  1. Lots of ideas from these three designers! Martha-Martha-Martha- “SQUIRREL” Thanks so much for this unexpected extra ~ I have to do a couple of pages for my dog and his Squirrel friends. Joan ~ your extra pics to show how you created the layout are awesome. Reminded me to order that house/home cartridge! and once again Japan’s elegance shines through with their choice of stunning papers. Well done to all three of you! I’d better get cutting~
