Photo swap and a surprise

Hanneke received my layout in the mail today, so I can now reveal the layout I made for her. I already received her layout last week, but I didn't want to open the envelope yet. Wasn't easy, because the texture of the content made me very curious. It felt like she used lots of embellishments. As soon as I knew she received mine I opened her envelope. I was right about the embellishments. LOL! She knows I love lots of them on my layouts. I am very happy with the layout and so is Sanne. I really like the black and white papers, ribbon, lace and stamps in combination with the pink and turquoise flowers. Thanks, Hanneke!

Here is my layout for Hanneke. I had to work with a picture of her and her in-laws leaving for a holiday in Gran Canaria. Not the easiest picture to work with. This picture was taken at Schiphol Airport.

Materials I used for Hanneke's layout: Scenic Route Laurel & Cape Town PP, Sassafras Lass Daydream & Serendipity PP, Fancy Pants Key Lime Pie PP, Foof-a-La & Rusty Pickle buttons, 7Gypsies sticker, Catslife Press stamp Remember, ribbon (Little Silver Hat), Heidi Swapp Block Alphabet Stickers, Making Memories Boho Chic Tiny Alphabet Stickers, Uniball Signo pen and Magnolia Journaling stamp.

Today I received a nice suprise package in the mail from my friend Nancy. We met each other on the internet some months ago. I found her on 2Peas. When you view the gallery you recognize her layouts and cards immediately. She has a gorgeous style and I am a huge fan. I once had a question about a material she used on one of her layouts and sent her an e-mail. Since then we exchange e-mails. Although we live only 11 miles away from each other we haven't met in person.....not yet. Recently she was chosen as one of the DT members for the manufacturer Junkitz. Yes, this girl ROCKS! We talked about the transparent tape/ribbon by Junkitz lately and she offered me to send one in the mail. Her envelope was on my doorstep today and I was surprised to not only receive the tape, but also twillz, buttonz, expressionz rub-ons and labelz. Isn't that generous? Thanks sweetie, I really appreciate this!!
