Give Away!

The entries are now closed, winner will be announced shortly.

Pfff I feel like I have been gone forever! But I am back :-)
I've borrowed a camera for the time being so I can take pictures again I was in serious withdrawal ha ha!
A little while back I reached a 100 followers, thank you all so much for taking the time to read and comment on my little blog! I also celebrated my birthday last saturday so I'd say this calls for a give away!


Give Away! 1


Do you like scraps? I love them! They are so versatile and I never feel nervous about cutting into them. There's lots of great scraps in here for you. A few wee bits but most are pretty decent sized some fat quarters or close to that. There's some solids but mostly prints by Denyse Schmidt, Moda, Laurie Wisbrun and more. So lots for you to play around with and create wonderfulnes.
To enter:
I like my give aways nice and simple so leave me a comment on this post to enter. To make things more fun for me to read please tell me a random fact about yourself.
Anyone anywhere can enter you do not have to be a follower of my blog to play. But for a second entry just leave me a seperate comment if you're a follower or become one.
You want more entries? Blog or Tweet my give away and leave a third comment to tell me you did :-)
The give away ends Monday 21st of March.

Good luck!

x Leila

    Random fact... I drink my coffee with the ground beans in the mug. It's a combination of being to lazy to wash out a coffee machine and needing a very QUICK caffeine hit first thing in the morning.
