With all the entries compiled, counted and compared, we managed to whittle down the participants to our favourite 8 ( or as we refer to them – our favour8), all of whom won a FREE AmazeBox. To find out who won keep reading – you can see what the judges picked out!
In no particular order….
Just look at those puppy dog eyes! We just had to send this Easter themed entry an AmazeBox
If a picture had sound, this one would say ‘EEEeeeeeekkk’. So we sent an AmazeBox
to squeaky clean little’un, Benjamin.
Not sure where she thinks she’s going but she certainly rocked her way to a FREE AmazeBox
Bill and his mate wanted an AmazeBox
this much, so we gave in – they only got the one mind you!
In a box to win a box, we love it Mark!
Claude the cat clearly wants to get his claws onto the prize, who are we to stop him? PS Claude the cat…we see what you did there.
Mr and Mrs Callow are all smiles as they approach their wedding anniversary. Ahhh, how sweet!
An empty bowl! We can’t have that now can we. Never fear a box of treats is coming your way.
Many thanks to all who entered and congratulations to our favour8! We hope you enjoy your AmazeBox.

No, this is not The Hoff’s cooking blog but an enlightening article on a park that changes according to nature… Keukenhof.
Based in Holland, Keukenhof is in fact the world’s most beautiful spring garden with over 32 hectares of flowers. It offers 30 inspiring flower shows, 7 amazing gardens along with 100s of wonderful works of art. This year’s theme ‘United Kingdom Land of Great Gardens’ features a spectacular flower mosaic of The Big Ben and Tower Bridge composed of 60,000 flower bulbs.
On Saturday 20th April visitors will be given the opportunity to leave the park to watch the 66th annual Bulbflower Parade which will travel 40km along the main roads from Noordwijk to Haarlem, comprising of 20 large floats and more than 30 decorated luxury cars, all decorated with millions of flowers by hundreds of volunteers. Amongst the parade, ahead of the cinema premier, characters from Despicable Me 2 will be showcased on one of the floats, including the iconic daffodil-yellow minions.
So if you’re eager to see more than 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths all in bloom, then check out more at www.keukenhof.nl/en/
