everything else from stash



I would like to enter this into the following Challenges
Sugar Bowl - Sketch

Anything goes - Distressing

Yesterday was so exciting for wee me, with the official opening of my Challenge Blog Dream Valley Challenges, a visit to my Grans and getting my Mum's Birthday Party invites to her! I was that hyper when I went to bed I never slept till after 3 and was awake again from the back of 6 wide awake hee! So tonight it will be a more calming night with Glee, shower and bed!

I hope your going join in with my 1st Challenge, its an easy one for you all ANYTHING GOES and there is some yummy prizes!!

Off now to have a little look around the crafty shops, hubby asked what I would like for my Birthday ............. no idea!! So told me to make a wee list of the things I might fancy! Hmm what do I fancy?? What would you all like?? Ideas please!! I'm off to the SECC on Saturday but that's a Strictly Funky Kits and hopefully Lili of the Valley day hee!!

Have a good day everyone
Hugs Melly

Ps remember I've got Birthday Candy for you all!
