Here are some   sneak peeks -

So   if you dont  want to  do an album - there is also a  double  layout  from Tiff Sawyer and   single  layouts  to choose from as check it out!!!

Mmmmm....Breakfast at Tiffanys......

Im so excited - Im in my first   overseas ATC   swap - with the  fabuous  people   at    scrapbooknewsandreview  .   The theme  is  Black and white  and   just  before Christmas I was inspired to make these......I love  Audrey Hepburn and   black and  white  are her  signature colours.  You'll have to excuse the  touch of red -  sneaky  glimmer mist - I  kept  this one  cos it got the  red  color - the  rest  are on their  way to the US  ....  what do you think?

I also   came  home from holidays  to  some nice  news...Scrapbook  Creations want  to  publish  some more of my layouts.... so I  think that means I am coming up in  74,  76  77  and  78???   Im not sure exactly - you' ll  just have to keep an eye out.....
