Hello everyone
It is hard to believe that it is the first day of Spring 2011!! Down my way the Canola is out already -normally October is the month for Canola on the coast in Victoria!

We have some fantastic sponsors for you this month :

First we welcome Charms Creations if you haven't seen Charm's fantastic hand made embellies take a look hereCharm has generously donated a $20 voucher to spend at her October sale.

Thank you so much Charm! If you have not seen Charm's gorgeous embellishments take a look they are so funky and bright and just fantastic!!

Next we have the fantastic A Lil Somethin'

A Lil' About Us

We are 2 scrapping sisters who love to make and use hand crafted embellishments on our layouts. We both have boys, and have noticed a severe lack of BOY SPECIFIC embellishments available for purchase, so have decided that we might try to fill the void with our hand crafted unique embellishments.

The majority of our products are made using re-purposed materials and a lot of love. We have limited edition sales on a regular basis… so make sure you pop over to our facebook page and “like” us to get the latest updates on when and what they are.

We are thrilled to be sponsoring Show Us Your Stuff and look forward to seeing the gorgeous layouts you all create.
Thank you Wendy and Susan for donating a lovely pack of your fabulous goodies for September!

Also we have a fabulous $50 pack of ribbons from Craft Queen

Have you seen the fantastic range of ribbons and buttons Craft Queen has in stock - just perfect for all those hand made embellishments!
Thanks to all our September sponsors for their generosity.
Don't forget to visit their stores to keep up with their sales and new products.
