GDT Announcement - Give a girl a....

Yesterday I came home from a wonderful vacation in Orlando, FL. I've spend almost 3 weeks there and, again, it was so much fun and I really enjoyed the weather! Now being back home, where it's still cold and rainy, I'm feeling a little sad and I miss my flip flops....but on the other hand, I also missed scrapping. So between all the laundry I have to do this weekend, I'll really enjoy sitting at my desk again and make some new stuff.

Today I can also share some fun news with you: for the next couple of months I'll be guest designing for Give a girl a...! Give a girl a... is a small stamp company from Australia and I'm just in love with their stamps. Check out the online store where you can find all of their stamps, as well as monthly subscriptions. I'm really excited that Kellie is having me on her GDT and I can't wait to start sharing some work made with these stamps!

Monday I'll be back to announce the winners of my Vacay giveaway and the Paper Issues Birthday Celebration giveaway. You still have a chance for both of these to win!!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Today I have a layout to share that I made just for fun. We already had a lot of fun when this picture was made. I was spending a Saturday afternoon with my two little friends and their Mommy. Poor little Jan had to deal with 3 girls who love to dress him up, especially with pink girly stuff :-) I just love this look on his face, it really says 'Look what they did to me'.

I used the Amy Tangerine Yes, Please collection that I got at Paper Issues. It was my first order with them, but definitely not the last!
