Big Smile and Paper!

Hello friends

Thank you for your kindness and good wishes for hospital yesterday.
 Elliott is being well looked after and we are further forward in discussing and developing
ways for him to cope with wearing his mask for radiotherapy.
What also helped was a certificate arriving and here he is - one very proud boy!

It costs £25 per night for a family to stay in a Ronald McDonald House so we have
already enabled 40 nights of accommodation.
We have raised a little more than the £1,000 with the September Add-On Kit
and I will be launching the October one very soon.
We intend to keep going as this is a wonderful cause and a very
good distraction for Elliott.

VERY grateful to you all.

Talking of keeping Elliott busy....

 I've received some enquiries with regard to some additional insert paper for your Charity Recipe/Notebook.  Elliott is able to supply this paper pre-die cut in cream or white in
either the Grand Rectangle 
or Grand Large Labels shape
(so it matches your design of Recipe/Notebook perfectly).

This is Elliott's project - (very soon I will have every single member of my family die-cutting!)
You will notice the paper is slightly thicker than regular paper - always nicer for writing.
Each pack contains 20 sheets and the price is £2.50 - postage and packing is included in the price.
We had tried to list PayPal buttons for each design but they were misbehaving!
Instead, if you would like to purchase any additional paper, please email:
with your choice (cream/white, Grand Rectangles/Grand Large Labels)
and we can send a PayPal invoice or making arrangements if you would
prefer to pay by cheque. 

Take care friends, again HUGE, BIG, MASSIVE thanks to you all!

Hi Christine. It's always great to hear that things are going well for Elliott. By being positive he is helping both himself and others. He will be kept busy cutting the extra papers no doubt...another great addition to the kits. It is so good that the whole family is involved somehow. I suppose Bella could carry/drag the parcels, containing the card, papers, embelishments etc that you have ordered to make up the kits, from your letterbox to your craft room, as I can't think of a way that she can turn the handle on your Grand Calibur :)) lol. Love to you all. Take care.

Sorry I missed your post yesterday as we were up at Bart's all day. I'm so pleased to read that things are moving in the right direction for Elliot with his mask and treatment.
What a fab photo of him, such a lovely smile! Congratulations on reaching the first £1k! You've all done brilliantly.
Great idea about the extra sheets, I'll send you an email.
Enjoy your day.

PS - Love your treat bag too.

Congratulations to the Emberson family on reaching this target. Lovely picture of Elliott, he should be so proud that all your efforts are helping other families too. I wonder if someone could design a treadmill for Bella to activate the handle on the GC? Anne x
