On Friday DD2 had an ugly bug ball at pre-school. She went as a ladybug, had her face painted and made this cute paper ladybug. (Credits Weeds and Wildflowers - full credits here )Yesterday I went to a scrapbooking session run by my scrapaholics group at our local library. Its was fantastic and I met lots of local people I know from UK Scrappers forum.
