My Layouts of New Products…

My dear grandson Lee in one of his more playful moods. I love him wearing this black hat backwards.

For this LO I used my Cranberry Crush Kit, Cranberry Crush AOP and Wild Cranberries Kit.


Parnell Village in Auckland is a group of shops in Parnell proper interconnected with cobbled walkways and are all original turn of the century villa dwellings, a very pretty place to browse the shops or sample the delicious cafe fare.

I used my Quiet Pleasures Kit and Quiet Pleasures 2 Kit (soon to be uploaded to the store and will be a posting bonus). The Quiet Pleasures Kit will be the next EEE Challenge running from August 2 to August 8.


Another of my DGS feeding the ducks at Paradise Valley Springs in Rotorua. Rotorua is an area of thermal activity in the central North Island of New Zealand and is a wonderful tourist destination with lots of sights to see and plenty of activities for young and old.

The kits I used are not in the store yet but will be soon. Sherbet Fizz and Sherbet Dab (this will be a posting bonus). The Sherbet Fizz Kit will be the EEE Challenge kit for August 9 to August 16.

Musket Cove, Malolo Lailai Island is part of the Mamanuca Island chain off mainland Fiji, which is where our time share is located and it doesn’t have internet connection – shock how will I cope – of course my trusty lappy is going with me so I can get a little bit of work done in between soaking up the sun, reading, relaxing and swimming in the beautiful blue waters ahhhh! So if you don’t see me around you know why but I’ll be thinking of you all :)

See you in a week or so.

Entrance to Musket Cove and our Bure.
