1st Year Blog-Anniversary Candy....



Hiya to all my blogging friends...It's coming up to my 1st blogaversary on 23rd May, can hardly believe a whole year has nearly gone by since plucking up the courage to start my own blog...Where has that time gone ....

I am so pleased I finally decided to have a go at blogging, it's been and is a really fun journey and I have made some lovely friends along the way and feel so proud to be part of five fabulous Design Teams,thanks girls you are all fantastic and make it all so much fun.

I would like to thank all my wonderful followers for all your support and lovely comments you leave me, they are all very much appreciated, you really are all the best.I am really enjoying following you all and love coming to visit to see your gorgeous creations, thanks for all the fabulous inspiration.

To celebrate my 1st year, I have some Candy for you, hope you like it.


My 1st Blogoversary Candy

Tim Holtz Book ~ A Compendium Of Curiosities
Tim Holtz Grungepaper 6 sheets
2 Ranger Mini Misters

What Tim Holtz has to say about his book...


Get ready to embark on a journey filled with ideas and inspirations to spark your creative curiosities. This compendium is a compilation of my thoughts and ideas to guide you through your own artistic adventures. I wanted this book to be different though … not your ordinary “how to make” book, but rather “how to create”. I believe everyone is truly creative whether they think it or not. It’s all about embracing your imperfections and taking time to explore the imaginative. What you’ll discover will be wonderful, what you’ll discover will be yourself…
This 77 page book is filled with ideas on all things idea-ology, plus just about every technique I could think to put in it. The book is hard cover and metal spiral bound so it sits open flat on your table while you’re creating. I share my favorite supplies, tips, techniques, and a gallery showing ideas of putting it all together…

If you would like a chance to win my Candy, please follow these 3 rules..

1) You must be a follower of my blog.
2) Remember to post a piccy of my Candy in your sidebar and link back to me.
3) Please leave me a comment and I will use Random.com to pick a winner on the 4th June.

This Candy will end 8pm on the 4th June.
xxx Good Luck everyone xxx
