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. ♥

I was kinda slightly bored the other day and wondered what to do. Looking around I figured I needed practice doing altered stuff...I mean...everybody and their mother are so darn good at this but me...uh...well I need practice right :p Made a little minikeyringthingie from some chipboards I got from an inspirationswap. I think the chipboard's from Gyda. Thought I'd do something fun with them so I put all the words from the One Little Word challenges on them. Like, just for fun (oh the things some scrappers do just to join in on a challenge *rolls eyes* *wink*). Have still 3 or 4 available chipboards so just bring on the words! ;p (oh yeah, the first piccie - "go" - is from a Scenic Route chipboardcollection. Note to self; while dressing up chipboard is cute and the results rewarding it's also a pita detailwork. Thank god for the BG precision file set! Oh, and another note to self; ALWAYS ALWAYS push back the ISO to the original setting after each use! Dang. Iso 640. *rolls eyes*

And a little while ago I was so lucky winning in a RAK and a RdG blogcontest. And while the goodies arrived some days ago I just haven't had the time to present them properly here on my blog - and they're so great that I just have to!

Lene S. was so kind and generous and sent me not just two (as she promised in her blog), but THREE of her stamps! Wow! I wanted to thank you properly Lene, so I waited until I actually had used the stamp on something before showing & thanking on my blog. This is a thank-you card (duh) for someone we'll meet in our upcoming vacation. I'm no cardmaker, but you gotta admit this is such a cute motif no? I'm picturing pictures of Amalie in a green meadow in a summeryflowery dress and these stamps as photocorners...or something like that :) Here you can see & buy her whole collection. Thank you so much Lene!!

RdG - these papers have taken their time arriving here but now they're finally at my home - YUM! RdG was also *so* generous.....lots of 6x12 papers, monograms, die cuts, 2x of EACH of the new paperlines including rubons...yum!!! Love the new collections - yummy yummy! hopefully I'll squeeze in some last-minute scrappingtime tonight.......can't wait..!!
