Surprise!

My mum recently surprised my family by arriving unannounced at our door. we had just finished dinner, and our doorbell rang. Our doorbell doesn't often ring, as most people just arrive at our back door LOL
When we answered there was my mum.
She had driven the 8 hours to be with Charlotte for her birthday. How special!


A comp I have entered had a surprise challenge thrown in this week...the scrap something 'surprising'. To use the word 'surprise' in the title, and create a mono chromatic LO

So I figured that mum's birthday visit was an excellent surprise! This is my fave bit...the twine and the button :)

Now, I don't know if I like this or if it looks like a flamingo had just vomitted onto a 12x12 sheet of cardstock...
Thanks for stopping by!
