Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Elly is nuch brighter today, thanks for all your lovely messages and good wishes for her. She must, I think, still be a bit 'fuzzy' in the head though as she got a great report at school today and not one but two stickers, wohoooo! LOL.

If you are still having problems. email me again and I'll try and get it fixed for you. I have tested the links myself from here and they appear to be working fine so I don't really know what the problem could be??

Yup, its a short one today and no lo's from my Blossoms to show off. They are on a secret mission, hehe.... so until tomorrow, have a good one.

Something for the weekend....

Well, I didn't think I was going to make it here today and I missed yesterday completely. My poor little poppet, Elly, has been as sick as a dog with a really nasty ear infection. She doesn't very often get sick but when she does, it really hts her and of course, the only comfort is Mum so I've been playing nursy for two days. Thankfully, she seems to be on the mend and is sleeping like a babe at themoment so I'm grabbing some time to pop in, say Hi and leave you all with a little something for the weekend....
And here it is. Yesterdays goodies were this gorgeous floral frame with and without sticker border and these fab beaded page borders. These go perfectly with Day 72's goodies don't you think. Grab them here or click the preview. As always password is 100freebies Enjoy

Day 72 and my Award

Hello all. WOW, I actually took some time out today and did NOTHING on the pc, lol. It felt soooo weird but it sure was nice just to veg out for a bit. Of course, I know I should have been getting on with the pile of washing and some much needed housework and I really should have done some shopping but what the heck, the sofa looked soooo inviting and the tv was begging to be watched, how could I refuse, lol

Still, a whole day without a little scrapping just doesn't do it for me so here I am, in my favourite place and ready to share another great goody form the 100 Days.

Here's Day 72. A cool ribbon belt for your page or photo and this awesome floral border with or without the sticker effect. Pretty nice huh! Grab them here or click the preview. Password is 100freebies Enjoy


Check it out. I've recieved this fantastic Arteypico Award from Jessica at . I am so over the moon about it. Thank you so so much Jessica. This means such a lot to me.

Now, the rules state that I have to nominate 5 deserving buds for this wonderful little trophy and that has been no easy task, let me tell you. If you were nominated, here are the rules for you to pass it on.

For those of you receiving the Award, here are the rules:

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

Make sure you visit the link above. There are crafts of all kinds shown; you are bound to come away inspired!

5) Show these rules.

Here are my five favorites:

  • You all know how much I LOVE that girl. She is such an inspiration to me and I have learned such a lot from her how could I not nominate her as most deserving of this wonderful award. I always do Kims fab colour challenge and she inspired me to run my own colur challenge at SAS which I love doing so...Yup, I know you've already recieved it Kim but you know what they say about the Oscars, you can't have too many hehe. Tag, you're it.

  • Next is the fabulous Ikea Goddess which I know you'll all agree has to be one of the best freebie bloggers going. I love to visit her blog, snag the goodies and find some mojo. And she creates such gorgeous lo's too. Thanks hun for listing me so many times too and bringing all my lovely blog readers this way.

  • JasJul is one of my fellow SAS Designers, a dear friend and a fantastic Designer. She recently began creating a whole zoo series and its the most adorable collection going. Whats more, she is always sending little emails full of hugs and lovely comments which really boost a gals ego, hehe. So hun, this is for you and your constant support, friendship and inspiration.

  • My dear, dear friend Sherah, aka SkrapperDigitals. One of my very first CT duties was to Sherah and I learned so so much from her. Now we work together at SAS and its fantastic. She truly is a super talented lady and a wonderful person and she's always got some darling freebies going on her blog. Big hug to you hun. This ones for you.

  • Kymm aka Creative Chaos works with me at both SAS and CLD and I have to say this is one switched on crazy (much more then me) mama. I mean, she never stops, lol. She is so funny, totally willing to have a go at anything, generous to a fault, and full of wonderful ideas. Her blog is always loaded with goodies and like me, she never knows when to stop filling up those kits, lol. Kymm, this ones for you hun. You might be the baby of the family but you're a fabulous Designer and a lovely lovely girl.

Wow. I would have loved to be able to give this award to loads more but I'm only allowed 5 :(

I hope you all enjoy getting your award as much as I did mine. Thanks again Jessica.

Well girls, thats all from me for now. I'll see you all tomorrow for Day 73 so until then, have fun.
