My Sister


How's your day going?
Guess what??!! It's dry in the UK again. Yay!!
I hope it stays like this for the weekend. We really need to do some work in the garden.
Hollie doesn't want a birthday party this year, she wants us to have another themed BBQ (like our American BBQ party) last summer inviting our friends.
So Ade and I are going to host a Mexican Fiesta!!
I'm so excited....thinking bright fun colours, tacos, chili, nachos, meats on the BBQ and yummy salads and desserts. The planning is the best part I think.
If you have any tips or ideas, please share : )
How about, my fave idea that's left, I'll pop a little stamp in the post to you???

I thought I'd share this LO I made a little while ago.
She's my sister but also my very best friend. I just love her to bits!!

I used Prima Papers with a Crafters Workshop template and some moulding paste for texture.
The hearts are a large piece of chipboard where I have pushed out the heart dies to using as a misting template. I've had this for years now : )  Maya Mists are my faves right now. I have an ever growing collection.
The the LO was finished with Primas,October Afternoon bits and I've handstitched my journaling lines.

Louis watches his 'sex ed' tape at school today.
Should make interesting conversation tonight : )
Second child though, not sure if Hollie has left much for him to learn.
Not one to keep stuff to herself is Hollie.
I like that she is so open and shares so much stuff with me, but she can be a shocker at times : )

Enjoy your day and don't forget those Mexican party ideas please.
