Merry Christmas and A Happy Kwanzaa too...

Christmas Eve Freebies...
Oh how exciting, it's officially Christmas Eve here in BooLand UK and I'm like a kid in a Toy Shop. LOL.... We kicked off the holidays with my 12 year old neice, Holly's birthday party which was a blast. Holly's Mum, April and Aunty Tracey (My Sisters) dressed as the Christmas dinner, I kid you not.... April was the Turkey and Tracey the Christmas Pud. I nearly split my sides laughing. Hopefully, my nephews will post me the you tube link they got of the action soon so you can all have a good laugh with me, hehehe.
Elly dressed as Darth Vader, bless..... which impressed all the boys and left the girls in dismay hehe. Most of the girls were dressed as pretty fairies or angels but not our Elly, you'll not catch her in a dress.... My sister Margi entertained us all with her version of Rudolph, hmmmmm, hehehehe, it was 'interseting'?! I hid under the table along with mum and Margi's older children, Jenni and Bob. We at least had some sense. April and Tracey were not quite so lucky and got dragged up to 'harmonise'. OMG, do I actually 'know' these people wahhhhhwahaha!
Well, ASDA (Walmart uk style) just opened its doors at 1 miute past midnight so I am off to give Santa a helping hand with Elly's stocking fillers. Then Jay is dragging himself up at 4am to go to Tesco's to finish the Christmas food shop. Lucky me gets to lie in bed and get waited on over Christmas. Not only is he doing the shopping, he's cooking dinner AND washing up after.Oh for the sweet life... hehe. It brings to mind an old Christmas song, 'I wish it could be Christmas Every Day', you bet I do, hehe.
I wanted to leave you with a little treat before I take my Christmas leave and wish you all a Wonderful Holiday Season. Thank you one and all, for your wonderful support over the past year and for all those truly up-lifting comments you leave me. You guys know I'm a sucker for a kind word, hehe.
I wish you all you wish for yourselves and more. May next year see all your wishes come true and when you have a moment or two to spare, I'd love for you to stop by and visit with me. Don't forget to stop by DID for some last minute Christmas Eve goodies. Trust me, you guys are in for a treat.

So, without futher ado, here are my little gifts for you. The first is a DID Colour Challenge mini Kit. Yeah, I know I did the wrong colour challenge, this is the first one, hehe, but hey, its Christmas and I'm running behind with everything. I'll catch up..... I hope?! LOL. You'll find the link here Sorry, you missed it

And the second is for all those of you who celebrate Kwanzaa. Here's the links for you. Kwanzaa1 and Kwanzaa2. I wish you joy and peace at this very special time of year. Sorry, you missed it

Enjoy, have fun and come and visit soon. Love to you all and a special hug for my wonderful Blossoms. You guys have been doing an awesome job. Thank you all so much. We'll see you all in the New Year. Mwahhhhhhhhhhh.

Introducing My Team, and a Mega Freebie......

Finally, I made it. Phew, its been a very busy time for me but I finally got my team together and what a team they are.Please help me to welcome all our Blossoms to BooLand.

It was very hard to choose from the tons of wonderful applicants, soooooo much harder then I'd expected. I wish I'd been able to take everyone but of course, that just wasn't possible so for those of you who didn't make the team this time round, thank you all so very much for applying and, as my fellow Designer at SAS is always saying, 'Keep shooting for the moon, you may land amoungst the stars' and is there any place better?

Hehehe, come on, you all know I'm a tease right? Did you think I'd make it that easy??? You'll have to read through the post to find the link for this kit. Gotta get my kicks somehow now don't I?! Don't worry, I promise not to make it toooooooo hard, hehehehehe.....

Blinkie Winners

Yeah............. We have our Blinkie Winners. Please give a big round of appluse to Bobbie and Donna for their gorgeous entries.

You can check out round three of the contest here and to download all of the FREE kits, just pop along and register here. Its that simple.

Don't forget to check out our SAS-y Designers Blogs. As usual, the SAS-y Girls have got some awesome treats for you.

Let's spread some Christmas Love

Remember Miracle on 34th Street?

