The brilliant new inspirational blog, Scrapology - Adventures in Scrapbooking, is offering a prize each month for the layout voted the best scraplift. And this month it is this Craft Mates Embellishment Caddy.
The August scraplift is entitled 'A is for Aperture', and when you see the layout all will become obvious. It is based on a layout by Design Team member, Anita Macdonald, and she will have the unenvious job of choosing the winnner this month.
So take a look at the blog and get your thinking caps on and submit your layout to be in with a chance to win.
At the crop last weekend there was talk of Jane Gill's flower class and the delicious Chocolate Fridge Cake that she bought along. There was some speculation about how it was made and how to get the recipe and then I remembered my late sister-in-law, Rita's, Tiffin. I contacted Rachel, who has the recipe, and went to Tesco this morning and got the ingredients and made some Tiffin.
Here is the recipe if you would like to try it girls.
Melt 4 oz butter or marg, together with 2 oz drinking chocolate, 2 tbsp golden syrup and 2 tbsp condensed milk. Stir well until combined. Crush, but not too finely, 8 oz Rich Tea biscuits in a large bowl and pour the chocolate mix over and stir well till the biscuits are coated. Press into a square tin. Melt 8oz milk chocolate and then swirl over the biscuit base. Put in a fridge till set, cut into sqaures and then indulge yourself, but be warned - it is seriously sweet.
Well that is Scrapology- adventures in scrapbooking. This is a new inspirational blog set up by lovely Lynn Cooper and Linda Fitzsimmons and will be launched on Monday. She has a real a coup in recruiting some amazing designers for her Design Team. Each month she will provide a sketch from a scraplift and bloggers will be invited to submit their uplift from the sketch. This month, August, it is from a layout by Anita Macdonald and here is my take on her layout. (I hope this is OK to show this beforehand, Lynn) The picture is quite small as I am still trying to get to grips with this new computer. *groan*
Oh and I mustn't forget here is the way to the Scrapology blog
Please do come in and have a look around. This will be mainly a scrapbooking blog showing products available but also with other things thrown in. I am hoping that you will find something of interest to you, so pull up a chair and stay a while.
