It's been a GOOD Friday!!! {Pretty Paper Petals new stock & a Double Feature!!}

Get it?!  Good Friday??!!  Well it IS Good Friday today & I do hope it has been a GREAT Friday for you all...  Happy, happy Easter - I hope you have all had a blessed day surrounded by friends, family and/or those you love.  My day started with breakfast in bed from my dear hubby, who just happens to be one of the last gentlemen standing, I mean Mother's Day, yes...then I expect breakfast in bed, but today I fully expected to start the day washing the dishes :)

First up, somehow I missed out on posting the Pretty Paper Petals Happy Hour post, which is sadly now over :(  BUT I can show you the goodies available in stock right now & STRONGLY SUGGEST you head on over there now & decide on what you would like :)


 What with the next royal wedding fast approaching there are some Grande new additions in store...Just check out these DIANA BUDS...

 

More gorgeous colours of those in stock too...along with the COUNTRY PRINCESSES...



Not only are there gorgeous blooms, bunting, other assorted cuteness...but there is also a Pretty Paper Petals CLUB you can join to ensure that you NEVER miss out on a new release!  Great value too - see!!


Those are prices for Australia but international customers are MOST WELCOME & shipping shouldn't be excessive as the blooms & other goodies are all light, small but they pack a big punch when on a layout :)

Browse through the blog here to take a look-see at how the Design Team are busy using up all their Pretty Petals - hopefully mine will arrive soon as I can't wait to get going with them on my pages!

Now, when I woke up this morning I had 45 e mails on my blackberry...choke...you know when you forget to click "unfollow" & everyone who comments on a layout in a gallery after you...well, all their notifications come to you...???...yeah well it was something like that LOL...and as I was busy binning them all I saw one from THE COLOUR ROOM.  "Your layout has just been Featured..."  Say what?!?  Yup I gulped & read it again & sure enough...tadadada!!!
I join in there purely for "fun" & to keep on learning & experimenting, getting "out there" & interacting with like minded souls...I don't ever expect anything in return at The Colour Room, the work is of an exceptional standard & with over 3 000 members & over 100 people participating on average per challenge, the likelihood of ever "being featured" as one of ONLY FIVE entries is against the odds.  But I did it this week!  Woo Hoo!!

And I shall be back again this week, God willing...I like to discipline myself to take part at The Colour Room & Colour Combos Galore every week if possible, as Colour Challenges are my ultimate fave!  So here's this week's palette...a little dramatic perhaps, but I shall tone it down with a nice devonshire cream methinks...oh well, who knows what I'll do yet but I'll keep you posted LOL...




And THAT'S NOT ALL FOLKS!!!  Blow me down if I don't get ANOTHER E MAIL from Colour Combos Galore - Yikes - now I really DID think I was hallucinating!!  But I grabbed the laptop, checked in to my favourite site & there I was again!!!  Featured in the line up for the week & in the side-bar too!

 
 Along with my dear & sweet friend Eila - who doesn't have a blog & I keep telling her she needs to start one!  {listening Eila?!} but she is the most wonderful & faithful commenter in both the CCG & TCR galleries.

And HOW is that combo for DIVINE???  Can't wait to play this week with those gorgeous chalky pastel colours - my favourites...

So now can you see why I said it was a VERY Good Friday? :-D  And now I am off with my family & friends to watch "Country Strong" at the movies, which should be the perfect way to wind up a glorious day!

Looks great to me & that way you don't forget from month to month & a little envelope or box won't cost much & probably won't attract any duties...Easter Love everyone <3
