{pattern power}

my kids and i are a watching {Team Umizoomi} and we became addicted:S
i would like to think of myself as {Milli] : Milli is at the head of the team. She's mighty good at math and full of imagination. She has a special dress that can change into any pattern with her "Pattern Power" which allows her to blend into patterned surroundings all over Umi City, and long pigtails that grow when she says "Milli Measure" that are helpful for measuring almost anything!
well, apart from the math and pigtails :P

new flowers pattern, enjoy xx

in love with those colours,
