All grown up.......

Morning lovely bloggers......and what a gorgeous
girl starts secondary school today and oh my, does she look grown up!
So in true proud Mama Jo fashion here's a little collage of her
all dressed up & ready to go!
 And not forgetting Chris who starts catering College today....but
he doesn't like to pose as much as Bex lol!
And last but not least, here's an attempt at a CAS card...why
oh why do I struggle so much with these, I see so many gorgeous
CAS makes in blogland but mine just look rubbish.....although I
LOVE the image & for once, I'm quite pleased with my colouring
and wow, wouldn't you love hair that colour IRL?
So that's it for today....I've no excuse now....I really have to do
some ironing lol! Thanks for calling....see you tomorrow!
