Layout: Corfu city (1)

It was difficult to find the right colours for these picture but I think this patterned paper from Kelly Panacci and coordinating cardstock, work really well.

Sale shopping

Yesterday was the last day the Dutch stamping shop 'De Creatie' was open. The week before I drove whole the way to Veghel to go shopping in this great shop. It's really sad they are closing. I came home with lots of paper, magazines and stamps, as you can see.

On the way back home we also stopped at Scrapland in Breda, another shop that closes it's doors. There wasn't a lot anymore, but I still managed to fill my bag.

I'm back with candy links!

As I expected my computer totally crashed last week. I admit it wasn't easy living a week without internet, but I survived and have a lot to catch up with. I did scrapbook a lot during this week, but can't show you anything yet 'cause I needs to finish 5 layouts with title and journaling, for which I needed my PC.

Here are a few links with gorgeous blog candy:

Birthday card

I've combined 2 challenges in this birthday card:
http://kraftinkimmieskorner.blogspot.com/2009/02/kraftin-kimmies-birthday-celebrations.html: for today's challenge your card must be a birthday card and it must have some purple on it somewhere!!
=> Not really a colour I use a lot on my cards, but I found this nice paper in my scraps and based my card on this.

http://christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/2009/02/sketch-17-janina.html: sketch
=> Beautiful sketch, I only changed the size of the card because in Belgium we have to pay double to send square cards

Corfu: Achilleion (2)

A layout about the interior of the Achilleion palace.
I used some cheap chipboard (Kruidvat) for the title and painted it in a matching colour.

nice present in my mail!

Today the postman delivered a huge package for me. It was the candy I won last week at Steph's blog: http://stephmuchadoaboutnothing.blogspot.com/. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it. It was the best candy I ever won! Just look at these pictures and don't forget to visit Steph's blog 'cause she makes really beautiful cards!
And this is for Steph: thank you so much, girl! I still can't believe your generosity!
