"If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much."

Having spent a year and a half living in The Netherlands, I learned this cute phrase from the wonderful Dutch people, who tend to have millions of cute little expressions, "doe maar net alsof je thuis bent," "klein maar fijn," and so forth. When I saw this new 2007 Cosmo Cricket designer paper, it was truly love at first sight, with the paper kit titled Dutch Girl. The luscious prints remind me so much of Holland, that I had to buy some. There was a challenge on SCS that I wanted to try using this layout, by a contributor who goes by HB. Take a look at her card, and see what inspired me. She's got some other gorgeous creations to look at. I needed a hiatus from working on my taxes, and this card was such a nice break to create.
