I'm Back!!

Yes it's me, i'm back!!! I had a little break from designing over Christmas and also had some family issues to sort out but i have to say i'm now back in full swing and am super happy again..hurrah, so expect more updates from me! I have been pretty busy catching up on design team stuff but i have managed to squeeze in this creation that i've made for the Lili Of The Valley Challenge and i got to use one of the new fabby releases!

Apologies for the poor photo but there is just no natural light in my place at the moment and it makes it very hard to get a decent picture! I used my lovely new Love Letters Paper Stack that i got in the range the other day...lovely papers similar to DCWV and same quality too! I made the flower using my cuttlebug quilling them sooo much. I also used my beloved favorite martha stewart punch!
