The idea behind my squares

I've opened this blog to share my squares with you

It is my intention to make a square most days using up some of my many scraps and bits and pieces along with some of my stamps that haven't been used very much at all

I got the inspiration for this blog from Johanna who I followed right throughout 2010 - Johanna has given me her permission to follow suit and try to do the same as she did - Johanna is a hard act to follow her squares have been amazing

I hope you will like what you see, maybe leave me a comment and join my followers

One World One Heart

This post will stay at the top until February 17th - to see my new squares just scroll on down

I am having so much fun on my other blog (I'm No 177 in the list) visiting blogs all over the world in the One World One Heart blog hop that I have decided to add too it with a door prize from this my squares blog

I set up my "Squares Blog" on the first of January this year with the intention of producing a square every day for the year using up some of my scraps, some of my stamps and any other bits and bats I have lying around. So far I have kept up to date !!!!

I am offering a book made up of 8 of my squares in some grungy covers.I'm only showing the cover the rest will be a surprise !!!!This is the fifth and final time that Lisa is running this event. Thanks Lisa for all your hard work

Thanks for visiting my blog - your comments are much appreciated. It would be great if you joined my followers and see if I achieve my goal of producing a square every day for the whole year but its not a requirement of winning please just leave a comment. x Hilda
