Pile It On #43 - Be Happy

Life is tough sometimes and for that same reason we are saying you've got to BE HAPPY!  Enjoy the moments of life!  This week Jellypark is helping us BE HAPPY with their amazing images.

Claire, the brilliant mind behind all these quirky and amazing images, lives in England in the market town of Rayleigh in Essex where she works from home in her tiny and very messy little studio. Her original paintings are held in private collections across the world from Australia to the USA, her whimsical images perfect for children's bedrooms or for a quirky bit of art for any wall. She has illustrated a number of children's books and has recently also developed a new range of digital craft supplies. Latest projects include developing some children's stories for the ipad, a range of children's t-shirts and colouring posters.
They have a challenge blog: JellyPark Friends that starts on Fridays so go check it out and BE HAPPY!
Of course our winner this week gets to have some Jellypark park goodies delivered to her Inbox... a very good reason to BE HAPPY!

Now, while you enjoy that cup of coffee, tea or pop let's enjoy the happiness that the girls have brought this week to PIO.

Pile It On #41 - Just Because

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a new challenge here at Pile It On! Blog.  The ladies have been playing with a very special sponsor's products "Nikki Sivils"!  You may have seen some of these products in your local store and online and let me tell you they are AWESOME!  She has one amazing blog, where you can see where her products are being sold at and it is FULL of amazing inspiration!

This week's winner will receive a  Nikki Sivils' goodie package.

A bit of information about Nikki!
How Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker came to be
Of course it began with a love for scrapbooking. Many years ago Nikki became curious about scrapbooking which lead to a hobby, which developed into a passion, which gave life to a dream. Nikki began creating designs for papers and writing notes about ideas for embellishments. She filled up many notebooks with the hope of one day starting her own company. Her dream became real after Nikki’s husband, Dan, retired from the law firm he co-founded after 16 years of being a lawyer. Dan had desired to embark on a new career for many years. It was one of those moments in life where they knew a door of opportunity could be opened. Nikki and Dan asked, “If not now then when?” Their deep desire to bring the dream into reality became so strong they stepped through the door and together devoted themselves to making it come true.
And now le't just enjoy the DT's work.  They embraced the "Just Because" theme this week!
