As well as all the extra stash, I also get to see one of my pages printed in a magazine which has been a source of inspiration to me since I first discovered scrapping, so I am really bowled over by it all.
Thank you so much to all at Scrapbook Magazine and to the sponsors for their generosity - The Crafters Workshop, Heidi Swapp, American Crafts, Bazill Basics Paper, Basic Grey, Tando Creative, Fancy Pants and Maya Road.
Lindsey Hopkins, editor of the magazine, contacted me a few weeks ago to tell me the news, but I had to keep it under my hat until the magazine came out. A couple of days later, Postie Nick delivered a giant pizza box - can you imagine how exciting it was to open the box and find all these gorgeous goodies?!
|Brilliant chipboard pieces from Tando Creative - can't wait to start playing with these - thank you Tando!|
|Look at this gorgeous collection from American Crafts - Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers, Day Book and funky fabric stickers, as well as some squishy foam Thickers - wow! Thanks American Crafts :o)|
|These fab masks are from The Crafters Workshop - they're designer by an innovative mixed media artist called Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and I think they are going to be an inspiration to get going on my art journal at last - thanks Crafters Workshop!|
|Beautiful romantic vintage style card kit from Basic Grey - these will be perfect for Valentine's Day which will be upon us in no time, so I will be spending a happy few hours cutting and sticking with this kit - thanks Basic Grey :o)|
|Gorgeous trinkets from Maya Road - can't wait to have a go with the little perspex houses - thanks Maya Road!|

I have been a very good girl and kept all this in its box since it arrived several weeks ago - but now it's time to play!!! It's going to be so much fun seeing what I can do with all this ... is it wrong that my mouth is actually watering when I look at it?! :o)
