Scrapbooking

Miracle of miracles…

…I scrapbooked today! I haven’t scrapbooked in ages (except for a measly attempt at a layout when I was at Papirfest in Norway); between Vegas, Norway and redoing the scrapbook room, I just haven’t had the opportunity. The embarrassing part is that I was actually having withdrawal symptoms. Seriously. So today I dug out some essentials (I only managed to sneak one sheet of letter stickers out so I used on all three layouts, in case you were wondering) from storage and got my fix :o)

So, this first one is for Lain’s Thirty-Minute Thursday challenge over at ScrapHappy. Anyone who’s seen me in action (evidence: Papirfest) knows that I’m an insanely slow scrapper, so this was a challenge for me. My solution was to use good, old-fashioned developed 4×6 photos instead of wasting time fiddling with them on the computer, journaling by hand instead of fiddling with that on the computer, and using letter stickers instead of fiddling with a die-cutting machine. Apparently fiddling takes up most of my time.

I should get extra points for actually using one of my Quickutz shape dies on this one – eh? Eh?

I finally finished the one I started on at Papirfest. Seriously, I’m that slow.

…and this one is for the Book of Me challenge over at Minneriket. I made a list of all my goals but it ended up being way too long, so I chose my top three and am going to sneak the complete list behind the green paper. Which by the way is not this garish and horrible in real life.

I can once again attest to the magical Prozac-like effects of scrapbooking. All is well.

Really need sleep though. Yes.

    There’s some saying about being forced to be creative with little producing the best results – you just proved it true. Love all your layouts and, yes, you get 10 extra points for using the Quikutz shape, LOL.

    jeg satt og kikket gjennom postene dine en gang til idag, og beundret “when I grow up,” og måtte innrømme for meg selv (og min dårlige engelsk) at jeg ikke visste hva spawn var.. så da måtte jeg finne frem clue. Jeg lurte Veldig når det første treffet var : egg , rotskudd? Jeg bare… what? vil bli et egg? *treg-ja* lengre nede på listen kom avkommet opp da…. Nydelig LO!
