First day back at school – Miriam Thomas

First day back at school

| Posted in Cardmaking

It was first day back at school today after the big Summer holiday.  Jared started Year 2 and Erin and Adam commenced Pre-Primary.  It was Erin and Adam’s first full day.  Last year they attended 4 half days and this year they will attend 5 full days.  All three of them were absolutely exhausted when I collected them at 3 o’clock.  Apparently they all enjoyed themselves but I haven’t heard much about their day yet.  Hopefully they’ll have some time to recover from the day and we might hear some more about it around the dinner table.   I haven’t uploaded any photos from this morning as I don’t have my camera here with me but I don’t think I will have any good shots.  It was far too chaotic for anything nice!

It was quite surreal just having Luke at home with me- Very quiet- Very strange.  Yet….. I didn’t have a very productive day.  I think I spent most of the day was spent watching the clock and wondering what they would be doing. 

I didn’t even manage a layout or a card but I have card I photographed a few days ago that I can show you.

I have another gate fold card to show you.  This card was for one of my nephews who celebrated his birthday on Friday.  For this card I made use of the extra folded area and created pockets on either side of the birthday message to slide in 20 dollar notes.  He is at the age where money seems to be the most longed for gift.  At least he will be able to buy something cool for himself!   I have used the “It’s your birthday” stamp set plus a few accents from the Crew Kids Boy Scrappin’ Kit as well as East Coast Prep patterned paper.  Oh and a few pieces of Silver Hodgepodge Hardware
