Off To School

Well what a couple of weeks i've had !!!, last weekend we went up to Yorkshire to see the outlaws - whilst there OH and son went to 'Yorkshire Air Museum', while i went shopping at the outlet mall, we all went to 'RHS Harlow Carr' and we met up with OH's best friend and his family. Since we've been back i've also been really busy with one thing and another.

As promised a photo of H and Chloe (I have got permission from Chloe's mum) dressed as a medival knight and princess :

Whilst away i was fortunate enough to win a couple of blog challenges, which still doesn't feel real and is still sinking in, especially as the prizes were with 2 fabby companies and i'm still deciding what to buy from one of them.

Todays card is for son, as he starts school next Monday and as i had made Chloe one already, i thought i had better get on and make his !! I bought this LOTV ages ago, especially for this card - and i wanted to recreate H in is school uniform - black trousers, royal blue sweatshirt, white polo shirt and green pe bag (green for his house colour), but it's taken me ages to get round to doing it, as i didn't know if i would be able to recreate it !!! The papers were bought in a fabby little craft shop in 'Whitby', whilst we were in North Yorkshire in June. I saw the ribbon on Mandy's blog and knew i had to have it.
