First time winner

To let you all understand, I've never won anything in my life, that is until I entered a competition at the SECC in March run by WS Design and was utterly shocked when I received a phone call to say that I had won £50 of goodies. Shortly afterwards my package arrived and I couldn't wait to open it. In it were A4 background papers, sample sheets & her wonderful templates (thankfully none that I already had).

What fun I have playing with my templates as it doesn't matter what the occassion but there is always a template I can use as they are so versatile.

Another example of how a little goes a long way, nothing more than some beautiful papers, stickles & gems. I very often find that the challenge I set myself is not what the final card will look like but infact how it can be made using restricted products. As we all know this can be a very expensive hobby and when doing workshops I like to let people see how to cut costs to meet their budget. It's meant to be fun not have us stressed out because we spent too much. Like we all so very often do......... My hubby never knows the true value of things otherwise he'd be the one having a heart attack. Thankfully he loves me.

Hi Lorraine, Lucky you - what a nice suprise. Love the Wishing Well - Well I love them all acually!! (Excuse the pun!)

The exploding pyramid is great - I hope you don't mind but I may have to borrow that idea ;0) The papers are gorgeous, and when they are so lovely it is nice to show them off.

Blog is looking great - no stopping you now eh!

Love Georgie x
