Lion King Happy Birthday

I’ve had a winter flu and my kids have been on school holidays(3weeks) and normally that would mean a break but I have a performing arts daughter who auditioned and got a few parts in Jack & the Beanstalk Pantomime at Spotlight Theatre on the Gold Coast,Australia.She played the hen that lays the golden egg and Milky White the Cow(who Jack sells for a handful of beans….. I’m sure she’s worth way more than that!)  and a mean and creepy mini monster who belongs to the Giant, a cute villager and a special appearance as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz (sings her solo) who gets lost and ends up in the wrong Pantomime. So she’s only 10 yrs. old  and it was hair, make up and go go go(8 costume changes per show). She gave a professional performance next to some very well know TV and Theatre celebrities and had a fantastic learning opportunity to fine tune her craft and learn from the greats in the industry and after 20 performances we are both exhausted …..so life in our household has been so full on.

I’ve also just added the adorable  kissing bear at the top of my blog please take as many kisses as you need!

Back into card making which I love and I used this Party Animal paper by Kaisercraft which is so much fun to use.I wanted to emboss the striped paper for added affect and I’m so happy with the result, it really ties the project together.
