    Happy Birthday to Us!!   TODAY IS POLKADOODLES FIFTH BIRTHDAY - WOOHOOO!!! Firstly, if you arrived here from Kath's blog as part of the blog hop, then you're in the right place!  I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for supporting Polka Doodles over the past 5 years, we've seen so many changes in the industry and we still love what we do and get such a thrill with every new product we release. It's so awesome that all of you keep on supporting us along the way and we know that we wouldn't be here without that great support.

    Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.
