Prom night

There hasn't been much scrapping happening around here.  Instead I have been running around after Alex this week and getting her ready for her prom night.  She isn't one for hair and make up usually but was happy to make the effort for this right of passage!

Nails were painted silver and glittery and hair was curled.  She had make up done professionally and nearly fell off her chair when she was offered false eyelashes (that was a no then!)


Soon it was time to put on the dress and shoes and pose for photos in the front garden...

Then we headed off to her friends to meet with the other girls for some pre-prom nibbles and drinks...




"Sandy" arrived with a toot of her unique horn and we oohed and ahhed over her - the owner had restored her himself and done a fabulous job...




Then it was time for a few photos (and lots of laughter) with Sandy and off they went (and yes I had a tear in my eye for my baby girl looked so grown up)...






The prom was held several miles away at Rivington and they had time for an impromptu photo shoot by a reservoir before they arrived (thank heavens for social media so I can nick photos off my daughter's Instagram account!)...


So whilst I said there hadn't been much scrapping there certainly have been some memories made which I look forward to getting on to some pretty paper soon!

She looks lovely. Needless to say, we didn't go for the whole hair and make up thing! Great ride :-)
