A Nice Surprise...

We had a great weekend with my parents coming over from Sweden and I felt a bit sad when it was over... But at least I got a nice surprise when I caught up on my mail this morning :)

A few days ago I entered a blog competition and then instantly forgot about it (I always do this when I enter a competition, as the chance of winning is always small, so it's best not to get your hopes up). Anyway... Imagine my surprise when I have a mail from Karla Dudley saying that I won her blog competition and I have a space in her next on-line workshop! Yay! :)

I have always loved making minibooks and I have followed Karla's blog for a while now and always admired her journals. I love the ones she makes with stitched spines etc. I'm really hoping something like that will be taught in the workshop and I'm so excited for it to start. :)
