WOYWW 103 and Butterflies and Flowers PiF

Wasn't that fantastic last week at the Stamping Ground for the 2nd anniversary of WOYWW?  It certainly went smoothly here with Rebecca receiving my Pif gift and me receiving my wonderful present and matching card from Sue - I was really delighted with her wonderful hanging plaque which for this week is hanging off my drawers for you to see. So a BIG THANK YOU to Sue. I will find a more permanent home in my craft room and hang it properly but for now I'm just happy to have it infront of me.

Not a lot to see creatativity here today but I had a few goodies arrive - LOTV stamps, some under the sea stamps, 6 favourite water flowers  stamp set ( on offer at Joanna Sheen ) and a couple of others. I index the stamps using a technique I saw Kay Carly from The Stamp Man doing once. It's a bit time consuming but it does mean you know what's on each stamp and which is the right way up.
The beautifully wrapped gift I received and the gorgeous card.

Isn't it brilliant.
Now for a view of the gift I made. It's a Maze book which I had so much pleasure making I just had to keep on adding to, if I'd had longer I probably could have added more. 
Lots of photos to show but I need to show page by page.

  12. Fabulous!! both your book, which is amazing and your lovely wall hanging from Sue. I have popped over and had a snoop of your lovely crafty space, but I seem to be having blogger troubles! I comment and then later when checking where I get to, there's no comment! So I'm thinking I must scoot off too quickly and miss doing something else, like adding a code or something! Happy WOYWW
