Hello to you all!  SUCH an exciting time isn't it?!?  
I know you were expecting our MAY REVEAL today 
but you need to come back TOMORROW for that &
it will surely be worth it for you as we are hosting our

A HUGE competition with TEN MASSIVE PRIZES -
but more on that tomorrow!!

I am SURE you are all just ITCHING to know 
WHO the new team of wonderful artists are for
 the next term {term 2} at Scrap Around The World!

We had a truly wonderful response to our call BUT
the places are limited & the standard is high!!
