Winner of the Bank Holiday Giveaway prize ....


We really enjoyed reading all your comments - if only we had lots and lots of prizes to giveaway, but I'm afraid there is only one.  

The winner, who was chosen at random is Lorraine  who said...
These are gorgeous. My daughter is heading off in the morning for a 3 day trip with her primary school.(She's very nervous!) I have promised to do some scrap booking pages with her when she gets home, with any drawing and photos she takes on the trip. These papers and pretty embellies would be perfect for it, and Emma would love them.   Thank you for the chance to win.

Lorraine please contact me with your address within 7 days of this post.  I hope your daughter had a great trip with her school and you both have a great time making some scrapbook pages from her photos and drawings.
