Back in (blog-)town

Shame on's been 6 months since I blogged, I guess sometimes life just gets sooo busy...
Anyway, I haven't given up on scrapping, duh! I couldn't imagine living without it!
And I also continued reading my favourite blogs ;-)

Last Tuesday another milestone passed for Manu, who spend his last day in "kindergarden". As of September 1st, he will be going to the first grade and start to learn reading and writing, a big step and he can't wait to start the journey.
He spend this year in the dolphin-class with Miss Peggy, who is truly the best teacher I have ever met. Normally one of the moms collect some money and creates a gift for the teacher where all kids have been working on together. This year, she had made little dolphins in gypsum (gips) and let the kids paint them.

I wanted to do something separate for the teacher and created a carton box from a small pastry box (taartendoos). Inside was a letter and a lot of small gifts like chocolate, sweets, ....This is how it turned out. I put cardboard at the bottom, top and sides to make it more solid. To keep the lid down, I added a self-made charm made from an old neklace, metal flowers and a bead. Papers are from My Mind's Eyes.
She was very happy with it and will use it to put her jewelry in.

I'm attending the pizzabox day at Tiny's next saturday. The design team received a full pizabox of goodies and we were asked to create some lay-outs so the other workshop'ers can lift it or use an idea for their own projects. I can show pictures of these lay-outs only on Sunday.

In the meantime, enjoy the summer!
