Oooh thanks Pidd, you say the nicest things ;-)
Love the journal page especially the woman sitting in the shoe - genius! Great to see all the stages. How long did it take? I'm so slow a journal page takes me about 3 days LOL!

Hiya Piddawinkle
Dropped by via Dyan's bloggy - GORGEOUS journal page and great tutorial too.

It's always a treat to see other people's journals. Just off to have a peak at the rest off your bloggy :)

Hi Piddawinkle thanks for popping by my blog.. I just love the heart balloon stamp too! I can see me using it a lot!! it's a Paperbag Studio stamp. :)

Hiya Piddawinkle, loved the cheeky comment, and I was truly honoured to find you wanting one. Which one would you fancy? Let me know your address and I will send you one of the three recent ones and a lucky dip from my stash! I think you will be able to find my email address on my blog. If not let me know, I tried to find yours but am not too good at all this techno stuff!!!!!! Wait to hear from you. Sue x
