Don't ask me why...
Just cos...

Today has been a wet, stormy and cold type of day.
Took the girls to the library, where we got lots of books including 3 or 4 paper craft/Art books, at their request. Then we came home and they fought over them, sigh lol
Dave was home early today, which is always nicer than nice :)
Had an email, waiting for me tonight, from the lovely Annemarie. She had been reading a US store catalogue, Lily Pulitzer, and in it they were promoting their new clothing line, which are in gorgeous colours, and the money goes to their charity "A Colorful Cause", which is raising money for Epidermolysis Bullosa. You can read more here and here and here :) Thanks Annemarie :)
Speaking of online friends... The gorgeous inside and out Sandra has tagged me with this pretty cool award

The rules:

1. The winner may put the logo on their blog.

2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award.

3. Nominate 10 blogs.

4. Put links to their blogs.

5. Leave a message for your nominees.

So the blogs that make me smile, thinking off the top of my head

But there are so many more, and I also wanted to say that having comments in my inbox makes my heart smile and makes me dash through my emails just to read them, thank you :)

Scrapped this page today, after printing off our holiday photos. Love this photo.

Inspired by Marle and the page she has here I wanted to use the same technique with tearing the page, eyelets and the tied string. I found Marle's blog through The Inspirational Craft Blog, she was featured yesterday.

And that's me and my lot for today :)

Ciao for now
