It's August Promotion Time with a blog hop!!!

Hi everyone and welcome if you've joined me from Sarah's blog.

Wow what a whirl these past few weeks have been. My little girl, or rather not so little girl has left primary school having taken part in an amazing leavers assembly and is now set to start at 'BIG' school in September. My little boy moves up to junior school, but will I suspect still win prizes or detentions for his stories! His parting shot from school was to take in a plastic dinosaur skeleton for show and tell. He tried to tell the teacher and his classmates that he'd been on an archaelogical dig and found it and that it was at thousands of years old!! That nearly tops when he told his nursery teacher that his granny used to live in a castle until she fell off the wall and the dragon ate her!!!

Now on to other exciting things! Well exciting for all of us who love to stamp! There is 20% discount on selected two step stamp sets for the whole of August from Stampin' Up! In addition to that I am offering a free mystery gift to anyone who spends £20 during August. Don't forget that if you spend £25 you can also get a token for my loyalty scheme which gives you a free stamp set when you've collected 10 tokens!
To give you some inspiration I'm part of a blog hop showcasing some of the stamp sets on offer.
The blog hop was organised by Sarah who suggested a scrapbook hop. I'm not a natural scrapper so decided to take up the challenge and have a go. I hope you like what I've done with Greenhouse Garden using melon mambo, bravo burgundy and pretty in pink. The odd mug or saucer was a great way to introduce some circles and markers and the white gel pen work wonders for faux stitching. The rub ons worked well for minimal journaling and a few punched borders outline the pictures. I made a ribbon flower with the bravo burgundy grosgrain ribbon and a pretty in pink button. It brings back special memories of fun times and my youth!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my do I sound old! From me you need to move onto to my great friend and team mate Emma who has used Loads of Love stamp set. Enjoy the hop and don't miss out on this fabulous discount during August!

  5. Hi Zoe,
    Love your scrapbook page it's brilliant, so effective. Like you I am not a scrapper but recently had to make a scrap book for my grandaughter with photos from birth to 3 months old. I found the hardest part was deciding what to do on each page.

  6. Hi Zoe,
    Thanks so much for joining in the blog hop! I really love the hot colour combination you chose, they look great with the photos. The flowery circles with faux stitching are lovely too.
