WOOOHOOOO- I've just had my nails done, got the chores done- made sure the dogs and cats have food stock for while we are away ( they will be staying at home with my housekeeper and her grandson), been to the chemist to stock up on sun block, meds and all the other things we might just need ( you know the anti-POOP meds and anti-puke med's) LOL. Made sure all the clothes that need to be taken with are washed ( being ironed later) Got the suitcases down and all the DUST cleaned off them ( shheeeee's- they aren't used often enough-LOL). So I'm really really now getting excited about leaving!

I'm hoping to get on while I'm there but the Hotel is in a *dead zone* with no connectivity ( the cell phones etc don't even work in the rooms ;-). There is only ONE place that they call a hot spot and that's in the cocktail bar- WAHAHAHAHAHA. I think that is going to suit me JUST FINE! So the only thing I'll be doing while away is emptying my inbox- I won't be able to load or download as there isn't enough *ooompf* for that- so I guess Waynie really chose the PERFECT place for a holiday-LOL But I WILL take TONS of pics to come show you all the fun we got up too-.

So BEFORE I say goodbye for just on more than a week- just a reminder-



ALL 5 PRODUCTS cost just $6.99!! GRAB IT NOW- because if you miss it today- it's going up as a BUNDLE TOMORROW and it costs a LOT MORE that way- I don't want you to kick yourselves.

I've also got a BRAND NEW papermaking BUNDLE up in store ( hee hee, I had to at least get some stuffies up for when I am away right?- LOL) These are for PERSONAL and COMMERCIAL USE


My CT ( well Beth especially-LOL) have been nagging me for some good edge overlays- with some grid effects etc etc- I tell you- they are wicked with that wet noodle-WAHAHAHAHA. So I made these as a *PACK* as they can be used in soooo many different ways- and you will be able to make a ton of DIFFERENT papers by just layering the overlays, using layer styles and blend modes- use them on their own or mix them-

Check them up in more detail HERE.

And I couldn't resist playing with them either- so I made a Whimsy Arty Farty sort of paper pack with them- Rustic Garden


the preview really doesn't do the paper detail much justice(ooops)- but check them in store for a closer look - they are perfect for your springy LO's- They are only $1.50 at the moment too ;-)

So that's what's new from me- and will be in store while I am away.

While you there or if you feel like checking out something new- have a look at LUISA's beautiful new kit DAY DREAM. It's absolutely GORGEOUS, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Alpha that is included and it's on SALE @ 25% off at the moment.

OK OK- I know there's a lot of advertising today- but I won't be here to tell you what's in or happening for a while so trying to CRAM it all in for you-LOL. Don't forget the Challenges- Have you done yours yet?? Pop in to see just how AWESOME my girls did in my colour challenge this month- I can't thank them enough for the HUGE amount of AWESOME creations in there! WOOOOHOOOOOO girls you all ROCK! Don't worry- you will ALL get your posting bonuses- even if it's a few day's late-LOL

AND - hee hee, because I won't be here on the first to put up my NEW one- I am going to "sneak" it in this afternoon- but thought you would like a sneak peak at the posting bonus so long??- YOU WOULD??- hahahaha-LOL, Yeah I hear you- new colours to play with while I'm away-


Something a little softer and more springy- With your *summer* on it's way and mine disappearing ( it will warm me up-LOL) I thought it would bring us in the SUMMER MOOD. It will be in the forums later ( just after I post here-so you can get your swatch)

Jungle Girl

Had to show you this SO RENEE styled LO- isn't it AWESOME! LOVE the orange on the green background! - Renee used my grab bag contents and the new overlays for this LO ( so at least you can get a feel of what you can do with them)-

Patty aka Patamomma- girl I lost your mail- LOL(blonde I tell you) , I had saved the LO - but didn't know HOW to respond to say THANK YOU!! I LOVED it and loved the b/w photo with the eye coloration!


DOn't forget to pick up this AMAZING freebie from Jenni at  Chaos Lounge ( I didn't show it yesterday so thought I would show it today-)

AND PHEW that's I think it for now-LOL

To everyone that left me *happy hols* messages- guys THANK YOU!!! I'm GOING to enjoy it -trust me-LOL. I'll be back after the 9th of APRIL- going to LOVE that cocktail bar- WAHAHAHAHAHA. Sending lots of hugs and loves to you all- and YES I am going to MISS you all too- man I think I will probably have MAJOR withdrawals the first few day's- but I'll get in contact with you all when I'm back-
