First day of work, and a layout

Today I had my first day with my new employer. It all went well, but I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day. There is always soooooo much information to gather on a first day. I talked, listened, talked.....all day. I was welcomed this morning with a beautiful bunch of flowers. Isn't that a warm welcome? My new employer is a small management consultancy firm with only 23 people, and they all (well, the ones I met today) are very nice. I am sure I will have a great time. And you know, one of the things I like best about this job is that it is only 25 minutes from home. So no more traffic jams.



Last night I scrapped a layout with SEIs new Ally's Wonderland papers. I used a sketch for the very first time. Never done that before, and I am not sure if I will do it again. It has absolutely nothing to do with the sketch design - I chose this one because I liked the design a lot - but I found it pretty hard to use a sketch. Since it was my first time I am not comfortable yet with using the sketch in a different way and adding my own touch. Perhaps I should try it more often. The sketch I used is sketch #22 designed by Valerie Salmon. I found it on her blog Got Sketch.



Materials used: Bazzill Cardstock, SEI Ally's Wonderland PP and rub-ons, SEI Penelope's Potpourri Buttons, Technique Tuesday Big Timber Line Capital Letters Tall clear stamps, Prima Flowers, Making Memories Tag Maker Rims, White label, Colörbok Date Stamp, Hero Arts Acrylic Chrystal Gems, Staples, EK Success Curvy Circle Cutter, Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad and Font Arial.

Well, I am off to bed now. Good Night!

Hey sweetheart! Good to hear your first day went well! Thanks for a funfilled evening last friday, so great to meet up with you!! Your layout in the last post is wonderful (as usual!) Hope the rest of the days at work will go fine and that you have a bit of energy left in the evenings ;-)

I love this page. It is every bit as good as your other creations. I have a difficult time using a sketch too. My first time was the Caardvarks 10K challenge, but perhaps I should try it again.

Fijn dat je eerste werkdag zo goed is verlopen. En je lootje is zoals gewoonlijk weer geweldig. Ik moet zeggen ik werk graag met sketches probeer dan wel m'n eigen draai eraan te geven zo van een beetje van de sketch en een beetje van mezelf.

Groetjes Anja

So good to hear you had a good start in your new job (what it's your job in Dutch?). Those flowers are a good sign I guess. Wonderful SEI layout and thanks for sharing the sketch-blog!

Wow, wat een geweldig welkom. Beloofd veel voor de toekomst. Je layout is prachtig, ik ben al bezig om hen te liften. Ik laat het je weten als ik hem op 2Peas zet.
En, ik kom zaterdag met m'n meiden naar D&D.

Zie je dan, groeten Joke
