Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

to you all. Well, it sure has been a busy month for us all and I would say its been an amazing start to the festive season, wouldn't you? With all the fantastic Blog Trains and Blog Parties and Store sales and fun and games its been the busiest Christmas time I can remember for a long time but oh....what fun we've had.

I sure hope you've enjoyed what BooLand has had to offer during this wonderful eason. Today is the last of our 4 a week new kits and samplers and I also have the great KimB CC kit for you. What a fab way to end the year folks....

So.... whats new at Booland this week? 4 Brand new Products, all on sale for this week only at 25% off AND 4 Brand new Samplers, FREE, for this week only right here so grab them while you can. Don't worry if you miss them though, you'll still be able to pick them up in the Bargain Bin for a great price. All of these are products are now available at BooLand Store and soon at SAS

We will also have matching albums to ALL of our new products for you in the New year.

First, we have a wonderful New Year kit, different to any you've seen around this year I think. This is HOGMANAY. How many of you know what Hogmanay is? I was surprised that Blossom Michelle had never heard of it so here's a little info for those of you that don't know anything about this wonderful celebration

We also have a beautiful kit just perfect for those more traditional New Year social events. Little Black Dress is filled with sparkle and elegance and is ideal for scrapping just about any special social gathering. Its definately one of those kits you should always have in your stash.

Just for a change, and because I think sometimes, as much as we love this wonderful time of year, we can overdo it a bit, we have a lovely summery kit for you. Lilleth was inspired by my daughter Elly and her favourite toy Tigey. She's had Tigey since she was 4 months old and to her, he is every bit as real as you and me. The kit is filled with gorgeous papers and tons of lovely summery elements that are bound to chase away any winter blues you may feel so have fun and remember, its on sale this week only at 25% off.

and finally, the last kit of the year, we have 'Into The Blue' for you. A real spring beauty to get you in the mood. This kits a whoppa and comes complete with a gorgeous matching alpha, fab papers and great elements that will have you turning out lo after lo and no two will ever be the same.

and as if that wasn't enough, to finish off this year I have yet another Freebie for you. Who said we'd let the Credit Crunch bring us down in BooLand??? NOT US... hehe

Today you can grab my KimB December CC kit and its going to stay here all the way through Jan too so you have fun.

Link Fixed ;)

Well Ladies. Thats about it for BooLand for this year. We are about to take a lovely and well earned holiday until the New year. I think my Blossoms deserve a break, hehe.

Christmas Around the World


Its definately begining to feel like Christmas around here. How many of you have got your tree and decorations up already?? I am hoping to get mine done over the weekend if I can.

When Danny and Mikey were little we used to put all the dates from the 1st to the 24th December into Jack the Hat (an old trilby from out of the dressing up box) and we would all pick out two tickets. The winner was the earliest date out of 'Jack' and that would be our 'Tree Day', hehe. We'd have a little Tree Day party with kiddy party food and Christmas music and spend the whole afternoon decorating our tree. The boys loved it.

Sadly, we lost Jack the Hat so these days I tend to just pick a day that has the least going on hahaha. Poor Elly doesn't get half the fun her big brothers used to have at Christmas but we make up for it in other ways. She gets to bake mince pies instead hehehe.

Well, today is Christmas Around the World day finally and OMG, Ladies, these Designers have truly out done themselves. There are sooooo many fantastic goodies I don't know where to begin.

*Sign up for our BooLand Yahoo Group Newsletter (link in the side bar) and you'll get even more fantastic freebie goodies, only available through our Newsletter)

Here's my little contribution and there is also a special treat for you from the Blossoms which you will find below so go grab some Christmas cheer and have lots of fun.

You'll find ALL the Christmas Around the World links and Previews HERE

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to come back on Sunday for our wonderful SAS Christmas Blog Party.

Festive hugs all round

Still, I count my blessings because if the most I have to complain about is a few hiccups every now and then well, honestly, slap my wrist for being a Whoppa someone because I'd say I have it pretty cushty really.

Hello and welcome back meeeeeeeeee.... hehe!

