I also came across some mini brads; they seemed perfect for this LO, although Shimelle is bound to have a prompt specifically for brads later this week, isn't she?
Oh, and see that butterfly? It's actually a metal brooch, given to me by my mum because she thought I might be able to "use it". Thanks, mum. You were quite correct!

I loved putting this LO together, as I have far too many flowers ~ 4 cookie jars full! I set myself the extra challenge of randomly selecting a cookie jar and only using flowers from that jar. I think it's worked out quite well. I even like the clashing colours, because sometimes nature is exactly like that!

And as you can see, inside the card is a fab shot of the little people clustered around the teacher while she takes the register.

Photo: DS, 28 June 2009
Originally, the plan was for Sib and Nephew to come and spend a week with us, but an appointment has cropped up for Nephew that can't be ignored. Given that I can't remember the last time I saw Sib in person (last August, we think), it'll be great to be just the two of us with our sons (and the pooch) for a time.
The added extra for me were these beautiful daffodils.

And you know what? I shall be eternally grateful to K of Warrnambool, Australia for introducing me to scrapbooking.
My sister had posted recently about mittens I bought her a few years ago, and I commented that I still liked them, but not as much as the Olympic ones. Jane saw this comment and that was that. She also very kindly popped into the parcel an Easter sticker book for DS and a box of marshmallow chicks.
I am completely overwhelmed by her generosity and it's not often that I am stuck for words, I can tell you. Jane ~ thank you a million times, and do let me know if there is anything I can send you from 'home'. (Jane is a Brit masquerading as a Canadian!)

I also added a lift-up flap to the page, so there is somewhere to record the journaling. Given how limited the colours in the photo are, I'm quite pleased with the end result.
Autism. Such a small word, only six letters long. Autism. Such a big word, powerful enough to fill a parent's heart with dread and fe...
