    What a fantastic competition, Kim. I'm really cross that I am away all next week so will miss the voting unless I can read them early on Saturday - the time difference just might work in my favour!

    Another brilliant idea - and a very generous prize! Enough to make me wish I had taken up painting!

    Love the music on that widget too :-)
