Eternal Love

I hope Mr Blogger is being a good boy & posting this for me, long day at work so will sort out challenges when I get home xx

Ok so I will start at the beginning......on the 31st of December last year/this year my baby girl (20) decided she was fed up of waiting so proposed to her boyfriend. He said yes!! Whoop Whoop!! Anyhoos, she did it whilst they were on the big wheel in Cardiff (where she goes to Uni). So wanting to make something abit special I asked the fabulous Andrea (owner of Sheepski) if she could do me a commission....something with a big wheel & as they both like skeletons maybees a male & female. This is the awesome image she came up with.....& I love it!!  
THANK YOU ANDREA XXX
