Tinkelbel Hi ladies, can anyone describe to me what a 'pumpkin patch' really means? Is that a field of pumpkins, or some sort of party where pumpkins are carved? I cannot seem to find the exact meaning on the internet. Thanks! by the way, my photobook has been delivered and it looks gorgeous! Again, I'm impressed by Blurbs quality.

"Pumpkin Patch" in Aussie Land is a shop where you can buy children's clothes. Very little carving of Pumpkins down these parts. Kay
Well thanks ladies for the explanation, I understand now. @Kay, yes, I got that result too when I was searching on the internet. My daughter even has a t-shirt from Pumpkin Patch, here in Belgium!
How interesting that there are so many different meanings. I've always lived where we can grow pumpkins, so a "pumpkin patch" is literally the field where we grow the pumpkins.
Tinkelbel 2011 - A year in scraps. That's the name of my photobook, that has finally been uploaded to Blurb. It contains 332 pages, and I should receive it by Friday 7th September!!! I've worked a whole year on this, so I'm really excited. Most of the layouts are in my gallery here, but the books contains some layouts that have not been put in any gallery yet. This is the link to Blurbs preview, if you would be interested http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/2886697/dc53565375...

Tinkelbel Three hoorays for Gotye and his song 'Somebody that I used to know'!!! I just heard on the news that he's number one in the American billboards. Gotye is belgian (but lives in Australia), hence my three hoorays :-)

Oh, that's exciting - adding my yay! :)
That song keeps getting stuck in my head!
It was number one in Belgium last autumn and it was the most downloaded song of 2011. I still love it, even after hearing it so often.
Tinkelbel Sigh Sigh ... so many things to do and I don't have time left for scrapping, apart from that little bookmark... It'll be June before I will have time again ... :-(

Tinkelbel feeling very emotional after watching the funeral of seven of the belgian children who died in the bus accident in Switzerland last week ...

Yes, it was awful!
Very very Sad indeed!!
I saw on the news a report of the commemoration (is that even the correct word) in Lommel, where 15 children and their teacher and ski coach were remembered in a very impressive gathering. To see these white coffins of the children, it's just horrible. I cannot begin to imagine what the parents are going through.
Tinkelbel Wow, the new Scrap Club Collection 'Butterfly Effect' is totally awesome! I'm looking forward to making layouts with it.

Tinkelbel Can anyone tell me what an 'ad inspiration' challenge is?

Tinkelbel I have a question about a translation... We are discussing a title, '20 ways of celebrating a special moment', and we were wondering if you say in English 'of celebrating a special moment' or 'to celebrate' or 'to celebrate a special moment'. Which is correct? I'd be forever greatful to get a correct answer from a native speaker ... :-)

Dianne is right - either would work. To is maybe a little less formal and obviously the one that comes to mind first for most people. Your English is great, but love to help with the little oddities of the language.
Well, it's for a marketing action at work actually. So it is quite official, but on the other hand, the title can be 'casual'. Somebody at work today said that both were correct, so it is quite confusing, and I did not find sufficient information in the online edition of the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary, so I thought, well, I have some new friends in America :-), I'll ask them. Florida Granny, what do you mean by 'a gerund' what is that?
Sorry I didn't see this sooner. A gerund is a verb used as a noun. For example: "Her piano playing was excellent." The word "playing" is a gerund. I hope I am not confusing you!!
Tinkelbel Does anyone know how I can start adding friends?

Tinkelbel When someone gives me a compliment about my work, it always makes me so happy. I suffer from constant lack of self-confidence! Thanks Joyce! And thank you Florida Granny to mention my name to Joyce.
