And these amazing bits and pieces......
Here's my first layout using it. We took these pics of Max at the caravan. He was so sweet painting this cow, he really took his time and concentrated so hard.
Sorry the picture isn't great, I'm still in my pj's so I didn't really wanna go outside! Here's a close up, it's hard to see but I added some embossing powder to edges of the corrugated letters for a kind of distressed effect.
And finally a bit of a funny story. On tuesday I was in Reception helping out and I heard the teacher say that she should make a badge for the special person and the helper. So on Thursday morning I had a spare half an hour so I whizzed this up out of scraps using the Sizzix and laminator........
On Thursday afternoon I popped in to give it to her on my way to year 1. She loved it and thanked me and I went on my way. About 20 minutes later she appeared in year 1's classroom looking a little sheepish and produced from behind her back the Special Person badge in two pieces. It turned out that she had accidently left it on the art table and one of the children had cut it in half! She was hugely apologetic but I just found it so funny, at least I hadn't taken long over it! Anyway it's all mended now and looks (almost) as good as new!
I have a couple of LO's planned for today so hopefully I'll be back later.
Have a lovely Sunday xx
