Back Home, Cards Only 10 & Scrapcards 3

We got back home from New York yesterday. We arrived at the airport at 10.45am. On the last day in New York we went to Top of the Rock again. The weather was beautiful this time, so we had a much better view than last Friday. After lunch we went back to our hotel to pack our suitcases. We had to leave our room at 3pm. We strolled around Fifth Avenue for one last time and spent the last few hours in the hotel bar. We left for JFK Airport at 7pm. We took off at 11.10pm and had a very pleasant and uneventful flight. I even managed to sleep a little. We were home around lunch time and first ran some errands. No lunch from Subway or Just Salad, but just a plain sandwich. We picked up Fleur and Sanne from school at 3pm, and we all were happy to see each other again. The girls had a fab time with my parents. At the girls' request we had dinner at McDonalds.

New York was fabulous. Eric and I had a wonderful time. There is so much to see and do. Highlight of the trip was meeting up with my sweet and wonderful friend Kay and her family. Our meeting meant a lot to me. If we ever go to New York again - and I know that trip will happen - I would love to meet her again.

This morning I was at Paper & Pictures, and the new issue of Cards Only arrived yesterday. Jolanda is this issue's cover girl. There are many lovely projects in the magazine. Of course many cards, but also lovely gift labels, boxes and lots more.

Look what I received in the mail this evening....

A picture of the cover of the new Scrapcards 3 'Cards & Gifts' book by Paper & Pictures. The book will be available as of November 21st. The awesome project on the cover is created by Samanta van Iperen and it looks very promising.

The book can be bought at Paper & Pictures as of November 21st. The weekend of 21 - 22 November will be all about Scrapcards 3 'Cards & Gifts'. The store is open on both days, and the contributors of the book will be there to sign the book. So......I'll be there too. You can also take a gift workshop (€ 7.50) on one of both days. If you don't have time to visit the store to buy the book that weekend you can pre-order the book online. All books ordered no later than November 19th will be sent on November 20th. The price of the book is € 18.95 excluding € 3.50 shipping and handling.

Have a wonderful day!

I'm happy you made it home safely but I already miss you! I'm SO GLAD you and Eric came to NYC for a visit. My family and I are already looking forward to the next time! :o) I've been enjoying the delicious Goudeliers Stroopwafels. Oh my! They are so yummy! In fact, this afternoon I'm going to eat another while browsing through the CARDS ONLY and SCRAPBOOKING magazines you brought me. What a treat!!! Much love to you, Eric and the girls!! ♥♥ Kay

Fijn dat je er weer bent. Ik heb met veel plezier je reisverslagen gelezen.
Wat zien de CO en het boek er veelbelovend uit. Ik ben toch al zo'n kerstfreak dus ik kan niet wachten om de CO te bekijken.
