Alex is ultra excited about having spent another half day at school today. He really does like it and he is very fond of his new teacher and class room assistant and can't wait to start school properly. As far as he is concerned September can't come soon enough!
Crafting wise I have continued with my Christmas scrapbook by documenting an event that was a tradition from my own childhood...opening stockings in my parents bed, only this year it was my son and his cousin who were opening their stockings in the same bed! I used a subtle vintage colour scheme as it fits with the colours of my Mum and Dad's room and followed this weeks Pencil Lines sketch. This also fits with the Simon says stamp and show 'stitching', DYSU 'sew', Kaboodle Doodles 'scissors' (I used them to cut round the stamped stocking image), Fresh Brewed 'three of a kind' (3 gems), The pixie cottage 'ribbon', Stamp, scrap and doodle 'cream, brown and one other' (blue in my case).
I have also made a birthday card for my uncle who turns 60 next month. I used my recent steampunk images for this so it fits with Gingersnaps 'cogs, gears and watch parts', Penny's challenge 'Happy Birthday' and Stampavie 'birthday' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
