Friends.


Finished this layout a couple of minutes ago. I used 7 Gypsies, BG (Mallow) and paper from a designer mat pad and a tag from a tag pad from K&Company (Classic K). I got the designer mat pad and tag pad as a X-mas present from my former SIL who lives in New Zealand. The buttons and the brown dotted ribbon I bought at the fabric market in Utrecht and the other ribbon is from BG (Periphery).

Behind the tag is hidden journaling. The story is that in 2000 I won a prize with a contest by just leaving my phonenumber behind. The prize was a stay in Centerparcs in 2001 worth 1 thousand guilders (almost 500 Euros). So I asked 3 friends (Petra, Yvette and Ina) to come with me for a long weekend. Two of them I was befriended with when I was living in Utrecht and the other one lives in my present village. The funny thing was that they all knew me but they had never met one of my other invited friends. It didn't matter because they all got along very well and we had so much fun! Long walks in the surroundings of the village we stayed in, going to the swimming pool of Centerparcs and at night dancing the Salsa and drinking wine at our luxurious cottage! Only good memories!!

Erg mooie layout. Prachtige kleuren en bijzonder dat, ondanks dat een aantal elkaar niet kenden, het toch zo goed voelde.
