Now she is 12...

Warning: this post might be a little mushy! 
I have no idea where the last 12 years have gone but it appears that Freya, my tiny baby (and she was tiny), is now 12 and about 5'4"! When I was pregnant all those years ago I had hopes of the sort of child I might have, and she has more than exceeded anything I could imagine! She is such a joy to be with and I am incredibly proud of her. In case you're curious about what my baby girl asked for as her present this year... click hereSo for my young lady I made the following - I hope she likes it!
I used Art Parts and Clearly for Art and Clearly for Art White. Freya's favourite colours are purple and black so I used those Alcohol Inks on the second flower. On the bottom flower I used PaperArtsy's Eggplant paint. The top flower has a favourite Wendy Vecchi alphabet stamp; in honour of Freya's love for reading. The centre of the flower is a Blossom Bucket embellishment holding a Maya Road bingo number.
I am back again at 10am with the latest Crafty Boots challenge so I hope you'll pop back then!

Major slushfest!!!! :):) But you're allowed, especially for a daughter with such excellent taste in colours & footwear. And of course, the flower is gorgeous.

Not mushy, just loving and I am loving the flower too. Not sure about the colour of the Dr Martens, but I guess that's fashion for you!
