As promised, photos of the trip to Ronald McDonald House yesterday.
The trip to King's was a little gruelling for Elliott - yet more blood tests
which he truly hates. We will not get the results of last week's MRI just yet.
Onto happier moments...
The house was bathed in sunshine when we arrived!
Elliott's name had been engraved onto a little silver plaque and he then selected his wooden leaf.
Here it is complete with fingermarks (I resisted asking for polish and a duster!)
The Tree of Life and Elliott holding the cheque.
The total was for £750 - the amount was kindly rounded up by Barbara Fulton -
(who doesn't like odd numbers) - so kind of you Barbara, thank you.
And here I am - I think I still have my 'worried Mum' face!
To move his name up to a bird on the tree we need to raise an additional £250 so
watch out ...I'm thinking future kits for sure!
And the best photo of the day - when you're down ice cream always brings a smile!
Talking of kits - yes, there are still a few left.
Please let me know if you would like to purchase one - they are now
£6.50 each as they no longer contain a raffle ticket.
And yet again talking of the kit ...
when Emma (Cornish Emma) received her kit she decided she would prefer to make
cards. She used every bit of the kit and just added a few more die cuts, paper and cardstock.
Beautiful cards Emma and I'm delighted to see the kit utilised differently.
Now I'm so sorry...I forget to tell you how many butterflies were in the jar!
At the Charity Event there was a jar full of paper butterflies and the person who guessed
the amount (or very near) was the winner. The amount was 454 and the
winner was Pam Davies who received a bunch of butterfly goodies,
stamps, papers, embellishments and more
(can you imagine how hard it was for me to part with those!!)
Still time to enter the Mystery Prize draw.
I did have a few enquiries as to what will be in the box, a few people thought
it might be Bella!! No, I'm afraid I couldn't part with her -
it will definitely be lots of lovely craft goodies.
Take care friends - I'm back soon.
