Gift wrapping

Good Morning,
A short week this week after the bank holiday weekend, hope you had a good one and were able to relax a bit and enjoy.
Yesterday was my daughter, Jennifer's 30th birthday and I don't know where the years have gone!
She was born prem, 9 weeks early at 2lb 15oz so every birthday is special and this was no exception.
I organised a few surprises for her, one of which was to gather friends and family for a celebration lunch at a lovely pub/restaurant.
She had no idea anyone else would be there except for her, Paul and I as we had already done a few things and she had been given her presents.
We had a lovely meal with family on Friday evening, went to local gardens and historic house on Saturday and had cream tea and she had a day out in London on Sunday with family.
So thinking it would just be a quiet meal on Sunday she was very surprised when more family and friends joined us.
It was a brilliant day and such a happy time.
I decided to try something different for her present wrapping and chose kraft brown wrapping paper which I stencilled using 
 Imagination Crafts Starlights and stencils.
I was so pleased with the result and will definitely be doing this again.
You can really personalise gift wrap in this way and keep to a colour theme too, Jennifer's colour is purple.
Hope you have a good week, at least it will be a short working week.
Sending love and hugs xxx
