Hi everyone,

Just when you thought Christmas was over along I came LOL
Image I have used is Poinsettias by Scrappers Delight.
They are also our sponsor for this week.
This has been coloured using Promarkers...

Love the gems drops. They were in the flower stash the hubster bought for me.
I am going to hate it when it runs out.
Thankfully there is still heaps to use.
My name is Janice (AKA Scrapper's Delights), I discovered the digital scrap booking world November 2008 and started to Design February 2009 and really love it so I decided I wanted to have my own shop so here we are lol.
