A gift * Freestyle (and I mean FREESTYLE)

Finally, after being sick since last week Thursday, I'm back on track! Don't know what was wrong with me, just headaches, burning eyes, a voice that kept on being weird and not even a sore throat, and very very tired....... Not nice, because it meant that I could not go to the party we had last Saturday from Henk's work, so no nice dinner for me at the Manderin in Hamilton, and no fun at the Casino in Niagara Falls..... poor me........ Ah well, it was nice if Henk would have come home with $ 100.000,-- but..... well, you know what they say..... lucky in love.........blahblahblah........
Yesterday I started to feel a little better and than the mailman came.... and look what he put in my mailbox!!!!!

Oh my gosh, these gorgeous stamps from the Creatie in the Netherlands, I am so totally in love with these!! And I didn't order them, no way, my dear and sweet friend Jenny bought them for me, sent them all the way over the Ocean, and ....... it's a gift!!!! Jen, I love you, thanks so much!! Got some layouts in mind on which I can use a couple of these stamps, hope to show them soon!

She also sent me my first Christmas card of this year, thanks sweetie, it is so nice!!!!

And just a couple of minutes ago I finished this layout, I had the idea in mind for a few days, but didn't feel good enough to do some scrappin'.
The last couple of layouts I showed were Vintage, but..... this is Freestyle, and I mean FREESTYLE and I love it!!! Had so much fun!

I used my cupcake stamp by Maya Road, built it up out of different papers........



Finally used some tickets I had laying around since before Summer.......

Photobucket

Got my new Sassafras papers I bought 2 weeks ago, and started cutting, tearing, writing, stamping and painting (used crackle medium on the crowns), used some lace, even the lovely border they have on the new paperlines now..... and I like it!


I used a Autumn Leaves border stamp, a little hard to read, but it says "Remember happy moments". Oh, and the girls.... are my two daughters!! Come to think of it, I guess I have to make another one, cause they wouldn't like it if only one of them had it in her album!

Thanks for stopping by, I love to read comments, and enjoy the day!
