The Pinata





One of the highlights of Henry's party was the pinata. For me, a highlight because it was very close to the end of the party; for the kids a chance to hit something with a stick, without getting into trouble AND the reward of lots of lollies after destroying the dragon, a win-win situation. Only a few tears, quite a bit of shoving and some reluctant sharing, most of the kids were very happy. There was certainly a take no prisoners mentality setting in which quite honestly was a bit on the scary side. Matt was in charge of the stick/blindfold and did very well to escape from this uninjured (although less lucky in the "lets get Henry's brother" general stampede and tackle session...

Unfortunately the photos weren't terrific, lots of kids make for crowded photos but nice to get it scrapped with the latest sketchy Thursday sketch. I was also very pleased to be selected in their top 5 picks for the March guest designer spot with my 80's lo.

I have used some of the latest Cocoa daisy kit, I ordered lots of patterned paper this time as I am using it more and more.

Have a fun day xx
