Lexie's card and present for Lucas' Birthday.

Today Lexie has spent the day with me and we have had a great time.
We have been crafting together, we have been swimming with my sister Maggie and her grand-daughter Eva, we have had lunch at McDonalds, in fact we were having such a good time that I forgot to take her for her dancing lesson! Oh dear!  Another CRAFT moment.......
Can't Remember A Flipping Thing!! Senility rules OK!.

here are the card and the present Lexie has made for Lucas.

I taught Lexie how to use the paper trimmer today - can't believe how accurate her measurements were!!
She also stamped the sentiment so straight it puts my stamping to shame!!
She used a peel off for the 10 and used the Big shot to cut the letters (I had to help turning the handle as it was hard work!)
The stars were punched.
Here's the door hanger she has made for Lucas.
She painted the gray-board this morning and left it to dry for a few hours.
She designed this all by herself and even cut the Big Shot letters herself this afternoon
 - even though it was a bit of a struggle!!
She found some matching orange ribbon and stuck that across the hanger, then added all the letters and stars.
I can't believe how great this has turned out - although she is my grand-daughter so I expect it's in the genes!!

Well done Lexie -fabulous work!!
