Wow Paula, you have done an amazing take on that picture, it is absolutely gorgeous, love how you have used the rik rak ribbon and all the lovely colours - I think I like even better than the original! A x

Sorry Paula. Must have missed this wonderful creation due to tech issues at the weekend. It is amazing!! What a clever idea to use the advert as inspiration and such a beautiful interpretation. I agree with Redanne, it's better than the original. Hugs, Buttons x

Oh Paula I love your layout. Love all the little details and the happy summer colours. We haven`t had any summer weather here in Denmark, so I`m glad we fly to Barcelona on monday. Things are moving forward with my legs. I do not have as much pain, but right now I am still waiting for an answer about my low B12 numbers. I have a time at the hospital in late August and then I can hopefully get treatment.
