followed VERY closely with the UK launch a few days later- details to follow!
so are you ready to hop? here you go! stop by each of the design team ladies listed here and leave your comments!
 

and here to share with you is one of my projects.... I have used one of my coloured pages to create a jigsaw puzzle! I used an A5 piece of MDF that I had pre cut...  from my favourite place to buy MDF That Craft Place! ( Danny is amazing at cutting any shape I need!!) into 6 pieces, then once coloured I used gloss modpodge to glue and seal to each piece! fab little gift to make. I Loved making this, I need to be more adventurous and make one with more pieces next!

well go...get hopping!!!
Hugs
Nicole
