CKCB Blog Hop & A Giveaway!

Welcome to my part of the CKCB Member's blog hop.
You probably arrived here from the Southern Hemisphere and Julene's blog

As well as participating in the CKCB hop today 
I'm celebrating my first anniversary as a UK Scrapper
and that means a giveaway!

This is the layout that I created using the February Counterfeit Kit.

Click here to see how I put the kit together.

The February challenge was to create a project 
about something we love
 but no photographs were allowed
 only journalling.

Normandie cows, my neighbours!
Thanks for joining me on my first CKCB blog hop.
Your next hop is going to take you thousands of miles away from Normandy
back to the Antipodes to Mandy's blog
A Teacup of Scrapisms also in Australia!

But before you go, take a look at this amazing kit
 that I put together for one lucky visitor to just scrapping.
The kit contains
2 x 12 " pp Marrakesh basic grey
2 x 12" double sided pp Bloom & Grow MME
1 x 12" double sided pp American Crafts
1 red & 1 blue 12" cardstock
2 chevron patterned paper bags
2 French shipping tags
1 new sheet AC thickers "delight"
1 new sheet Crate Paper Fourteen accent stickers
and a variety of buttons, brads, feathers & assorted embellies.
All you have to do to have this stash of goodies heading your way soon
is to leave a comment on this post before 28th February.
The winner will be picked at random and announced here on this blog
on Friday 1st March.

Right, off you go back to Oz and don't forget
 if you get lost along the way
you will find the full blog hop list on CKCB.
Click here to get there and start hopping again.

Happy hopping.
