Those Lazy Summer Day's~

Hi Girls,

Busy day for me today. I have been to cut my Nana's hair.
For those of you who don't know, my lovely Nana is 94 years young and has the same Christmas Day Birthday as me!
She is a wonderful lady with the sharp brain of a woman 20 years younger, thank goodness she has all her faculties, she's amazing.

Well every 8 weeks or so, I go cut her hair and then four times a year I perm it for her, well today was cutting day! It doesn't take me long at all, about 40 minutes, but because her and my mum live together, I usually make the morning of it. We have a laugh about the latest "thing" or person. Nana likes nothing more than a talk about the latest news, we yak about anything, I love it.

Anyway after that I had the Kilimanjaro of ironing to do then, it was "Play Time"...Yah...

This is what I eventually came up with...Hope you like it.
I adore this Mo image. Reminds me so much of Summer Days in the Garden (Oh I cannot wait!)

It's a bit girly with the Pink, but I am not averse to a bit of bling, so here it is.

I have used some of my "First Edition" "Love Letters" papers, they are so sugary and pretty. I bought these buttons and ribbon from Hobbyhouse just recently. The Sentiment is Craftwork Cards, I have coloured it in with copics because it was white, now it's a very pale pink which fits in much better.

I am entering this into:
