Today is our little grand daughter Lauren's 5th birthday,   This LOTV image  just suites her she is a little sweetie.   She was born the day after the last election.  Will it be that on her 10th birthday we will be waking up to find out who is in power too???

Lauren's card.      :- 7x7 pre fold card
                            :-  back ground paper ( first edition Dream catchers)
                            :-  LOTV image
                            :-  Happy Birthday stamp - just rite

The photo of Lauren was taken when she was trying on dresses, I do wish they had brushed her hair ( sore point with me )  but anyway she was in seventh heaven while trying on all the dresses?

Nothing much going on here today, just normal everyday things, which makes a change,  

Thank you for all your comments on the evening invitation.  As I said Gillian's friend choose what she wanted, I just made them up.   Then as a bride to be  she should have what she wants, not what on offer!  She still hasn't given me what she want to put on her inserts.   She is very laid back and I think she thinks " what's the hurry".  Maybe I will be lucky and get them soon, I don't think she realises that until they are put in I can't finish them?   No way could I do this as a business and I have told Gillian if any other friend asks the answer is " NO".

Have a good day what ever you are doing, hopefully the weather will stay nice.
