It took 3 weeks to come up with this

Well, I think it was three weeks well spent. Your blending of the raster (JPEG) images and the Flash is very nicely done, and it all renders (or registers) correctly on all of the browsers on which I looked at it. The path that Tinker Bell, if you will, takes might better be programmed using actionscript. That way its path can be random -- never to repeat the same twice. Since it doesn't follow the cursive path of text of Miss Penny and the flurish beneath it, Tinker Bell might as well be random. Your winged placard holder is great -- what with the flapping wings.
Just as an aside, I'd suggest that you check the rendering of your site using more than just IE on a Windows-based system. When I viewed your index page (About Us) on Opera, Mozilla and Netscrape, the leftbottom_fairy.jpg and bottomright_dollhead.jpg do not register (align vertically) with the footer_main.jpg image. I'd suggest that you do something like slice up the footer_main.jpg image into three parts and change the way you've tablized the entire bottom area. This is likely to assure that all graphical HTML rendering engines handle this area in the same way. It's often good to keep in mind that IE is not standards compliant and is far more forgiving of formatting errors than other browsers -- well, not that yours' was an error so much as it being a thing that Microsoft and Macromedia HTML APIs do by not taking into consideration that other than IE will be parsing the code.
All in all you've put the site together quite nicely. Good luck to you.

Wow! that has just totally blown my mind, and will needless to say be passed on immediately to the web designer!
It is rather interesting though as through some of the sites I've uploaded my page to, I find it difficult for the entire image to come up.
The 3 weeks alas I have to admit was spent just on the Miss Penny bit (that's only the writing of it as well not all the fairy stuff!)I'll not even begin to tell you how long the company name took.
Thanks for all the advice, I'm sure the web designer will be able to get his teeth into it
to be honest it is a good one , but wouldn't it be great if the moving light is changed to a twinkling star moving around , just and idea

Ok thought about that one for a long time before responding.
Why would a star be more appropriate?
You'll have to talk me through that one
Thanks for your input
