(Litt skryt - test)

Jeg tok en test - "Why are you a good friend", og jeg kom ut som at jeg er en god venn fordi jeg er lojal. Kan vel ikke være uenig i det vel...

You Are a Good Friend Because You're Loyal

You stick with your friends no matter what, even if you feel like they're doing the wrong thing.
You believe in letting people figure out their own path in life. It's not your place to interfere.

And part of your loyalty means that you'll do a lot for your friends. You definitely go the extra mile.
You'll even do great things for friends without them asking. After all, that's what friendship is all about.

You are truly a friend for life. And you have friends you've known since you were a kid.
Your friends can count on you to do a favor, remember a birthday, or just be there to listen.

Your friends need you most when: They can't turn to anyone else

You really can't be friends with: Fickle people who change friends quickly

Your friendship quote: "Friendship doubles your joys, and divides your sorrows."

(Deck of me #34 - Laugh)

This weeks prompt was "Laugh ha ha", imediately I knew what just had to be the main motif on the card - 42 - taken from the funniest book I've ever read, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy - H2G2.
We were supposed to write about our laughs as well, mine is what I like to think of as hearty and rolling, never just a tiny giggle. And my sense of humour... it's on the dry side, (un)healthy doses of irony, sarcasm and satire blended well together with morbidity and black humour :D

The products I've used this time:
- Bazzill Kraft paper
- Ranger Acryllic dabbers
- Heidi Swapp ghostshapes (used as mask)
- Zig pen
- American Crafts Foam Thickers (I loooooove Thickers)

Thanks for looking :)

(Deck of Me #33 - 10 minutes)

Wow, I've done the challenge within 24 hours after it was given, that's a first for me (I think). We were supposed to use only 10 minutes on the card, and that I did (although I organised my scrapping space before I started (is that cheating?)). Amongst the songs I listened to whilst I made the card was The All Seeing Eye's "Walk like a Panther" (a thorougly cool song). When I first saw challenge #33 I immediately associated it with another song - 15 minutes by Nik Kershaw (I've been a fan since Human Racing). The song starts with "15 minutes, that's what you get, one quarter hour to get it all together"...
This time I've used papers from Cherry Arte (pink) and Rouge de Garache, Rub-ons from Basic Grey and an acrylic dabber from Ranger.

Thanks for looking :o)

(Deck og me 31&32)

Wow, I've already caught up, that hasn't happened in a while ;) These are my cards for #31 and 32 + the box I've decorated to store my Deck of Me. Thanks for looking
This is the one for week 31, No regrets - I do not regret always having been a good girl. There might not have been any rebellions in my past, but nevertheless, I'm not easy to push around.

This weeks prompt was Quiet, that reminded me of one of my favourite Bjørk songs:"It's oh so Quiet"...

And here's the box that I store my Deck of me in.

Thanks for looking :)

(Shakespears Sister - Dirty Mind)

Dette er en av de kuleste sangene jeg vet om, har vært hekta på den i mange år nå... Det skader jo ikke at videoen er ganske kul og da. Så i anleding dagen min, here you go:

(Caught up - take 2 - DoM)

And here we go with the second batch:
Week 26 - Celebrating daughters
Now we are half way through the challenge, wow! This time it's about daughters and I am one, but I wanted to deal with the fact that I'd love to be a mother and have (at least) a daughter of my own. I've used an old photo of myself - about the only one where I'm a little apprehensive. (Websters Pages and Jenni Bowlin papers, 7gypsies stamp).
Week 27 - Junk mail
I really hate junkmail in the post so I'm rather glad that here in Norway we can just add a sticker to our mailbox saying "No adverticements/junk mail". You betcha I've got one on mine :) (Jenni Bowlin papers, Dymo and 7gypsies stamp).
Week 28 - Goal of the week
The goal of that week that we got that assignment was to lay parquet flooring on my kitchen floor. Now, that goal was achieved thanks to a lot of help from my dear mum and dad. At least I now know how to do it and can do it all alone the next time. (Materials, you guessed it, Jenni Bowlin papers...)
Week 29 - Define perfection
This is a tough one, I could have stolen the idea of this woman and do one on the Harry Potter books (particularly book 7). Could also have done one on the walls I build around myself to try to avoid getting hurt. But then I decided to deal with my fascination with music. I've always loved music and have been told that I danced before I could walk and sang from the moment I could articulate. There's just so much lovely, perfect music out there, like the compositions of JS Bach, Lv Beethoven, Gabriel Fauré and the songs of Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Imogen Heap, Siobhan Fahey and so on...
(Materials: Bazzill, Heidi Swapp foam stamp, Fluid chalk ink, 7gypsies stamp)

(caught up - again)

I've finally caught up with the deck of me challenges, after 9 weeks! (yikes). And now that the cards are scanned and all I realise I screwed up the labeling, ah well, I'll fix it ... later
Picasa obviously won't let me upload more than 4 pictures at a time, so I'll split the post in at least 2.
Here we go:

Week 22 - would like to learn: I've always wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle, for as long as I can remember. They are just so cool, and I imagine driving on one of them with the wind in my hair - that's freedom. And one day I WILL learn to ride one.
(Picture of a Kawasaki bike from the internet, 7gypsies journaling tag).

Week 23 - Right now: This was made when I was on my vacation, visiting my family - so naturally I just had to make a laid-back card (masking tape, distress ink, Magnolia stamp, Jenni Bowlin tag)

Week 24 - Remember when: This is for my friend Marianne about the day we were alone in London, having Cream Tea, being pampered at Stila, seeing Fame and having wonderful Indian food. It was a NICE day.
Week 25 - A photo that means something to me: This time I went with a photo of my late grandmother. It's my favourite because it really showes her character, she was one of the gentlest people I've ever known, so kind and with a healthy sense of humour. (Jenni Bowlin papers, 7gypsies stamp).
