Before we start we must say some sad good-byes
to our very loved Timea whose life just got too busy to continue and even though we only had Kris for a very short time - again life can get in the way.
We will miss you both here.

The design team did another wonderful job on this challenge. All the work is so beautiful and inspiring. I really had so much fun with this Challenge. I made myself use only the Chipboard, Paint and Lace on my layout. At forst it was hard as I reached for a piece of ribbon or went for my inks but I did it and I am so proud of the way it turned out. thanks for a wonderful challenge and for making me think outside my box for a change. Here is my layout I came up with. Have a wonderful day. Angela
