Chasing my Tail

I'm having a strange day yesterday, the kids were being as awkward as they could in the  morning - wandering around like a fart in a trance. Willow had a meltdown, Scott was pushing his luck to the nth degree but hey-ho.
In the afternoon we were invited to see Willow's class hosting the school assembly - it was very hard, but I managed to hold it together and not bubble. 
They all had to dress up in colours relevant to the season they were born - Willow's an autumn baby. And they sang "We're all in this together", from High School Musical which I video'd.
I can finally show you a couple cards I made a couple weeks ago, Willow's best friend at school just became a big sister so this is the card I made to congratulate her on becoming "the big sister". Willows chum always wears the funkiest tights to school and that's where I got my inspiration from.

Your pink baby card is untterly delightful with that embossed panel behind & I like what you've done for Big Sis - great fun. Sounds like you really had your hands full with everything.
