good weekend


Another good weekend.
The beginning of yesterday was a little disappointing when I've red the main story of the most important newspaper here in the Netherlands. It was the same story as I'm working on for the last couple of weeks, but mine wasn't ready to publish yet. So, I'm disappointed that I wasn't the first to tell it, but It's good that the story is out there now.

At 9:30 I've arrived in Utrecht to take part in the Scrap-a-Licious weekend, hosted by Corinne Delis.
There were about 40 scrappers, from Holland and Germany, with classes from Corinne and Celine Navarro. It was great to meet Nathalie and Anke from Germany for the first time irl.
We had so many good, interesting and funny conversations while we scrapped. It was also good to see everybodys work irl. I've learned a lot of techniques.
I've started an art journal, a mini album and a layout.. still have to finish it all.

After dinner we cropped and we've had a lottery with some awesome prizes. I was lucky to win four!
Most of us went to a cute hostle. I've shared a room with Fauve, Antoinette and Anke. We've had such a good time!

But I didn't book the whole weekend, when we've had to pay I was kind of broke (December, January..), So I went home this morning. it was a rainy day, and we didn't have any plans (this is very rare for us) so we stayed inside. And that was good.
Have a good week!

Hi Silvia,

It was nice meeting you after all these years! Glad you enjoyed the weekend, so did I. I even finished my minibook yesterday! LO is almost done and I finally glued all the pages in the art journal together! To bad I don't have any gesso, because I left Scrapalicious with lots of inspiration!

Marsha.
