I WON!!! I can't believe it! I actually won the One Little Word Challenge!! I saw so many amazing, gorgeous entries but they picked mine Wow, I feel really honored!! :)

Hehee, isn't it amazing what you can find on Marktplaats (dutch version of E-bay)? A couple of weeks ago Erik came along this advertisement of someone who had booked a weekend at Centerparcs (vacation parc) but couldn't go due to circumstances. She offered the house for a really nice price and we decided to take it even though we didn't plan to go on a break so shortly after x-mas vacation. So last weekend we went. We had a house with 6 beds so we let Anne take a friend. On saturday my parents came over for the day and they brought along one of Lennart's friends, which was a big surprise for him! So even though it was only a weekend we had a great time and a lot of fun! It made up a little for me being sick the whole x-mas vacation. (BTW, you don't see me in the pictures but I was really there... behind the camera... of course!)


And here are a few projects I made for Scap-Art-Zine:
A LO for an article about Prima for which I had the honor of interviewing the awesome Sharon Laakkonen and 2 wine bottle tins for an article about gift wrapping:
And some sneak peeks:

Thanks for popping by!
Have a nice day!
Birgit
