A layout and some news!

This layout I created for the October old/new challenge at Scrapbook Express.

The old items I used are the old French postcard dated 1904, the lace and the card with the dwarf and the boots. The new items are the Graphic 45 papers, the Prima flower, the MM journaling card & bird and the buttons. (And in case you're wondering who's the girl in the photo....that's me in 1967!)

Also at Scrapbook Express I won the World Card Making Day-contest with the best card and won $ 20,- to spend in their online shop!

In September I created a layout for a challenge at Twisted Sketches and won!! I'll be their Guest Designer in December!!

And then some non-scrapbook related news: as of the beginning of October I'm a working mum again!! I found a job, very near by, where I can work during schoolhours and be at home as soon as the kids come home!!! And I love it!!! So, if I'm not behind my laptop as often as before that's the reason why!

Thanks for leaving a comment! Have a great evening and talk soon! xx Monique
