Grim weather -> grim mind

(also, listening to too many old Ricky Gervais XFM shows -> excessive use of the word “grim”)

The weather is crap but I really can’t complain when I see the situation others not too far from here are in. So I’ll shut up and stop whinging now. Anyways, I tried to scrapbook today as a little mood booster, but after staring at this page (how cute are those photos of my dad) for over an hour (sadly, I’m not exaggerating) trying to figure out what’s missing, I gave up. I keep forgetting the whole “imperfection is perfect” thing ;)


I *know* that a couple of cleverly placed, dirty-green Prima flowers would solve the problem, but I’m trying to resist. I’ll probably cave tomorrow though…

Here’s a layout I made with the November Label Tulip kit. Just because.


Alright, this is so cool – the girls over at Minneriket asked me to supply a photo, title and journaling for the finale of All In, the big contest that’s been going on for months now. Usually I’m not a big fan of using the same photos etc in contests – photography, wording and personal stories are such a big part of scrapbooking for me – but since they requested a photo of Bobby I was over the moon :D


Go here (I think it will work even if you aren’t registered) to see the six finalists’ layouts featuring the deliciously sleazy Bobby…and here to congratulate the winner, Catrine! She has been such an inspiration to me ever since I started scrapbooking, so it was really cool to see her version of Bobs.

Time for bed. I am so going to get up tomorrow morning and add flowers to my layout. *sigh*

    Hihi, det var gøy å scrappe Bobby! Digger lo’en jeg! Kanskje du kunne prøve med sånne halve perler (finnes bla i mm sin bling-serie) på blomstene på mønsterpapiret for en subtle touch?

    Beautiful pages…as always! :D I’m so with you on the sitting and staring at a page thing. I’ll attach something, stare for way to long, attach something, stare, remove something stare, etc. If I would just cut out the staring parts I could probably get my pages done a hell of a lot quicker!
