I'M STILL ALIVE

Alright girls... I'm still alive, so DON'T worry LOL. I was very sick the last couple of weeks (I still am UGGHH).. And ofcourse quite a few deadlines. I will have 2 new articles coming up in the december issue of the dutch scrapbookmagazine Creatief met foto's. I worked with some YUMMY new CHA releases hee hee... Sorry, I can't share it with you right now but I love the way they turned out... Here is the layout I did for theembellishmentstudio.com. I am working on another page and a fun little project for them... You really should check that site out because the ribbons I got are DELICIOUS... Aw and I got this picture from Micki Slife... I was in search for some winter themed pictures. Unfortunately this picture didn't get picked by the editor BUT i love it anyway. So I needed to create a layout with it... Hope you like it Micki.. I am going to show it to the editor though, maybe she wants to publish it after all ;)


Last Saturday I was in EDE again. MANNNN, I LOVE THAT PLACE... Not only the shop but also the people over there... They make you feel HOME. Truly my kind of people... If you live in Holland. Please go and check it out (or let's go together ;)

SDJZ (the shop) was celebrating his FIRST anniversary. And ofcourse I needed to be there... I was there around 11 am. We had so much fun scrapping, FREE make and takes, chatting... The shop closed at 5 pm but my husband called me that they would be a little late. OOPS, what was I supposed to do. But Dorenda (the amazing owner) told me that I could wait there till they came... I was soo happy.. thanks again dorenda...

So ended up celebrating the anniversary along with the owners and the team. (HEE HEE HOW LUCKY AM I). I took around 60 pictures WOW... I'm glad that I could help them to remember that BIG day. They drunk Champagne and so did I.. Uhmm actualy I tasted it LOL.. I don't like alcohol.. Bleehhh, no NOT MY thing.

Dorenda and DENNIS:

Monique and her sweet little boy



Finally around 6pm my hubby came to pick me up. We went to a restaurant to celebrate OUR 5th ANNIVERSARY... We are married for 5 years, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??? Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera with me :(

Ow and check this out: http://mojoholder.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/10/challenge-33.html#comments ... I feel totally honored.. thanks girls

I know I got tagged but really I need to go to bed now... I'm really really tired... I hope you girls don't mind it... I have so much to do and so much to post that I get tired at the end of the post LOL

big hugs girls
