Well, finally I have some blog candy to share :-) A little late for my bloggerversary but hey, it was the best I could do! My way of saying thanks for all your visits and comments, every one is really appreciated. So, here is a journal made by moi, A5 size (approx 6 x 8") ready for you to fill with colour, random thoughts, paints, crayons, stamps and anything else that takes your fancy. It contains 15 pages (30 sides) some are watercolour and some are card, all bound together with the Zutter bind-it-all. All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and in one week's time (Monday 23rd November) a winner will be picked. If you are a blog lurker don't be shy! Come join in the fun! I shall put all names in a hat and ask one of my children to pick one out (who needs random.org when you have two children with random tendencies in the house?!) I will post worldwide so overseas visitors welcome to participate. No anonymous comments please, I need to be able to contact you.
A few more pics of the cover:
Always good to have a fish lurking somewhere.....
And a few ribbons (I challenge the winner to keep these paint free hee hee!)

Now, here's a few pics of a little girl's birthday party I did at the weekend. Thirteen 8 year olds managed to complete these canvases in about 1 1/2 hours. Not bad eh?! The images came from the fabulous Lisa's Altered Art and don't they look gorgeous? :
I love working with children, they don't think too hard, they just 'do'. Sometimes I wish I could go back to that carefree way of creating instead of painstakingly agonising over every step.
Here's a close up of Charlie's lovely canvas with its autumnal colours:
