Ah, my apologies for the mix-up on this post. You see, this seemed to have gone "live" on a pre-set date. So, even though I wasn't quite finished with the post, it just got published while I was away. So, sorry about that.
As some of you may have heard via my social networks, the delay for this party is due to my li'l girl getting sick over the weekend. Unfortunately, she became so weak and dehydrated that she had to be rushed to hospital on Monday morning. So, everything else had to be put on hold.
In any case, she's doing much better now. Under observations still, but hopefully, on the way to recovery. And, I'm also hoping that we won't have to make many more emergency trips to the hospital. Soooo stressful and exhausting.
Anyway, with that aside for now, it's time for us here at the Studio to have our little 52WoC party to celebrate. Please grab some virtual party food - I prepared some of my yummy baked goodies for you all... scones, banana cake, pandesal, blueberry muffins, crescent bread rolls (my attempt at making croissants!), and chocolate brownies...
Now, on to our party participants. Each one's a raffle entry to win two prizes on offer: a party pack gift and a $25 Paypal cash or certificate to Flickr, etc (winner's choice). So, here we go...
