Sooooooooooooooo thank U to Petra for being our Guest Designer this time…..I soooooooooooooooo appreciate it!!! Here is a little info about her:

My name is Petra Coolen. I am 44 years old and live in a small village in the Netherlands with my partner, daughter, dog and rabbit.
I mostly scrap about them and myself offcourse ;)

Early 2004 I started scrapbooking and never stopped since.
Some of my layouts have been published in a Dutch scrapbookmagazine.
I always said I wouldn´t start a weblog but look at my now: Petra's Blog!!!!

My style is freestyle (I like to mix things up) but always in a sort of orderly way. I like humorous layouts! For example a silly photo/blur photo, a funny quote, the use of non-scrapbooking material or using the standard material in a different way. I hope my layout inspires you to join this challenge. The winner will receive a “happy mail” from me which includes some cool Dutch scrap goodies!

(Did U see that LAST PART???? Petra looks like she will be giving away a PRIZE TOO!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKK!!!)
