Autumn/Winter Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to ESAD's Autumn/Winter blog hop 2011.

You have just come from the wonderful Andrea Buckland and seen her amazing creative skills and now you are with me Yvonne. This is my first ever blog hop and it is a privilege to be able to be apart of this wonderful group of talented ladies.

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love for what we do with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are always there to help and support each other when its needed.

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

I have used Strength & Hope stamp set for my project. Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from this purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer ans finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.

Everyone is touched by Breast Cancer in one way or another through family or friends, I hope that using this set and raising funds we can find a cure!!!
