So today was the day my baby girl left home for university.
I thought I'd bawl, howl, sob & not be able to let her go.... but I didn't.
She was so excited, so ready to go, oozing with confidence and impatient for life's next big adventure. I wanted to burst with pride than into tears.
Her new home is here....
...at Royal Holloway University and....
... it's Founders building is jaw-droppingly spectacular. It's one of those buildings that you have to see to believe.
I've had a text message tonight to say 'I love it here.'...so I'm happy.
Being a sentimental ol' wotsit I made our Sophie a card and gave it to her as we left with a few 'pennies' enclosed to see her through Freshers Week.
I used the perfectly apt and cute stamp set 'Adventure is Calling' from MFT, masked off the little girl and used distress inks to create the background.
I used my Zig markers to colour her in....
...I hope you can see the colours I used.
Again I've used my Zigs just like regular markers, no water colouring.
A day I had dreaded turned out to be a beautiful day.
Our Oliver is happy as he now gets Sophie's bigger bedroom. The day hasn't ended, her bed still warm, the paint pots have been opened and already her purple walls are now a dark, slate grey.
Two happy kids...
...what more could a mum ask for?