Now, I usually have too much to do to be able to sing the praises of Designers who are not from the forums I'm in but I have to shout about this lady (yes Kim, I use the term 'Lady with reserve, lol)

KimB of DSO

Why am I shouting about Kim? Well, even though she supports South Africas Rugby team and they beat us in the final I forgive her for this transgression because I LOVE this lady's talent and more importantly, her enthusiasm. She positively BEAMS fun and laughter and thats something to shout about, wouldn't you agree? Nothing ever seems to phase Kim. She's always so chipper and cheeky in the nicest way that its a joy to visit her blog and DSO for her Colour Challenge, which as you guys know, I love doing. So, KIM, thank you for being an inspiration to me. Keep smiling and making us laugh. You make the world a brighter place.

Ok, she'll be going mad now that I've gushed, hehehe but I think just because we are not on the same team doesn't mean we can't appreciate anothers talent and the fun they bring to the community.

Kim's just released her December Grab Bag which you can check out here. I'm not going to tell you whats in it but lets just say, I have it and its FANTASTIC so go grab it while its on sale.

My Blossoms show it off...

Now, before I go, what do you mean, thank goodness? I say, the I want to share with you some of the fantastic lo's my Blossoms have created for me using my Winter Moon Kit which you can get over at SAS, CLD and DID. A little secret for ya'll. DID are soon to be having a GRAND OPENING SALE so keep that in mind, wink wink......

Diane, Claudette and Christina

Amy, Aldercreek and Sharpli

Petra, Pam and Lois

Erika and Lea

Just a small selection of the awesome talent these girls have.

That's all for now folks. Be sure to come back soon for tons more goodies.

Oh..............OK, you can grab the Blossoms kit here, (Sorry Folks, you missed it this time but you can grab it at my stores for a real cool price)hehehe. Password is mygirls Have fun and be sure to grab all of the zips. It wasn't that hard was it, lol.

A Quick UpDate

Hi everyone.

I just wanted you to know I havn't forgotten its the 7th today and I'm meant to be announcing my CT team and the winners of my Blinkie competition.

I've been snowed under with various things and trying to pull it all together so it makes some kind of sense for you all, not an easy job, lol.

What I can tell you is that I now have my CT team. I'm just getting things organised with them and I'll be making that announcement VERY soon. Thank you to everyone who applied. WOW, I was amazed by the response and the fantastic work. It was great to be able to look through so many Galleries and blogs etc. I have to admit, this was the hardest job i've had to do in a long time. The standards were so high and everyone so lovely but decisions had to be made. If only I could have had you all, I'm such a greedy gal.

We also have a winner, well, 2 actually for our Blinkie Competition. I'll be contacting them as soon as I get their prize sorted, a choice of any kit from my store. Thank you again to everyone who entered. I wanted to keep you all but that would'nt have been fair. I got Elly to choose the winners for me and I think she chose wonderfully. You'll be seeing those winners here very very soon so keep your eyes open for that.

Don't forget that Round 2 of the SAS-y Designer contest is now in full swing and I've seen som awesome kits already. These are all available for you to download free so get on over to SAS and join up now for a mega feast of awesome freebies.

I'll be back on Monday with some Fantastic news about Do It Digi as well as a host of gorgeous layouts from the super SAS store CT team. Those girls are so cool.

Christmas is all wrapped up at your local SAS-y Blogs

Check out the SAS-y Designers blogs while you're about. I happen to know one or three of them have some fan-dabbi-doozey goodies there just waiting to be grabbed. Need a clue, try SKrapper, Lisa West and Candee for starters and then there's Terrell , PillowGirl and DigiTreats. Oh, did I mention JulieO and Darlene too and even though PhreePhorm has been having a tough time with the loss of her dear pet dog and a very naughty pute too she still manages a little treat for you all. Hmmmm..... naughty me! I have nothing today. Guess I'll just have to make it up to ya'll next time huh?!

Hey, only if you're real good. hehehehehehe

Be back soon so hang in. The news is ALL good at BooLand

Hugs and have a wonderful Weekend
