Time to say goodbye...

I just can't believe this term with Creative Scrappers is already over. Beeing a part of the DT has been a pure joyride and I have made some new scrappy friends, too. I chose not to reapply for a new term right now, as I know this spring will be extremely busy with life in general, but maybe Kristine will give me a second chance on a later occation?

Here is the last sketch from Creative Scappers I had the oportunity to se loooong before the official reveal:

And here is the layout I made with it, featuring DS9 and his buddy in the amusing park last summer:

Patterned Papers: Fancy Pants, Stitch stamp: WRMK, Button: Marens Landhandleri, Alpha: Fancy Pants, Adornit 

Close up detail: Stars made with Lifestyle Dies

If you chose to play with us and the sketch this week, don't forget to link back to the Creative Scrappers' blog for a chance to win one of the prizes from our wonderful sponsors.

Fast And Furious

Hubby runs an RC shop (RC=Radio Controlled), and I have two boys aged 9 and 12.
Do I need to say more?

Some times it gets too much. I mean, they have a man cave where they paint, fix and test their toys, so why on earth do I still find planes on the coffe table and tiny spare parts in the bath room? I wonder what they would say if I left tiny itty bitty scrap embellies all over the house, or my paper collections? May be I should mess up my scrap space big time, invade the man cave, sweep all the small car suspensions and gears away and scrap there, claiming I need to do it as there is no room in my own place? It's tempting... OK, the hubby is good, but ecpecially the youngest kid seem to believe every clean surface in this house shouts for RC bodies and parts....

They drive their toys too. And some of them are pretty fast, like this Traxxas Boss 302 VXL (Click on images if you wnat them larger).

All materials from MyScrapbooknook's February Kit, Featuring OA Sasparilla

Some close ups:

Cogs/gear made with dies from Spellbinders. They are perfect for my family!

Tell me, do your kids, or hubby, use your entire home as storage, or display place, for their toys or gadges? Do you have fishing gear in the hallway or golf balls in the sink - I doubt your significant part read this blog, so feel free to tell or rant :-)

Her planet need her, Tuesday giveaway winners and a Woot

Let me start with some Tuesday Giveaway winners:

February 7th Giveaway: Maria
February 14th Giveaway: Amanda Jane

Ladies, you have one week to claim your prizes - shoot me an e-mail with your full name and shipping adress to my e-mail adress in the right hand bar, and I'll send you your prizes :-)


The brag part of this blog post:

I have had to move some of the images from my blog. Do you want to know why? Will this image give you the answer?

The Scrapbook News And Review Volume #5 Issue #2 is going up later today and I am very excited. My scrappy goal for 2012 is to submit and get published, I admit that. Not to be famous and celebrated, but to see if I can push myself, get confirmed that I have established a style (hmmm, do you recognize that feeling, not beeing sure about your style?) and see if working towards a spesific goals forces me to try out new approaches to scrapbooking, not running in the same old track.

I will have two layouts in this issue of the magazine, both of them in the Pet department and about our budgies: one happy, and one very sad. So have a look for them, I'll shout out in my blog when I know which pages they are on.


She Must Go

... her planet needs her.

All Materials from MyScrapbookNook February Kit
featuring October Afternoon Sasparilla collection

I do a lot of thinking when it comes to titles on my layouts. I want the titles to say more than just what the photos shows, go behind the images shown.

If you are a cat owner, you will probably understand my title pretty easily. Can you tell me WHY a cat will spend so much energ on doing a long jump from the kitchen counter to the kitchen table, when it would be far less calory burning to just slide down from the counter, walk over the floor and then just access the table via the chair?

Close up showing my hubby's good looking behind

And according to my cat's attitude, the kitchen table is her kingdom and her planet...

Have a fabolous week, with or without prizes, glory and cats! Anything to share?

In our neighbourhood we have this party barn. It's a fun place, and about once a year, the neighbours in the small community I live in gather for THE PARTY.

This year the famous (at least in Norway) singer Rune Rudberg was the main attraction and boy did we party. The red neck factor was high, the party a success -as always - and the streets very quite the following morning *lol*

MyScrapbook Nook features October Afternoon Sasparilla collection in February, and this kit was just perfect for scrapping those barn party photos.

I hereby give you my lovely neighbours:

I told you - the rednecks live here too

Aren't these flags the cutest?

The Ultimate Guide To Getting Cuddles

  1. Look cute
  2. Look cute
  3. Look cute

Link to layout: http://scrapstreet.com/ss12/ap12/funny2.htm
I hade the design ready for this photo, and the title, but when I read The Weekly challenge on the Basic Grey Blog, I added the idea of using torn edges. The challenge also include handwriting, but as mine is very private, I have choses to write it down on the back of the layout. If you have seen some of my previous work, you know I often hand write on my layouts, like this one I did for last week's BG challenge, so hand writing isn't a big challenge for me anymore.

Materials on this layout:
  • Back ground pp: BG Basics Collection
  • Other pp: BG Max & Whiskers, one of my fav lines for masculine layouts
  • Alphas: BG + AC
  • Orange ornaments/page runner set: Charms Creations

Thank you for stopping by, and don't forget to foolow my brother's guide on how to get cuddles :-)
