A quick apology, a link up and a winner!

I took part in Sian's 'The Great Big Swap of Very Small Things' and received a wonderful parcel from Sandie - it was quite a large parcel as Sandie lives only about 5 miles away and hand delivered the parcel to me! I took a photo of all the wonderful stash she sent me - papers, old book pages, washi tape, punched bits and pieces and oh so much more and then put it carefully all away. I have already used some of the papers and embellishments. So, I thought it was time to put the photo onto my blog and thank Sandie for my stash and Sian for arranging the swap. Only when I came to upload the photo it seems to have been deleted! I have searched the memory card from top to bottom and it is not there! I can't take the photo again as the stash is scattered around my scraproom. So, I am sorry Sandie! But thank you so much for my stash - it is lovely! And thank you Sian for arranging the swap.

So, I am also linking up today to Rinda, as I am taking part in her Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt.
This is the first year I have joined in and I am really looking forward to finding all the items on the list. Do hop on over to her blog to see the list of items - are you joining in too?

And now for the winner of my 500th birthday blogpost. And the winner, chosen by putting all the names in Penny's hat and drawing it out is..... 


And as you will see from the video I picked a runner up prize to whom I will also send a little package of yumminess and that is:


Please send me your postal addresses to gotchfamily@btinternet{dot}com.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and here's to another 500 posts!

Shame about your photo. I started using part of my swap parcel before I remembered to photograph it and had to stop myself. haha.

LOVE the video - so nice to hear your voice again! ;o)
