Happy 1st of June and my June Giveaway!







Happy June!
Half way through the year!!  Oh my goodness!!!
I'm sure the older you get the faster time flies - it
certainly seems like that to ME anyhow :)  So before 
I carry on showing you my latest projects I'm just putting
up my June Giveaway - finally I'm more organised this month!


*** I forgot to add that there is a whole pack of rather exotic
 REAL guinea fowl feathers in there too!***

I have all sorts of goodies here and have added some text 
to make it easier to see what's what.  Some stuff is old but
I've added in some stuff that I've bought 'specially for you
to make it up into a pretty kit.  I'm not including 12" papers
and I never send those out in envelopes, it just doesn't work
 internationally and the paper gets pitted and messed up 
& the post here is VERY expensive for boxes - even 
more than USPS so I have another plan for that!

I've been making up concertina flowers with my older papers
and they are making such cool looking embellishments, so
I will be adding those into my giveaways soon - so glad I can
find a way to make use of those papers - particularly the 
prints that are just far too gaudy for my taste these days, yet
put them on a white space layout and they'll be like KAPOW!!

Giveaway Rules {What you need to do to win}

1.  You need to be a follower of my blog.

2.  You need to leave me a comment telling me how approximately
long you've been following my blog and where you originally 
"found" me, as far as you can remember! (this is just for my
interest and won't prejudice you as it's a random draw!}

3.  You need to post my giveaway image into your sidebar OR
into a post on your blog - together with a link to my blog, 
telling people that I have a giveaway running until the end of June.

4.  You need to come back to THIS POST (I will keep it linked
up in the sidebar so all you need to do is CLICK ON THE IMAGE
to get back to here) to leave ANOTHER COMMENT saying you
 have posted it and paste in the link into the comment so I 
can check up on you :)

A BIT MORE THAN USUAL BUT YOU HAVE THE WHOLE MONTH!

OPEN INTERNATIONALLY TO ANYONE
ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD AS ALL GOOD GIVEAWAYS
SHOULD BE DON'T YOU AGREE?!?

Giveaway Closes Saturday 30 June midnight EST
and the winner will be announced on Monday July 2nd

Open to anyone who has NOT already won a RAK 
from me in the past so everyone gets a chance :)

Lizzy Hill said...

Hiya Helen, I've only been a member for a month or maybe two...came by via the Marvellous Mitra... AND I have already posted about your giveaway in my sidebar..that way it's visible for the whole month so more peeps see it & I've less chance of winning it. Makes perfect sense, yes????!!!!!!

Keren Tamir said...

Hi Helen!! I don't know if its fair if I enter this challenge. Although I only know you since September when I joined BITW, I've seen your layouts at OUAS before. That's quite a generous RAK. I'm curious about those feathers as I need to find some for a challenge next month. I'll post your giveaway on my blog anyways!! hugz

wow! You are really making us work for this one, aren't you?! hehehe I don't mind one tiny bit - by the look of all the beautiful goodies in that picture, it is well worth it!!! Thanks so much for the chance to win Helen! Now to answer your question, i don't quite know when i started following you, probably something like 6 months ago? And i don't remember where i found you either (really bad, isn't it?), but i'm guessing on the Scrap That! blog. All i know is that i've been a regular visitor ever since! :)
