A crown.....

The challenge today for "card a day"over at the CSD forum was to make a card with a crown on. Mine's a wee bit "in your face"LOL!

I used: Papermill card, all papers by Robin Carlton & Christy Lyle from the Girl next Door collection at Sweet Shoppe Designs, chipboard crown by Marah Johnson for Creative Imaginations, Doodlebug Just my Type alphabet stickers, ribbon, ribbon charm, gemstones and Kaiser gemstones, black gel pen.

Other news today - Jess walked 5 steps on her own!!!! She's been doing 2 or 3 up til now so this is the most she's managed and she was so pleased with herself! Unfortunately I only caught the tail end of it as I was out in the kitchen cooking so I'm hoping to see more tomorrow.

We're off to have a tour around the boys' new school tomorrow morning before they start properly on Thursday. Really hoping Matthew likes it as he doesn't cope well with change and if he decides he doesn't like it could set him back months. It takes him ages to settle in and he was just starting to do really well so we're keeping our fingers and everything else crossed.

In answer to some questions from Toni - yes, that was Neil with Jess in the photos and she does look an awful lot like him but does have my eyes. She loves the boys to bits and will quite happily spend all day sitting/standing around watching them and loves nothing better than when they make her laugh. Tonight when Jamie was laid on the floor she went over to him and sat on his face then because he laughed she decided to keep bouncing up and down on him! I can guarantee that when they go back to school on Thursday she'll be like a bear with a sore head and mope and pine for them all day. She really does miss them when they're not here so I'll have to try and keep her busy.

That's a fantastic card Jo! And Jess is walking, wow, where does the time go!

Jo, I think the whole POINT of a crown is to be 'in your face', don't you? The card is perfect, regal, glittery ...

I never liked change much either but always my dad was moving us about, changing jobs, to the point that now I have trouble staying in one spot.

I'm giggling over Miss Jess bouncing her little padded bottom up and down on your son's face - HA!

I agree with Toni! If you are going to wear a crown, then OWN it! It's a really fun card! Fit for a princess! :)

Hooray for Jess! My boys never did walk... they toddled a bit. Then they were off and running! lol!
