A very busy time

but in a great way. I've been so busy with card making, minion making:-) and cake making.
We have spent practically a week in Yorkshire celebrating our grandson's 8th birthday. He took eight boys and his brother to see the minion film and then we went for pizza! The film made me laugh though three of the adults had a nap!!! I thought it would be fun to make some minions and fill with sweets - minion ones of course !!! Sam - GS - gave them out as his friends went home! His cake was actually a wrestling ring :-)
We were also there to celebrate our D.IL's 40th birthday - it's not until Monday but they will be away. There is a big party in Nov. Forgot to photograph both cards. We went for Afternoon Tea. It was superb. There was Prosecco first - oh and flowers for the birthday girl. Beautiful diamond earrings from us all. After the tea we had cocktails with mocktails for the children. At my son's request I made a giant cupcake. The whole weekend was fun and full of joy. Ate too much - had too much wine!
A few photos. Still using my phone so not the best.

My cocktail - delicious

Two of ten minions

  2. That all looks like lots of fun. The minions are certainly taking over the world. All the children - and adults - seem to love them. Well done on making ten of them. Kate x
