ooh looked like it worked...

Sooooo am I sat here all smug and satisfied because I am packed and ready to go.????

What do you think..???

Am I frikk, lol.

I am sat in the middle of the living room surrounded by samples and clothes, knowing that there is something really important I am supposed to do.!! I am getting picked up for the airport in 3 hours. Aaaaaaargh..!!!

Ah well I can sleep on the plane.!!

I have been running round like the proverbial blue arsed fly all day and I seem to have suddenly run out of steam. But I didn't forget that I had promised you a technique video. So feast your eyes on this. Filmed on my iphone would you believe so the volume is not brilliant, but it was all done in one take, lol. I hope you enjoy it and have a go yourselves.

I showed it to my Tuesday night ladies and that was it, they sprayed and blotted all night long lol.

Here's a couple of Bezzie Su's backgrounds.

cool aren't they..?

I,d like to intoduce you to the work of some fans of Dylusions.

Conny  who loves my stuff and makes cool samples
Chrisg a fellow Northern Soulie. I have been meaning to post this link for 2 mths now.!! Luscious ledger journals.
Piddawinkle who has a fabby step by step journal page.
Laura who has been blogging her fabulous travel journal.

OK that's it , I really need to pack.

I'll try and blog as often as I can whilst I'm away.

See ya chickies xx
