Have Time ... Will Travel!

I have actually been travelling today ... still Sunday as I type this ... well Just ... if I am honest! I popped over to sunny Milton Keynes for the Grand Opening of Lovely Lin's beeeeeeeautiful workshop! Oh Boy do I have workshop envy now!
Anyways ... Marvellous Mark did a magnificent job of the BBQ ... it looked a bit shaky at one point ... I say Shaky ... I actually mean ... erm ... Smokey ... but the food was cooked to perfection ... not a burnt bit in sight ... most impressive! And the sun came out and everything!
Now ... back to Monday ... it is indeed time for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... the theme this week is travel. I masked lots of Lord Tim of Holtz's Hotel Labels stamps ... you know Tim ... the man that can walk on water while administering brain surgery to a great white shark with just a doodad and a tiny piece of tissue tape!
If you head on over to the challenge site you will indeed see all the details for the challenge along with details of the magnificent $50 shopping voucher you could win frm our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp!
Not only that ... but you have more time to enter this week ... because ... For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays. Be sure to check out the site on August 31st to start the hop. It will run through September 5th. Simon Says Stamp is offering some great prize packages, and there will be other opportunities to win some blog candy, too!
I must away ...
I can hear my lovely pillows calling ...
Laters!
