Bumpa was picking them up on his school bus to take them for their first day of kindergarten. Suddenly they are graduating!!! How can that be? But yes it's true, Rachel and Jonathan will be graduating today from Monck Public School. A day that will be filled with excitement and then sadness as they move on to become High School students.
Here's a happy moment they've shared in the past.
No doubt tomorrow they will NOT look like either of these photos, however Jonathan will have his ball cap on! He ordered a very special one to complement what he's wearing for his graduation, so we'll have to wait on those photos.
Of course our households have been busily creating for this special day with gifts and card for teachers, which will no doubt be shared with you later.
Tonight though you can have a peek at the graduation cards I've made for them both and maybe you can figure out what they will be wearing tomorrow. The scrolls on each of the cards have some words of what I hope are wisdom for each of them as they move on to this next step in life.
Last week I was looking for some needlework ideas to share with you and came across this...isn't it cute!
I did find these to share with you though.
Two very lovely cross stitch patterns from DMC's archives and better still, the charts are available here and free to boot! If you're in need of the floss, then drop into the store we have a full compliment of DMC colours.
On Saturday one of our customers was asking me about the "sandwich" to use when cutting with Nestabilities dies on the Cuttlebug. I diligently wrote it all down for her on a card so that she could keep it as a reference, then forgot to give it to her!
So Fay this is for you, I've made a visual reminder of the "sandwich" layers.. The "recipe" for cutting and embossing on your Cuttlebug machine.
I was just wondering, were you one of the early birds that picked up their free Scrapbooking and Cards Today magazine? I handed out lots of them on Saturday, so hopefully you won't be disappointed and miss out on this full and inspiring issue. All you have to do is drop into the store, spend $20.00 and you'll receive this great magazine.
Until Later...Happy Crafting
