Going Out

Here is the first of two new releases from Jellypark - this one is called All Dressed Up and I've coloured it with Promarkers.

The main backing paper is from Funky Hand (can't tell you which cd or download, as I found it at the bottom of my stash!) and the sparkly patterned paper is actually a pack of wrapping paper that I bought a few years ago as its really pretty (and I got lots of it for just over £1!!)

The flower is also from the wrapping paper pack and I think it was the tag - I just cut round the flower and took the ribbon off! I've added some pink floss and tied it in a bow and dotted some liquid pearls to the top corner.

I'll blog the other new release tomorrow so don't forget to check back to see what it is (unless you've already seen it on the Jellypark blog!!)

We are half way through another karting weekend and Jacob stunned us today with a lap time of 30.167 seconds - he knocked 0.6 seconds off his previous fastest lap and that was with a rather dodgy kart to start with - the clutch broke half way through the session and he was quickly back out in a different kart. Samuel has the second round of the Inkart championship tomorrow - he came 6th last month in his group so we are hoping he can improve on his times and also placing!

Samuel was awarded the Headmaster Award yesterday at school for being a polite and hardworking boy in Mr Cumbo's lesson the day before (the Headmaster teaches) and he also passed his Martial Arts grading and now is red belt - last colour before black!

Never a dull moment in our house!
