I've been Tagged!!

For the first time!! LOL And twice!!! LOL
Thanks, Adelina and Elisa! :)

Here are the rules of this game:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I'm not sure, what's tough - to share personal info or to choose 7 people! LOL

OK, here we go... :D

1. I live in Russia. My hometown is Moscow. I was born there, cause my parents studied at the Moscow University. I live in Ryazan, that is 180 km S-E of Moscow.
2. I love orange color! I have orange pajamas, orange dishes, orange mop and orange tissue paper! LOL Hey, I have orange blog-header!! :D
3. My hair used to be VERY long. I had my first haircut when I was 19. But my hair is considered long anyway, although it's short for me! LOL
4. I spent my senior year in the USA. That was a lot of fun! I even made it to the musical!! Very small part, one line! LOL
5. My DH is a lawyer. A good one! 8)
6. Seven years in a row my only dream is to stay home alone... For couple of hours... No kids, no DH... I just need this time just with myself. Actually, I am alone now! LOL Last time this happened 6 months ago...
7. I love to visit fitness classes! But I've never done that since I graduated university 8 years ago. And now when I have CS3, how could I ever find time for sports?? LOL

That was fun, really! :D

Ну и по-русски. :))

1. Я родилась в Москве, пока мои родители учились в МГУ. Живу в Рязани, это 180 км на юго-восток от столицы.
2. Мой любимый цвет - оранжевый. Сейчас на мне оранжевая пижама, у меня есть оранжевая посуда, оранжевая тряпка для пола и оранжевая туалетная бумага! :))) ДАже заголовок блога - и тот оранжевый. :)
3. У меня всю жизнь были длинные волосы. Я отрезала их в 19 лет до лопаток. Для меня это коротко, хотя не все разделяют моё мнение. :))
4. После школы я год жила в Штатах, училась в 12-м классе. И даже попала в школьную постановку мюзикла, где для меня специально сочинили целую реплику. :))
5. У моих детей мама - русская, папа - юрист.:))) Вернее, адвокат, и очень хороший. :)
6. В течение семи лет моя основная мечта - побыть дома одной. Совсем одной. Я и дом. Ни детей, ни мужа. Это случается ОЧЕНЬ редко, но! Сейчас я как раз дома одна! :))) Полгода назад было такое же счастье...
7. Я обожаю заниматься в спортзале. С тоской вспоминаю приятную мышечную боль.... Последний раз я регулярно занималась на пятом курсе, а это 8 лет назад. А теперь, когда у меня есть ещё и фотошоп последней модели, выкроить время на тренажёры не представляется возможным. :))))

Ну что ж, это было весело, Аделиночка, спасибо! :)

I tag:

Free Mini-Mini Kit: Papers and Frames :)))

Yes, that's right! I coudn't resist the designing bug! LOL
I'm so grateful to Erica Zane, who is my inspiration and best adviser ever!!!
Thank you, Erica!! {{{hugs}}}

So I've come up with the first paper (inspired by the photo taken by my DH)!
And then the second one! And then the inspiration flew away! LOL
I decided to wait a little... And I did. :))) Yeah, it's a looong story! LOL I was thinking, what's the next thing you need when scrapping after you have a background? The frame it is! :))) And then I decided that's enough for the first designing minimalistic experience... LOL
So here it is, my first official mini-mini kit: Tulip Papers and Frames. WOO-HOO!!!!!!!! :D

Here's the download link.
I would LOVE to see your layouts! And please do not share the direct link, bring your friends to my blog. Thanks!
Geez, it's like tons of people will run over here... LOL

It's just a small note... I will have a year of blogging in the end of May...
Wow, it looks like it was just yesterday when I joined digiscrap-community... And it was a YEAR ago! 12 months! 350 days!! LOL

This year was a lot of fun! Searching for freebies, making CT and challenge layouts... I'm so excited and thrilled!

AND! I have a little something for you... Just be patient! I'm in process of creating... and it's not a layout! :D

Hugs to all!
You are part of my life and I love you!
