Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did AMAZING yet again with 139 link ups! THANK YOU ALL so much for being part of the linky! I really appreciate your support. For new people joining us this week, I really hope you like #KCACOLS and that you come back again next time! You can also find out more about this linky in the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
PLEASE READ: There will be no #KCACOLS next weekend SATURDAY 23rd JULY as I’m in need of a well needed break. I don’t normally have many breaks for the linky so I have decided that I will take one week off to refill my batteries and catch up with my blog as I have a huge backlog of posts to deliver. The linky will be back again on SATURDAY 30th JULY with Sarah from Tammymum and Danielle of Someone’s Mum as my co-hosts for that week.
As I mentioned last week, I have been enjoying Wimbledon. It’s a shame its all over now but it was great to see Andy Murray win the final again on Sunday. Hurrah for that! I had a busy week. Bella finished school on Tuesday so she was with me all this time. On Tuesday I went to a fun event at the Disney Store in Oxford Street. This event was organised by Epson. We had the opportunity to learn all about their new printer. I’ll be writing a post about it so watch this space. Maria and I had some fun taking photos. You can see a photo below which I shared on Twitter of us using some of their prompts, LOL. On Thursday, Bella was my plus one when we went to the Paperchase Christmas in July event. That place is like heaven. OMG, they have so many beautiful things to choose from. You can see a photo I took that day of Bella which I shared on Instagram. Today I had another event which I also went to with Bella that was organised by Pizza Express and 20th Century Fox. It was nice again to have some mummy-daughter time with her. I’m sharing a photo from this event too! 🙂

Bella and I really enjoyed @frompaperchase Xmas in July event. Lots of lovely designs. They added a little bit of colour too. This theme has a Mexican inspiration. #pineforyou A photo posted by A Moment with Franca (@amomentwithfranca) on

Now back to the linky. The commenting was AMAZING. I have seen a lot of people commenting a lot this week. That really makes me super happy as no matter how big the linky is we still manage to spread so much love! On Thursday there were about 33 posts that needed more comments. I thought that number was really good considering the amount of link ups we had. Also because we have had a bigger number the previous weeks. I feel so excited about this little community that we have created. Thank You so much to all of you that are part of this linky. Without you this linky will never work. You guys are amazing! We have about 16 people commenting on more than 20 posts. This is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much.
We had 10 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. If you have any problems commenting on the post before yours please just send me a message and I will do my best to help. AGAIN, please do not link up and run. Also please do not forget to approve your comments.
Thank you guys for continuing to read the Thank You email on Thursdays/Fridays. I love that you take the time to check which posts need more love. We have such an amazing community! 🙂
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 89 members so far and it has been fantastic chatting with all of you. You can join us here.
NOTE: If you receive a lot of comments, try to reciprocate to the ones that have taken the time to comment on your post. It is all about being generous between each other and spreading lots of love.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW LINKERS: PLEASE start with commenting on the post linked up before yours first and then go around commenting as much as you would like. Also, use the hashtag #KCACOLS when commenting (this is indeed very important so I can then see how many comments you are doing and then be able to feature you in my linky post which is always great for you as you get a backlink which helps improve your DA).
Thank you so much for all your comments on the host posts and the linky post. As you know I have read and liked all your comments! I can’t comment on all of your posts because of the lack of time. However you will always receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to JESSICA from Babi a Fi and LUCY from R is for Hoppit for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been AMAZING! I would also like to say that I was amazed when I realised how many times Jessica has commented. She did way more than necessary and that was really nice of her. As always I really enjoyed co-hosting with both of them. They were both FANTASTIC! 🙂
My first guest co-host this week is EMMA from Me & B Make Tea. This is the first time that I’m having Emma co-hosting this linky! She joined us a few months ago and since then she has been super supportive of this linky. She is always commenting a lot which is really nice hence why I have featured and mentioned her many times. I guess you must know her blog by now. She is really lovely! Please give her some love on her social media accounts which are (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@meandbmaketea) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally she has a guest co-host post, How to Make a Mud Kitchen! linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
My second guest co-host for this week is KAT from Candyfloss & Dreams. I’m very happy to have Kat this week. This is also her first time. She joined this linky at the beginning of the year if I’m not wrong and she is now one of our regulars. She also loves spreading lots of love so she is always commenting a lot. She has also been featured and mentioned a few times all ready so I’m sure you also know her blog by now. It is always a pleasure to have her. Please give her some love. These are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@KatCandyfloss) to your tweets as well as mine.

Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. We have pinned all your posts from last week’s linky so please go and have a look. There are some great posts that deserve a read!
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Each week I will choose 6 people who have commented A LOT within the linky. Three will be featured and another three will be mentioned on my Saturday linky post. This means that 6 people will get a back link on my new linky post each Saturday!
1. Be sure to grab the #KCACOLS badge which can be found below or on my sidebar. Simply copy the code from the box below the badge and add it to the text/html at the bottom of your post or place it on your blog sidebar.
2. You can link up to 2 posts per week.
3. You can share anything that you would like. It is open to absolutely any subject and also you can link up posts that are old or new. You are allowed to link up another linky ONLY if it is a promotional post about the linky and you can do this only once and I expect you to put my badge or a link to my linky and of course to follow the rules regarding commenting.
4. Comment on one of the hosts posts (choose one that you would like to comment on as I will be linking up 2 posts every week if possible). Then comment the guest co-hosts. Then comment on the post which is linked up immediately before yours and finally any other post that you would like to comment on. That way everybody receives at least two comments (one from the host/guest co-hosts and one from others).
5. This linky will be open every Saturday from 10 pm and will remain open until Wednesday at 11.59 pm.
6. If you would like us to tweet your post that is absolutely fine, just tweet your link to me @WithFranca, Emma @meandbmaketea and Kat @KatCandyfloss and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
