Good morning everyone
April was such a busy month and flew by, especially with school holidays and one of our most special days of the year is in April, which is ANZAC day.
We released a Military Chipboard bundle plus four new Designer kits to help honour our men and women that have fought for peace all over the world.
(ANZAC Day is one of the most important national occasions held on the 25th of April annually. It stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp, and although started in 1915 in Gallipoli we remember those that served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. )
These layout kits are all created by Jen Hedger (‘the Boss”). Military holds a very special place in her heart with not only her husband who serves even now but her brothers and ancestors who fought bravely years ago. These are all available for retail customers to purchase on the website, a limited number only.
(links are provided under each kit)
