Can you imagine how excited I was when Lindsey Hopkins, the Editor, emailed me a few weeks ago to let me know ... I got even more excited when my fabulous prize arrived a couple of days later (a HUGE box of scrapping goodies) ... and then can you imagine how difficult it was to keep the whole thing under my hat until the official on-sale date which is TODAY!?
In order to enter the competition, you had to send in three layouts, along with instructions and list of materials. These are the pages I sent in (with a lot of encouragement from my friends!)
You can see I've used one of those vintage PG Tips cards I got in the charity shop a while back, one of the flowers I crocheted to decorate the favour bags for the ladies at our wedding last summer.
This one shows John and me during one of our walks in the beautiful Norfolk countryside - we often take a picture like this with with the camera held at arm's length and I like the way they turn out.
I had lots of fun with the background on this one and again used several "rescued" items and home-made embellishments. Here are some close-ups
I see you Archie boy! x
Can you imagine how difficult it was to write instructions for this one without going on and on ... I know, it's hard to imagine me going on and on .... :o)
I will do another post with pictures of the amazing goodies in my prize parcel ... I was very good and put them back in the box to bring out after Christmas but I'm itching to play now!
Well if you're still reading this extra-long post, thanks for your perseverance and thanks again to friends (especially Trina and Sally) for all the nagging and cajoling and to my long-suffering husband John for all your support and enthusiasm :o)
