You Are The Bestest


Gee i'm so pleased it has finally stopped raining, if only for a couple of days, as H has come home twice this week with his PE kit on, as he had either jumped in a puddle or fell into a muddy patch and it's been a nightmare trying to get his clothes washed and dried !!!

The image i've used is very unloved, as i have never used it before - i guess i thought the flowers should be yellow, but recently i have seen the flowers coloured in other colours, so i thought i would give it a whirl, i've also teamed it up with some really old Papermania papers, even using some of the papers to cut out my Tattered Florals (another much neglected item !!!), the punched middle is MS.
