This week's layout challenge

Clicking on the logo will take you to the Sketch Saturday blog where you'll find lots of examples of this layout:
Here's mine:
Here's a close up of the wee mousie. He's a Penny Black rubber stamp which I've coloured with water-colour pencils and a water-brush. You can just about see some tiny snowflake stickers.
The papers are from a 12 x 12 DCWV "Christmas Scrap Pad". This is usually £19.99 but I bought it recently from ArtyMiss for £5.99.

ArtyMiss are good for bargains. One drawback of theirs, though, is that their "search" facility is so poor; it can take a very long time to find something; and the way things are filed, you can easily miss something. So if you are interested in this paper pack, here is a direct link to it for you. They have a minimum order rule of £10 and delivery is £3.95. Be prepared to wait at least a week for delivery!
