Back at last

Got back from two fabulous weeks in Ireland last night. Had no internet there at all, so really look forward to visit you all!

Here are a few pages from the smashbook I worked in while away. A couple of journal entries and a couple of sketches of some of the characters we saw.

Also wanted to let you know that today I posted my first design team project for the Snazzys Design Team Blog

Here is a sneak peak. Hope you will go and have a look, they have fantastic products.

Astrid, those drawings are beautiful! I never could draw people but you have really captured the character of these two I think. Fabulous post!

I love the project in your first DT post. Lots of work and so much inspiration for the rest of us.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
