Well, helloooooo there!!

Since it was going to be a perfect summer day today we decided to take the whole day off from work to go to the beach. Yesterday evening we started to prepare everything to be sure that we could leave really early in the morning..... until.... we looked out of our window when we woke up this morning.... It was all grey and dark.. just like it would start raining in a sec!!! NOOO!! This was soooo NOT what we had planned! Sooo.. just to be sure we stayed around the house......just doing some errands.... UGH! Such a pitty!!! The weather turned out not too bad at all.. but no beach weather.. that's for sure..

Last month I was challenged by CreativeXpress to work with some yummie Imaginisce "A shore thing" goodies. The layout definitely didn't turn out the way I wanted.... I really miss some details.. but I'm not sure what.. hehe.. (pictures: from our California trip in 2007)


Right now I'm working on some cute cards for my first ever card workshop on August 23rd in Doorn (The Netherlands)! So excited about that.. but I'm also kinda nervous if my creations will turn out the way I want!! I'm working with some yummie new American Crafts goodies!! YAY!! They are so colorful and fun to work with!


Ok, I'm going to make some coffee and sit down a little bit before returning to my scraptable!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

XOXO
Nancy
