Hi Gemma. I'm really sorry to contact you like this but I can't find your email and I can't find your application/address. I know you sent it in because I added you to the swap blog, but I honestly cannot find it. Would you be able to do me a HUGE favour and email it again to Thanks so much!!! I was double checking the list, and my Feed Reader... and going "something doesn't add up"...
