We're home from our beachside holiday. And I'm sure there will be photos appearing in LO's soon about the fabulous things we did there.
It will be nice to catch up with everyone's blogs again and here's a start......... .
With Valentine's Day It's all about those heart-string tugging letters, child notes, vintage war loveslost and won etc etc....these are just examples!! Whatever you chose, your creation must contain a letter/s or note/s that you've written or been written by you or others living or passed.
Put yourShabby Valentine styleinto a wonderful creation!!
I made a little booklet to slip in all the love notes I get from Paige. She has always been a note giver and her little Valentines are beautiful. I've decorated with fabulous lovelies from Ruby Street who is our sponsor with a magnificent prize!! Ruby Street will be restocked with new goodies on 1st February so remember to check back then!!

This was a fab sketch!! Check it out here

And now to my news!!

I've been entering in Twisted Sketches for a little while because Anam's sketches are unique and there is always a twist which kind of makes the challenge a little more challenging! (and use things I forget I have!!) I won a couple and got an invitation while away on holiday to join the new team. This is exciting! I had to throw together this LO ready for the announcements with the twist being transparency, and though I'd taken some scrappy supplies away on holiday with me, no transparencies! However being a bit resourceful - I cut out the title and put some plastic behind it!! Hope to see you visiting there too!!
