Back to the day job...

So, half term is over and I had to go back to work today. It was difficult getting into gear this morning and being up, dressed, fed and in my car to trundle off to school by 8 o'clock. I'll be used to it by Friday I'm sure - just in time for the weekend!!
The batteries in my camera had run down so I couldn't take any photographs of yesterdays creations so here they are.
First up is Clara, the sweetest little bunny dressed in spring colours. She went off in search of a new home yesterday to my cousin's little girl, Gemma. She saw Bella when she visited last week and decided that her life wouldn't be complete if it didn't include a bunny!
This card is for the latest Daring Cardmakers Challenge, to use something see through. I made a card for my Dad's pal's wife who is going into hospital this week to have a mastectomy, just something to show we are thinking of her I made this cute little tag with acetate, my sizzix and my sewing machine. The prima flowers are trapped inside the pocket and I stamped the word 'hello' directly on the acetate
Now that I seem to have re-discovered my scrapping skills I thought I should 'make hay whilst the sun shines' and I did another layout of our trip to Harrogate. By necessity it's a simple layout, just the photographs, title stamped with Making Memories foam stamps and my pixie alphabet stamps.
