Happy Weekend!

Hi everybody, just a quickie today, as I am going to Bonn with a friend today for the opening of a new scrap and craft shop there; should be fun!

These are the journal pages I made yesterday. I seem to be fixed on playing patchwork with pieces of paper just now. For these ones I used two pages cut out of a home decoration magazine, which I cut into different sized rectangles and mixed with some white and gold paper scraps. I put some other cut outs on top, and the first verse of *Mack the Knife*, which seemed to fit...

And I have received the last of my postcards from Lenna's postcard swap, a beautiful card made by Lynda Roddy Ozzanto. Thanks Lynda!

Okay, that's all for now. Have a good Saturday, take care, and thanks for visiting!
