Easter Fun

The staff council at work held an Easter Craft competition last Thursday, to make an Easter bonnet, card, cake or decorate an egg; there was also a competition to guess the number of chocolate eggs in a jar (I didn't win that, which is probably a good thing!) and a cake stall plus a raffle of a beautiful cake.

I decided to make a papier mache egg using an Easter Egg mould, which I then painted and decorated.  I was so pleased to be told I had won first prize, for which I got a lovely Thornton's Easter egg.  As the winner I also got to choose the charity to which the proceeds of the day would be sent, and I asked for it to go to the Smile Train, a charity dear to my heart which arranges for the repair of cleft lips and palates in children in some of the poorest countries in the world.  The £188.00 raised will pay for one lucky little one to have their surgery.
