Sneaky Peak time at Clearly Besotted!

What a weekend I’ve just had!!  I travelled down to Essex to meet up with some of my fellow Clearly Besotted girls Aimes Wanford, Debby Hughes and the gov’ner herself, Stephanie Wincott!  Steph is about as generous as you can get with her hospitality although I have come back feeling rather ashamed of my clutter – that girl has MINIMAL taste!!  I don’t think we stopped talking for more than 5 minutes!  Thanks for your company girls – it was the best weekend ever!  I’ve added a few little pics below but we were chatting so much we didn’t even stop to actually take very many!



We filmed a couple of 10 Minutes Craft Dashes too so stay tuned for that – what a laugh we had!

As it happens it was a very timely gathering too as we are the beginning of September which means ……… NEW RELEASE TIME !!! I am always excited when September comes around – for me its the start of the countdown to Halloween and of course Christmas!  Steph has some amazing sets coming out this month too and I can’t wait for you to see what’s in store.

Teaser Time

Today I am sharing a card made with a gorgeous Halloween set called Boo To You! featuring some cute pumpkins and spooky sentiments. My card is more Autumnal than Halloween though!  The sentimant is from another new set, Autumn Flowers.
