I Was Taken Out For Lunch Today

I picked Dave up from work and we went and had an early lunch together
Rather nice
Thank you :)
I did 2 lots of parent help this morning
Helped Jessica’s class make some 3D shapes with straws and Blu Tack
And then helped Elizabeth’s with some literacy
Lucy came home with this today


it’s more of an encouragement award than anything
I think the teacher is working her way through the class so they all get one :)
But Lucy thought it was the best and was so proud
Went round showing and telling everyone :)
Megan started a drama class today after school
Adds to the list of run-around-things but she loved it :)
Speaking of Megan, here is the page I made for this months Kraft It Up challenge
Using Kraft and one monochrome colour
I used grey


The page contains a letter
She wanted to read it NOW
but I have told her it’s for when she’s older
Will see if curiosity kills the cat lol


Used some Studio Calico rubons


some bakers twine


dyed a doily, added it to a shipping tag with a Such Sweet Tierney chipboard button, cut in half of course ;)


I added some dimensional magic dots
Made my own grey colour crackle paint with some Tim Holtz white and black


and there you go :)
Julie, you asked a question, some posts back, about stitching over the thickers.
I was going to answer and always remembered AFTER the computer was off!
I have smacked myself around so that I would remember and the answer is…
My machine is on tension setting 4.
The kids have played with the tension before so it has been up and down
But I’ve had no problem stitching over the alphas
It goes through them like a knife through butter ;)
So if it’s not the tension I have no clue how to help you lol
Thanks for asking and, again, sorry for not answering straight away :)

Pin It Now!
