Exam News

Well it was A level results day today, and DD did pretty well... she needed a C (in biology) and 2 Ds in her other subjects, when we got to school she had indeed achieved a C and 2 Ds, but not the C in biology.... a few worrying moments followed, but when she got onto the UCAS site she had been offered a place at her first choice, so in a months time my eldest will be leaving home to go to University!! I'm sure there will be a few scrapbook pages in that!

A quick page to share... I know it is the school holiday and I should be scrapbooking like mad, but we are decorating at the moment, so I'm helping Kev revamp the kitchen and spare bedroom, and, if we get time, the study too.

I made this page using the Autumn leaves 'Boy' kit I picked up, just to show that it is just as useful for girls LOs too. The background card is stamped using Autumn Leaves swirls.

It seems appropriate to use a photo of Hannah today of all days, with her best friend who is also going off to university to study biology, but to Wales.

The butterflies were stamped and stitched to the page only down the centre so the wings could be lifted for a 3D look.

Great LO Ann - bet you're one very proud Mum!
