Twilight Quiz...

I went to my local Waterstone's book shop today as they had a Twilight Quiz to celebrate the movie release next Friday. We had to answer 12 questions and the winner would get a signed copy of Breaking Dawn. Most of the quiz was easy but one question ' What age was Bella's Mum when she Married Charlie?' had me a bit confused first I put 17 then I changed it to 19 (it was a multi - choice quiz) as I thought it was after she finished high school, but the answer was 17 so I got 11/12 and didn't win :(. I did however win a Bag, badges and a Team Edward keyring so was definatly worth going.

Also there is another competition to win cinema tickets to see the film, you have to design something creative to do with Twilight, so think I feel a scrapbook LO coming on lol.........

Also some very exciting news Andrea has decided to open a Inkadink Forum here: so go on over and register to become one of our first members!!! Can't wait to see you there, it's going to be so much fun xxx

Time to catch up....

So we got back from a fantastic 10 day trip to the states last Thursday, we went to Kennebunkport which is a small coastal town in Maine (President Bush Senior has his summer home there). We had a brilliant time going out for days to Boston, Salem MA and Freeport ME.

We stayed at a B+B called the Green Heron Inn which was stunning, the Innkeepers Dan and Tony made us feel so at home and we have to thank Tony for the yummy breakfasts and afternoon cookies and treats. We will definatly go back again.

So here are some photos:

I'll add some more soon and some pic's of all my new stash :) TFL xxx

I know I'm really behind the times, but I started reading the twilight series this week. I must admit (what I was told by everyone who's read them) I can not put it down. I'm trying not to read the first book too quickly as I really want to save it to read on the plane when I go on holiday. I'm not sure if that's going to happen lol.
