  8. Hi Elaine, such a pretty card, I love the colours. With regard to the question you left on my blog, I believe the only place that sells the AE storage pockets in the UK is here: http://www.makethedayspecial.co.uk/shop.php#!/~/product/category=6554047&id=25537367 they sell out as soon as they get them in though sadly. I got mine from SSS in the US as they seem to be better stocked. Hope that helps x

  9. Wow Elaine, love the image and papers.

    Hugs Diane
