Happy New Year and Challenge 3 from ECP

A very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all, I hope that so far 2010 is being kind to you all, I had an adventure in the snow last night, just as the bells went and I raised my glass of champagne, Brian's phone went, the Fire Alarm had gone off at his work, a joke I thought, but -10 degrees and snow everywhere, I had to take the "Alchoholic" to work....and pick up one off his workmates from a wee village outside off Edinburgh, and I thought, what a way to spend the New Year.....but here we are safe and well, and I was right Mhairi and Allen did appear from Dundee to ring in the Bells with us....

Challenge 3 at ECP is here today, and is very gentle to get you into the swing off things, We have a fabulous sketch from Katie, to hopefully give you some inspiration, we were lucky to get to play with some great downloads from our New Sponor this year, the fabulously talented Sharon Armstrong from WillowDesigns if you have not already played with her digis, I have used Precious and the backing paper, this is the 1st time I have printed out backing paper and it worked out really well, very pleased with it..... you must give it a go, they are a pleasure to work with, as usual our DT girls have been busy coming up with fab projects to give you all some come on girls give us a go, and support both us and Willow Designs.....much love Avril xxxxx
