Getting to Know Bente!

I was so super excited when Bente joined our team!

She is so uber talented and I love her style!!!!!

How long have you been scrapbooking?

I have actually been scrapping for a few years now.
I am not sure how many.., and the first years don't really count anyway as I have hidden away those pages at the back of my wardrobe LOL!
It is only the last three years since I started my blog that I have become more serious in my creating and have evolved as a scrapbook artist.
I started playing around on different challenge sites etc and learned a lot.

What was your favorite subject in school?

When I was a child I enjoyed and was even good at all the subjects at school. I think I enjoyed languages history and geography the most.
I did not like maths so much but still ended up doing economics and statistics at university,....

What's your favorite movie of all time?

There are so many great movies, I cannot say that I have a clear favourite.
Just to mention a few; Local Hero (with Burt Lancaster) , Lorenzo's oil, (with Susan Sarandon) , Nostalghia (by Andrei Tarkovski)
and on a lighter note Something's Gotta Give (with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson)

Aside from food, water, and shelter, what one thing could you not go a day without?

I need my scrapbooking supplies and my computer! From there I could probably do almost anything I want.
(At least it seems like that right now, but who really knows what you will miss the most until you don't have it anymore :-D)

Would you rather have a Margarita or Pina Colada?

Could I have both please,.... I don't really drink very often as I normally have to drive my kids somewhere.
Still you managed to pick my two favourites.
We lived in Mexico for three years and I developed a longlasting love for Margaritas, and apart from these two drinks I love me a good cold Mojito!
Cheers!! So happy to be here at Scraps of Elegance!!
