A Week to Celebrate

It has been another very busy week for me as my Mum celebrated her 70th Birthday yesterday, a birthday tea with family and friends with of course lots of presents and a lovely cake!!

This is the special card I made for my Mum, the Memorable Moments stamp set is a "must have" as it is perfect for special birthdays and anniversaries. I made some bunting to match this card but I didn't manage to take a photo yesterday - I will try & take one over the weekend when I'm there. I used the Pistachio Pudding re-inker to dye some Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon to match my project.

I have used some of the gorgeous NEW Stampin' Up! colours, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe, not long to wait until the new Stampin' Up! catalogue launches on 2nd July!!!!!!!!

Another celebration this week was for my lovely Lucy - I nominated her for an award through The Children's Foundation and we took her to Newcastle on Wednesday to collect her award.  Lucy is always very patient and helpful with Philip and she always plays with him, even when I know she would rather do something else. I never wanted Lucy to have so much responsibility for Philip but the sad fact of life is that she does and she does a great job of taking care of him.

Lucy also came home today from school with a "Star of the Week" award for "being a wonderful and caring member of her class".  I'm really proud of her, she is growing up so fast and will soon be leaving primary school.  
We had a letter to inform us that her new school has been chosen to be filmed for a documentary for CBBC following the transition from primary to secondary school - when she visited Conyers yesterday the children were  interviewed & had their photographs taken. This is a long term project filming over several months with fixed cameras around school and it will be shown next summer to help children to feel more confident about moving schools.
