Yeah it worked, glad that pesky link is fixed, I'd hate to have to miss this - Julia this is just beautiful! The bright bold colors and playfulness of it. You could get lost just looking at all the twists and turns, like going into a fun and joyful little world. I especially love that sun - you bet it made me smile!

Thanks too for all your kind words and encouragement, I don't know what I'd do without my bloggie friends!

Happy SS!
