I’m back – refreshed & revived after a week in a luxury holiday house with my family. It was a very special holiday organised by my parents, which brought together Mum, Dad, my, my husband, our girls, my brother & his girlfriend. What was the occasion? Mum & Dad both turned 60 within days of each other. They have a habit of running away for milestone birthdays. 40 was spent travelling around Australia, 50 was spent in England/Europe, so when 60 was approaching, I got a little cheeky and suggested that they take us for the ride this time. I’m glad they did – it was a lovely week of eating, sight-seeing, ‘chilling out’ (as much as you can with two little ones in the mix), swimming & playing games. We’re looking forward to planning another one – hope we dont have to wait until the ‘fossils’ are 70!!!
Mum is my stamping partner in crime, so I knew I needed to make something amazing for her card. One of the special activities of the holiday was a family photo shoot – we got tizzy-ed up with pretty hair (Becc Jansen) & makeup (Emily Casella) then had had Kate & Sheree from K & S Photography come to take photos of us all. It’s been a long time since we had any family photos taken, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to update the current collection. On that line of thinking – I thought a screen card would be a perfect tie-in for the ‘make-over’ theme. And since I am in love with Kinda Eclectic at the moment – which luckily has a great summer, carefree vibe – the creativity just flowed from there.
Happy birthday to my very wonderful Mum, who means the world to me. Kelly x
