Clever Caitlin :)

I love crafting with kids, they think so much more outside the box than adults. This is a layout Caitlin did all by herself, only thing I helped with was how to spell the title, and the little red stripy bit on the side is a chair as she loved playing musical chairs at the party! lol.
Well today has been all about sorting the loft and getting things to sell. Seems like I'm always having a clear out and trying to sell one thing or another but its the only way we can afford treats really. PLus its better than stuff just sitting about not being used, particually in our teeny house.
Did find time for some crafting though :) I'm making the balloon weights for a friends wedding next month, she was the one who lost her baby girl last year so i really wanted to do something nice for her, her colour scheme was green, white and silver with pink added in the represent her lost little girl. This is what I made.
You can't see it in the photo but the birds wing and the roof has been sprayed with glimmer mist so it sparkles. I always struggle with silver as I think most silver papers either look grey or tacky, so thought this was a good way around it. She seemed pleased so thats the main thing :)

Funny comment from the kids today:
Cameron - I have a secret, do you want to know it?
Caitlin - Yeah!
Cameron - Do you really want to know?
Caitlin - Yeah!
Cameron - Are you SURE you want to know?
Caitlin - No I don't care now.
The look on his face was priceless!
