Blogtoberfest: The Finale (and a last chance to win!)

Edited to say: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

31st Blogtober is here - and I did it!! Was there ever really any doubt lol? So today is your last chance to enter my Blogtoberfest giveaway and my 100th post giveaway. Now, I said that both giveaways would close at 12 midnight tonight GMT, but as I won't be able to pick any winners till tomorrow afternoon, and as the time difference for some readers makes things more complicated anyway, you can basically enter up until the point where I edit this post to say 'Giveaway now closed!' which won't be till about lunchtime tomorrow... Have I overcomplicated that enough?!

Fancy another entry? Leave a comment on this post telling me what you're most looking forward to in November and I'll put your name into both draws one extra time :-)

As for me, what I'm looking forward to is:

Blogging for Scrapbookers (starts Monday!! Yay!!)

I Have To Confess (even though this was a free class and I paid for Worth a Thousand Words - and signed up for that first - it's the confession one that's got me thinking most over the past couple of days so that's the one I'm going to start working on first. See below!)

And - getting to the end of the month! I love December, it's full of birthdays of people I love, beautiful lights and decorations, singing in a choir, special traditions, presents.... and also I can't wait to do Journal Your Christmas!

Oh yes, the confessions thing? Now don't go expecting any deep dark secrets lol... But I have been thinking about the kind of 'confession' I could put into an album like this. Here's one:



I enjoy reading children's books...

Did you spot my cunning plan for blog fodder here? I can blog the photo of each confession, and then, when I make the page, I can blog about that too! Twice as many posts! ;-)

I'm also looking forward to Blogging For Scrapbookers. I put my LSNED and JYC pages on my blog last year and it was great fun!

I LOVED "I have to Confess." It was really fun and actually helped me to realize a couple of important things about myself and my art (especially my photography).

I am currently working with 8 year olds and one of the greatest joys is hearing reading, so many books that didn't exist when I was there age and happy memories of a few that did.
