So much for my scissor-break!
On Thursday morning, L says to me "I'm a bit sad today because Miss L is leaving". Miss L is a student teacher who has been working on placement in L's class for 6 weeks. "When's that hun?" I ask. "Today" he says. Thanks L! I had to get my skates on, despite my virus, because I also had to make an Easter Bonnet for the next day. I grabbed my new favourite punch and some new papers that I have dying for an excuse to break open and set about a speedy card and book mark.
The Portobello Road collection is perfect for this coming Summer with the Jubilee celebrations and the Olympics. I'm tempted to hold a party just so that I can use this collection to make appropriate invites and cupcake decorations! I used the coordinating stamps to make the little postcard greeting.
The bookmark didn't come out quite the way I wanted but that point I was already hyperventilating over the hat (more on that in another post) and I was wishing I had gone to the shop and bought a card and an Easter egg.
I'm happy that the children are on Spring break / Easter hols now as we could all do with a few slow days. Not much chance of that for a few more days yet though as it is a certain young lady's 3rd birthday on Monday. In an effort to help me, Management has bought a cake. I am in pieces. I have never bought a cake for any of the 7 birthdays my children have had so far. They have always been baked and decorated with fondant in an age appropriate design by my own fair hands (with much mess, stress and swearing!) Hey ho, its all downhill from here. I did make her card though, I'll share that in my next post.
Bye for now
