About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

I've got an Award...

Claire of  http://clairescraftycreations.blogspot.com/ has awarded me the

 My Blog has Attitude! Blog Award.

She has been given this opportunity as she has just been chosen as a GD for the Digi's with Attitude Blog. Check out her blogspot as Claire does some lovely work.

Now I am also able to give 5 of my readers this fab blog award! And this is not just ANY blog award! This one comes with a $5 Gift Certificate! Yippee!!

In order to qualify for the $5.00 Digi's With Attitude! Gift Certificate you must state 3 things that make you different from everyone else and you must nominate 5 blogs, then let those 5 blogs know you nominated them. Lastly, you must display the Blog Award Badge (above) in your sidebar and link it back to the Digi's With Attitude! Challenge Blog.

For all the details please visit THIS LINK
Note: If someone got this LAST year, they are again eligible for the Gift Certificate again as it is one Gift Certificate per person, per blog, per year.

OK, so 3 things that make me different from everyone else:

1. I am ME, no-one else can be ME, only I can be ME 
2. I believe in what is meant to be will be
3. I believe in the power of positive thoughts

Now to choose 5 blogs. I get lots of inspiration from so many wonderful bloggers but not everyone is into Digital Images but I'm passing this award on to:
