Laura's Sketch 8

My last post was one week ago with Kazan's sketch, which basically sums up my week as far as scrapbooking is concerned. We did have a very hectic week though. After Beth and I spent the weekend in Holland, we had one day to prepare the house, as on Tuesday through Thursday our shipment from Australia was being delivered. Normally it all gets delivered straight from the container in one day, but as it needed to go into storage for a week, due to our Paris trip, it took three days and 4 trucks. With receiving boxes and furniture spread out over three days, we didn't know what was being delivered on what day, which meant that we had to hold onto our rental furniture until everything was delivered. You wouldn't believe how full the was.

Long story short, I had to actually schedule time Friday evening to make my card for this week's sketch made by Laura at 2S4Y. It's another great sketch. This is my take on it:

Supplies: cardstock - Bazzill, PPs and die cut - Basic Grey, ribbon - Vandoros, rub-ons - Crate Paper, metal hinge - 7Gypsies, lace - John Lewis.

The best thing about last week, we're sleeping in our own beds again after two months!!

Ik heb er nooit bij stil gestaan dat je zolang meubels gehuurd hebt. Ja, wel logisch eigenlijk.

Je kaart is werkelijk prachtig.

Wat een mooie en stijlvolle kaart. En dat even tussen het uitpakken van de dozen door. Fijn dat jullie eigen spullen er weer zijn. Geniet ervan!!

Nog een maandje en dan kan ik jullie huis met eigen ogen bewonderen.

Beautiful card, Lisette! So glad to see that you were able to create this even with everything you've been going through this past week...the colors you chose are fabulous, and the lace is my favorite part of it (of course! ;-D).

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
