What a shame I missed Diane on Create and Craft TV! Next time, please could you mention on the blog when you'll be on UK TV for all your British fans?
Both Layouts are stunning - so much detail to admire! I am in awe of anyone who can scrapbook as it looks so difficult. I tend to stick to cardmaking.
