Clarity Cumbria July - Busy buzzing around!

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are fine and well. I am tired today - it was definitely a busy day yesterday and it started with a family trip to Clarity Cumbria. Jo Rice was as brilliant as ever ...she had some bees and butterflies for us to play with...Lucy and Penny both wanted a butterfly and I ended up with two bees - my choice indeed!!!

I love these little fellas!

I added some stickers ....

stamps and stencils too aswell as the paint.

I also made this card - I love this!

This card was made via a bleaching technique with a stencil.

Such a lovely day and then a fun sleepover in the evening for Lucy's party ...

After tea we had cake - made by my friend danielle ...

She is amazing!!!! And then they did Harry Potter charades and watched part of film 5 - The order of the Phoenix - before retiring to bed. This morning they were up for pancakes for breakfast and then games recommenced .... Harry Potter Trivial pursuit, the pea game, the chocolate game and finally another hunting for things game! It was all good fun and all of the kids enjoyed themselves - including me!!!

Have a great evening!
