I survived...

.. my first two days as a Primary School teacher! The children are lovely, and generally hardworking, and I'm actually having fun with people who want to learn (now that's a novelty!)

A quick post today as Katie is clamouring to get online as we still have only one computer working.

This LO includes photos taken last Autumn when Harry and I had a day out (just the two of us) at Kenilworth Castle, as he had a teacher training day and I wasn't working.

It was made as my team on UKS set the weekly challenge (see here if you want to have a go), and I had a go at drawing a sketch for others to have a go at (for the first time). It was funny, as once I got started on the page I changed my own sketch by turning it through 90 degrees!!

I used Papermania papers, a Martha Stewart punch, the title is stamped, and there are loads of tiny papermania buttons tied onto the bottom, with a stitched scallop border. Took ages, but I was at a crop chatting away, so didn't mind! The papers are made with scallop circles, wet, scrunched and a pile of around 8 stacked and stitched together. Makes a lovely 3D embellishment.

Got to go, am about to be lynched by a hovering teenager :)

WTG Ann! Glad you're enjoying Primary School teaching.
Gorgeous LO and I love your "scrunched" flowers.

p.s. I hate "sharing" computers - my laptop kept disappearing over Easter - to be found in DS's room as his computer stayed in Bristol.
