Busy Week

Sorry I've not posted for a while. I've been having a rather busy week. On Tuesday I went into school to do baking with some Year One children (aged 5-6 years) including my daughter Ellie. It was great fun and the kids really enjoyed it too.

On Monday I decided I would do a dummy run at home so that I wouldn't look like a complete novice when I made them in school with the kids. I had decided we were going to make Teddy Bear Fairy Cakes. Anyway the trial batch I made went down a storm and were all gone by Tuesday evening. So on Wednesday after school I helped Josh to make some more and these are the ones he made. Aren't they fab!

Here's a close up of one of them. I can assure you they tasted as good as they look! Yum!

Not so good though - my Mum isn't feeling well at the moment. It sounds like she has a Flu bug. Not nice! Anyway I re-vamped this card to send to her as I thought it might help cheer her up. Originally it had the vertical ribbon on it, the tree picture which came with some free papers from a magazine and the two sentiments at the bottom from the same set of free papers.
I added the horizontal ribbon, the Tilda and the Prima flowers at the top.
Hope you feel better soon Mum!

Well done Josh, they look yummy!

Sending best wishes to Dee too. Love the card, despite Tilda!
