Carys went to her year 6 leavers party (meal and bowling) today. There was a "Grease" theme apparently. Without buying anything new or making something (perish the thought) we scraped together this.
She has decided that she doesn't really like make up. I'm sure I was plastered in it by her age!
Actually I find it a little scary on her - I can see glimpses of an older girl. Just thinking abut her leaving year 6 makes me cry. I am going to show her up good and proper on Friday!
Some of the mums were telling me what a lovely girl she is. I blame the parents myself...
Carys is currently helping Phil finish off his NOCN Level 3 Teaching Parenting Classes Course. I hope she remembers all the good advice when she hits puberty.
As I was working this afternoon and evening I spared some time this morning to finish off my black and white (and red) layout. Yes I have a thing about black and white (and red). (and red) is my fave colour. I wear a LOT of black (that semi Goth thing never quite goes away you know) and I'm, um, very white.
It's an 8.5x11 page (loving this size). I used some old acetate (actually pants quality as it is v. thin and shiny, buy there you go). Some I painted the back red and then wrote on the front with a black Sharpie. Other bits I stamped with Banana Frog circles and painted on the back before writing. The advantage with the paint is that you can then put tape or glue on the back and you can't see it! Top strip is adhered using red staples. Papers are from SA June kit (the one I said I couldn't see me using any of on a layout) and Scrapagogo charity kit (the dotty paper). Fashion victim was stamped using my brand new Fontwerks stamps. Honestly, just go to their website and you can pick up seconds for a bargain price even including postage - as long as you can wait! There is usually one stamp that has come out wrong and they send a replacement anyway. Brilliant.
And then the best bit of all, the heart with wings comes from I made this today and is absolutely awesome. Expect to see it again soon!
