The best crafty news EVER !!!

Forgive if I'm a tad excited today but since Monday I've been harbouring a secret.........
I applied to join Jones crafts design team, this is a company that supply retailers with brands such as Graphic 45, Kaisercraft and the list goes on. Never in a million years did I think they would pick me but they did and I was over the moon. I will be working with my beloved G45 for them. There is 8 new DT members altogether and I can't wait to get started. Feel free to pop onto facebook and follow me Elaine Mellor and Jones crafts. Here's a snap of the fb page they put on.

In celebration I made a little Valentines gift bag using Sweet sentiments. 

Ok so sorry for waffling on, hope you are all well and having a good week. Be back over the weekend xxx
