I was hoping to fit a little bit of sunbathing in before heading to the school but it's starting to look slightly overcast now - typical lol

Thanks a million for dropping in on me today, it makes me smile to know I have company in blogland...in real life I tend to just ramble on to myself and I find myself really quite boring ;) tee hee xo

Bear Hugs:

Best Birthday:

Fairytale Ending:

Happy Travels:

Magnolia Blooms:

Miniature Floral Collection:

Sadly, Caryn Davies is standing down from the Design Team and as much as I will sorely miss my friend (because first and foremost that's what she is, a friend), I'm thrilled and excited for her as she embarks upon a new and wonderful venture :)

I am wildly happy to report that the magnificent Lucy Abrams has agreed to join the team (happy, happy, happy!).  I am in complete and utter awe of this lady, who is not only ridiculously talented, but also such a lovely, lovely person.  Lucy will be a huge asset to the team and I am humbled to have her join us...have I mentioned how lovely she is? (she's truly lovely!).

Back to this month, I am pleased as punch to have Jo Nevill and Cindy Lovell joining us, they are undoubtedly two of my absolute favourite ladies in blogland :)  Please join me, the sensational Design Team and our lovely guests over these next few days as we share with you our July release creations.  Thank you so much in advance and have a wonderful day!! xoxo
