Wooo hooo!!! My card has been chosen Top 3 at Send a Smile 4 Kids May Challenge ;-)) Yeeey!!!
I'm back!!! From Poland and in blogland, that is ;)). Poland was lovely and sunny. We were very lucky with the weather, the moment we left my home town had a really heavy snow fall which caused a total chaos...! snowing in May, whatever next??
Appart from the hairdresser not showing up, me having to come up with a presentable hair do for for my niece in 20 mins, me having to run back to the house in my heels to get the special candle my S-I-L was convinced wasn't required until the afternoon service, my niece's First Holy Communion went with no trouble at all! lol ;)
The "official pictures" haven't been released yet so here's one of the "unofficial" ones...:)
I still can't believe that the hairdresser didn't even have the courtesy to phone to say she wasn't coming... poor child (my niece that is) was very upset, as if the occassion itself wasn't bringing enough emotions for that little heart of hers... Mind you. In my days, back in 18th century or so, you had to sleep wearing hair rollers. They made those lovely deep waves in your hair as well as your head, awwww... those were the days!
Where was I... Yes, right, it's an "Anything goes" week at Sentimental Sundays. We want to see whatever your heart desires! As long as it's a piece of art and has a sentiment on it ;)).
I promised to show you the card I made for my niece's Big Day. So here is goes ;).
I was inspired by the work of Agnieszka - I have recently come across her blog, it's really lovely.
I also made a little keepsake album for a few favourite pictures from the day and a box to match the set. I will share it soon!
