Good morning . This week it's my turn to choose the theme for the Allsorts challenge and I challenge you to make anything but a card. The DT have come up with some beautiful, inspirational projects and I can't wait to see what you and your creative juices come up with too.
We have a great sponsor this week in A Passion for Stamps and Ruth is offering 1 lucky winner, picked by the opportunity to win these beautiful stamps:

I thought I would take the opportunity to make a few last minute Christmas gifts and I found a really simple recipe for Sugar Body Scrubs:


  1. 400g Granulated Sugar
  2. 150ml Sunflower Oil
  3. A little powdered food colouring (available from cake-making shops)
  4. 6-8 drops of Essential Oils (I made Lavender, Lemon & Orange scrubs)


  1. Mix the food colouring into the sugar - you only need a light colour change at this stage as it will darken when you add the oil.
  2. Add the Sunflower Oil and mix together well.
  3. Add the drops of Essential Oils
  4. It should sort of 'clump' together and fall off the spoon in lumps.
  5. Spoon scrub into a min. 400ml airtight jar (I purchased mine from Ikea for 89p)
  6. Decorate jar as required.

Would love to know if you decide to give this a try and what you think of it. I was impressed with how easy it was - but I think it makes a lovely gift - don't you?

Hope you have a great weekend.
