Bling it up!

Hi there!

I can see that you guys were totally scared off by the sketch challenge last week so this week we have an easy one for you !

and she is offering £10  of goodies for the winner of this challenge bling it up!!

cant get any easier than that can it?

So we have two winners this and  week and a top 3.

And we have two new DT members

I'm married to a retired Marine (the love of my life!), mother to two wonderful boys (ages 13 and 4), and an English teacher at an alternative school for grades 7-12 in my hometown of Batesville, Arkansas.  I've been scrapbooking since my oldest was about three or four years old and discovered card making and altering items a few years ago.  I mainly use some generic markers or colored pencils when coloring my images; just haven't made the jump into Copics or Letraset markers, but I'm sure I will soon.  I love traveling, having visited over half the states in the U.S. and twelve foreign countries.  My other hobbies include reading, photography, NASCAR, NFL (Dallas Cowboys), and Arkansas Razorbacks football & basketball.  One of these days, my husband and I plan to do the "NASCAR tour" by RV!  I am SUPER excited to be on the DT at Through the Purple Haze, and I think there are many days that I am in the "purple haze"!!!


I am a stay at home mum of 2 from Liverpool. my daughter Emilee is 11 and my son Joseph is 8 and they are my world, along with my other half Steven and my dogs and cat. I love crafting and have been card making and scrapbooking since Joseph was born in 2002. I love using my Silhouette and my cricut along with mainly digital images and papers to create my cards. I am a messy crafter and I have to have everything out in front of me so most of the time my craft room is a bin...I know where everything is though and that's the way I like it. 

who we have made really welcome in true Hazelnut style and  we hope you have lots of fun with our merry band of Hazel Nuts!

And the winner of the Stitchy Bear prize is
