*~*HELLO*~*

Our 'normal' working life has started again.. hehe.. Our day off yesterday was perfect.. I managed to do all the laundry (yup.. still my favorite thing.. whahaha.. NOT), so I was totally relaxed when I arrived at the office today.. (buuut.. when I went home I was all stressed out again.. whahahaha.. I need more days off that's for sure!! Happily it will be Xmas soon.. our company will be closed for about 1,5 weeks.. so that's perfect.. hehe..)

Remember I showed you all a sneak peek of a layout that I had created for Scrap4life a little while ago??? Well, our newsletter went out today.. so that means I'm allowed to show my creations!! Woohoo!! I'll start with the layout and I'll show you the cards that I've created later this week. We had to create a 'thankful' layout. So when I saw this picture I knew I had to use it for this assignment.. I'm so thankful to have this beautiful picture and to still have my grandparents in my life!!!
A lot of you girls (uhm.. and guys) are curious what my fun news is that I'm keeping for myself already for a little while now.. I still cannot tell you the exact details.. but I can give you a little hint: I'll be teaching some classes in 2008!!! So excited about that, I never did this before so I'm a little nervous too..but I still have a couple of months to prepare myself for this huge step in my life.. ..hehe..! As soon as I'm allowed to tell you more I will.. I promiss.. hehe..

I'm in the mood to do another little card workshop like the other day (you can find it HERE).. so I'll probably try to prepare one somewhere this week.. so be on the look out for that.. hehe..

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks again for stopping by at my blog!!!!

XOXO
Nancy

Karin said...

Hoi Nancy,

Ik kom je steeds tegen op 2peas als ik de gallery doorzoek voor mooie dingen, heel vaak zie ik je avatar bij een LO die m'n BOS in gaat. Ik kom er nu pas achter dat je Nederlandse bent, en ook nog eens mijn achternaam deelt! Ik ben ook in dezelfde tijd begonnen als jij. Grappig, toeval... Je maakt echt geweldige dingen.

Groetjes,

Karin
