Via Cologne and Paris

Via Cologne and Paris (via Keulen en Parijs) is a Dutch expression when something arrives at its destination taking the long way round. For those who'd know, I'd love to know whether there's and English equivalent for this (I could ask my DH, but he probably wouldn't know, and on top of that he's in the US at the moment). Anyway, I decided to resend my mum's gift and it got there in 6 days this time. In case you didn't see it yet in the 2Ps gallery, I'll show it to you now:

Did you recognise Ingrid's girls? I included all five grandchildren in the calendar and it worked out perfectly as they all appear on the month of their birthday and then once more on their own and one of the siblings together.

Materials used: Bazzill Cardstock, Basic Grey PPs, Heidi Swapp stamps and bling, Maya Road tin and chipboard swirl, Fontwerks stamp, Making Memories paint, brads, EK Success flower punch & corner rounder, Catslife Press stamp, Staz'On black ink, word for calendar days, Doodlebug paper frills.

As you can tell from the calendar it's Renee's birthday this month. My little girl will be turning 4 already. I made her birthday card this morning, but I'm not going to show you anything yet, since her birthday is on Tuesday which is only 5 sleeps away.

Have a great Friday and thanks for stopping by.

I saw the gift IRL last Wednesday, and it is beautiful. It is a great idea and I love it. And so does your mum. ;-)

Hi Lisette,

This is just exquisite. What a lovely idea, and you have balanced the appearance made by each child in there perfectly!

Have a great weekend,
