Thanks very much. I finally decided to use the one with the deers, but it was a hard decision! My blog post goes live tomorrow on Jo x
These are beautiful, thank you! I'm sharing my DD album on a UK scrapbook store blog Hey Little Magpie. Would you mind if I showed your calendar within my album? I would of course give you credit, if you don't mind. Thanks Jo
What a gorgeous collection. I'd love to win this!
Adorable! Beautiful colour way again with this collection, love it all.

Oh my goodness. You are going to bankrupt me with these gorgeous lines!! Wow, love absolutely everything about this collection, how can I pick a single item? I'll say chipboard pieces, but seriously it's the whole lot!
Oh my goodness, it's hard to narrow it down. But if I had to chose one with my arm twisted behind my back I'd say the word stickers.
Love, love, love this!!
I am in awe of what you have been achieving these past few years, that's some going! I absolutely love your Crate Paper line and am thrilled that is will be continuing to grow. Wishing you and your expanding family all the very best for the future xx

So pleased you're doing a DD, love to see how everyone else is doing theirs. I must do another coat of paint in my album and think about the internal pages!

My husband and I have recently taken our boys to one of our favourite places, Barcelona in Spain. We absolutely love it there and they loved it too. I havent't scrapbooked that trip yet, this line would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win.
