    Well girls, I'm sure you'll keep me right, really fancy a fabric cj next. Susie, I love St.Ives, my girls had a story book called : The Sandhorse and it was based in St. Ives and the illustrations in the book were just gorgeous so we had to see for ourselves, bit hilly though, bet you get plenty of exercise!!

    Oh Janice, what a shame. The restaurant is only 10 minutes walk away from my house!

    We are the REAL St Ives, we pre date the one in Cornwall, so we're the Original!

    Janice. will post who sending to and when shortly, just need to fill the last 2 places, but as you are second on the list, you and I will exchange pages in April, this gives you a wee bit of a headstart!!

    great -I need the start as I go to Italy onthe 22nd so will need to post before we go - When you say 2 pages do you mean front and back or 2 separate pages - what kind of thickness do you suggest?

    Its a 2 page spread, so both pages would cover the same theme, I usually include a label with my details on it, some folks just add their details on the back, happy to take advice on this though. Hope this helps.

    Lise Bu - welcome,

    Janice, it'll be 2 separate pages.
