This is lovely Debs - my favourite tiddly inks image and such a lovely layout - I had been looking at those lovely heartfelt stamps and dies - now I'm even more tempted! - hope the dinosaurs went well - my grandson has taken to playing frustration - I have my original game - on the box its made in 1967! - almost antique! - at only just 3 he plays a mean game - and then I can send him home lol hugs judith x
