Oh dear..

The last time I was on here was a while ago!  Well with my dad's 80th, our 1st holiday in 9 years and the little one starting school it's been a lovely and hectic summer!
Now I will have a bit more time with the monster at school Friday is going to be my blog/craft day!  As the PC was broken it will just have to be a few days late this week!

I will start from where I left off! The last project the Alice In Wonderland book was quite a task so it was nice to get back to something smaller and quicker!

These are the thank you cards and gift bags I made for the kids teachers at the end of term in July.

This was from my son to his pre-school teacher. She is lovely so I spent a bit more time on these!  I found the image of the boy on Google images which was coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.  The blue paper is dainty dots from Create & Craft, the banner is made with a stampin up punch and stamps and everything else is cut out with spellbinder dies.  The ribbon was just from my stash!

The bag papers are Craftwork Cards and the bows are Just Rite dies.  Again everything else is cut with Spellbinders.  The pearl domes are from China, ebay is becoming my friend now I buy in bigger quantaties!

These were for my daughter's PE teacher who she really liked and who was leaving.  He loves rugby so I used Papermania male sports 12 x 12 papers and Tim Holtz rosette dies and that was about it other than a bit of mirri card!  The gift bags are from Create and Craft.

These two were for my daughters teacher and assistant teacher. They were made again with just spellbinder dies, some scrap papers and some ribbon from my stash!  The boarder punch is by Martha Stewart and I used the stampin up punch and stamps again.  The teacher stamp is just a single one in my stash, possibly from a magazine!

Well that takes me up to the end of July!  August birthday's and an emotional photo album next week!
