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. ♥


~~ Celinechallenge, Pencil-Lines and our sunday ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, March 17, 2008

I decided to join Celines challenge - see, tomorrow (monday) is her birthday (happy birthday!!) and she's doing this challenge to give away a prize for someone completing a project including the manufacturers she's on the DT with.... Rouge de Garance, Prima and American Crafts..although, you don't have to use RdG if you don't have any as it's harder to come by than Prima and AC.. anyways...decided to do a minibook made of RdG paper, some prima flowers, swirls, ribbons and a strip of primapaper, AC thickers (both alpha and shapes) and pen and otherwise, just paint, staples and um, I couldn't help but adding juts a tiiiny wee bit Hambly. :p Think it turned pretty cool - love that the dabber-paints matched the papers perfectly and well, just love the overall colorfest this little minibook is. The measurements are 6"x2.5" :) Am so looking forward to her class here in April - I joined the first class (Guess what!??) and wish I could join the second class aswell, but alas....the price was a bit steep bleh. Ohwell am happy I get to join one class at least - who else are going??

For Pencil-Lines we have the crazycool (crazy as in that being a good thing, I totally love her style) Ashley Wren guesting and nrgh, I don't really like my layout for that sketch but dang her totally totally totally rocked! I have to try let loose and just like, relax and sit back and just scrap the way she does cause she really rocks the stuff. Anyways. Nice personal sentimental-valued photo, sucky layout. Can't always win hm :p

Was gonna add some future peeks but hm, this post is sooo photoheavy already so guess I'll wait ;p I can and will promise this is gooood stuff though keke ;p And I'm gonna do some awards soon aswell (thanks Iris!!) guess I'll save that for a shorter post tho :p

In other words...we had a nice sunday - I spent the day with Amalie and my husbands grandmother visiting various graves for the Easter before heading back to their home and cooking dinner for the grandfather, my husband and kiddo who had been to the summerplace to check on the boats and stuff. The weather was sunny and bright but the air was crisp and so cold... and by the evening it was snowing again. Ohwell. Adding some even more photos - yikes - sorry ;p

Ps!! Bored during the Easter? Don't forget the ongoing challenge over at Scrappedugnad bout making a layout including circles!! And there's a new challenge inc friday...yay ;p

Fin dag idag - Simen og Adrian ble med Beste til hytta for å fikse båten og sjekke at ting var ok og sånn mens jeg og Amalie ble med Ma på en liten kirkegårdtur før vi dro hjem til Ma og Beste og ventet på guttene for å spise middag sammen. Før vi dro hadde jeg en kjapp fotosession med Amalie her hjemme - søtnosen min =) Hanen og hønene så vi utenfor Fana kirkegård - noen private som hadde de frittgående i hagen sin - helt frittgående altså, porten var åpen og greier så de kunne liksom stikke av men neida - de holdt seg innenfor hagen :) Nyydelige farger på hanen. :)
