My Sir Stampalot creation

Hello everyone and have to say I am absolutely overwhelmed by all you support and entries for our very special challenge and blog hop. I have received some lovely mails saying how much you are enjoying it and judging by the fantastic entries to the challenge it's a theme that has really caught your imaginations.

And if you don't know what I am talking about then go to the post at the top of my blog where you see that you have twelve days left to enter and be in with a change of winning a Big Shot and lots of other prizes.

I explained yesterday that I could not post my creation until I was certain Andy and Janice had seen it. I was able to give it to them when my hubby and I helped them in the final stages of their move which came right on top of their return from visiting the States for CHA, then big trade show.

So I can now share the small book I made for them with a Medieval slant of the 'Knight and his fair Lady's' move to the new shop. All pictures are of the new shop floor. I have used so many stamps and materials that I do not intend to list them all as I normally do, but if anyone needs details on anything specific such as stamp codes, let me know. And a special thanks to Nick who works for Sir Stampalot and kindly agreed to take the pictures for me whilst Andy and Janice were out of the way in the States. Here are just a few of the pages from the book.

The final page, a sort of in house joke about my all time favourite stamp Stampendous P107

Hi, Brenda.. Sorry I haven't had much time to join in with all the excitement. Life is full of "stuff" lately, and a bit of a rollercoaster as a result. Having trouble keeping up. Loving your book for Janice & Andy! What a sweet idea. Bet they loved it! :o)

Anyway, hope to catch up with you soon.

Hugs,
Chris xx
