Oh My Gosh! and Quebec

About 2 weeks ago, Lauren (so glad I found you back girl!!!) had a Spring cleaning Blog Candy post! Had to laugh about that one, cause she always has the funiest posts, and I really like her way of writing. And..... actually, I loved what you had to do to make a chance of winning all that yummy stuff!

leave me a comment telling me the best challenge you've entered... : why was it best--great theme, cool prize, exciting DT examples?
tell me your LEAST favorite challenge--one that you just COULD NOT figure out how--or maybe WHY--to do it! was it too specific? too "far out"? too vague? spill the dirt...but in a NICE way, ok?!
tell me a challenge that you keep *hoping* to see, but no one has ever done yet! wanna make cards based on pink floyd lyrics? hoping for a dried-macaroni-collage invitational? we are always on the lookout for something new!

So, I just left a comment, telling about my favorite challenge blog so far..... and...... about a week later, got an email from Lauren, saying I had to check out her blog!

Ok, hopped over and what did I see????????
and the determined by the random number generator at is:
c'mon down

Wooohaaaaaa I won!!!!! Holy smokes.... look at what I got!!! (copied and pasted from Laurens blog btw!)

(there are LOADS of stickers, a whole bunch of rub-ons, a couple of little clear stamps, some prima flowers & paper birds, a box of heidi swapp colored pencils, a cute chipboard mini-album that's shaped like a house, some iron-on thingies, a set of unopened (but the plastic's yellowed with age, and i have NO IDEA where they've come from) hero arts flower-border stamps which may have come over with the pilgrims on the mayflower...lemme sum up: there is A LOT of stuff here, and i think it all reallllllllllllly wants to come and live at your house!!!)
Isn't this just awesome? Lauren said it was all "older" stuff, but for me...... it's as new as can be and I totally love it! Picked up the package at the post office yesterday and was completely speechless, which doesn't happen that often, I can tell ya!

And this gorgeous card came with the package and I love it! Lauren, thanks so much for the candy, and the card and I'm really glad we got back in touch again, NOT for the candy, but because we really "click" I think!

Ok, some other stuff!

My youngest daughter has been on a schooltrip to Quebec City this week, and came home last night, totally exhausted! But..... with about 450 pictures...... LOL, takes after her mom!

A basilique taken from the bus!

Montmorency falls! Isn't this gorgeous! And she went on the bridge over the falls, cause "mom had to have a picture of this" eventhough she is soooo afraid of heights!

The whole class in front of an awesome hotel, not the one they stayed in btw! Maybe these pictures and Laurens blogcandy will get my MoJo working again!

And this one, just awesome, a painted house, which looked so real Anouk said, that you would almost walk right into it!

I've been doing stuff, but I can't show it yet, so.... no creative outburst here this time!

Lieverd! Van harte met deze prachtige spullies! Het komt je toe, hoor! Enne...het maakt ons niet zoveel uit, he? Of het wat "oudere"spullen zijn!! Wij kunnen het fijne gebruiken!
Wat een prachtige foto's heeft dochterlief gemaakt! Daar kun je weer heerlijk mee scrappen!
Ja, wat een sukkel ben ik toch, he? Om zo'n adelijke boy te laten schieten, ha, ha.....
Maar goed...mijn prinsje op het witte paard (oeps!) ha, ha is ook ok, hoor! Die schat staat nu in de stromende regen stenen cirkels in mijn voortuintje te graven, omdat ik het niet kan doen met m'n waardeloze pootjes!
Big hug, Jen.
