Purple Pumpkin Blog Hop!

Welcome to my blog if you're here for the Purple Pumpkin Blog Hop and my apologies for the lateness of my post! I hope you all had a fun time hopping around the blogs last night and checking out all the gorgeous work with our new Clay Buttons.

I was out with my hubby for the night at his Mines Rescue dinner, where his team once again took out the local competition for the third year in a row. So proud of him!!

Anyhoo, back to the topic at is my layout using some of the clay buttons sent to me by Sam - this layout is also for Renee's Music Clip Challenge over in the Savvy Forum.

Oh What A Night!
