  11. Wow,some really nice projects again, I see someone loves that Poppy stamp as well as I!! The layout is gorgeous, a lot of cutting out and stamping there. Great job, most of the people around me do not stamp much with their layouts, I think it looks great!! They seem to think stamping is for cards only, NOT! Great Job.
    Again, love you Glu Glider Pro, has been my favorite from the beginning of crafting!!
