Spotlight Masking technique video plus Fiji

 Good Day
   Wow so much happen in a week I don't even know where to start. First today card is a fun technique call Spotlight Masking really it's 2 technique combine together. You will see in the video at www.frenchiestamps.com how simple it is to make this fun card. I use Baja Breeze, White and Soft Sued. The top card I use the Delicate Design Folder # 127023 and the Large Scallop Edgelites # 127019. Stamp set Blooming with Kindness page 87. Voila!

Now I want to say thank you to all for participating in the Mystery Host Deanna Goforth from MT won the 257.57 in Stampin'Up! product of her choice and Carole Toppen from MT won the ink family. Yes strange both are from Montana.... How many would like to see a New Mystery Code every other week. Many ask me to have this at all time but before I get started on a new one I want to see how many would take advantage of this Mystery Host. So fare the result been fantastic. Shoot me a e-mail or comment if you approve of the mystery code every other week. My thinking is why not having a lucky winner every other week it's doesn't cost any extra to enter the code so tell me what you would like.

I just realize that I hit 2 millions hit on my blog so I think it's time to celebrate.... so soon I'm regroup from Fiji...this weekend I hope I will have some blog candy so stay tune and again thank you so much for all your support.

 Fiji rain or shine we're enjoying the beach! This was the first day. Rain for 2 days then sunny and beautiful the rest of the week.
 This is Fiji we hired a Taxi Men to take us around one day so we can see the real Fiji. At the resort it NOT Fiji people living so this was one of the best day to see what Fiji is all about. The main income there is Tourism and Sugar Cane.  

 Blue water for snorkeling and yes it's was pretty and lots and lots of fish. 
 Plantation Island where we stop for lunch after snorkeling. We travel by sail boat this day so that come with a sun burn :) 
 Yes this is not what I call Fiji it's the resort it's not the way the Fijian live trust me on this one.
 Visiting a village with the taxi man.... what a eye opener. We have so much compare to then and we still wish for more something is wrong we us American right:( I'm so bless to have everything just by a click and a solid house plus some window that open and close!

 The last part of this day was DIRTY ha! mud bath so fun but so muddy.
This is it for the Fiji trip for now I have lots and lots more picture but this wrap up many days of the trip. One place that I didn't bring my camera is when we help well Stampin'Up! crew clean and painted the entire hospital that was amazing how much we did in only 4 hours. I will find someone with picture and share them with you all. That was more then a eye opener trust me you will not believe how dirty it was even if I explain you will not believe me without the picture. 

Okay I think I answer all my e-mail from last week. If you e-mail me and I didn't respond yet please e-mail me again I bet it got lost or deleted by mistake. 
Have a great day! and Enjoy the video!
