Nearly April already...

Morning all,

I can't believe where March has flown to, but can you believe it's April on Friday! I'm counting down the days when I can reveal all the new goodies in the Mini Catalogue :)

I have had a little play with some of the goodies already. My Stampin' Up! Class on Saturday will use some items from the Mini Catalogue which I'm looking forward to revealing in due course.

Saturday is also the day of a Mini Blog Hop that I am part of, so check back from 10am to see some projects I've made with Mini Catalogue goodies and in the afternoon for projects that my ladies will have made at my class in the morning.

Enjoy your week and see you on Friday with a link to the Mini Catalogue...

Bye for now,
