The Story of the Girl Date.... (and a winner)

I'm very excited to say that I'm a Guest Designer at the Japanese store and blog "Casket" this month. I'm there in my role as a Jenni Bowlin Ambassador as they're celebrating the arrival of the new release JBS in the shop.

Casket have got a challenge running at the moment and we've teamed up together to bring it to you.

The challenge is to make a layout based on this sketch designed by our very own May Flaum. I love how open to interpretation this is. You can see how in my example I changed one of the photos into a Bingo Card for a start.

My layouts tells the story of how occasionally I take my daughters on a 'Girl Date'. If I'm lucky enough to have an afternoon off work then I'll take Moodles with me to pick Munchy up from school and then we might go to the shopping centre to run errands and stop and have a treat on the way.

I laughed as I snapped this photo. Here we are, 3 girls enjoying our quiet moment. And then I realise it's quiet only because they're both stuffing their faces with donuts! Little Princesses that they are. Still working on their table manners I guess. I try to remain civilized and gently sip at my coffee.

I've used up lots of fun little JBS embellishments on my page, especially in this cluster where the other photo was supposed to go.

If Google Translate is telling me the truth, there's some great prizes up for grabs for a random participant in the Casket/JBS challenge. Go ahead and check it out over here (and see what the other Ambassadors did with this sketch).

And speaking of Winners, it's time to announce who won my March Whimsy Giveaway....

Can you read that? By random lucky dip, the winner is...
