New York or San francisco? and a bookmark

Soo I am hoping there are some blog readers of mine who can help me out :).

Tomorrow we are going to the travel agency to start planning our trip to USA. One part is already planned and that is 3-4 days in Colorado Springs and now we are trying to decide if we go NY or San Francisco. I would love to go NY but the hotel prices are way much higher than in SF so I was hoping maybe somebody can give me some names of nice hotels/motels/b&bs in NY where you have stayed yourself and you found good. They can be at about max 80-90$ per per son per night.
I did this bookmark for a creativity swap that we had in my yahoogroup that I co run with a friend. We do swaps every month, mostly stationary related but I through in a creativity swap from time to time. If you are interested in swapping stationary, stickers and notepads then check out the group and upon joining just let us know you saw this on my blog.

Altered notebook and digital photo editing

I had promised that I would scrap something to a colleague of mine. I didn't want to do a layout as I wasn't sure what he would think. He has never heard of scrapbooking so I decided to alter a notebook instead. This is what I ended up doing.

Other than that I got some great news! I got accepted to the Digital photo editing course that is held by Jönköpings university in Sweden. It's a 100% online course which means I don't have to go to any lessons in Jönköping. A few minutes ago I ordered the only book that we are going to need during the course: Scott Kelby, The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers

What does my name mean?

It's Sunday and it's raining. I am bored and went out surfing the net.

I found this
fun site where you can do a bounch of tests. I did one about my name and this the result ;)

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are very hyper. You never slow down, even when it's killing you.
You're the type of person who can be a workaholic during the day... and still have the energy to party all night.
Your energy is definitely a magnet for those around you. People are addicted to your vibe.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

I am finally feeling better! I am almost cough free after being sick for 4 weeks :( . Today I'm going back to work and I really look forward to it. Haven't been there for a long time.

Here is a layout I made from the Scrapmuse November kit. Photos are from last year when me and Tommie went to Berlin for a weekend.

Coffee filter album

At one of my scrapbook forums we had an advents calendar swap. I wanted one part to be hand made by me so I created these coffee filter albums.
