Meeting Nancy... and CKC-Ft. Lauderdale

Hi my friends,

I hope you had a wonderful week. Yesterday was a great day!!! Seriously, it was loads of fun... I worked all morning, but then Ady (my BFF) picked me up at work just after 1 PM and we went on a girls rendezvous. He, he, he! We shopped and giggled and just had some good times. We spent the afternoon at CKC and, although it wasn't as packed as last year and there were not as many booths set up, I still managed to find MANY goodies that I had been wanting so I was ecstatic. Yippee!!! Take a look at what I bought...



Then we rushed back to get my car at work... We ran into a little speed bump along the way (literally, but that's another story. Right, my friend?) Got to my house, we freshened up in a HURRY and went to John Martin's in Coral Gables to meet up with Nancy and Pascal from The Netherlands. For those of you that don't know Nancy, she is one of our scrappy friends from Holland that we met through her blog and on SIS TV. She is quite talented! She makes beautiful cards and has such a distinct style of scrapbooking. Nancy is also the sweetest, friendliest gal! We had so much fun last night. I wish we would have been able to hang out with them more, but their adventures took them all over Florida so Ady and I were just glad that we got to spend a little bit of time with them over dinner and drinks. Oh, and what great conversation we had. Here are some of our pics (including some silly self-portraits)...








And here is Richard talking Pascal's ear off!! LOL! And Jorge (Ady's hubby) was making faces... I think the guys had a great time, too :-)



I was thinking about how the Internet has shaped my life and I am definitely going to do a layout about that. I don't mean in the obvious ways! I'm referring to the fact that I have met some wonderful people through Internet sites and those friendships and connections have evolved into even bigger friendships and connections and so on... I even met my husband on the Internet! Cool, isn't it?

Thanks so much for your sweet comments about my Spain album. I'm just so thrilled that you all love the concept as much as I do :-) Now I will be working on a smaller, simpler project this coming week so stay tuned...

Peace and happy scrapping!
