Good morning my lovely blogging friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are somewhat nearer to being ready for the BIG DAY next week.
I had a busy weekend starting with a surprise visit from my youngest older brother that I hadn't seen for 5.5 years on Saturday.
Then yesterday I had planned some quiet time to sort a few more Christmas things out, to have a little play in my crafty haven and then a good old blog catch whilst catching up on Strictly - but I got a phone call from Aaron asking me to take him Christmas shopping down the Mall so all those plans went out the window.
So by the time I got back from shopping and then caught up with Saturday's Strictly it was just about time to make a quick tea and settle down to watch the results and then the X Factor final.
So it's the start of a new week and also the start of a new challenge over at
and we have another fabulous sketch for you to work with and an optional theme of
GLITTER AND SPARKLE
