Another New Layout!

I just love the colors in my Snow Much Fun 2 kit so much, I had to play some more!
This layout is from the Winter Efteling. We went there in January of this year and I am hoping we go again! I LOVE the Efteling!
I finally got the torn and folded template to play with from Scrap Girls. I loved how Linda Cumberland used it on her quickpage (see Winter layout below) so I scraplifted her idea with the folded paper and the items under it. I also used a frame cluster from Lise-Lotte Sunesen from her Frame This Too set.
I noticed when the 2 layouts are side by side, the squares don't match up so if I am going to put them in an album together, I will have to readjust the paper a bit. It wasn't intended as a double page layout but I am anal retentive like that so I will probably end up changing it! lol
Anyway, another layout done! Yea!

I am posting!!!! lol

I actually have 2 new layouts to show off!
I am a new fan of Linda Cumberland over at The Scrapping Garden! I went to her blog for her part of the Christmas Around The World kit that was given away this month and man oh man! I was hooked!
She is in a designer contest at Digital Scrap Garden and you can download her mini kits she made for Parts 1-3! Anyway, I fell in love with them and immediately went and bought one of the kits! They are just TOO CUTE!

My 2 new layouts are quickpages from her "A Winter's Day" kit found here
The first layout has a photo I took of a frosted tree we had last week. Everything was covered in the frost and it was a true Winter Wonderland! Too bad it didn't last through Christmas!
The 2nd photo is of my youngest daughter and her boyfriend before they left for the Kerst Gala (Christmas Dance) earlier this month.
I just LOVE them! I am so glad I found Linda and her beautiful work! You can bet I will be buying lots more of her stuff from now on!

Christmas is still going on here in Holland. Here, we celebrate Dec 25 and 26. Our family also celebrates the 24th since we ARE American so we have 3 days actually! lol
Since we really open our gifts on SinterKlaas (Dec 5) with the in-laws, we really don't do too much for Christmas. Oh, we put up a tree, decorate the house, bake cookies, etc but we don't exchange too many gifts now.
Today, Rene and I did go to the soccer game like we have done for the last 3 Christmas's. Hmmm, is that spelled correctly? lol Anyway, 2nd Christmas Day (Dec 26), usually the whole family goes to a soccer game but Jenny is with her boyfriend and his family this year and Robert just doesn't like going so it was just Rene and I this year! Thank goodness it wasn't so cold this year and they won, like every other year! :o)
The rest of the day will be spent eating yesterday's leftovers and cookies, watching movies on tv and probably some more computer time.

So, that's about it! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Now, on to New Year's!
Until next time......
