Mother Daughter Challenges Return

At half term, I visited Spain with a friend. We stayed with another friend which meant that it was waaay cheap but we had to sleep on a cold, hard, tiled floor. And we flew Ryan Air which means hand luggage only so we had sleeping bags but no sleeping mats of any kind. But no matter, it was fun! Plus we were pretty tired from dashing about all day.

And oh-my-goodness we drank. This isn't what you think though. Because we drank orange juice.


I like orange juice as much as the next person, but I've never wanted to make a page about it before. It turns out this is because I'd never had orange juice in Spain before. It's awesome. And pageworthy. Sooooo fresh and sweet but tangy, not insipid and really bright yellow. So yummy. Orange juice will never be the same to me again.

Anyway, I made this as one of the Mother-Daughter challenges. I set this one and the topic was "Pink, Paint and Pleats". Feel free to give it a shot. Although you have to hunt quite hard to find the paint on mine.* And thanks to Shimelle, this picture should display bigger. Fingers crossed...

P.S. Next week I'm going to experiment a bit with the things I post here. Maybe a tutorial or something, but I want to have a bit of a crafty focus. Stay tuned...

*I had to have 2 goes at this challenge as it turns out that pink didn't go with the first one. Ne'er mind.
