'One' Water, a great cause needing our support

I must drink about 1 and a half litres of water a day, mostly tap water because I'm lucky enough to have the wonderful stuff on tap, cool and clean. Many are less fortunate than I am. So when I'm thirsty and can't get to a tap I buy One water. Not only does it taste wonderful, probably because it's Welsh water, but more importantly the profits go to help those who are less fortunate that I. Click here or on the image of David Tennant and you can find out all about it.

By simply buying a bottle of One Water you could help change the lives of 1 billion people in the world who don't have access to clean water. All One Water's profits, every last drop, go to building unique PlayPump® water systems in Africa which improve people's lives by providing free, clean water. With your help they can make a difference and that’s all they’re trying to do.

You can find out more about the work One Water does by visiting there site here.

Thanks for reading, if you got this far, just go that One step further.

A Little Blue Tag


I've fallen into the trap of not wanting to blog because I don't have any freebies to give back to all the wonderful scrappers who share with me. I've been struggling with Adobe Photoshop and I feel as if I've taken a huge step backwards, because I can't use it nearly as well as I can Paintshop Pro. Soooo ... I'm going to give myself a break and stick with PSP and also just blog and not try to compete, 'cus frankly I just can't!

I'm also going to stop trawling through all the freebies on, because there are just too many and it takes so long. I find I go there and have a nose around and when I check the time, 2 to 3 hours have passed. Which is great, but not EVERY DAY! I will just stick with my favourite Blogs, and you know who they are girls, 'cus I pop in regularly and always comment when I've been to your fab blogs, even when I don't download your freebies.

I LOVE reading about
Bubbles daily saga's and the beautiful Lily and Wyatt her grand babies.

Vicki20 has me is stitches with her tales of Lily and Pompey, her two beautiful Labradors.

Anita who I miss dreadfully and think of daily, and hope that she finds that ray of sunshine that she lost when her beloved hubby died earlier this year. Her blog helped me enormously last year with the mammoth task of scrapping my daughter's 21st Birthday scrap book. Which turned out fantastically, THANK YOU ANITA xx

Bethany who also helped enormously with her wonderful wordart which gave me inspiration, plus her blog is so entertaining. How she can blog, create, diet and cope with five children is beyond me. I think a medal is deserved.

And last, but not least, Cen, who is so very generous, talented and so funny, with tales of lost parents, monster spiders, stiff shirts and discarded relatives!

I'm going to use the time I free up to actually create something. I haven't made a piece of
jewellery for over nine months, and I only make cards and 'Charming Moments', when I need them. I don't know about you girls, but my mojo goes when I HAVE to do something, as apposed to wanting to do something. I'm also going to read more, as I only read now when I can't get on my laptop, which seems to be like all the time just recently. I have a 2 bookcases full of books I have not read which is a crime! I may even do a bit of housework, but I can't promise :)

Anyway .... enough already, I bet you're bored by now, I know I am.

Freebie time

That said, I did try a little tutorial by Shawna, who has a really great blog 'Scrap Stuff With PSP -Tutorials'.
