Post and run...

...today, I am at work later, but am not teaching until 11.30, so i have grabbed a couple of hours at home to make the tea, do the washing and update on here!!

Spent a good day at my new school again yesterday, the children seem lovely, and I am looking forward to teaching them for the first time proper next week, I have been booked by the school for half a days supply while the class teacher attends an appointment.

Here's today's LO, another vintage one. The photo is of my OH (at the front.. love the home knitted jumpers!) with two of his brothers back in the late 1960s up in Bradford, it wasn't too clear so I printed it onto canvas to hide this fact. As it is on canvas I have frayed the edges to add to the vintage look. The page is made using lots of offcuts from a Crate paper kit I bought at least 18 months ago, it's amazing what you can make without chopping into a full piece of 12x12. Cardstock is from the Chocolate Core'dinations set, and you may notice yet another MS punch (the grass at the front) was used. Note to self.. MUST stop buying these!!

Title is stamped and hand cut using 2 Autumn leaves alphabets, with added Crackle Accents on top.

Must go, dishwasher to empty, and 35 miles to travel to get to work :)
