t's all in the box...

Wow what a day - jam packed from beginning to end.... Set off at 9am for Eva's very first girls brigade competition. We had to sit through 18 re-runs of Daniel O'Donnell's 'Sweet Sixteen' as each team perfomed their little dance routine. Eva had practiced for months for this and did us all proud - giving it socks. Her team didn't win but that's ok as we had done the drill of 'it's not about winning it's the taking part' blah blah but she seemed to be ok with that. However another team (my SIL's) won the whole thing so everyone's happy...

Then it was a quick dash out to my class/crop in Cabra. We had a large group today which was great as we had a special presentation to make to Caroline who just got married a month ago. First we presented her with an 'explosion box' of little photos of the wedding day which is what we made in the class today...

Then we revealed the big secret we have been harbouring for a month - emails, photos and layouts have been flying back and forth and I have been terrified of me or anyone letting the cat out of the bag. The lovely crafty girls of craft supplies from all over the country (Cork to Tory island!) kindly agreed to each do a layout of the wedding photo I sent them and we presented Carrie with this Italian leather bound album of all the LO's. This is going to be a long posting so pull up a chair!

Annamarie was involved too so we will post a photo up asap.

And here's the album it was all presented in and Caroline's great reaction to getting it. I know she is absolutely thrilled to bits with it and is in awe of all the hours or work that people put into doing it for her. Just want to say thank you so much to everyone involved - you are all fantastic!
If I have missed anyone's LO sincere apologies - just let me know and I will pop a photo up...
