Shop til You Drop

Good morning all, the sun is shining and compared to yesterday when it felt like winter was on the way it's very pleasant.

Last week we had a smaller number of entries than usual but the quality was up to the normal high standard, as promised the cd we are giving away was chosen by and this week the winning number is number 1, so Michelle send us your address and we'll get your prize of to you as soon as we can.

This week it's my turn to choose the theme and I've chosen Shop til You Drop so hopefully you will have something in your collection to allow you to join in with us.

Caz had totally forgotten about her top three for on the beach and she had trouble choosing her winners but she has narrowed it down and her final choice is;
# 9 Marina
# 5 Jane Willis
# 6 Michelle JM
 So Marina you seem to be doing something right and we love your entries so keep them coming.

Now onto this week and Anne is still with us, she has come up trumps again so we'll start with her card.

As you can see the Frou Frou cd has come into it's own this week but there are lots of images out there to use and we hope you like what we've done. Sadly Christine has no internet due to a major mess up by her provider and Wendy is away on holiday so we are a couple short but I'm sure there is enough inspiration for you with the rest of the team's effort'

Please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
Finally the most important bit - Have Fun!
