BOB prizes arrive.....................

blogged by me domestic goddess On 6/13/2006 10:27:00 PM
And what a shambles it is. I hate to sound ungrateful but boy personal impressions have dug deep into the bottom of their warehouse to pack boxes for the 12 bob's.
I haven't taken a picture because its a joke but this is what I received;

3 packs of K&Co stickers
1 x cowboy embellishments
1 x 6"x6" album
1 x BG 8"x8" scrap pad
1 x pack of fabric ribbon
2 x Kand Co tags
1 x metal embellishments
2 x packs of Kand CO cards !!!!!!
1 x pack of wedding stickers
1 x xmas embellishments
2 x sheets of Kand CO floral
3 x sheets of Kand Co manuscript
2 x sheets of Kand CO keys
5 sheets of embossed kand Co patchwork brightly coloured stuff!
4 sheets of Kand Co embossed brightly coloured stripey stuff!!
4 sheets of embossed button paper
2 x sheets of BG tags

A lot of stuff but of very little use to a winner of a so called Best of British contest. Thankfully I am not the only one who feels like this, it seems the vast majority of us are really disappointed. And it was packaged so badly that the papers are all damaged at the corners. Crumbs talk about ungrateful, I really don't mean to sound it. The prize wasn't even the reason I entered. I entered days before and had no idea who the sponsors where tbh. I entered for the prestige, the fact that a book would be published. Unfortunately no book was/is going to be published, instead the layouts have been published over 3 issues in Scrapbook Inspirations.

Ok enough of my moaning. Here is the Lo I couldn't upload yesterday called Model behavior. My Lilly sporting a pair of designer shades and bling!!! What a doll she is.
And lastly I leave you with a coversation Izzy had with me at bedtime

"Mummy, It doesn't matter that you have a fat tummy, you are beautiful like a princess angel. Your cheeks are so soft and your eyes. I love you mummy a hundred millions"

Sleep well
Anna xx

    I am just as disappointed as you - when I received the email which told me what Prizes we all would be getting, I cried and was tempted to tell them to stuff it...but then I thought - well they better send me something.

    My scrapping friends from the US said that they could not believe that all the BoB's werwe receiving looks like seconds.
    I mean, haven't they looked at the cards and LO's we submitted?? Why send us something that we wouldn't use?

    The K&Co stuff is pretty but it's just nothing that I would ever use. They should give this to someone who would enjoy working with it.

    This puts me off entering and UK competition in the future. BoB has lost its former glory