OMG..... my pc DIED on me. The AUDACITY! lol. Its taken forever to figure out the problem which I never would have guessed. It turned out to be the actual pc itself. I had no idea that they fix them to have a 'lifespan'... Whats that all about????

Anyway, I won't bore you all with the details. Sufice to say we got it working so so in the end and I have a fab goody for you. I really thought I was going to miss this months challenge with my pal KimB but hey, life is full of little miracles isn't it.

DOWNLOAD KimB's November Challenge here.
Have fun

A couple of quickie notes. Sharon hun, thankyou so much for your good wishes. Its good to know there are folk out there looking out for me.

We have had a ton of problems with the new forum and gallery which I can only apologise for. It hasnt been helped by the fact that my pc went down either. We have decided to close them both for now while we work on them. I'll keep you posted as to our progress on that. Meanwhile, a few of you asked if I would still be doing the Booland Color Challenge. Well heck yes..... We will host it on my blog for now until we get the forum and gallery fixed. Hang in there. I am setting up a Gallery/blog just for your lo's so I'll post the info as soon as I have it and.... if I say so myself... I'm rather pleased with Decembers starter kit and PB, yummylicious is all I'm going to say, hehe.

Lynn will also run our Font challenge from the Blossoms blog and lo's for that can also be sent in for upload to our dedicated Gallery blog so keep an eye open for the links.

Ok ladies, I'll keep this post short. Enjoy and we'll see you all real soon.

p.s..... I have a ton of gorgeous new kits coming out in December too so watch out for some fab bargains.

Well, a little later then I had planned but finally here. I have a brand new kit in store for you.
DayBreak is filled with beautiful papers, gorgeous elements and a color combo that fits its name perfectly. It has a sort of whimsical/romantic feel to it for me perhaps because thats how I usually feel at DayBreak lol. However it makes 'you' feel, I hope its full of wonderful Inspiration.
You'll find the kit, matching Bracket Album and FREE sampler available on SALE at 25% in both Booland and SAS so wherever you prefer to shop be sure to get there while its on sale and grab yourself a super bargain.
You can also enjoy the matching sampler via my blog right here for those of you who prefer not to go through the store. Just scroll down to the image to grab it. Have fun.

The final DAD and SASy Chat

Hello everyone and a very Happy Halloween.

Today I have the final DAD for you. Wow. Its been a very busy month with tons of super goodies hasnt it? I'm so glad you've all enjoyed this month of goodies and some of you have even said its been you're favourite kit so far, WOW, thank you so much for that lovely compliment.

You can grab todays DAD here or click on the preview. Enjoy
*This link is now expired.. Thanks so much for your interest. If you would still like it, please check our Bargain Bin at BooLand where you will find our previous Blog freebies on sale*

There will be no DAD for November due to us fixing all the hiccups in the store and Forum but that doesn't mean you won't get some great goodies right here on my blog so be sure to pop back often as you never know when I'll be in that 'generous' mood, hehe.


Meanwhile, please DON'T forget our fantastic first LIVE CHAT in the SASy chat room tomorrow. Yes, even I will be there and I can promise you, we have a ton of gorgeous goodies for you. Even our fearless and somewhat mysterious leader, JulieO is coming in for a chat so be sure to get there nice and early and grab a seat. Its going to get pretty busy lol.

And a little reminder. We are having a MONSTEROUS SALE over at SAS. Everyone is putting their SASy Stores on sale for a HUGE 50%. Now thats something to get excited about isn't it.
Well girls. I'm off to put on my green makeup and black dress. Elly and I are going to my sisters for some Trick or Treating. Elly is going as Darth Vador and I am going as Elpha'boo' from Wicked hehe. I think the name fits me perfectly, don't you?

Hopefully, I'll get some good photos so watch this space.

Until tomorrow, have a good Halloween
Boo x

ps. almost forgot. Thank you all of you who gave me awards. At some point I will get them on here. Its such a thrill to know you've recieved an award and I've been very slack getting them up but please bear with me, as soon as I get the store/forum sorted, you'll see them appearing. Big hugs to you all for thinking of me.
