a day of cropping...

...must be one of the best ways to spend a Sunday, especially when the weather isn't nice enough to do anything else. I had a great time today at the Ickenham crop, very relaxing!
Tonight it's ironing uniforms and getting ready for back to school tomorrow, Katy can't wait. Not sure she'll feel the same in the morning.

a very happy mail day

I had the nicest surprise this evening - my Studio Calico Easter swap package from April came today, and I was blown away by her generosity. Basically the swap was organised by Rebekah, who linked us up with someone else to send a bundle of Easter loveliness to. I was lucky enough to get paired with April. Look at all this stuff!

April had gone to so much trouble, all the little packages were decorated with these lovely handmade tags, all different (which I am soooo using in my layouts!).This was a fab handmade magic box - April if you read this I'd love the instructions for this!
There are two packs of CTMH stamps.
All these gorgeous handmade embellishments,
and a sofa full of paper from so many different companies.

Look at all this paper! April, thank you so much you made my day.
I think it's fair to say she had a great 5th birthday. Following the party last weekend we had a chilly but very fun day in legoland on Saturday and then dinner in the evening. On the Sunday (having also been to a friend's party at lunchtime) five friends from nursery came for a princess tea party.
Katy was Barbie the Island princess; we also had an Ariel, 2 Belles, Snow White and Cinderella. Considering they are all in different schools now it was as though they had seen each other only yesterday.
