Proud Mummy

I sit here today a very proud Mummy. Kayla received an award at her school assembly this morning which I was thrilled to see. She received it for being confident, having a positive attitude, getting along with others and being persistent. She got a cute little certificate and a voucher for the canteen. She was very excited! Also on the weekend was the Charny Carny a school fundraiser. There was a competition for the children to make a pig and Kayla wanted to give it a go. Here is her gorgeous little creation called Rose the pig.

Kayla made most of it herself I just guided her when it came to covering the pig in newspaper before she painted it. I thought she was just going to make a simple pig, but when it came to painting she decided it also needed mud on her feet. So she painted mud. Then Kayla decided the pig couldn't be a nudey rudey and she wanted a skirt for it. So she used a muffin case as the skirt. Then Rose needed a bow which Kayla glued into place. She even curled the little piggy tail before adding it. I was so proud of her end result. She took her time (something she is learning at school) and the piggy turned out fabulous...don't you think.

I have also done a little bit of creating lately, although nowhere near as gorgeous as Kayla's creations. First is a little door hanging I have made for Emily's bedroom using the very cute Kaisercraft mini-stamps. I love these new stamps they are so versatile, great for layouts and cards alike.

And here is a layout I made on the weekend using Webster's pages. This is one of my favourite photos from last Christmas.

Well that is all from me today( I really just wanted to jump on and share Kayla's exciting achievement). I hope you are all well and thanks for stopping by.

Take care
