End of an era

Yes we have finally hit the last day of Year 6 for the last child. Its a busy day today.
Carys went off to school with her teacher present which we finished last night. I've been to watch her show and am about to go out for a meal before picking her up and then getting ready for the choir concert tonight. Somewhere in between some very wet boys will arrive home as they have a half day.
I won't show you the photos of the last day yet as I want to do a quick post about the dare this week.
It is Lynne's first dare which seems unbelievable as she has been part of the group for, like, forever - or so it seems. She is so talented and so lovely.
SO here is the dare and it's a good 'un.
I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets.
Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that.
Get the idea?

Pockets and Pockets of Pockets.

Mine has a pocket on a pocket.

The paper is Crate Paper Samantha. I used my sewing machine for the pocket. Need a bit of practice but it is good fun! It almost all comes straight from the Crate kit -The big tag was ready made, the pull on the little tag was from a cardstock strip etc, etc. Just added some distress ink edging, one fabric flower and some of my bargain Poundland bling.

I'll post with the rest of my news soon. I am about to go out in the torrents. May need to sail back!

Aww Lythan, I know how sad you’ve been about Carys leaving this school but I’m sure that she’ll do just fine at her new school judging by her report.
Sending you both lots of love and hugs all the same.
