Meanwhile, baby sister Livi - Olivia really - (aged one and a half) took great delight in toddling round and fiddling with every knob, dial and button she could reach. That girl is gonna be an electronics engineer I reckon! I counted the remote controls before they set off for Cornwall this morning :))
Of course I'm biased but she is just so gorgeous - auburn curly hair and the smile would melt an iceberg! Big sister Mia is a little gem too, my special little playmate with stunning looks and so bright - if she isn't an artist then I reckon she'll be a model...but then I would say that wouldn't I?!?! :))
They'll be doing the same stopover on the way home in about 10 days time, maybe for longer next time. It was a delight having them here and Grandad didn't mind one jot when a little finger (Livi's) was pointed at the computer tower unit, then one 'boink' and a quick little 'Livi finger press'........ followed by that awful sound of a PC crashing. He's still laughing about it - totally unfazed. It would have been
So, we've been chilling out a bit since waving them goodbye - Grandad slept later on and GranDi did some crafting:
The bits and pieces were on my desk on Wednesday's WOYWW ready to made this card up so I've just played at putting it together. The gingham background paper is from the Papermania Capsule Collection 'Heather' paper pack, the heart-shaped doilies are made by Wilton and came from Joanna Sheen. I'd originally coloured one doily with a 'purple' Pro Marker but did another one using 'lilac' which is a lighter shade and matches better. The image is a LOTV Cute Square from the 'Love and Romance' set, die cut into a circle and mounted onto a very slightly bigger scalloped circle of Core'dinations card (both done using Nesties and my Cuttlebug). The lace and delicious lilac silk ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl, the bow is even but I got the camera angle a bit wrong - and the flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts. A few pearly stones and then it was done.
My very favourite colour is pink....love. love, love it!! Hot on its heels comes purple and all shades of lilac. I remember having the most gorgeous lilac party dress when we lived in Singapore - my Mum tended to dress me in blue or lilac as, in those days - I think they fade as we age, or we can't see them so well!! - I had really vivid blue eyes. So, I'd like to enter this card for the current My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge which is 'Favourite colours' - I chose shades of purple and lilac.
The house is soooo quiet - we have an e-bot thingy here and Mia has recorded a little message so, if we miss the silence, we can wave our hands in front of it and hear her chattering away and singing away:)) Bless!!
Having said all that - I'm now off to bed to catch up on lots of sleep ready for my old school reunion on Friday! Fun times ahead - and my WOYWW PiF still isn't finished - I might have to miss out :((
