A GIVEAWAY & NEW BEGINNINGS

MY REASON FOR THE GIVEAWAY
I am finally taking the plunge and opening my own Webstore.
My store is called Alison by the Bay and will be opening on Monday 6th July.
So I have decided to have a giveaway.
All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post to be entered into the giveaway.
You will receive a gorgeous Pink Cupcake, a pretty Heart, A mixed media Tag and a Cath Kidston Soap and Bath Melt.
To be entered a second time just mention my store opening on your blog (with a link of course) and let me know.
I will draw the winner on Friday 10th July (Australian time)
Thanks to everyone for their well wishes for Max and his interview but so far no news. Don't know if that is a good sign or not.
