Thank heavens for little girls

Yes indeed thank heaven for little girls. As the mother of a bruising 5 year old boy I rarely get all froo froo and pink when making little gifts for him but thanks to my beautiful niece, Evee who I made these treats for I have an excuse to get all girly :D

This also fits nicely into the spring challenge over at a passion for papertrey. A tip for you too, if you haven't got straw use some natural raffia, look like the real deal but not as smelly :D

Oooh don't forget to check back in a while for some BLOG CANDY! have a great day & see you soon xx
