Its Holiday candy time !!!!!

Good morning everyone and although there's no card today I have some yummy scrummy paper lovers candy for while I'm away on holiday, its all brand new and some of my very favourite papers and goodies...if you didnt already know Im off to Lanzarote on Thursday the 9th for two weeks so it will run from today until Midnight (GMT) Sunday 26th September and consists of

18 x My Minds eye Deenos Penny Lane 12x12 Speciality Glitter papers...these are fantastic glittered and embossed papers and as you can see I use them all the them
10 x K&Co 12x12 Speciality papers including embossed kraftcard and die cut frames and a sheet
of the lush pink stripe acetate I love
Basicgrey 6x6 Capella paper pad
pack of beautiful ribbons some of my favourites
pack of pastels buttons ( these are my favs and I'm on my third pack now)

Do you like it?...right now what do you need to do...although I would love for you to want to be a follower I wouldn't even think of trying to force you to...honestly all you need to do is leave your name in Mr Linky and leave me a comment telling me your best holiday or most favourite place for a holiday (my fav place is Italy and the best holiday so far was Las Vegas), post a link on your blog to the candy (sidebar is fine) and that's it really. My candy is open to everyone no matter where you live.
I wish you luck with my candy, the photo really doesn't do these stunning papers justice but if you look through my blog you can see I use them constantly...have a fabulous day everyone
Mina xx

My favourite holiday was my honeymoon when I went up to a little island here in Australia called Hamilton Island. We were in the Adults Only resort and oh my was it beautiful. Very humid though so took a couple of days to get accustomed to it. We went to Whitehaven Beach which is the Whitest beach in the world, snorkelled just off the Great Barrier Reef and did parasailing. It was the best time of my life and was oh so special being our honeymoon. We have vowed to go back there every ten years so another four years and we will be back there. Thankfully my kids will be old enough then that they can come with us or I like the idea of them staying with the family so we can have another special holiday.

heidy said...

Evil Edna said...

What droolsome candy. My love going on holiday, from the moment I leave the door the adventure begins. I adore Devon and Cornwall but I was lucky enough to go to Japan a while ago and long to return there. It is a stunning, diverse and alien country which I hope changed some of my attitudes for the better.
Polite world domination!
have a great holiday

Hi Mina - I hope you have a fabulous holiday, and thank you for the chance to win this gorgeous candy!
My favourite holidays are the ones I've spent on the Pembrokeshire coast with my hubby and children, when we've had gorgeous weather. !
Oh - I've just remembered - Richard and I had a fabulous holiday in Canada after winning some money on the lottery :D - it was supposed to be a skiing holiday but I was not allowed to ski because I broke my hand when I went for a skiing lesson in this country a few weeks before going (ha! ha! trust me!)
Love, Andrea xx

Jessie said...

I hope you have a wonderful holiday Mina! Enjoy all the sunshine and have a cocktail for me :) My favourite place to go is Paris but my favourite holiday was our holiday to Barcelona this year, it was perfect from start to finish :)

D K Crafts said...

Hi Mina. Hope you are feeling a lot better for your holiday. This is beautiful candy, thanks for the chance to enter it.
I don't really like holidays, as I don't like flying. However, I have compromised and 2 - 3 hours on a plane is enough for me. I like Menorca and have been twice and it is so quiet and laid back and has beautiful scenery and wouldn't be as busy as other holiday resorts. One place I do like to go is Edinburgh for a few days, it is beautiful. The best holiday for me is home when the girls are off school and you have no routines, etc and you are a lot more relaxed.
Anyway I hope you have a brilliant holiday and enjoy your time with your husband and daughter. Donna

Larisa said...

My best holiday was in Crimea in 2003. Sorry, I had not a rest since that... no money...

Poppet said...

Business out of the way first, already a follower, put candy in sidebar, left comment. Best holiday was at Kelling Heath in Norfolk (near Sheringham). Wonderful weather, forest to one side of the campsite, heath to the other side and the seaside about 15mins away. Family contented. Kids felt so settled there Rancorman even went the 50 yards from the tent to the shop with only his sister. Perfect. Thank you for the wonderful candy.

Have a fantastic holiday Mina, plenty of rest and relaxation and not too much sun. :-) x

cardmaking bird said...

Hi Mina,
Thanks for the chance to win such fabby candy. My favourite places to go on holiday are Marmaris in Turkey, because it's a beautiful place and everyone is so friendly. Or in this country, it's the Isle of Sheppey cos since I've been ill and unable to go abroad we've had some wonderful holidays in caravans there. My best holiday EVER though was last year when my mum paid to take us to Disneyland Paris, it really was a once in a lifetime holiday and we had the most fun and no-one wanted to come home!!

I think my favorite holiday destination would be Vienna. I've only been there passing through nd LOVED the place.
But my most happy holiday so fr must have been a slightly md bus trip to Italy. Granted, we weren't sober too much but boy did we have good time. nd yes, I ws a lot younger then. And not married. And no, no kids either. Kinda explains the careless fun bit, lol

Hi, Mina. Thank you for the great chance you're giving us. You know, my favourite place to go on holiday is ... the UK! Actually, I've already been in some areas, but never to Wales, Cornwall and Northern Ireland, for instance. Talking about your fav place, if you come to Italy you can be my guest! The place where I live - Monza - is not one of the best for the climate, especially in winter but is very near Milan.
Have a nice holiday in your new swimming suit! Hugs. Miria

Best holiday is a hard one because I've had some wonderful ones but I think I would have to choose St Maarten in the Caribbean. Fave place for a holiday would probably be California.
Take care.

