Blog takeover

My darling daughter is taking control of my blog today as I have about a thousand things to do this week preparing for my son to head off to University next Saturday. How is it possible that we only have half of what he needs together so far?

Yesterday my daughter's very good friend had her 16th birthday.  The girls have just found out recently after living in Ontario for only 3 years her dad has been transferred back to Quebec. Brooklyn wanted to make her friend something to remember their time together so she got busy in my craft room to create a frame for a photo of the two of them using some Verve goodness! The only thing I did was help tie the nautical knot.

Your daughter has certainly inherited her mother's design talent...love the photo frame and I am sure her friend will treasure this. So sad she has to move away.

What a sweet gift. Good luck to you this week...I hope you can get things taken care of quickly so you at least get a bit of time to just enjoy each other before your son heads off.
