London Calling!

Hello, apologies for the lack of blogging I've done recently...it seems there just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want to!!

My eldest son has now left Primary School...onwards and upwards to High School, I had his Leaver's Assembly on Friday which was very unorganised, funny and sad all in equal measure and despite me realising sometime ago he was ready to move on I still ended up biting my lip and shedding a tear. He also walked away with some great SATS results and as a reward is now the proud owner of a silver ball stud earring!!

Knowing what I was like at School I did allow him to get everyone to sign his shirt and wow they certainly did including teachers and dinner ladies and it looks lovely hanging on the coat hanger so I couldn't resist a couple of shots.




I also managed to scrap a layout of my youngest son during Christmas 2006, yes I know its July but I scrap the boys albums in date order and it always seems to fall that way. I used BG Fruitcake and some of their Christmas stamps, a 7 Gypsies stamp, and some Making Memories Christmas twill used on the reverse to make the layout look like a present. The title is small and is called 'Delight' from a stamp set by Hero Arts.


Now I really must disappear as we are heading into London tomorrow for an overnight stay. We're taking the boys to Legoland and the London Eye as well as a little sight seeing. I am also meeting a very special friend from UKS for coffee, cake and plenty of chat so I will blog on my return :)

Enjoy the sunshine while we've got it!! xxx

That is such a lovely idea for everyone to sign the shirt. Good memories I still look at my scrapbook that people signed from school and that was a jolly long time ago!!!

Lovely layout.

My son had his done last year when he left primary and he has now screwed it up in a ball at the bottom of his wardrobe but my daughter's has pride of place on a coat hanger even though she left primary 5 years ago.
