Chillin!! And finally, news on the school....

Good morning!!

Well, do you want to know what has happened on the school front... well yesterday I came home to a letter... and...


whoo hoo!!!!

I had convinced myself that we wouldn't have and life would change dramatically for us all, but somehow it seems as if that we managed to convince the appeal board that the reasons for putting our youngest in the same school as his brother were stronger than the schools reason for denying him a place in the first instance.  Relief doesn't quite cover it!!  HB opened the letter passed it to me (we hadn't got through the front door at this point!)  and both kids watched on as their parents did the full on, jumping up and down, going oh so slightly potty, happy dance round the garden :-D

I'd just like to thank all my friends and followers for all their support and encouragement... especially Amanda who seemed all set to jump on a jet plane and kick some bottoms on my behalf, lol thanks for that Amanda, just the tonic I needed :-)... seriously though, everyone's kind words meant a lot :-D

Right then, onto the important business of the day :-)
I couldn't resist, I just had to have another little play with this little cutie from The Paper Shelter, but went a bit cooler in colours this time :-)

I've had this Paper Adventures "Go Fish - Fresh Water Wash" paper in my stash for a while, uncut and just waiting to get cut up, and I don't think I have used this Marianne Die either (I know, shame on me!!), and even worse, I've never used these Prima blooms either (I know, I'm hanging my head and apologising profusely now...), but both the flowers and the die seemed perfect to go with the tropical feel of this card, and with the flower in her hair

This time I cut her out and popped her on a some circles, embossed with my current favourite dotted swiss embossing folder.

I quite like that I have only used one paper design for this card, as I thought there was enough interest in this one to carry it, and not get too fussy!!  The sentiment is by PTI, stamped with Momento.

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges

Thanks for looking, Sue xx
