Still going!

Hello again!

Well whose a good girl then?!  Not quite a post every day, but getting there.  Still no cards for challenges though, I think maybe I'm going at this the wrong way round.  I should probably make a card with a challenge in mind, rather than making a card and then wondering if it would fit any challenges!

So card for today is another Lili of the Valley one - surprise, surprise!  Still working my way through the freebie images.

Here we go:

 Detail shot of the flowers in her bouquet:

The details:
Freebie LoTV image, coloured with promarkers.  Die cut onto nesties
Marianne Creatables swirl
Main paper is from My Minds Eye - wild asparagus paper pad, the back panel is a K&Co scrap, the front one no idea just from my scraps box.
No idea with the ribbons either - they are just out of my big box
Ditto for flowers!
Sorry not much detail is there!

Now onto my waffle - today was the end of an era for us.  Our last ever PEEP group - Peers Early Education Partnership - it's a particular type of children's group that focuses on early learning and our one was run by the local SureStart centre.  It was absolutely brilliant, I made many friendships there, and today was the last one that we could go to as Emily is now too old with her being 4 and starting school in Sept - we have been going to the various stage groups since she was 6 months old.  There was a lovely little party and they all got certificates - so cute!

The start of the end - so many things we won't be able to go to now that she is starting school.  I know there will be a new stage in her life soon which will replace the things we won't go to - but at the moment I am missing my baby!

I will get a grip and get over it, but tonight I am going to wallow in memories.

Best wishes to all
