I’d got a few ideas going around in my head but, as ever, had left starting my page until the last minute. Chiara went to Brownies Wednesday night and made me a wonderful card and decorated a box containing two little chocolate eggs. And the Brownies also completed a little quiz to find out just how much they actually know about Mum!
Perfect timing! And I was pretty impressed at how many of the questions Chiara got right. Even more impressed that she has already perfected the art of deducting years from my age without any prompting whatsoever! (I am 42, Chiara put 41 so close enough). The other answers were all spot on (apart from the flower which is actually Lily, but out of the options given Rose is a pretty good choice).
Then yesterday morning I received a box of gorgeous stuff from Jo at Box Room Booty. Look at those colours in the Hambly print – aren’t they just so delicious?! As Chiara rightly pointed out, my favourite colour is green so I just had to use this paper on a page about myself.
