90th Birthday!

Hi everyone!
Hope you are all well as some of you no we are taking care of the grandchildren for a few weeks until Adam is finished in the army next month.
We are both exhausted and my eldest son and DIL has taken them for tonight and all day tomorrow for me to go to the Ross Papercraft show at Nissan.

I was devastated to hear my beloved David Bowie passed away this week but the children have helped  to take my mind off it.
 I am lucky that I have seen him live 8 times and even gave my boys his names for their middle names. lol! Much to their disgust haha.
 Retail therapy tomorrow is just what I need!
I made this before Christmas and forgot to blog it!
I used Go Kreate XXL squares and Little B smaller squares.
