KimB's Colour Challenge Freebie- and a new CU pack!

I was up at 4.30am this morning to take part in the ESS Speed Scrap. It was such fun and a bit hectic, I always get into a panic thinking I won't have enough time to finish, but I made it!! I used the charity kit A perfect Fairytale, it is HUUUUGE, and has so much variety, just perfect for the little princess in your life!My LO
I have a new commercial use pack going into my shop tomorrow, these are all layered templates.
And here is my freebie for KimB's colour challenge, early I know, but I just love the colours and decided to do a sea theme although the colours are far from "sea" The boat, waves, fish and seaweed are all hand drawn by me and will be included in a commercial use pack I am busy with!

Don't forget about my little contest on until Friday!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

By TiggersmomShe is also did this gorgeous one with my Perhaps Love kit
As you may notice my blog is looking a bit different!!! I saw Mel's blog and fell in love with all the space and just her whole set up is fabulous!! I found this site called The Cutest Blog on the Block with all sort of tips and advice and custom blogs etc. Becky changed my template to give me 3 columns and over the next few days I will attempt to sort out the header and background, I have a slight working knowledge of html, but I was really nervous to change my actual template as the last time I did it,I lost all my links and blinkies and info in my side margins. Becky literally took a few minutes to change my template and I still have all my info, so thanks Becky, I am really thrilled!!

Spirit of Summer- HUUUUUGE Charity Kit!!!

Spirit of Summer is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian bushfire Appeal. Not only has this effected Australians, but human beings the world over. 29 Australian and international designers have banded together to help support many Australians, animals and communities decimated by one Australia's worse national disasters.
What happened? On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am. By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters. Trees ignited in the blink of an eye. By the time people heard the roar, it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.Unfortunately no one or thing could have stopped this inferno that wiped out communities, bushland, and lives within minutes. Many towns now cease to exist!.After watching interviews with survivors, many say that they cant put into words what they went through, saw or felt on that day.Here are just a few pictures(courtesy of google,The age,sbs &abc Aust.) of this horrible disaster:

Why is this charity kit different?No money will change hands at Snap N Tag (our host website). We are asking for your support by donating DIRECTLY to one of the following charities:

can be made

What do I get for my donation and where: You will be helping the people of Victoria, Australia most importantly, but you will also receive this amazing MEGA kit (see below). There are 167 papers, 326 elements, 2 Alphas and a glitter syles pack as well.How amazingly fabulous is that and you can receive all of this for as little as a $5.00 donation.(**Vouchers will be emailed upon receipt of proof of Donation**)
But thats not all! For showing us how much you all really care, you not only get the MEGA kit but receive a Quickpage Album if you donate over $10.00...WOW how awesome is that!
