Bad news and good news :)

Hallo, only 4 weeks until I get married HURRAH!! been thoroughly enjoying the build up, have been stressed a bit too but having just been to 2 weddings in 2 days certainly put us in the mood.
A big congratulations to my friends Amelia & Rob and Ellen & Paul who tied the knot last week.
 In amongst the weddings I learnt that the bad news was I didn't make it into the semi finals of the Lilla Rogers global talent search with my entry above, my journal cover was based on the park that I go to most with Olive, St Annes Well Gardens, but the good news was that 2 lovely people who I have met through my blog have!! Congratulations again to Lizzie Mackay and Dawn Machell. Fingers crossed for the next brief cant wait to see their designs.
So on with a heady mix of work and wedding for me for the next few weeks followed by a honeymoon, yes a holiday, JOY and sparkly happiness coming our way!

  3. Bless you Ilona, thanks so much.....I'm such a lover of yours, keep hoping to spot your cards in a shop near me. St Anne's wells used to be my local too when we lived on palmiera ave (pre-kids).....those were the days, we had sooooooo much fun there! Give Hove a great big kiss from me, I loved summertime there.
