Beautiful

The vase of daffodills that was on our table when we went to our Retreat in March. There was a box of Milk Tray as well, but we ate that! Jen took the picture, I can't put pictures together like she can.

First attempt at using my Counterfeit Kit to make a layout. I'm fairly happy with it as it's not something I would normally do, the mixing up of so many manufacturers.

Jen's photo is lovely and it's nice to see you out of your comfort zone Laura. You'll get used to it. I love what you have done.

Well perhaps you should do it more often as it's worked really beautifully here! The photo is a stunner too - well done Jen (Scribblemonster?) - and I'm so glad it was the chocs not the daffs that got ate!

Your LO is stunning. You said you don't usually mix manufacturers but as you can see it has worked so so well here. I can't wait to see what else you do x