Катенька said...

Hello Mina!
I've been different countries and places - Europe, Egypt, Nigeria... But my best holiday was in Turkey. It was our honeymoon :-)

Anonymous said...

I've been to so many places in Europe so far: Ireland, Sweeden, France, Hungary, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Ukraine .. and the United States, so choosing my best holiday is very difficult.
Greece with a group of my school years ago, with a coach and tents? Or Paris with my best friend, staying at a French family? Or Stockholm with my sister? Or Ireland with my boyfriend? Or the "Canal Nivernais avec mes parents et ma soeur"? I can't decide, but these are my favourites.

Thanks for this candy - It's fun to read the comments, that's why I participate - inspiration for my next holiday. *wink*
Have a great holiday.

fionalawlor said...

Yay lucky you off on your holidays!Im jealous the furthest I got this year was Donegal lol My fave holiday was in New York, I had been wanting to go pretty much all my life,so when I got to go it was a dream come true.Also as it was a last minute surprize from my hubby i only found out that i was going about 3 days beforehand,so it was extra special.

Hope you manage to relax in Tenerife. Have fun.

Love Sheila x

Skrapbuker said...

Wonderful blog candy! Thanks for a chance to win. I'm a new follower & I've shared this on my blog's sidebar.

My favourite place isn't going to be exciting or exotic as some have commented ... I just like to go home to Mom's. That's my favourite place. I moved away in 2007 and I never thought I'd miss it so much. Funny thing is, the longer I'm gone, the more I miss it. I hope to go back home to visit this year as it's been 2 years since I last went home. I surprised Mom 2 years ago ... was talking to her saying my BF & I were out and that I'd talk her later when she was home after her night out. I showed up at her door to "talk" to her. ^_^

Hi Mina and thank you for the great opportunity!
I'm an Italian living in Ireland and who has visited quite a few places in her life, but I must admit that Italy is still one of the nicest places I have ever been to.... The other fab holiday places I have to are Bali (so sunny, wild and the ocean is great!) and Peru, the first place I have ever gone on holidays with my hubby...;-)
Enjoy your holidays and see you soon!

I've been away from the blogworld with a summer of moving house, renovating and getting a carpal tunnel syndrome from the painting... But slowly getting back on track again :)

I have to say that my favorite holiday place is my original homecountry Finland - after relocating to Norway to live with my SO I sometimes miss horribly the feeling of belonging to somewhere. I miss being able to understand everything around me. I must be a bit of a bore :(

Lovely candy again and I wish you a lovely holiday!

I hope your holiday is wonderful. My favorite holiday on the calendar is Christmas. My favorite holiday (travel wise) so far was my invitation to England in 1995, when I visited a penpal and spent 10 glorious days touring the north of England and the Roman ruins. My kind of weather. I would love to talk Northern Ireland with you as I have relatives in Newtownstewart near Omagh in Co. Tyrone. Thanks for this great blog candy. The colors are exquisite.

Peppermintpatty said...

My absolut favorite is Tuscany - but since you already love Italy I feel I have to tell you about my second favorite instead which is the island of Gotland on the eastcoast of Sweden. Going there is like going to another world, another time. The little city of Visby is a mediaeval treasure, the local food is amazing, the rockformations will take the breath out of you, the sun always shines (at least it has the most sun hours per year of all Scandinavia(-: the beaches are beautiful and the people so FRIENDLY
It is so beautiful me and my -now husband got married there this summer. I actually made some cards for that which is on my blog so if you want so see what my absolut favorite spot there looks like - go to July 5th (-;.
Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful vacation with lots of sun! (here it's raining right now)
yours, Karin

Surely the most beautiful place I visited is Paris .. I've left my heart!
See the tower illuminated at night, the artists of Montmartre, Notre Dame and its gargoyles, the Seine, and the attention to detail of Paris made me fall in love again :-) If I could..I would live there!

rita winmill said...

I am from Kaysville, Utah, USA, and I loved the cards you have made. I didn't like the stamps with the faces without the mouths, but that is just me, I like to see expressions!

The papers look amazing. I have the good fortune to live in the Brecon Beacons which is a very popular holiday destination in Wales however if I choose to go away it would have to be the Lake District or Scotland. A current aim is to holiday in Edinburgh.

Margreet said...

Hi Mina....thanks for giving the chance to win this gorgeous candy and I hope your holidays were wonderful!
The holiday which impressed me most was our trip to Indonesia (Java and Lombok). It was the first time we went without our daughter (then 17 years old) and also the first time we went so far away. The impressions over there were overwhelming. Afterwards we also went to Thailand and the Dutch Antilles.....that was also great but never as great as Indonesia.
Since my hubby has had a coronair operation for the 2nd time we stay closer at home....and we love France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland too...
