The Good News! {at long last!!} a Paper Manufacturer Design Team for me!!!





I have had to keep this under my belt for the longest time
and it has been killing me LOL but finally I can direct you
to this post HERE where you can see my Design Team
introduction to the team at Les Papiers de Pandore in
France, owned and headed by the uber talented Julie Blanc.

I am mega-delighted to be working alongside Julie and my
dear Norwegian friend {now living in Sweden} Bente Fagerberg,
aswell as 7 other very talented and lovely ladies!  I believe
 the European papercrafting brands are strengthening
exponentially at the moment and I am over the moon
to have been selected by Julie to represent her brand,
that is a top brand in France & I hope you will all come 
to know it a lot better through me & be tempted to 
visit the boutique HERE and make your purchases :)


I sent my bio to Julie in English, she translated it into French
for the blog, but to view and read it if you are not French
speaking you will need to translate it back to English,
which makes for a rather interesting rendition - Google Translate
being a literal word-for-word translation as I'm sure you know.




I got a wonderfully warm welcome from all the readers of the
Les Papier de Pandore blog, and I urge you to click in and
add it to your readers now to keep up with the daily updates.




They are now running monthly sketch and colour challenges too!
