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. ♥

Sketch #111 w/ Sarah Jane Dowsett!! :D Head over here to see her fabby sketch & layout, and the other girls lovely layouts!! :D

My little cutiepie.
I love taking such shots of the kids. Pretty shots. But also kinda hard to "connect" shots as in, uh, hard to scrap something (to me!) meaningful about. Like, if you look at this photo it doesn't really tell you much apart from how cute my little girl is *smirk*, but it's actually taken in Vigelandsparken in Oslo :p These days I want the layout to be about something concrete kinda - to tell more than just how pretty she is (and pretty she is! *grin*). Then it dawned on me - Amalie has two kindergarten-songs she's fond of and likes to sing here at home. I need to scrap them before she forgets them - that way we still have the lyrics here and get to show her when she's bigger what kind of songs she liked when she was little. Score :) And I have another song for another photo like this, yay :)

Love these Fancy Pants products - it's mostly older products, like the prettyprettypretty rose-paper (oh how I love this one) and the pretty flower-rubons..the beautiful blue paper is from the birthday-line, love this one too - the blue hue is gorg and the backside is funny in a beautiful way too (again - darn doublesided papers :p). Added this frame-transparency over the photo (5x7") w/white glitterflowers too, and used chipboard from uh, the daily grind I think. Flowers (glitterified with stickles) and transparency-tape from Prima :)

Tomorrow's my first class at Bikuben - eeks. Be nice :)
