It's RAK time!!!

Yeah.. it's RAK time girls (and boys maybe??)!! I'm getting more and more in the vacation mood.. and to "celebrate" this I've been putting together a RAK with goodies I totally LOOOVE to work with! (yup.. addicted to them.. heeh.) For instance: stickpins, cute mini-Prima flowers, safety pins, 3d Paint, clear buttons etc.. and also some templates to create the same flowers as I'm using a looooot on my pages.. hehe (I've added a sample too so you can see how I've created mine). Be sure it'll be an awesome RAK.. hehe..

Here's a little sneakpeak:
The only thing you'll have to do is leaving a little comment on this post.. You'll have until Friday to do that, I'll ask my BF to pick a winner on Saturday morning so I can send you your goodies before leaving on Sunday.

I'm still having so much fun playing with the September kit of One Page at a Time (OPAAT), I just can't believe they picked me to be their guest designer.. I still feel sooo honored!!!! This time I've created an altered cube!! This is actually the first 'real' thing that I've altered..and I loooved to do it.. I think I'm hooked.. hehe..
Tomorrow I'll have to work only half a day...and then I'll be off to do some shopping with my little sister. I think we're gonna have a fun day together.. especially the baby-shopping part. (I think I told you guys already before that she's having her first baby in December right?.. so yup...Nancy is going to be an auntie in a couple of months.. whahahah)

Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy your day!!!!

XOXO
Nancy

Iemand is zaterdag de gelukkige eigenaar van een super RAK. Dit ziet er geweldig uit. Al die roze kleurtjes, de frames en de flowers. Het ziet er echt geweldig uit. In mijn BOS op 2Peas heb ik al veel layouts en kaarten van je staan. Mocht ik je RAK winnen dan ga ik eindelijk eens iets van je liften. Ik duim even voor mezelf............... Haha.

Groet Joke

Sylvia said...

haha, nou ik ga ook duimen dat ik de gelukkige ben!!
