Giveaway winner and 'Hands On' layout

Many thanks to everyone who entered my Giveaway this week, and a big hello and welcome to my new followers! I'm not sure what's going to happen when Google takes away Google Reader. GFC may soon disappear too, so I did add a Google+ gadget to the side of my blog, in case you'd like to follow your blogs that way.

Now for the winner of this fun stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop:

THE WINNER IS Amy#8456(TheTigersHaven)!
Congratulations! Please send me your mailing address at and I'll get the stamps sent out your way!

Now for a layout to share. The Scrappy Friends' Challenges were calling to me this month, I managed to complete 2 out of the 4 challenges:

Kerys ~ Recipe Challenge (use at least 3 patterned papers, washi tape and twine)
Rochelle ~ Pinspiration photo

To create my layout, I divided it into three horizontal sections(inspired by Rochelle's photo), concentrating the photos and patterned papers in the center section.
I've found that I haven't been using my 6x6 paper pads very much, so just grabbed some American Crafts 'Soho Garden' and started to layer a few papers to coordinate with my photos. I then embellished with washi tape, stickers and some buttons and twine. Pretty simple, really, but all those vibrant colors in the papers give the page a great feel.

You can find me at the Sweet Stamp Shop blog tomorrow! 
Have a good weekend everyone.
