Scrapshare Blog Challenge #28

"I read recently that our sense of smell is much stronger than we realize. For many people a specific scent can trigger nostalgic memories from years and years ago. For others, a whiff of a specific scent or odor for that matter can bring back awful memories. Is there a scent that does this for you? Talk to me about smells that you remember, from childhood, your teenage years, or even more recently, and be sure to tell of what these scents mean to you when they resurface in your life now."

Recently I came across a product that took me right back to my grandma's house. It really hit home to me. You see my grandma died in 1980 when I was 7 so I don't have a lot of memories of her. However she used to use puff powder which smelt really nice. The product that reminded me is the Stampin Up stamp cleaner - the spray. It's a very strange product to smell like powder but as I said it took me right back.

new look for my blog

I didn't like the look of the basic layouts available here so looked up Pyzam ( which was recommended by Lita and found some wonderful options. After one false start I found this one that works. Some of you will be surprised it's not red but I couldn't find any nice red ones. Never mind. Even I can choose a different colour now and then, lol.

A BIG BIG thank you to Lita for helping to put this together. To give Lita full credit she actually put it all together after I chose what I wanted to go on here. This is something else she is good at. Now I just have to link it to scrapshare.

Welcome to my blog

I decided it's time I entered the world of blogs. Well this isn't actually my first blog but it's been months since I posted in my old one and there were only a few posts anyway.

I'm going to ask for help making it cool because it's as boring as hell and I've seen some brilliant ones that belong to some of my friends.
