The Embellishment Kits at the 'new look 'WHAT'S OLD IS NEW KITS' have been selling like hotcakes! I think at last look there were only a couple of Vintage ones left! The vintage ones are my absoloute faves and Mel just always gets colours and bits just sooooo right! Here's my interpretation of the Vintage Embellishment Kit.. (I know when something is good cos it makes me spring to my feet and get working with it straight away at first sight!!!)

Then when I saw the sneak peak to the 'Girl Embellishment Kit' weeeeeell, I had to have that too! So this is what I did with it........I really struggled getting good light to photograph this, so the colours definitely do not do it justice at all! I had a little fun with this one! The only things I've added to these kits are the background paper and alpha. The only way you wont miss out is to do monthly Subscriptions

Also, if you place WIOIN's blinkie on your blog and link it back, you could here

13TH AUG PHOTO Still not 100% and lacks a bit of colour, watching tv and still sleeping a lot 14TH AUG PHOTO You may see a lot photos of little birds here. It's another joy of mine -in the garden. We have so many beautiful daily visitors and trees full of nests. Here are three little sparrows quenching their thirst.


Blacky not to be outdone by Cosmo.....sneaks into first place just to show he cares too!

Ooooh this morning I caught a little Blue Fairy Wren with my lense!! I was so excited because they barely stay still enough to photograph!! It's blue colour is aluminating! Earlier the weather was calm and peaceful, a stark contrast to the high gusts and rain a few hours later. A LOVELY AWARD FROM LEAN

Thanks so much - your work is awe-inspiring too!!!

Luv what you've done with the WIOIN kits....I have one on the way. I am going to try to use most of the kit on 1 LO this time instead of saving some bits for later. Oh! dear your girl has been quite sick, hasn't she....hope she's back to herself fairly soon.
lol at Blackie.
