Hello friends
I always like to bring you something on a Friday and while I'm not quite back to 
Friday Die Days, how about a giveaway?

I have TWO pre-loved sets of these, both perfectly usable.
I went through my images and discovered I had used them on this scrapbook page as a base
for Spiral Blossoms Four and also to create a fancy lace border at the base.
Grand Decorative Circles One is also featured - love those too!
Just leave me a comment and Bella (who is the scruffiest dog on the planet right now -
her stylist is still not back to work!) will make the double draw next week.

Also, just a mention various items from the Media Mixage line were featured on Ideal World and
Create and Craft this week - I do have bezels, dies, blanks and texture plates for sale.
As always, feel free to email if you are interested or need further information.
Have a brilliant weekend - I actually put my washing out yesterday, first time this year!
Take care.

Morning Christine,
With all that's going on you still think of others, I love these dies and think the scrapbook page is amazing. I am in awe of Scrapbookers the very thought sends shivers right through me.
As I already possess these dies - please do not include me in the draw - they need to go to a home of there own.

Rosie said...

I would love to win the dies. More importantly I am pleased you are blogging and staying positive.

Lacelady said...

I must have missed those C&C shows about the bezels etc., but I'd love it if Bella chose me to have the dies. I hope Elliott isn't too worn out with his Potter exploits.

Wilma Brown said...

Good Morning Christine,
Glad you and Elliott enjoyed Harry Potter, loved seeing the photo's. Perhaps Elliott could do another post and let us know a bit more about it.

Sandra said...

Good morning Christine,
It isn't quite as gusty here today so may chance getting the washing on the line, I considered it yesterday but the thought of chasing my 'rather ample' knickers down the road rather put me off! We are at an Raf station here Nd I could picture the news of aircraft being confused by 'oversized wind sock' haha
Lovely scrapbook layout of Elliott and Mitchell x
Love those pretty dies too xx
Have a relaxing. weekend dear friend x
Big squidgy hugs,
Sandra xx

nattyboots said...

Valerie said...

Hi Christine, after your experience at Harry Potter we have decided to take our son and daughter in law there for a visit. So glad you had a great day. Would love to win your dies and make a page as good as yours. Keep smiling, Valerie

val jones said...

Hi Christine. Loving the page with your boys and Bella. The border looks divine and of course the butterflies have to be there!

Little Gracie was clipped yesterday. She looks like a shorn sheep and very puppyish but it's better in this weather.

Thanks for the chance to win the dies.

Love Val in Spain xxx

SUE said...

Wendy L said...

Wow these are gorgeous, everytime I see a SPellbinder I want it. That charm on your creation is so beautiful too. xxx

marg said...

Hello Christine!
Lovely day, and lovely pictures!
The weather is improving, so must everything else..Yes!
I had washing on the line too.... the whole country must have been blowing in the wind LOL!
My problem is the Blackbirds nesting in the hedge, they get worried when the sheets clap in the wind.
Take care

Sue Yorkshire said...

H Christine. Love the dis but never got rounds to adding them my collection

Love the scrapbook page you have done. I think scruffy dogs are sweet and look so adorable. When we had our dog, who looks like a shaggy rug on legs at times I loved the shaggy look when he had been clipped he looked so miserable, think its. The long hair flying behind when he ran made him look so full of zest

I didn't get my laundry out yesterday mind if I had hung it out I don't think I would have had anything to iron, we had winds of 60 miles an hour!

Hope you have a good weekend


Maggieann said...

Hello Christine, Thank you so much for the chance of winning the dies. I hope that everything is progressing well with Elliott and you are getting all the help and support that you all need. Dont forget though, that YOU need looking after too and we would all understand if you couldnt blog every day.

Stay positive, we are all thinking about you and your family

Janice said...

Hi Christine, What a treat you are giving us this time. I wondered if you could roll the long strip up on the die and create a flower? - like you do with spiral blossoms?.
Have a good weekend, you might have to put Bella's hair up in a ponytail if it gets too long !! If you do take a photo of her. Janice xx
P.s Don't forget we're doing "gelli plate" technique at Sally's on Wed. She is going to be teacher !! Do come and join us if you can. xx

Rose in Chester said...

Ditto SusieB.
Those dies are really lovely, I've already got them so IF BY ANY SMALL MIRACLE MY NAME IS DRAWN, please redraw again for some other lucky person to get them.
I also hung my washing out a couple of days ago, for the first time this year - LOVE the smell of washing dried outside.
Have a good weekend with you family.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, WOW your layout is amazing, love it, and amazing how Mitchell and Elliott are sooooo similar, facially, they are like 'two peas in a pod'.
Lovely giveaway, thank you so much for the chance to win, I already own these dies, so please don't put me in the draw.
I absolutely adore those bezels, I saw Hels shows and was fascinated with all the gorgeous samples, they look divine.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine, I love the scrapbook page, a lovely family photo. I must admit, I do keep looking at scrapbooking as I have so many photos but I don't think I can plan a page as good as this one or others that I have seen.

Have a good weekend, hope it's a restful one.

Hope to see you soon, take care
Sally xx

Maggie said...

Washing? What's that? Far too busy having a play with all the new stuff around. I will start scrapbooking really soon, but it's quite daunting when you see lovely pages like yours. Have a great weekend. xx Margaret

Hi Christine. Lovely scrapbook page. Lovely dies. I booked tickets for HP for the kids inset day next Friday but can't get in until 4.30. Still it's only 25 mins down the road. I think I'll be cutting hearts and circles this weekend in preparation for a "workshop" next weekend making my niece's wedding invitations. Have a great weekend. Ju

Love these dies they have been a favourite of mine for along time now, just never seemed to get enough cash together to purchase them. Thank you for the chance to win these pre-loved dies (great expression) Fingers crossed. Linda xxx

Toni said...

What a lovely scrapbook page Christine. The photo of the boys is lovely. I've not tried scrap booking because I don't think I could decide which of my photo's to feature. So many to choose from since the digital age came on the scene.
I love the bezels too. I think they might be really useful for jewellery making as well.
Thank you again for the giveaway chance, it's very kind of you.
