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. ♥


~~ Out & about ~~

Posted by Ania On Saturday, July 28, 2012


Thanks to the few last days left of my vacation last week, I had time to join a few challenges around…I get sort of itchy if I don’t have anything to scrap, sort of (I’m sort of a weird scrapper, I need to have challenges, assignments or other outside purposes in order for me to actually scrap). Besides. I just got back home after a two week vacation with no scrapping at all.


So I went to 2peas, saw their CHA-challenges, and thought – oh gee, that’s fun! Especially adored the color combo challenge:


That’s what triggered me into entering the challenge.

That, plus the fact that I was still trying to clean my desk (hah! an abandoned project by now :/) and sorting through all the various bits and pieces made me want to use the old stash.


Then I saw that I could combine the various challenges. Cool beans. That meant I could steer my layout into including a pocket (see the tags), using fabric (ribbons included) and have a title from an old or new collection (mine’s out & about, which’s an old collection from MME).


I adore the fact that I managed to use lots of old stuff, like the hexagon stamp from Autumn Leaves and rub-ons from Hambly Screenprints and Fancy Pants Designs!


The layout’s about a girl’s day out w/my daughter =) It included a lot of running around in a botanical park, watching people dressed up in clothes from old days downtown, eating cupcakes and watching a play. Among other things. No wonder she was exhausted on the bus ride back home that she fell asleep on my lap :)


Then the layout actually won the “put it in a pocket” challenge, which means I apparently got a prize from 2p otw to me soon. Makes this whole thing extra fun! And an extra thank you to the commenters who found me via 2peas :)


By the way! Did you see this? Piggy Tales is back! And their new collection looks way awesome! (I used to enter their challenges back in the old days….won once too, but never saw any prize :/) Well. Here’s to new beginnings! :p
