My Girl


This month we are celebrating 5 years at Cocoa Daisy.
To add to the celebrations we are having 2 weekly challenges throughout September.

Here's the first:

Gimme 5!!

This first celebratory challenge is all about the number 5.

To play along please create a LO with at least 5 layers, with at least 5 different patterned papers and 5 of something on your page.

I've used papers from the last 2 Cocoa Daisy Kits. All pretty Basicgrey papers.

I took this photo of Hollie last week.
We were having some attitude issues with her towards the end of the school year and I'm so thankful to say that she's been an absolute gem all summer long.

I made these 5 flowers by cutting the circles out the Basicgrey pp, crumpling and attaching with a pretty bg brad.

If you want to join in, play along here.
There's a lovely Crafters Workshop template up for grabs.

The first Lessology challenge is now now live here.
Go and take a look and see what Audrey, Kirsty and Yvonne have made.
I love what they've done : )

My Dad went back to the states today, so I'm feeling really tearful and sad.
We've been doing this since I was 18 and I still can't get used to it. I swear it gets harder each year.
I'll be back tomorrow with a happy face.
Lots of love xxx
