Scrap Day with friends

Hi there!
Today my post is different......It`s about a scrap day I organized at my place with my Dutch scrappy friends. Of course I know them all and I met them separately more than once but some of the ladies met for the first time that day....and it was so much fun. I asked everybody in advance to bring some of their work and we also decided we are going to scrap......Well, it took some time till we made the first step but eventually we created, we talked, we laughed....we had a blast :-)
I have for you a few photos to show......
The only person you miss on the first photo is me....lol!
On this photo: Susan Smit (links) and  (right)  Paulien van den Bosch
Ingrid Gooyer (links) and Corina van Holstein (right)
And finally Me :-)....showing my unfinished tag. I wanted to make something small that day and I was inspired by Paulien`s work so much that I couldn`t help it :-)......
And of course the final result of my tag.......Shhhhhh, don`t tell anybody but this is my first tag I ever made in my life......

Hope you enjoyed my photos!
Wishing you lots of sunny days :-)
