About Me

My Photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my great partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to my new grand daughter born july 2012. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson born Nov 2013 to my elder Son. I love the bones of these kids. Thanks. xxxx

Allsorts 5th Birthday Blog Hop

Good MoRning All
This week it is Allsorts 5th  BiRthday (and it is mine in 3 days time too) so double celebration!!!!!
And now a triple celebration as it is Noahs ChRistening tomorrow too.

We are having a BLOG HOP and all the details are on the challenge blog, you  have to visit each DT members blog and collect a letter, then use each letter to fill in this grid - you have been given a letter to start you off.
_ _ _ _        _ A _ _ _ _

When you have all the letters and worked out the phrase,  please email Brenda (details on  the Allsorts blog)
The prize for this is a pack of Promarkers.
 Can you guess what my letter  is?
*****
We have an extra prize on each blog and a winner will be chosen from the comments left for me before 2pm GMT Friday 30th may and the winner will be announced on the challenge blog at Teatime on Friday.
***********
So we want to see Birthday cards or creations, easy peasy.




I love making these box cards as you may have guessed if you are a regular visitor.  You can just go to town on embellishing them.
The picture below shows it with the box I made for it to go into.
I made this one as a commission for a special birthday and that's what this is for Allsorts today.


There are loads of sponsors  and  prize along the way on each DT members blog, so lots happening, hop over to the challenge blog to see what is going on and where to start the hop, or if you have got lost along the way.  You should have reached me from Brenda and next on the hop is Mervi.  Each of us is displaying a letter, collect them all and then email Brenda (details on Challenge blog) with your answer.  And you must leave a comment for me to qualify for my prize.(pic below)
