January Give Away Winner

Mad Tea Party Laout - Marion Smith Collection
After over two months of rain it was quite exciting to wake up and see snow falling yesterday.  Just a flutter but lovely all the same.   We've really got off lightly with the weather this winter, although everywhere is water logged we haven't been flooded out or blown away, yet! 

Thanks to you all for calling by my blog, leaving comments and of course for your continued support.  Once again the comments ran into the hundreds, and although I couldn't reply to them all I have read each one, and passed some of the funny ones onto Harry too! 

The random number this month selected by is 76.  Comment No 76 was left by
Huge congrats Esther. Please would you mail your address over to me at so I can get your goodies off in the post to you.  

Our Feb Giveaway will be announced tomorrow 1st Feb here on the blog and over on my You Tube channel so please call back and leave your comment to be init to win it as they say :-) 

Todays layout was made using the new Mad Tea party papers by Marion Smith.  I absolutely love the main paper with the hanging cutlery, cups and pots and wanted to create a layout around them and also use up the last of the Junque and Gems I had left too.  I kept to the pink theme, added cut out elements from Roses R Red and Rabbit Hole paper, raised on foam tape for dimension. The mat around the pic of Jo and Siany (one of the Crafty Elfs twins) is cut from Cor'dinations card stock and the pink side of the Rabbit Hole paper.  There's a little glitter and glossy accents on the chains, spoons pots and chair too.  Another one for the album :-) A Jan DT project for Jones Crafts

New On Line Workshop

If you like these new papers and fancy making my meander album it's now available in the blogshop at  A great little album to make, decorated with just one set of Mad Tea Party papers and co ordinating card stock for tags and photo mats. Cost effective too :-) 

Well that's me rambled out for today…….  many thanks for calling by, congratulations Esther on being this months winner :-) C
