Off to School

 A mini Scrapbook for my granddaughter who is off to school this time. Will just need to get some piccies of the first day, then will finish the inside off.

Been a long time since my Zutter was dusted down and played with. Off course where had I put the wee instruction booklet in one of my rare tidy up moods. No point in relying on my dizzy head! It can make things up without encouraging it to lol! Anyway, wasn't to long in finding it and got  creating. My first Scrapbook. When I bought it I had all intentions of  making loads of wee keepsakes, well it's finally happening, better late than never, dare I say, three/four years down the line!

Mo Manning image, she is so much fun I think

The finished article and I made two. One for Robbie going off to Nursery. Watch out for it coming in a couple of weeks. Yes so organised!!!!!!

Gorgeous little book Carol. Naomi will love it. Really nice for her to keep. Poppy got her card before she went off to school last Tuesday and she was really chuffed. Bit of a last minute make as I thought the schools in Perthshire went back at the same time as Aberdeenshire!

Talking of Zutters mine hasn't been out of its box in a long time. Like you I bought it with good intentions!!
