Scrap-a-licious weekend!

Sorry it took so long to update!I have been so tired lately,i needed to catch up some sleep...Okay,so somehow i always end up taking pictures with other people's camera's,so not many pictures to show...But i can tell you some stuff about the weekend.I went to Utrecht all by myself since my friend Martine couldn't come.I wasn't paying attention and ended up on Utrecht Overvecht...Great,just my luck!I was glad i had a train earlier,so i was still on time for the first workshop.

I knew a lot of people that were attending and i wish i had more time to say Hi to everybody.Still i got the meet a lot of people i know from blogging and from SIScrops etc.It was so good seeying some good friends of mine!I was sitting next to Natasja,and we had a great time together with lots of laughs!The first day we made an Art Journal,Hambly mini album and a layout.The Art Journal was my favorite since i learned so many technique's from that one.I never played with Gesso and water soluble crayons before,and yesss i'm hooked and need it all now!We had a nice lunch and talked a lot!I used the ranger ink applicator for the first time at Corinne's workshop and guess what?NEED IT!We stamped on 3d wallpaper and the results were way cool!I must admit that i didn't do much during the last workshop since it was so HOT because of the heater that was broke and the airco that wasn't working.I couldn't really focus so i was chatting a lot with my girl Celine.This girl is so crazy,she was cracking me up all the time!

This is my favorite picture from the weekend!I'm doing "my pose" and Celine is looking like what the f*ck??Love it!
During dinner i was sitting together with my girls Silvia,Antoinette,Natasja,Nat,Anke and Celine.Seriously i was laughing so much i got a bad headache.But ow so worth it since i had the best time ever!These girls are so crazy and we were laughing so loud!The dinner was yummo,and i think i choose the perfect combo!I had a goat cheese salad for start,followed by chicken with french fries and ice cream for desert.Not really diet food,but who cares!

After that we had a crop but we were all wiped out so we didn't do much...We all bought some tickets for the lottery and we all won something!My friend Anke won the cool spindle with cards from all these fab designers.No i wasn't jealous or anything :D
Afterwards we went to the hotel we were staying,which turned out to be a hostel.I thought it was great!Only the vegetarian breakfast was disgusting!!

Next day we started of with the vintage mini album workshop by Celine.She brought these cool tree stamps,which i loved!Can't believe i didn't use them!We also did a workshop by Corinne using a custom made wooden album(verry cool) and a layout by Celine.I finished the layout yesterday!We used a Brayer for the paint on the background,and i used tape from the technique we learned the day before.I love the way it turned out!A mixture of Celine's style and mine.At lunch time we made some pictures outside.The weather was terrible and i looked like crap!!Oh well... :)
Sweet Danielle,the owner from memorylane Scrapbooking was there the whole weekend and her store was filled with yummo goodies.I bought some things,i was meaning to buy for a long time!

So to make a long story short,it was a really cool weekend filled with cool new and old friends,awesome workshops and yummo products.Can't wait for the next one!And for the people who weren't there...You misted out BIG TIME!LOL
Happy Scrapping!
