Not just beauty but beauty with brain.

If you read my last post, I posted two photos of Olivia my beautiful niece. Olivia lives in Australia and today, her mum, my sister Helen sent me this email, which makes me a very proud aunty.


Olivia and some of her classmates entered a book illustration Art competition for Hinze Dam Alliance school competition. Her group won the finalist award for their category.
Olivia is the overall winner in the whole of South East Queensland. The judges described her as "Rembrandt" and her book will be published for the project. She won a lovely glass trophy and $50.00 voucher. Her friend, Bella came second.

The VIPs are the footballers from Gold Coast Titans. (Australian VIPS)

We are so very proud.



I emailed Helen to send a photo of the prize winning illustration. I am too impatient to wait for it, so I will do another post when I get it.

Helen herself is very artistic,
