Blog hop this month at CCW!

Hello again,
 
As it's the beginning of February we have another scrap map challenge at Creative Craft World
and today we are having a blog hop too!
There will be a prize for one reader who visits each of our blogs this month and leaves a comment, just to let us know you've visited.
 
And as usual there is the fabulous prize of a CCW kit, GDT spot and a generous shop discount for the winner of this month's scrap map challenge.
You can enter with a scrapbook page or a card!!
So have a look at the sketch and find all the details on how to enter HERE.
 
For those taking part in the hop, you will have made it here from Mel's blog.
 
For my page this month I've used a photo of my eldest daughter Lydia, taken when she was almost 3.
As she will be 16 in a few weeks time we have been reminiscing about her baby days and pulled out the old photo albums.
She was our only child until she was seven and was definitely our little princess :)
 
 I used pale yellow Bazzill card for the base and the patterned paper is
K&Co 'Greenhouse collection''
 
The 'princess' title is Me and my Big Ideas gemstones
 
 I added matching butterfly rub-ons to the top of the page and turquoise dew drops down the right hand side of the page.
 
I love to add hidden journaling to my pages so I made this tag to slip behind the photo.
I haven't added the journaling yet as I want to keep it personal just for Lydia. 

Now you've seen my page it's time to hop on over to Sarah W's blog.
 
Here's the complete list just in case you get lost!
 
Thank you for visiting today and I look forward to seeing what you do with the scrap map!
Don't forget.... from now on you can enter with a card or scrapbook page.
Take care and have a lovely weekend.
Sarah xx

Thank you for your tip about the needle when sewing on paper. I tried sewing some fabric afterwards and well you were right it had blunted the end so now that needle is my special paper only needle. I loved the sound of the needle going through paper it was so cool, so I will definitely be doing it again soon.
