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. ♥


~~ Get this party started! ~~

Posted by Ania On Sunday, April 18, 2010


On Friday we had a little bachelorette/hen party for Maren. She originally didn’t want to have such a party – just a scrapping evening with friends at the local scrap-store, Hobbykroken. Sure thing we nodded in agreement, what a splendid idea. So – she got to borrow the store in the after-hours – or so she thought – and invited us all over.

DSC_6711Only, we didn’t really agree with her about the no bachelorette-part. We made our own deal with the owners of Hobbykroken. Maren would arrive to closed doors at the store, left wondering why they had forgotten her & us. Here’s Ann Hedvig and Ellen, who found a great hiding place across the streets (tall people only :p).

DSC_6714 Us smaller people however, had to hide behind the bushes in order to be able to peek at the store. Here’s Eli and Sonja. Yes, we got a few comments and looks from people walking past while hiding/during shooting a bewildered Maren outside the closed store.

Anyways. Long story short – we went to a photo-studio where we had a photo-session. A “few” photos incoming – I took most of the photos unless noted otherwise.



A thirsty bride-to-be…;)
(Thanks for letting me post this!)

DSC_7067  Rawrrr! Ann Hedvig & Marie…DSC_7084-copy

Love this photo of Marie, Maren and Eli – reminds me of a cover or something – so edited it 70ties-style to reinforce the feeling.. DSC_7121

Poor Maren – she had to put up with whatever these girls was up to. DSC_7150

Like wearing this red wig…(oh baby you look FABULOUS!) DSC_7157

Haha love these two photos of the girls in wigs :D DSC_7161 DSC_7162

Some more normal photos of the bride to be…looking absolutely gorgeous ♥   DSC_7166 DSC_7293

I love taking photos of Marie because she’s like, not afraid to goof around and stuff in front of the camera (and why would she – she looks fab no matter what silly things she pulls!)♥   DSC_7296 ♥   the power of wide angle lens!


I have way more photos than these shared here – but I’ll spare you the spam. Had a wonderful session & when we were done we went to Escalon – for lovely tapas & more wine ♥ 

Can’t wait for the upcoming wedding, Maren!! ♥
