    1. Lorraine your sooooo very very welcome! you have been a great Guest DT and its been our pleasure having you play along with us! hugs Samantha and the team! xx

  3. I was SO EXCITED when I found this awesome challenge. I made one of my old wooden spoon mini fold-out albums. It's one of my most favorite Christmas projects. I find old wooden spoons at the thrift stores for $0.25 and get busy decorating them. I hope someone finds this tutorial helpful. I am a LOVER of Simon Says Stamp, so figured I would play along and cross my fingers!
    Thanks for a great challenge!
