A big thank you to everyone that entered. So here is the November one and this month, the prize is a beauty! All you have to do is use some MHC flowers or some of the gorgeous paper from The Scrapcake to enter :))

And have you seen these?? They are some of the new Summer Collection which are about to hit the stores anytime soon! Keep your eyes out for them, you don't want to miss out...they are stunners! Says me who already has them!! WAHOO!!!

And here is one of my latest layouts for Manorhouse...

I used the gorgeous (oh they are so pretty) papers from The Scrapcake - The Bright Side of plenty of beautiful blooms.  This is another layout I did for my SIL of my beautiful little niece :))

Loving Life with you by my side...

Okay I am going to try and do a big catch up today with you all.  I haven't been around much lately...I have been busy with life as usual and helping out at the Kindy.  I have some baking to do today for the Kindy's garage sale on Saturday!!
