Central Park #2

Today I have the remainder of my DT work for Cocoa Daisy this month.
I can honestly say, I have had so much fun with this kit.

A page showing my birthday cards from the children that they made me.
I adore the jenni Bowlin paint I used on this.

One of this months add ons comes with a whole roll of this American Crafts Rose ribbon. Beautiful : )

I love the inside of Louis' card. Over to the left he's drawn me and him all smiley and on the right (with the glasses) are Ade and Hollie being miserable : )

Ade took a series of photos of when I opened Louis' card and Louis reading and telling me everything about it.
Each Cocoa Daisy kit comes wrapped with co ordinating tissue paper. I've used modge podge on this page to stick some of it down. Left to dy and then gesso'd over the top. Lefto to dry again and then added some paints and mists.

It's our last footy match this weekend following our first season as a team. I've made this for their coach/manager from the boys as a thank you. He is such a lovely man. He's so patient with the boys, so encouraging, someone you are so happy for your son to have as a role model in their life. I hope he knows how much we as parents all think of him. He doesn't get paid for doing this and has a young family himself (and he looks lovely in a pair of shorts too). he he he...
I've taken some lovely photos of the boys during this season and dedicated one page per child. Each child was given a piece of card to write a message on and write their name which has been stuck along side the photo.

And my Mother's Day card for my Mummy this weekend.

So that's it. Central Park, Aprils Cocoa Daisy Kit. I recommend : )

Ade and I are going to see Taylor Swift at the O2 in London tonight. I feel rather excited. I love her. I'm hoping for a romantic evening : ) We could pretend it's a date. LOL

Nothing much else to tell today. Hollie had all her hair cut off last night. A short layered bob and looks lovely. We had to dash straight off to footy last night so I haven't had chance to take a photo yet.
I'm off for a quick cuppa with a friend in a bit and I've started making my first ATC's and love them. We are doing a swap at Cocoa Daisy. I think I might make myself some to keep. They are so much fun.
Oh and we watched 'District 9' last night. Oddly wierd but good.

So that's me for Wednesday.
Thank you for stopping by, I love reading your comments : )
