I've finally had a play with my long awaited Summer Kit and i have to be honest and say I did thoroughly enjoy doing so lol! I didn't think i would, what with all the hassle i had to get them, but in the end i made 2 lol!

Beth Update: We think we may have lost her for awhile ... she's not been back home for over a week now and has had limited contact with my sister. We did think that perhaps a little headway had been made Friday night when she briefly went home to change clothes, shoes and to collect a bin bag full of clothes, with the promise of returning home Saturday morning, but she never showed! Yesterday afternoon my sister text her saying "game over, you win, i dont know you anymore. My daughter left the end of May, if you see her tell her i miss her!" Nothing .... no reply, phone call, visit. It's just completely heartbreaking! And i have no idea what to say to her or what to advise she does next!


  1. fabulous card Jilli,
    so sorry to hear all that is going on with Beth.. I think that all your sister can do is let Beth know that she loves her.. and sit and wait.. my heart goes out to your sister, it has got to be so hard for her.. and the rest of you..
    big hugs Rachxxx

  5. Soooo cute!!! Luvly colours & the corner flowers look fab.

    Really sad about Beth,your poor Sister,they never stop being your babies & it is heartbreaking.
    Maybe,after giving her some space (& no home comforts!),she might realise the grass isn't greener & hopefully come back home,with the right attitude.
