Here comes the sun....at last!!!
Isn't summer just wonderful when it finally arrives? I have had the most wonderful few days. We broke up on Friday and I came home with lots of very lovely pressies from children in my class (HUGE thanks to all those very generous Mums and Dads!). I did feel a little sad that I had to say "Tata" to my lovely little girlies who I have supported all year, but I know they're both moving on to bigger and better. A few weeks ago I announced that I had been successful in bagging myself a permanent TA post which I am really excited about. However, where an opening like this occurs, it means that we're having to say goodbye to one of my most favourite people. Our lovely Chris took early retirement on Friday and I used this week's Midweek Magnolias theme which is a photo inspiration to make her card. Here is the yummy photo:
Suzi! I'm going to show this off at MDUC too as their theme this week is Fun with Paper Doilies.
For the staff I made a few of these tealight candle cards:
The beach huts are my own drawing. I adore beach huts but I wanted some "shabby" one's so had to resort to making my own. The tealights are vanilla scented and perfect for my seaside project. Unfortunately though, I bought these earlier in the year from Morrisons when they were beginning to launch their Jubilee paraphanalia and I only bought the one pack. I wish I'd bought more now, but they're not available any more :o(
I've just got back from a lovely long weekend in Devon and we spent a fab afternoon at the beach in Dawlish, so with the smell of salty air still fresh in my nostrils, the blazing sun in the sky and a few lovely relaxing weeks ahead of me, I am going to get my pencils out and do some more sketching. There's a lot of jobs to do before the end of the holidays, but I fully intend to spend some of this precious time on myself!
Hope you're having lovely weather where you are. Please go visit my lovely friends over at Midweek Magnolias and see some of the amazing projects they're created this week to tempt you to playing along.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week :o) xx
