I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend. Now my mum is out of hospital and the carers are all in place we can have a weekend off. On Saturday our good friend is having a birthday tea at home and we are helping. She is going to be 60 and she has 60 guests coming. On Sunday we will be celebrating our daughter's birthday which was earlier in the week. We are having a trip to Marwell Zoo which is near where we live. It should be a good weekend full of fun.

I decorated some of the inner flaps with nautical dies.
Here is the another decorated panel.
The ship in the centre is a Tattered Lace die. It only just fits in the box.
