Pure Bliss;-) (...and blog hop winners)

I am greeting you from my "happy place" in Plettenberg Bay.  Again I have to start with an apology that I have I have not been blogging or reading blogs.  Life got rather hectic shortly after Stefan was born and I had to climb a mountain of paper work before we could leave for our week vacation.  I initially didn't think I would even get to blogging while on holiday.  The weather in Plett has been amazing.  I don't know what it is about this place, but the moment I get here it is as if the load I carry disappears and I am so relaxed and so happy.  This morning DH announced that he will be playing golf today and I saw it as a golden opportunity to blog, announce the winners of the recent Sketch Support blog hop and lastly share with you another happening in my life that I find very exciting.

             I love reflections.
                                 ...and different ways of looking at things.                                
A butterfly?

Okay, enough with messing around and onto the winners of the blog hop.  I used to get a random fair draw...first up for the single page layout book is:
The second lucky winner of the traveling sketches book is:

Congratulations Mandy and Linda, will you please e-mail your postal addresses to me at so that I can send your books to you.

Lastly I have been chosen to be part of the Design Team for The Scrapbook Studio in Jeffreys Bay. You can go and read the announcement on the Design Team on their blog.  I am so blessed to be designing with such a talented group of scrap artists.

Now I am off to go and read your latest blog posts and catch up on what is happening in the bloggy world.
