School Scrapbook page

This is my Granddaughter's School Scrapbook page I have been asked to do.
Last year the Head charged me with putting together a school scrapbook to keep safe all the achievements the children and indeed the whole school have reached.
This page was dedicated to the Centenary Celebrations held in school to look back over the past ten decades.
 All the younger children were dressed in the present decade, and the older ones dressed in a decade  from when the school was first opened. They then all "buddied" up together to have a history lesson covering huge events such as the sinking of the Titanic, the launch of silent movies, to music of the '20s.
The Head said later, he thought this event had sparked a greater interest in history. The children were actually asking more about historic events which can only be a good thing. 
Past pupils were all invited to join in too, the oldest being 76 yrs old. 

Well done all who participated.
Bye for now.

Mothers Day gifts

 A little shadow box picture with a lovely verse and some fabric roses to decorate...Ideal for Mother's Day
  Wooden Heart with small hang tag heart with the verse and vintage with Tim Holts inks.  
Another more modern style for the younger Mother out there who loves animal print. This time the wooden heart is popped on top with a tiny wooden heart with the initial M which can be done with the mother's initial if you wanted to..

Bye for now everyone..

Two little gifts all read ready for Valentine's
The first is a shadow box picture with French letter background with the red word LOVE imprinted on top. 
Next is a little padded heart door hanging with an image from Graphics Fairy printed directly on to the fabric. Then a small wooden heart tag tied up with jute string.
I have been so long away from my blog I feel I have been neglecting things so tell the truth I had been so busy on the run up to Christmas and then spent 6 weeks with our daughter and hubby and little granddaughter  in Virginia to be there for the birth of their little bundle of joy "Jaxen Jarad" who arrived 30mins before we reached the hospital just in time for a few cuddles. Oh he is soooo sweet and the family is now complete............nope no more grandchildren from those two lol! 
Then on our return I have been working on some goodies for the next event which will be Valentine's and then for us in the UK Mothers day in March.
Hope you like my little bitty things.
Bye for now.
