Guess The Theme 11

Have you got your thinking cap on?  Is your brain ready for a work-out?  Guess The Theme is really hard today.  And very geeky.  To be honest, I'll be shocked if anyone gets it right this week.  If you think you have the answer, or want to beg for more clues (as it's so hard, I might be nice and give out clues this weekend) - you can leave a comment here, on facebook or on twitter (@cutekidsclocks).  Guess The Theme is just for fun this week but I'm working on a crafty trophy for people who guess correctly in future, more on that in the next week or so...

Before we start I just want to sneak in a quick plug for the Buy Handmade British Directory.  I'm accepting submissions now and hope to have it up and running in a couple of weeks (just need to finish the Cute Kids Clocks website first...).  Anyway it's free advertising for British crafters, which I think is putting a few people off because they think there must be a catch, and once you're in the directory you'll get advertising on the directory, blog, facebook and twitter.  You can find out more here.

Now on with Guess the Theme...
