Sassy Studio Sponsors Crafting From The Heart

Sassy Studio Designs are sponsoring the Crafting From The Heart Challenge blog again this week and this time the challenge is an Anything Goes one! Everyone's favourite!

Noor! Design UK Guest Designer Post #4

Good Morning and welcome to another of my guest designer posts for Noor! Design UK. This week I have decided to make a start on my TA presents for the end of the year, which is in 3 weeks time! Eeeek. Still have sooooo much school work to do!

I absolutely love how it turned out and will be making the rest next weekend as I also want to give one to some of my other work friends (I will have finished all my end of year reports by then as well, so will have more crafting time too!)
