DSB - Boy with books

Last Friday was a big day for my son as it was his very last day at Primary School. I have to say that the final year has been a whirlwind, what with SATs, residential trips and a massive and of school production but the final day ended up being a real tear jerker as we sat in the leavers assembly whilst the whole year sang True Colours by Cyndi Lauper and memories of the kids favourite times at the school. It is very strange to think that a place I have visited daily for the last seven years will now no longer be a part of mine or my son's lives.

That said, the day ended full of smiles with the children leaving from the main entrants, woth the teachers doing a guard of honour for them, followed by a pool party on what had to be one of the hottest days of the year.

Of course there were a few cards to be made for the occasion, so I got busy with my serif and my Niwits Live and Learn papers, coupled with some Digistamp Boutique images........the ultimate combination for teacher cards!

Here are two of the cards that I made, and a picture of the insert too, which I hoped would make a nice keepsake for the teachers concerned.

So - out with the old and a new door opens as my sons moves in to Secondary School in September......something tells me I'm not going to have my little boy for too much longer!

Here are some lovely challenges that I would like to enter today.

Thanks for visiting today.
