A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That!!

Today's post is just that, a real mixed bag. There is a freebie thrown into the mix, but it's at the end of the post so you either have to scroll fast or read to reach it.

This veritable hotch potch of this and that is just how I like things...mix them up and stir with a stick! It takes me back to my childhood and mud pies!! (An other thing my mum hated me doing..messy!)

I mentioned in my last post that when I was a child I painted my face as a clown...but it wasn't this good!!! Maryse sent me this fantastic photo of her as a clown for her local school village carnival. You look gorgeous Maryse!!! I am envious..perhaps I should have an other go...I could hide some of my wrinkles!! Thanks so much for sharing it, it made me smile and smiles are a touch of sunshine on a wet day.



One of the things I have got behind with is posting the awards that kind people have passed to me.  I apologise to those lovely ladies for my lack speed.  I will endeavour to catchup but you know me...I talk way too much..too much talk, not enough action!!

For today I want to start by thanking Swapna from Crafts and Cooking and also the 3 Scrapbook Ladies for passing me the Friendship Blog Award.



Here's what the "Let's Be Friends" Award represents:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me!! I pass it to:

Ikea Goddess

Stellarific Creations

The Country Cellar

From A Yellow House In England

Scrappy Mommy

Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice

Digiscrap Designs by Lorie

Stories in Hand


I couldn't resist showing you this layout with Lilly that I made. I love the colours and the paint effect in the paper from Maryse at Mumure Scrapattaque. I was lucky enough to get this kit as a gift from her and it has so many cute graphics and papers that I have yet to use. It's ideal for Winter photos and so much more.

How about this for a great page. Chris from Bling-kin-eck is all organised for Mothers's 22 March here in UK. I love the soft fresh feel of this page. It really reflects the Spring, a time of year that I love. She has so many beautiful craft things on her blog it's like an Aladdin's Cave of ideas.

I know by now your asking yourselves "When is she going to stop rambling?".  I know, so I'll put away my stirring stick and stop playing with the mud..and cut to the chase!!

I have a folded frame freebie for you that I hope you like and can find a little corner for in your stash. I love making these!!



You can download the folded frame here

That's all for today folks, but drop by tomorrow because there is so much more to tell!!

Hi June, isn't it wonderful how people can meet and share with one another through their blogs and email. I love catching up with what everyone is doing and also finding out what it is like to live in other parts of the world.
