"Coming up in August,From screen to scraps first birthday celebrations.There will be a blog hop with PRIZES!!!!.There will be several prizes including kits,vouchers,stamps and other items up for grabs!

Become a follower to my blog between now and the 26th of August(my birthday) and I will send a prize to a randomly drawn new follower."

This post has 2 parts. Firstly an early advertisement for FS2S's blog hop and secondly my own offer of a prize donated by me to any new followers,to be announced on my birthday,totally unrelated to FS2S.If it has caused confusion to anybody I'm sorry. It was done purely to be generous on my behalf.
I chose my winner from my now 40 followers,34 of which came to me from FS2S.I did it by picking a number at random then seeing what follower was that number.

The blog hop prize has not yet been announced so the What's old is new again kit is still to be decided.
My apologies to Shazza who has reprimanded me for announcing a winner(which I have not) and anybody else who is confused.

The lucky person to win my blog prize for my birthday(today).,is Tanstar...Artsy Fartsy Mumma.I thank you all for commenting and joining in the blog hop.It has been great reading all your comments! Just to clarify here this is the prize I have offered and not the one from FS2S blog hop.
I haven't scrapped for nearly 2 weeks and I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms.Hopefully things will get back to normal soon with my health.At least my swollen legs from the aeroplane have gone down now.The dr was worried about DVT but after X-rays yesterday it isn't that.

Returning from Singapore

I've just returned after a busy week's holiday in Singapore. You see I have a friend and her husband living over there for 3 years.The weather was extremely humid,which doesn't agree with my arthritis.I've come home swollen up and in pain.Luckily I'll see my specialist on Tuesday.
On the scrapping front,thank you to all the new people who have become followers during From screen to scrap's blog hop.Good luck with the competitions.I'm also announcing a winner on Thursday(my birthday) for my free blog hop present.

GONK Production line.

I've taken a rest from scrapbooking this week and have been sewing instead. I've made Gonks for an upcoming stall I'm having at an art and craft show this weekend.Luckily I had heaps of buttons ,buckles and dacron as well as material scraps.Hopefully they will sell well.
They were a fashion accessory/toy from the 1960s.
