Prize, good news, Paper Adventure #10, and work in progress

This is gonna be a long post, so you are warned!!

Remember I won a prize at Category Stories? Well, it took some time but yesterday I got it in the mail and it is really awesome! Look at all the goodies I got!

Great chipboard diecuts, alpha stickers, rubons, stamp by Heidi Swapp, really gorgeous ribbons!
IOD papers which are double sided......
...... and this is the other side!

And Making Memories papers, I love them, could never find those awesome shapes here, and now I have some!!


Good News!!! Yesterday I finally got my status as Permanent Resident of Canada! No visitor anymore, no more calling and asking how long it's gonna take, no, it's done, final, I can stay!! Very very important for me, so very very happy!!!


We all have talent. We do. Maybe not the sort of talent that can draw a crowd on the street, but something we are good at. Something we are proud of.
This week, write about your talent. Yours. Not your dog's, or your friend's or your kid's. Allow yourself to be impressed with what you can do.

A new prompt at Paper'08, loved it!!

As always a detailed picture, the first time I used Grungeboard, what great stuff to work with! I did this one with crackle medium and really like the way it turned out!


This is my page for this week, hope you can read the journaling, cause for some reason the picture won't enlarge! (edited!! I've changed the picture of the complete page, now it's readable!)


And here a sneak of my work in progress. I really can't show the pages, cause it's a gift and I'm afraid the person who's receiving it, reads my blog too!

Thanks for visiting again, and for your comments, have a great day, and hopefully my MoJo comes back soon..... cause my blogging is terrible at the moment!!

Bofkont wat een mooie prijzen heb je gewonnen. Ik ga volgende week ook weer hard werken aan mijn PA 08. Loop een stukje achter.

You lucky girl, what great goodies!
Can't wait to see what you make with them. I just love your work with the grungeboard, looks awesome and can you share some of your cooking talent, that seems to have escaped me!

Congrats on your Canadian status!
