot one more thing I absolutely disliked (IV Antibiotics - I know - it's necessary & kinda lifesaver and stuff, but it doesn't mean I have to like how it's done!). Used a number of leftover papers I had lying on my desk - bits and pieces from various kits and SR papers. If youre able to check out the gallery at Minneriket do so - such fabulous layouts from these gals there!

Oh - I got a nice award from Tessa last night too!
A cute "You make my day"- award :) How nice - thank you Tessa! :D I have to say - you all make my day when you take the time to comment on my posts - I know a number are readin, but not that many compared actually comments - so - you who do - you make my day! :)
(No - I'm not tryin to guilttrip you readers - I'm happy people drops by and I'm guilty of slackin on commenting myself too *blush*)
