Scent of Papers

Been wondering what is it that gets us on the hook? I love papers and it is soooo bad we here in England are spoiled with choices and prices are fan-tas-tic. Where else you could get 54 sheet 12x12 Laura Ashley pad for £2.50? Gorgeous design and here it is.


I copied pictures from some auction site, but never mind.

There is a problem thou. Papers are so beautiful, I barely use them, just because I might run out of sheets. :( Can't bare the idea.

Oh no, these are NOT from any auction, but a wonderful local shop. I couldn't find proper pics from anywhere else that quickly.
