HI Christine this is so cute love yoyr colours and the matting and layering! great!

May i just make a comment about piccies, they are a little grainy and this happened to me! play around with the pixel sizes you possibly have not got them big enough! hope its a help and you dont mind me interfering!

Hi Christine, absolutely gorgeous - love everything about it, especially Dexter. Must get me some more Doraline and Dexters once I'm settled.
Nearly there - just waiting for my stuff to arrive from it's seemingly world cruise then I can really get back to normal and I'll be 'stalking' you again.
