Yes... a really cool challenge this week!!! Check it out here. This is the one challenge blog that really inspires me to become more 'arty' and trying art techniques. There's a DT call as well. Ooooh and Amy - I've used a couple of bits from my susse you sent a while back!! (the old 1953 book pictures and the feathered parrot (yes real feathers!!) on a playing card)
11TH AUG PHOTO Paige drawing in front of the fire.
Who loves the thrill of getting THAT parcel!!
Who can put it to one side and wait till later?
NOT ME! (said with sheer glee!)
And online shops aside.....who is more than thrilled to get sent a little surprise package from a friend from the heart. This would have to be the most special of all! What a wonderful community blogland has created for us scrapbookers.
I'm so grateful for this.
Have a wonderful week

Awesome layout Mandy!

I've not ordered anything online that I've shipped internationally. So far, I've had nice friends bring packages back from the US for me...domestic shipping seems pretty speedy to me...

I would love to receive some handmade goodness but so far I'm the only one sending them out...but I love sending them out and making someone else happy...:)

Happy Tuesday!

Sigh...yes Julie...I'm surprised too. I ordered at the end of June, and I know things go missing in the post, but no dialogue about it is disappointing.

Beautiful LO Mandy!
so sorry to hear your package didn't arrive and that all communication went wrong ... that's the worst part isn't it!
I couldn't agree with you more about online friends, but you've read my last post, so you know how grateful I am for our little community! Thanks my friend!
xxx Peggy
