So I chose my pretty papers from 7 dots from my Cest Magnifique kit November,

I LOVE INKIDO AND THEIR CHALLENGES. YOU CAN FIND THEM HERE http://inkido.blogspot.co.uk/
I fell in love with scrapbooking a few years ago when a friend introduced me to a class and I havnt looked back since. I am a daily scrapper and love all things pink, pretty, flowery, layered and shabby. I find it hard to make a layout without flowers!!
I have just started posting again to scrapbook.com here http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=galleries
Hope you like my layouts, have a great day. bye for now.
