Killer Heels and a Blog Hop

Well it's happened at last, those Bugs are out of hibernation and boy oh boy are we stepping out in style! It's all happening this week at


 a new challenge
 a fabulicious new release 
and to celebrate that....a blog hop!

First things first, the challenge theme
 well when you see these new images you will agree it has to be


Now the hop
You should have arrived here all the way from Kansas and the very lovely  Michele  so lets not keep you waiting, you've had a long trip!

Are they heels or are they heels? As much as I love these shoes I'm not sure I could walk in them anymore!! I bought the most sparkalicious pair last year and nearly broke my neck in them lol (if I remember I'll take a picture of them and add it to the bottom of this post)
I hope you can see all the glamour dust from there, I was sprinkling like crazy lol
The sentiment was computer generated and so very true!!

Right back to business.... the rules of the hop.
Visit all the blogs in order and leave a comment on each one,  if you get lost don't worry just head back to the main challenge blog for the list in order and don't forget to leave a comment there too.

At some stops you will collect a letter - from me it's the letter C
When you have all the letters email the answer to Kerry at

 next stop on the hop is my lovely retired Bug Pami

You can find all the details and all the info of what fabulicious prizes Kerry is giving away over at the main challenge blog.
I can't wait to see what my teammies have created so I'm off to hop too!

Edited to add my sparkalicious Gina shoes! 

Happy Hopping

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
