De Stempelwinkel - Elephant Present and a Thank you.

Morning all and thank you so much for stopping by.It's my turn again over at De Stempelwinkel and today I am sharing this little sneak peek of my Elephant Parade DIY kit.
This will be given to my Girlfriend's brother for Xmas.
If you have time it would be great to see you over there, lots more pics ;)

I would also like to say a great big thank you to all of you that stop by weather it is your first time or you are a regular, It really is amazing to have you here and because of you guys I have had an amazing crafty year and made some amazing crafty friends.
I would like to say thank you to all my Design Teams and all the people/blogs I have been lucky enough to guest for. I have loved every minute of it.
The year has been dreamlike in many ways and continues to grow. A year ago I would never have thought I would be given the opportunities that have come my way,
creating for the stamp company De Stempelwinkel and The Octopode Factory, doing my first tutorials for Decoart. The response has been overwhelming and very much appreciated.
Next year is looking just as exciting as I am now putting some class ideas together and working alongside Tando-Creative (watch this space ;) ) I will also hope to be doing some Demo days with the Decoart products, best keep my fingers crossed that there will be some interest ;)
Thank you to all the gals over at Haunted Design House who gave me my first break in asking me to be on their DT, I love getting my creep on with you ;)
And really a great big thank you to all of you that keep stopping by, None of this would have happened for me if you guys did not keep popping in xx

Ok, soppy bit over with xx
