Gold is still on trend…

I’m sure that many of us would have thought that by now, gold in the world of scrapbooking would have long gone? It hasn’t and gold is still very much on trend, much to my delight! Whether it’s the magpies in us (no pun intended!) that migrate to the beautiful lustre of gold or whether […]
