Something Completely Different challenge - butterflies

I realised doing this challenge that I really have way too many butterfliy images to choose from!

So this week at Something Completely Different we had a theme of "butterfly" and direction for a twinchie. I'm assuming a twinchie is 2x2 inches? LOL so well I do all mine in 12x12.. so just  imagine it shrunk to a 2x2 ok!

Soartful Challenge - fragrance

The challenge this week from Soartful Challenges was the word fragrance, along with the perfume bottle below, must admit to not feeling very inspried by the theme - I'm not a very girly girl maybe thats why!

Blog Giveaway

Well it's my own fault, my week got busy and I really didn't do very much to promote my giveaway, lesson learned. On the plus side though, I decided that both the lovely people who left comments on my giveaway blog can have the prize.

Sharing the love

Now I know I'm personally relatively new to Blogging but I have been an avid follower, bookmarker and devourer of many fantastic blogs for quite a while, and this morning it dawned on me (as I was doing my usual morning look through my fave blogs) that I should really share some with you.

The thought being that nearly all of these fave blogs of mine, I have found through somebody elses recommendation or link on another blog.

The Feathered Nest - Awesome home decor ideas and inspriation, a regular blogger - always something new and interesting!

Blooming Ideas - some fabulous craft and decor ideas - always has superb links to other blogs.

Creative Home Expressions - LOTS of thrifty decor ideas, beautifully done.

Just Something I Made - The ultimate decor/craft/art/insprational blog - I don't know HOW she crams as much creative work into her week as she does. Totally a MUST BOOKMARK!

Trash2Treasure - I want everything in every picture on this blog. Great if you want some motivation to go paint something!

Soartful Challenges

Soartful Challenges had a pretty broad theme to this weeks challenge of Bouquet. Luckily I have a gazillion flowery bouquet-ish images and came up with this piece. I am in love with this colour combination and the frame will probably get used again like this.
