Appeal and a quick share...

Hi lovelies,
Well it just doesn't seem right to have that as a topic for this post but I have two things I want to share and need to upload the layout so I can link it to a gallery.

Firstly and most importantly is the blog I've set up for the Queensland flood victims. As the rest of Australia sits by helplessly I thought it would be great to get the crafting community banded together as we have before with the Black Saturday bushfires and other other appeals and get crafting some gifts of love for the people affected and their families.
As this is a quick post I won't go into too much detail here but please go and check out the blog. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support shown so far and eagerly await the first lot of projects to be organised into a care package. I just know our flood victims are going to really appreciate it.
The link to the blog is on my side bar called Rising Waters Flood Appeal for Crafters. Please share the love and post it on your blog and let family and friends know that it's not just for papercrafters, but ALL crafters.

Secondly, I'm just uploading my challenge layout for Kraft It Ups January challenge which was to use the word SUMMER on your page. Seems very ironic to be considering the first part of the post ;P
Anyway, it's a photo of my Jacky boy relaxing on Austinmer beach and boy do I wish I was there right now!!


Cheers
Shaz
