Alrighty, so I spent Friday on the couch with a fever and a really sore throat just killing time by chatting with some of the girls in Norway. I’m not sure how it happened (but I do believe the “you’re a vegetarian so you have to enter “SOY”; it’s a sign!”-argument had something to do with it), but Ania convinced me to enter Creating Keepsakes’ Scrapbooker of the Year contest. Cool, right? Yeah. Except the fact that the entries have to be in the CK offices in Utah by Friday. And part of the entry has to be twelve layouts that have never been published or shown on the intarwebs before…gaah!
So I have been scrapping non-stop since then. The first night I made three layouts for Feriekolonien at minneriket.no (because I’m stupid and cannot enter just one contest at a time), and so far I have only made four for SOY. In addition to this, I’ll have to crank out a couple layouts and cards for Mosh Posh the next couple of days. I’m thinking I should send my SOY-entry by (priority mail I guess?) Tuesday morning to get it to Utah in time, so I really have to get my ass in gear. I just need a wee break to watch some bad tv and relax. Sheesh, I am so going to hate scrapbooking after this! :P
Ok, so here’s one of my layouts for Feriekolonien – the contest isn’t over yet but I’m assuming it’s ok to post i since it’s an open vote anyway.
The photos from the wedding were taken by Hege Mathisen from Larvik and are from our thank you cards. Oh, I forgot to mention that it is our first wedding anniversary today! Happy snuggle day, Gapo! :D
Anyhoo, I don’t think I have a shot at being a SOY finalist, but I just figured I would really regret it if I didn’t at least try. But man, it is hard for a slow scrapper like me to try making twelve good layouts in a matter of days. Sheesh.
